Decorating Your PatioDecorating Your Patio

There are so many different patio designs that we can use to improve our outdoor living, it is often difficult to know where to start. Two important aspects you need to consider in your patio designs are function and décor. These relate to what you will use your patio for and what it will look like.

Plant Stand Tips

 

The addition of a plant stand on your patio will add interest and color. There are a myriad of options, not only for the plant stand itself, but also for the containers, plants and flowers you can display. Here are some tips to help you choose a suitable plant stand.

 

Decorating Your Patio - plants stands

  1. A plant stand for any patio needs to be made from a material that will withstand outdoor conditions, even if the patio is covered, should be treated for rust by galvanizing, powder coating or painting.

     

  2. Another type of plant stand is often referred to as a basket stand, lined with biodegradable coco fiber. These are great for a natural look, but durable as well.

     

  3. A plant stand is an ideal place to display variations of one sort of plant – an approach that works beautifully when decorating your patio. Examples include different colored petunias, or a collection of impatiens.

     

  4. A plant stand may be used to display interesting grasses and ornaments, not only plants.

     

  5. Use a plant stand at one end of the patio as a focal point.

     

  6. Floor planters are also a variation of a plant stand, only they are positioned closer to the floor.

     

    Decorating Your Patio - plant stands

  7. A decorative metal type of plant stand typically holds any size plant containers, or pots. They come in a wide variety of styles and colors.

     

  8. Specialty plant stand versions come in many shapes and sizes. Some examples include oblong shaped plant stands, a tiered plant stand that sits on the floor and extends upwards, and plant stand trees with arms that hold plant baskets.
