Get the most from your Balcony

Posted on 11/04/13 09:15 In Balcony Containers, Planters

With the rise in city and even town living, many of us these days find ourselves living in apartments or homes where the garden is merely the size of a postage stamp. But those of us who love our greenery will always find a way to bring the outdoor inside via our balconies.

 

So what does this involve – this shrunken garden type living? Well, because space is so tight your design and planning have to be meticulous of course to make the most of what’s there. And that’s what we’re going to look at here in this blog post.

Garden Planters for small spaces

Posted on 12/03/13 21:02 In Balcony Containers, Contemporary Planters, Garden Planter News, Luxury Planters, Patio Pots, Planters, Steel Planters

 
Most of us nowadays have very little space and time for gardening.  We lead busy lives, and often live in small city flats.  Our outside space is a small courtyard, or perhaps a balcony, and we don’t have the time to tend lots and lots of plant pots.  But we still want that outside space to be fabulous, and we all want something that will impress our visitors!  So what can Precious Design offer?
 
How about one or two ‘statement’ galvanised steel planters?
 
Precious Design has a great range of ready-made metal planters in some amazing designs.  Some of my favourites for a balcony or similar space are the Stucco Prism plant containers – beautiful modern-looking galvanised steel planters, with an attractive stucco finish which can also be coloured. They’re perfect for small spaces since the zinc content protects them from corrosion should the surface get scratched.
 
But if none of those suit, you could use our custom design service to create one or more unique, bespoke garden planters.  Our team can design and make you beautiful plant containers that will be absolutely unique, and give you a perfect talking point.  You can choose the design and the material, and each one will be made to order, and precision cut.
 
And then you can choose a plant  or plants to fill your new garden planters: perhaps a fabulous architectural Cordyline to emphasise the height, or maybe some colourful sweet peas to drape over the edges of the pot and fill your balcony with their beautiful scent?  The choice is yours…
 

Group your Garden Planters for maximum effect

How do some people manage to get their garden planters and garden plant pots to look so much more fabulous than yours even though they’re using the same plants? Well, part of the answer is by displaying several large planters together. But you can’t just put five garden planters in the same place and hope for the best. So what should you do to improve your display?

There are a few basic rules:

1) Use odd numbers of planters. For some reason, the human eye prefers groups of odd numbers (this rule works in flower arranging, too). Three or five plant containers together look much better than two or four.

2) Keep it (relatively) simple. Have a ‘hook’ that brings your group of plant containers together as a set – either colour, or style, or shape similarities: a group of galvanised planters in different sizes, for example. Too much variety and you will just have a mass of flower pots, not a group.

3) Use plant containers of varying heights. Precious Design can supply different heights in the same range of beautiful metal planters, or you can mix and match different heights from different ranges. Put the tallest ones at the back, and the smaller ones at the front.

4) Try three colours in the same range, but different sizes. Check out our galvanised steel planters in the shape of a cube – use large, medium and small, choosing colours from the wide range available, with plants to complement the container colours. This will give your display a whole new level of sophistication and elegance.
