If you have a container garden, the chances are that it may be a collection of plants than a garden. But if you arrange and organize your container garden rightly, you can create an interesting garden like look and relaxing space in your home.
Container Garden Design Tips1.

When designing a container garden, plant a beautiful shrub or tree in a large unusual or artistic container and place it in a prominent spot in the container garden as a focal point. Plant a low growing plant on its base to create a more alluring effect or leave it alone for dramatic appeal.
2.

Group plants according to their height to create a garden like surrounding effect. To do this, place tall plants and trees in the back and short and low growing plants in front.
3.

Vary plant height with plant stands, or put pots and empty buckets upside down to use as makeshift bases. Create more interest by increasing the number of pots. Place large and heavy pots directly on the ground.
4.

Use pedestal pots or pedestal stands to draw attention to the interesting foliage plants or delicate flowers that might otherwise be overlooked.
5.

Disguise ugly pots and plant stands by placing containers in front of them. This will also create the illusion that the plants are larger than they actually are.
6.

Keep healthy and disease free plants towards the front to create an effect of lush green and colorful container garden.
7.

Plant several plant in a large container instead of planting in many small containers. This will make your container garden more organized and uncluttered. However, don’t buy all the pots of the same size.
8.

Plant hedging and tall plants like bamboo and conifers or grasses in the sides of the container garden to hide view from neighbors. This way you’ll be able to create a more private space and your container garden will look bigger too.
9.

Mix up sculptural plants with plants that have different shapes of leaves to draw attention.
10.

Enhance and beautify the look of pots by matching them with contrasting flowers and foliage plants.
11.

Use spiller, filler, and thriller technique to make beautiful combinations.
