Ideas to Improve Your Outdoor Space
Plants soften the uncompromising lines of hardscape features, breathing life into them and inviting you in to sit down and relax.

But you can grow almost anything in a container. The idea of using plants on your patio can even help you avoid the costly project of removing an old patio and constructing a new one, as plants are capable of hiding many an eyesore.
