Deck Planters/ K OZ organizer of gardening by: Glenn Mast
Recreational gardening is supposed to be a refreshing and relaxing experience, to bring you close to nature and enjoy the fruits of her bounty. It's certainly not meant to be work. Leave back-breaking labor to others and step away from your garden patch.
Deck planter boxes are not only just ideal for gardeners with limited space; they optimize the gardening experience in many ways that traditional gardens cannot.
One of the built-in benefits of deck planter boxes is their ability to move around. Get your plants away from the back corners of your garden and up onto the action of your deck or patio. Treat your party guests to the scent of seasonal, colorful blooms. Grab some fresh basil or mint to spice up salad. You can reap the benefits of nature and have it all right at your fingertips.
Plus, planters can be arranged and rearranged according to size, color and more so your outdoor furniture will never look tired or stale.
Deck planter boxes appeal to the Type A personality in us all by playing up to our inner control freaks. With planters, you can micromanage water and sunlight levels, along with soil content by separating different plants with different needs into their own planters.
With deck planters, you can separate those plants that require direct sunlight, partial sunlight, and shade as well as those that take more or less water. Once they're separated, they can be moved to those areas of your deck which befit their requirements, and then moved again if those environments change.
There's also the luxury of being able to grow all sorts of different plants in separate deck planter boxes that would naturally never survive in the same soil conditions as one another. Some plants, for instance, require different nutrients, or thrive in a more or less acidic soil composition. A desert garden that uses sand instead of soil can have you growing cactuses just a few feet away from your tropical flowers planter.
