What I like about this planter is it's magnificence. It is grand and graces this large Rosedale house perfectly. The image I had in mind when planting this was a wedding cake. I wanted the planter to be over the top to stand out more than other planters in the neighbourhood.
What I like about these planters is the repetition along with a mix of traditional elements alongside chaos. The ivy trees, although very tamed and traditional are made free with fine Bacopa and bold Creeping Jenny draping over the planters edges
What this customer wanted was a splash of colour when she looked out her back window. These low maintenance planters add just the right amount of colour without the additional work.
This planter was planted as an early spring planter. I loved that all flowers in the pot could be transferred to the garden to enjoy next spring as well.
My sweet customer Sara asked for a planter that screamed colour and this is what I came up with. What I like about this planter is that is was being planted in late spring so has a variety of spring plants which die slowly allowing summer plants a chance to spread and grow to take over their places once spring plants are removed.
We travelled all the way to Highpark for this special customer who need not only planters done but an entire yard cleaned up and dressed up for a house inspection. They did manage to rate high enough to finance the addition they dreamed of!
This elegant customer actually used the word quiet to describe what she was looking for as the look for her planters. I like this planter because even though this Rosedale house is set back from the street, by using big bold heads in white we were still able to draw attention to the gorgeous entrance.
Very unique planter which is actually a converted bird bath.
Clean look, lot's of repetition, and the use of lavender for fragrance. All these ideas are awesome!
ideal way to use planters for herbs. The repetition of simple small containers works and using small pots ensures managing herbs remains low maintenance.
Use of a planter or water feature as focal point in a large garden is smart.
