Vases, or flower pots of different sizes, refer to small architectural forms. The materials from which they are made can be very different: ceramics, plaster, wood, concrete.
On sale there are also elite options - marble anda natural stone. Forms with planted plants are installed directly in the open air: on terraces, in courtyards. From the indoor flowerpots for flowers differ in size and location: they are not for indoor use. Such flowerpots on the territory of the theater, restaurant, bank, near the administrative building, as well as in the garden and park area will not only decorate the street, but will also present the plants in a favorable light.
Important: garden flowerpots for flowers should be a single whole with a summer residence site, so you can safely choose a specimen with strict geometric shapes, with unusual, extravagant notes.
Let's just say, small flowerpots for largeplots do not fit, they look ridiculous; and vice versa: if in a small area you want to use large pots, then it should be done in exceptional cases and very carefully.
Landscape fashion also dictates its own rules. Here it is necessary to adhere to the basic: the flower of the flower-pot must not be brighter than the plant itself, planted in it; otherwise the plant will be "lost" against its background. In general, it is better to take monochrome garden flowerpots for flowers: then such plants will be selected and the style will be emphasized. The main and no-lose shades are white, terracotta, brown, gray.

Concrete. The material is relatively cheap, but if itstaste zadekorirovat (for example, use broken porcelain), vases of concrete immediately acquire status. The material is durable, does not burn and is resistant to high humidity and temperature changes. These are its performance characteristics.

If it's a board.
The usual panel technology and classics: you take individual plates and make them together. Since the pot will be street, small it should not be done. Products will come out in a rectangular geometric shape. Making 4 shields, they are connected. It turns out narrowed down or rectangular (it's already up to you) box. You can make a garden pot of even more complex construction, but then you will have to learn the technology of their manufacture.
Often, wood is used only as aframe for the pot, which serves as an old, out-of-order bucket (it is "lined" with wood to make it impossible to see that it is a bucket). The form of the skin also varies: rectangular, hexagonal and even round.
From the timber.
The design of the garden flower pot is created bythe principle of assembling a log cabin. Cutting bars of the right sizes, having made a cut on half-thickness of a bar from both parties, it is possible to collect, as a designer, a pot, using self-tapping screws and nails. The final stage of the work will be grinding and coating the wood with stain. Everything, the pot is ready.

Gabions in your garden - how to make yourself
This is the name of a container of various configurationsof a strong metal mesh, which is filled with stones. The main advantage of this manufacturing method is the lack of cement. On the contrary, even though the main working material is a mesh, it does not spoil the aesthetic side.
The main thing is to give the correct shape to the grid and choose the rock type with which you will fill the frame.
A few tips on the gabion net. Suitable from stainless steel, good bending,rigid, but movable weave with rectangular cells. You can take and zinc, but its disadvantage is that over time it will cover with rust. You do not take Rabbit either, it's tough.
To assemble a gabion, a formwork is prepared from the net, only it is filled with stone, not as usual, with concrete. In order to save money, you can fill the middle of the gabion with rubble.
Ask what kind of stone is suitable for a gabion? The answer is as follows: stones of weakly weathered waterproof rocks, the sizes of which are much larger than the dimensions of the cells. This is suitable for a quarry stone, cobblestone, butt or chip. Between the stones, fertile soil falls asleep.
To achieve even greater effect, the stonesfit as a mosaic (if you trust the manufacture of gabion specialists, they can lay out a stone, even setting a certain pattern). If you lay the stone yourself, then prepare several types of stone. Put them together, they will also look great.
Council: Do you want to make a natural stone glow? Treat it with fluorescent paints. So in the daytime it will be an ordinary pot of natural stone, and in the dark - illumination.
