Decorating Your Urban Spaces

Decorating Your Urban Spaces

Decorating small spaces outdoors or indoors can be quite a challenge. But with careful thought and planning, your small spaces can come alive with plants, flowers and decorative accents you choose to display them in. You can also introduce water features, bird feeders, and specialty planters.

Container Planting is Perfect for Small Outdoor Spaces


container planting - small urban spacesContainer planting with hanging baskets, floor planters, baskets stands, and flower boxes filled with lush foliage or colorful annuals will brighten up dull, unattractive corners and bare spots, especially those in small spaces. So if you enjoy container planting, this is the perfect opportunity to add color and decorate your small spaces.


Container planting isn’t difficult because a huge variety of plants and flowers thrive in just about any type of containers. In fact one thing that is very appealing about container planting is that you can choose a selection of different plants that all have different soil needs. Popular species for container planting include fuchsias, begonias, petunias, geraniums, herbs, small vegetable and fruit plants, and even shrubs.


For container planting to be successful, choose containers that are compatible with your outdoor spaces as well as the contents. The style of container you choose for container planting is a personal one, but if you group them together, it is best to stick to one style and color; a collection of sorts. You can, of course, also use hanging garden baskets for container planting.

Alternatively you might like to use specialty planters, like tricycle and garden cart planters for your container planting. This is a whimsical approach to container planting, but one that often works well in small spaces that lack character.


Whatever containers you choose, you can have a lot of fun with container planting.
