Obsessed: Architectural Planters

Posted by


I love the clean, architectural lines of this peaked planter from CB2 ($129). With both high and low shelves, it adds a little visual interest and depth to your patio display and provides plenty of surface area for displaying beautiful pots, such as the colorful rustically hewn versions above. A pretty pot is like a exclamation point on a plant. Check out a few more of container garden ideas below:

These sleek metal planters are actually repurposed steel utility boxes from the hardware story.


This compact tower of stacked pots is beautiful, sure, but it's also a convenient way to grow your own fresh herbs in a small space. Get the how-to.
Masking tape stripes are an easy way to update basic terra cotta pots. Get the how-to.

  • These look great! We are always looking for ideas to add to what we do for our clients. Landscaping is more than just lawns but its an art form and I think to stand out as a business we have to go above and beyond and to find unique ideas. Planters are a good feature to add to any deck or front porch.
