Landscape Makeover Part 2

Selecting Containers

To review the container selection process we flashback to the garden center and Eric's interaction with Crystal. Crystal believes containers are a great way to add splashes of color and a different element to the garden. Eric likes using containers in his garden to contain plants that grow a little faster or for plants that are a little more aggressive than he would want and they allow him to keep plants in one place. Choosing a container can be a challenge and Crystal's garden center has thousands of options. Crystal believes when choosing a container that first one needs to know where you want to place it because that will provide an idea of the size of the pot. Once you have an idea about size, next look at color. Color can have a dramatic effect on how your landscape looks based on the color of the wall behind the container or the color of the plants going in the container. Also, note the drainage the pot allows because some don't have drainage holes, they're really intended for water features rather than plants. Good drainage is important.
