Nothing brings an outdoor deck design to life better than plant life. Colorful flowers, lush vegetables, heck even weeds can look great on an outdoor deck. Plants bring a sense of nature to your home and add interest to any deck. Instead of just planting the same boring flowers in the same tired pots as last year, let’s spice summer 2016 up a bit.
It’s a little-known fact that the Minnesota deck builders at UglyDeck.com have green thumbs as well. Our Minneapolis decking experts take pride in their ability to not only build and design beautiful maintenance free decking, but decking them out with stunning plant life and garden fixtures.
Incorporate beautiful plants into your deck’s design with these easy tips from our deck builders:
Small Deck? Go Up! If your deck design is lacking in square footage, opt for container grown trees and shrubs or vining plants on a trellis to incorporate larger plants without taking up a lot of space.
Start a Deck Garden Bring the family vegetable garden onto your deck! Built-in garden boxes are easy to construct and look great. On the sunny side of your outdoor deck, build out several containers to start your garden!
Vary Pot Type An easy way to create interest is to use different types of flowerpots. Choose colors that contrast well with your decking material: the lighter the deck stain, the darker the flowerpots.
Know Your Limits Understand your level of commitment when purchasing flowers and plants. If you’re unable to water and care for them every day, consider succulents and plants with less maintenance requirements.
