The average yard size has shrunk by as much as 26 percent since the 1970s. Not only has our need for larger homes increased, but the sections on which they are built are getting smaller too. As a result, more and more people are turning to garden pots to give them a sense of garden, instead of sprawling lawns and immaculate flower plots.
Garden pots are the epitome of versatility. Not only can they blend in with an established garden, but can take on the form of one when apartment life sees a real one impossible. The market for garden pots is growing by the day, and so is the variety.
You can now walk into a store only to find yourself overwhelmed by the selection. So, how do you know which garden pots are for you? Ask yourself the following questions.
- Where Will I Put it?
The location of your new garden pot can be the deciding factor. It has to complement its surroundings, blend in with your lawn, but stand out at the same time. For example, you would choose an edgy, contemporary pot for a formal setting, but a traditional garden pot for a cottage-like setting. How much space you have can dictate its size too.
