Decorating Your DeckDecorating Your Deck

A deck is a great way to add outdoor living space to your house, and with a little thought and imagination you can make it beautifully stylish. Add a deck railing around the edges and consider unique seating.  Then incorporate flower boxes to add interest and introduce color.

Planter Liners for the Flower Boxes on Your Deck

 

Once you have finished decorating your deck with flower boxes, you will want to use planter liners to either protect the planters, to encourage healthy plant growth, or both. There are various types of planter liners available that are suitable for use in virtually every type of flower box, container or biodegradable coco planters.

Whether you have planted your own flower boxes or bought them ready-made, plastic planter liners or biodegradable coco planter liners will extend their life by preventing them from rotting. These planter liners are available pre-formed, or you can cut what you need from a large roll.

 

You can even use ordinary plastic saucer types as planter liners, but then you will need to allow for drainage, either by making holes in the planter liners. The best off-the-shelf planter liners include plastic or biodegradable coco planter liners, which provide some sort of drainage to prevent the plants from becoming waterlogged.

 

Innovative self-water, self-irrigating planter liners are a great time saver for busy people who either don’t have the time, or forget to water their plants, however can be quite costly. These plastic planter liners come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, usually with an insert that must be filled with water once every two or three weeks. These planter liners often take away the guesswork of how much water you need to give your plants because they monitor the moisture levels.

Suitable alternative types of planter liners are made from biodegradable coco fibers.  Coco planter liners are readily available, and they absorb moisture nicely helping to keep the plants in a healthy environment. Coco planter liners are also inexpensive and add a natural appeal to outdoor décor.
