Vertical gardens? What the bajingle is one of the those? Some clever sole invented a racking system that enables you to put lots of tessellating plant pots next to each other to give the impression of a full wall of vegetation. That’s the quick answer anyway but since then the art has evolved and there are other solution. The point is though that it gives designers and owners and opportunity to add a new dimension and use plants that would otherwise have been ignored.

Interior landscaping is something that many of us will never have to worry about but for large buildings like hotels, shopping centres and corporate head quarters they often have large foyers or atrium’s that can feel a bit empty. Sure there is something impressive about a large emtpy space but there is something welcoming about filling that space with some life. That is where interior landscapes come in and as you will see they can span from inbuilt ponds to just nicely scattered flower pots.

A feature planter is a flower pots, usually large in size, that is set in a position that makes it a focal point in the garden or interior. There are many different planters out there and it is often not only the design of the pot but also the design of the surroundings that make the concept work.

We all know what shape comes to mind when we say flower pot, sadly not my own concrete planters, but the iconic tapered design. This is a pot that is seen the world over from cheap high street retailers to designer boutiques, so why is it so globally successful?

The use of rectangular planters can be from simply holding plants to actually dividing space.┬áThe shape of these planters mean that they lend themselves to being used as space dividers either indoors or outdoors. They obviously aren’t sound proof so if it’s just a segregation of zones you are after then this could work well.
