Outdoor vases, the trends of the moment
Planters and pots represent the only possibility of cultivating for those who only have a balcony or terrace; they are an interesting and versatile element even in the garden. First of all they give us the opportunity to grow sensitive plants that would not adapt to outdoor life in the colder months of the year. They are also a good choice if we want our spaces to be attractive even in December and August, with frost or extreme heat. For the focal points the ideal is to buy three or four different pots to be filled with scalar flowering plants. We will only have to alternate them during the year.
To obtain a good overall result, it is essential that the style of our spaces, containers and plants is harmonious. On the market now they are found in every shape, size and material. It is up to us to decide which trends to follow.
The outdoor spaces must be in close relationship with the buildings that surround them. Especially in cities, gardens and balconies have "minimal" tendencies: plants are pruned in a formal way and those with a more essential appearance are preferred (such as ornamental grasses). To give charm and add points of interest to these environments just rely on trendy designers: plastic, steel, resin, concrete are the rising trend at this moment.
Most of the time they are in neutral colors such as white, beige, wenge, the many shades of gray. However, there is no shortage of creations in bright colors, to be used in harmony or in contrast with the surrounding landscape and cultivated plants. The forms are linear and essential. It is not uncommon for vases to become elements that are an end in themselves or even used as a source of light.
