It’s easy to see the appeal of container gardening in home and garden trends these days. Projects like growing your own small-space vegetable garden or DIY-ing a stylish, indoor planter are everywhere on the web. My favorite container gardening ideas are fresh, modern – relying on traditional garden design themes and updating the look with materials and patterns. Take a look at these containers below for some inspiration!
Unique containers & trendy patterns are super popular in the blogosphere right now. Whether you’re DIY-ing a pattern-painted coconut container or a macrame hanging planter, your customers are seeing these images on their favorite blogs and on Pinterest.
Containers that glow are a great addition to an evening party. What a neat idea!
Just like with interior design, mixing traditional & modern shapes always creates a timeless yet updated look. The traditional look of the obelisk is updated with the shape and material of these concrete planters.
And rather than the traditional rectangular raised garden bed, why not grow your own vegetables in these modern concrete containers? Grow as many as you want if you have plenty of space or an apartment dweller can fit one container on a balcony.
