Here in the Tampa Bay area, we enjoy spectacular sunshine all year round. No wonder we love to surround ourselves with lush vegetation and colorful flowers – this is a tropical paradise!
Florida container gardening is a great way to exhibit the beauty of our local flowers, as well as to celebrate our unique tropical lifestyle.
Containers allow us to creatively display the plants, as well as to regulate the amount of sun and shade they receive at different times of the year. Containers can even be brought inside if there is a cold snap, permitting year-round container gardening.
No matter what type of environment which you are trying to create in your landscaping, creative and unique containers can contribute to the overall feeling and mood.
Creative Florida Container Gardening Displays
Succulent Dishes: Cacti and succulents are perfect for our climate. They require very little water and do exceptionally well in bright sunlight. Succulents come in so many colors and varieties, and can be artistically gorgeous.
Although these desert species also thrive in our sandy soil, they make for breathtaking and unique dish gardens which can equally beautify your lanai or sun room.
Wild by Nature: Our environment encourages wildflowers, decorative grasses, and rustic, untrimmed gardens. Combine domesticated container gardening with wild-looking natural plants, reeds, grasses and flowers – and you’ve got a winning Florida display.
Mediterranean Flavor: One of the most visible design elements inherent in South Florida real estate is terracotta color and flair. Whether a tile roof or a rich, warm color scheme, the influence is unmistakable. This popular aesthetic can easily be replicated in your container garden, by adding Mediterranean architectural flair. These structural pots are softened with greenery and delicate florals to grace both patios and entrance ways.
Color and Whimsy: Florida is overwhelmingly lush and green, and pops of color can add dramatic focal points to your yard. By utilizing brightly hued pitchers, vases, buckets, or urns, the eye is drawn to the floral displays you create. Warm palettes which showcase oranges, reds and yellows perfectly offset the cool green of lawns and plants will serve to creating an exciting aesthetic to your home environment.
Cool Blue Vibes: The Tampa Bay area offers sun-drenched days punctuated by cool blue waters and brilliant blue skies. Turn your pool area into a luxurious, serene oasis by adding tall, elegant blue urns which are sleek and contemporary. Reminiscent of Greece or Italy, these containers are modern and exude a cool demeanor perfect for where you relax.
