Deck Decorating

 

 

 

Decorating with outdoor plants is a great way to create visual interest and add a personal, stylish touch to your deck. Incorporating living elements is an easy way to bring color and texture to any outdoor design. The variety of shapes and the range of color available in outdoor plants make your deck design choices unlimited.

Container planters, available in a wide variety of styles, shapes and sizes, offer you the most design versatility. Choose containers that will reflect your own sense of style and design and complement your home and outdoor space.

If you’re decorating a deck you’re in luck. There are many products, like coco-lined planters, specifically made to adorn the rails that surround your deck from fitted rail planters to hanging horse trough styles and baskets made specifically to fit corners and posts.

When considering your design plan, create visual interest by varying the heights of your greenery. You can mix floor planters with plant stands in an assortment of heights and styles. Add hanging plant varieties like spider plants and ferns alternating with flowering varieties to add color and contrast. Plants can even be suspended upside down for a unique and eye-pleasing display by using coco-lined planters. Potted trees such as the ficus and palm also are great for adding height and drama to the space.Deck decorating - Lush green deck

Choose greenery that will complement the overall appearance of your home. For stunning display results, mix foliage plants with flowering plants and space the plants close to one another to create a full, lush appearance. Don’t be afraid to really pack them in there. You’ll achieve a much grander effect.

Add to your outdoor entertaining, fun, and leisure by showing your style and making your deck a showcase for a stunning display of ornamental foliage and flowers.
