Fun Garden Containers for Walls

100_5948What if you’ve got…GASP!…a bare wall?  Easy!  Just think of it as a xeriscape canvas on which to “paint” a desert scene.  Study the natural light of the sun as it moves across the sky and see how it plays on your wall throughout the day.  Consider using some bold colors, lines, and textures to soften a stark wall and bring it to life.

Take these terra cotta planters at the Hotel Plaza Real in Santa Fe, for example.   Not only do they show off these stunning red blooms, they cast interesting shadows as the sun crosses overhead.  The result?  A different “painting” depending on where you’re standing.  Add a bistro set and you’ve got a cozy place to rest and relax.
