Areas that can’t be planted, can be potted.

Sometimes our yards make decisions for us. Landscaping woes can happen when there is a pipe running through the hole you just dug, a tree that’s a little too ambitious about establishing roots or cement that poured itself right where you want the perfect plant. Well, don’t let those woes stop you from turning your garden into your paradise.

In those hard to garden areas, place pots that scream style or water fountains that overflow with tranquility. Those garden areas will come alive by turning that pitiful garden spot into a potted paradise.

Notice a terracotta pot trying to hide in the foreground, the bold blue pots under the eave and the fountain in the background. This savvy gardener (who lives right here in the Central Valley) mixed and matched textures and colors of pots, adding interest to the beautiful setting.
