Plants are beautiful, but they can make even more of a statement if they are safely nestled inside a planter. Planters come in a variety of shapes, colors and designs (just like plants!), and the right one can make the difference between an amazing back yard and an average one. After you pick out the plants you want to grow this season, choose a unique planter to put it in instead of the old one from your garage. Here are a few of our favorites found in the Corridor to get you started.
