Pots & Planters
You don’t need an outdoor plot to turn out flowers, herbs, and vegetables like a pro—with a few well-placed pots and planters, you can turn your deck, balcony, patio, house, townhome, or apartment into a flourishing garden. Outside, you can combine railing planters, window boxes, vertical gardening, and patio planters to create a functional and space-saving growing area for sun-loving herbs and vegetables, and give much-needed appeal to areas where traditional landscaping isn’t possible. Indoors, you can have a relaxing green oasis to unwind after the workday, accenting plain spaces, like room corners, coffee tables, and cabinets with shade-tolerant tropical plants and trees.
Including a variety of container plants in and around the home is vital not just for aesthetics, but for maintaining a healthy living space for you and your family. Plants kept in living areas significantly reduce the amounts of harmful chemicals in the air, including formaldehyde, benzene, acetone, and several compounds produced by cleaners and products that can be found in every home. They have also been shown to increase oxygen (which has been linked to higher productivity) and create a calm positive atmosphere that may decrease stress and anxiety.
