The benefits of Deck Planters by: Glenn Mast
A good way to attract butterflies, hummingbirds, squirrels and lots of other creatures is to grow plants that attract those types of critters. For anyone with a strong interest in nature or the environment, a garden full of God's creatures is a pleasant place to be, and enjoy!
If you don't have acres and acres of space for your private garden and outdoor areas, you may want to consider planters. Planters are made in a variety of sizes and shapes and for a wide range of uses.
Deck Planters are great for moderate sized trees, butterfly bushes and fragrant flowers.
Deck planters are a great way to constantly change your outdoor space as your moods or the seasons dictate. For example, in spring you may want to plant lots of varieties of blooming or fragrant flowers, annuals, bulbs or vines. When Fall, approaches you may want to plant a Japanese Red Maple or evergreens. Your children may even want to grow their own pumpkins.
Deck planters are available in a lot of sizes & shapes to suit the decor of your home.
If you want a more neutral look, stay with a clear stain or an unfinished deck planter. Cedar and Pressure Treated Pine are two of the common woods used in planters and both have rich grains, whether they are finished with a clear stain or left completely natural
Some people have planters to grow vegetables for their families. Even city dwellers love the ability to go out on the balcony or back patio and pluck fresh red tomatoes and some herbs. Deck planters allow those with tiny outdoor spaces an interesting way to add a country feeling to your home setting.
A deck planter can be an exciting way for little kids to learn about plants and how they grow. By planting seeds, watering regularly, ensuring ample sunlight or shade, kids can grow their own miniature garden of goodies.
Although learning about plants from books is also a great way to learn, Teaching, your kids the hands-on method of growing plants, can't be beat. Educators know that being able to see, touch, and smell is excellent ways to reinforce a good educational system.
