1. Practical issues
Some of the main reasons that stand out are the following. The containers can be moved in the most appropriate and necessary way; some are even on wheels and are available in all sizes. In addition, they are increasingly made of light and robust modern materials. Above all, you can move them quickly from areas prone to deer and other hungry animals and place your plants in a protected place, such as a bridge, patio, sheltered veranda or even indoors.
It is possible to avoid the need for fences in some cases. Planters can be moved based on the amount of sunlight needed. You get flexibility of all kinds, like planting flowers in windows and on railings or walls. You can easily continue to change your decor.
2. Beautify the open spaces of the houses
Choosing containers is a wonderful way to express your personal tastes. You can use contemporary, traditional, eclectic or contrasting styles to make a statement. This will be recognized by visitors the moment they go up to your house. This can be done by decorating the letter box, having large planters on the driveway and at the entrance to your home.
My favorite place in my house is my deck which I surrounded with azaleas and ground cover, and on the deck I had colorful flowers that would have been eaten if they had been outdoors and unprotected from fencing except for large azaleas. One of the flowers that I was able and planted, however, without the deer that ate them were ears of lamb, lavender. Some ferns also survived.
In the gardens of terraced houses and town houses, I am surprised in these days of how owners and tenants have transformed small spaces thanks to the intelligent artistic use of planters and a variety of vases some made with old objects that they had in the past. These features often adapt well to decorative milestones or small raised garden beds. The raised beds make the task much simpler both to establish an adequate soil with less excavations and to reach everywhere to keep the area tidy and beautiful. In that way. they resemble planters and pots.
3. Blurring the interior of houses and apartments
In large open spaces, usually inside contemporary homes, very large planters are sometimes used beautifully as dividers to separate the housing sections for beauty and privacy while maintaining a feeling of open airiness.
The trend in kitchens is that they are open to living areas. This fact makes people even more interested in integrating pots for herbs and plants and flowers to beautify their space and improve air quality. There are many attractive and extravagant planters and supports for indoors and outdoors.
The guests of the house always appreciate a small plant or vase with flowers in the bedroom or bathroom. After all, bathrooms, like kitchens, have become an important place for relaxation and for the joy of the eyes. I find that for plants, small plants or pots usually work better, but obviously it all depends on the size of the space and your tastes.
These are some highlights on the subject. In conclusion, the reason why decoration and gardening are facilitated and enhanced by planters, pots and vases that are to your liking should be increasingly evident.
