Not the same ole, same ole

GALA Grand Award
Gibbs Landscape Company

This homeowner stated that she was exhausted of seeing the same ole, same ole in her container garden and that she wanted something more than the ordinary fern in the center and flowers surrounding it.  She was looking for containers that were innovative, exciting and creative.

The blue of the scaevola in this container is helping create a repetition of the color since it is so pronounced in the hydrangeas and in the cushions on her lawn furniture.

Display of the three containers with complimentary plant material and appropriate scale of plant material for the containers.

One of the best ways to create interest is to juxtapose the spikey cordyline Red Sensation with the dainty Hip Hop euphorbia and incorporate the bold foliage of the Red Dragon Wing begonia. The flowers of the plant material - orange of the Profusion zinnias, rose of the Graffiti pentas, yellow of the New Gold lantana and white of the Aaron zaladium - amplifies the significance of the container garden.

The orange zinnia and Red Dragon Wing begonias and the New Gold lantana show a bright display of color that lights the pots on fire.

Overall view of the containers working together in harmony with the rest of the landscape.

Not only was plant material interest kept in mind while designing these containers, but the plant material was positioned so the homeowner could enjoy flowers from her vantage point. Since she rarely viewed the back portion of the container, we strategically placed the height in the back of the container rather than placing it in the traditional center of the pot. The layering effect worked perfectly, allowing the client to get complete enjoyment of her seasonal color containers.
