On a property with limited space, or on a wooden deck, containers filled with beautiful plants can “green up” your backyard garden design or front yard landscape design. They can also dramatically enhance a home’s entrance and add value to your garden design.
In most cases, bigger is better when it comes to sizing a container for a landscape design. More soil in a planter means that the soil will stay moist longer and the container will require less frequent watering.
Why hire a landscape designer to specify and install your containers? We can obtain beautiful containers that are unavailable in retail outlets, in quantities and sizes that local stores often do not have. We know what plants and soil mixtures work best and we know how to mix in additives that will retain moisture. We can also design and install container irrigation systems.
Some of the best materials for plant containers include decorative fiberglass that can’t be distinguished from authentic materials such as bronze, copper, stone, terracotta, metal and faux lead.
Container gardens designed by Arbor Green Landscapes can be found in Kalorama, Embassy Row, Cleveland Park and Capitol Hill.
We hired Renee to merge our gallery space and sculpture with nature in our rear courtyard. She was an expert and an enormous help, as well as professional and fun. We love our beautiful container garden and use it every chance we get.”
