Impossible to have a beautiful terrace without beautiful planters
To have beautiful plants, you have to take care of them. In a recent publication, we talked aboutsucculent plants and their maintenance. Some people believe that greasy plants can survive everything. They are not wrong, but that does not mean that we should not care for them, water them and provide them with enough indirect light. Any plant needs maintenance. Any plant needs a suitable container. Gardeners advise to favor ceramic or terracotta pots and to avoid glass containers.
Apart from the practical aspect of the pots, one should not neglect the aesthetic side. Choose pots that will provide a pleasant living environment for your plants and will beautify your exterior.
Modern terraces with swimming pool or basin: some useful tips
You have a terrace with swimming pool? Great! You are lucky owner and certainly very happy with a water basin. Small or large, it is not very important. Do you know that hearing the flowing water or watching the moving water calm the mind? In a Japanese garden Zen, one always puts a basin of water – small pool, fountain, stream.
If you enjoy a swimming pool, you have to think about the surface of your surroundings. We have already devoted some publications to this theme . Here again, natural and resistant materials are replaced. Concrete is also permitted. Some people match the siding of the pool enclosure with that of their terrace. This choice is very common when it allows to create a harmonious whole. On the other hand, if you want to accentuate your swimming pool, a coating in contrast to that of your terrace is conceivable. Marrying concrete and wood is usually one of the preferred combinations of pool owners.
Comfort and functionality are paramount to create a pleasant exterior.
