Let's All Get Potted - Even in your Desert Landscape

Posted By on Wed, Apr 18, 2012 at 9:45 AM

Creating a container garden is an act of beauty in itself. There is no digging in the ground, which especially in the desert is daunting. Pots can be moved, plantings easily changed and as we grow older (never old), pots can make it easier on our backs as we can sit in a chair to tend them.

A thoughtful creation of a container garden will be a work of art. Be it a combination of colorful flowers – perennials and/or annuals, a single planting, vegetables and herbs, succulents and cacti – a potted garden easily becomes a living, breathing addition to your home’s outdoor living areas or a beautiful welcome for your guests.

Get inspired! Now is the time.
