Place Flower Pots around Your Yard
Do you have a garden nursery near your home? Planning a trip to a local flower nursery can be a fun outing the entire family can enjoy. There are a variety of flowers to look for and you can also learn about the plants by asking staff members any questions. Keep in mind that it’s important to pick out flowers and plants that will survive past the end of summer. For a jolt of color considering picking bright plants that will stand out. Once some of your favorite flowers in pots have been picked out and purchased at a local nursery you can display them in your yard. Place them in different spots for variety as opposed to keeping them all together. The plants will look radiant placed next to a place where guests and your children like to play and socialize.
Spray Flower Pots
After you’ve purchased your flowers you can add even more color to your outside sanctuary by spraying the pots they came in or purchasing better pots where the spray paint will adhere. Terracotta pots are a better selection because the spray will adhere to these pots more as opposed to plastic. You can find these pots at patio and garden stores or home good stores if you don’t see them where you picked up your plants. Whenever you start this project outside put down a newspaper or a painter’s cloth. Also do this project on a calm day when there are no winds. After the pots are painted and have dried enjoy displaying a rainbow of colorful pots and flowers that will look absolutely stunning in your outdoor sanctuary.
