Gardens In Stone Planters For Urban Households

Urban households generally do not have sufficient space for a garden.  They have to make do with keeping pots and planters on terraces or the balconies of their homes.  It helps that any kind of plant, be it a perennial, a house plant, an annual, or a tree, can be grown in stone planters.  While it is difficult to move plants that have been planted on the ground, plants in planters can be moved around for better sun position or for protection from excess rain.

Types Of Garden Planters

Planters come in different shapes and sizes.  They can be placed indoors or outdoors, they can be hung, or placed on a high surface.  Mounted planters made of wood are ideal for the living room space and can give the impression of entering a woody area.  Planters made of clay are the most common and the most affordable, however, they tend to break if handled carelessly.  Plastic pots can be spray painted in the colors of your choice.  Stone garden planters are solid and last forever, however, they are difficult to move around.  Wooden planters have to be treated with preservative or they could deteriorate over time.

Advantages Of Using Stone Planters For Your Plants

The advantage of using stone planters is that the planters can be moved around at times when the plants are in bloom and kept in the background at other times.  The soil can be adjusted to suit different types of plants.  Plants in planters have to be watered and given fertilizers regularly for them to thrive.  Watering may be needed more often if the soil is found to be too dry.  There should be holes or gravel below the soil for sufficient drainage.  The size of the stone garden planters will also vary depending on what type of plants you plan to plant in them, whether they are shallow rooted or deep rooted.
