WHY SHOULD YOU USE POTS IN YOUR GARDEN?

We give you ten reasons to choose plant pots and flower boxes in your garden!

POTS GIVE YOUR GARDEN EXTRA APPEARANCE, THEY ARE REAL EYE-CATCHERS!

Today’s planters and flower pots look nothing like those of the past. Not only are they very fashionable, they are also stately and iconic. Even without garden plants , the containers have just as much charisma as your furniture and your parasol. It is therefore very easy to give your garden extra appearance with the pots or containers of your taste.

A BIG POT IS A GARDEN IN ITSELF

Today’s outdoor planters and pots are also available in large sizes. And so such a pot has a planting surface of a small garden. You can go in several directions with that. You can experiment with different types of plants and try something new every year. You can even turn it into a herb garden . If your garden is fairly modest, you can add extra color to your garden with 1-year-olds.

YOUR GARDEN GETS EXTRA HEIGHT

One of the basic conditions for Garden Happiness is that half of the green part of your garden should be higher than 90 cm. This is not always easy, especially in small gardens, because taller plants are often also bulky and would therefore take up (too) much space.

With higher, somewhat narrower, upright pots you don’t have that problem and your garden still gets the necessary height element.

YOUR GARDEN GETS EXTRA DEPTH ACTIVITY

Your garden remains exciting if you can oversee it at once. If your view from the terrace or from the inside to the rear is interrupted by vertical elements, you get depth and tension at the same time. Pots and planters have the same function as hedge blocks or green columns.

WITH POTS YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR GARDEN IN EASY

Perhaps we are exaggerating a bit because of course you don’t immediately take up your entire garden and you don’t move a very large heavy pot that easily, but it is of course possible. You can think of a few large pots as flexible green elements. By occasionally giving them another place in the garden, the garden image changes completely.

POTS ARE IN EVERY TASTE!

Flower pots and planters can give your garden an extra look, but then it is nice if they are also available in your taste and match well with the chosen furniture or hardware, such as the pavement and garden fence . In Appeltern we like to work with pottery and baking from Nieuwkoop Europe BV because they simply have everything. Every colour, every size and every type of material: ceramic, plastic, metal.. really every taste is available!

POTS ARE WEATHER AND CLIMATE RESISTANT

Did you ever have the problem of discoloration or frost damage in the past, with today’s pottery you can enjoy carefree gardening all year round. They are colorfast and frost resistant! If something can go wrong, it has to do with, for example, that the water in the pot cannot escape because the hole in the bottom is closed or because plants have been chosen that do not get enough root space.

POTS MAKE THE TERRACE LARGER AND SMALLER

We already said that you can always give your garden a different look by placing the pots in a different place in the garden. But you can also use them by enlarging and reducing your terrace.

Alone or with two people on a terrace that is too large is not pleasant and vice versa it is useful if your terrace is a bit more spacious when a large group comes. With a hand truck it is all so squeaky!

HOLIDAY FEELING IN YOUR OWN GARDEN

Of course you could always put tropical plants in your garden, but they often look ugly just among the normal plants. And if they are not frost-resistant, digging out and storing them in winter is a hassle. With planters you separate your tropical accents from your basic greenery, so that they fit better and you can put them in winter storage more easily in the winter.

GARDENING IS EASY AND PLEASANT

It sounds logical, and it is: if your plants are higher, you simply have to bend less.

With plants at eye level you are also nice and close to your most favorite plant species . On balance, that feels nice and gives extra satisfaction with the care. The somewhat larger pots are also easier to control in terms of nutrition and watering than plants in the open ground.
