Containers come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and textures, and often are prized as art objects that become even more beautiful over time. Outfitted with permanent, all weather plants or seasonal plantings for changeable color, containers provide distinctive garden accents that help define space and draw the eye. Perhaps the most flexible of landscaping mediums, containers can be used to provide structure for a garden by defining rooms or paths. Often, for courtyard or patio homes, containers provide the only planting space.
