7 Stylish Shady Garden Container Combos To Try

7 shady garden container combos cover

Low light doesn’t have to cramp your creativity or limit your plant choices? You can still create wonderful shady garden containers. For formal containers (which can include contemporary and traditional designs), success depends upon a careful marriage of pot and plants. This sophisticated style calls for restraint in color, embellishment, and plants. Informal designs, on the other hand, can range from fun and frilly to more humble in nature. The choice of pots and their contents will vary according to the specific look you want. Unglazed containers offer the ideal starting point for woodland-inspired containers because they often come in earth tones, whereas other rustic designs can incorporate pastels or bold color schemes, colored ceramic containers, or simple wooden barrels. Look at the ideas below and decorate your garden with these stylish containers!
