Backyard Gardening is Made Easy with Fabric Pots
While there are some people who have very little space in which to build a garden – a small balcony, or even just a sunny windowsill – others have large outdoor areas to contend with. Backyard gardening requires constant maintenance and lots of attention, which can be a real challenge for even the most experienced of gardeners. So, how can a set of fabric pots help to make things just that little bit easier? Well…
Mobility and Adaptability
One real snag about taking care of a large backyard garden is that you can’t move things around that easily. You can’t just pick up the lawn one day and move it slightly to the left, or lift up the flower beds and shift them to the end of the garden. The landscape and organization of your backyard garden are pretty much set in stone, unless you make a deliberate decision to change it. Those kind of decisions can be time-consuming and costly.
However, if you’ve got a few plants or even a couple of small trees (find tree pots here) in a collection of fabric pots, then you can simply pick them up and move them from one place to another as many times as you like. If you need to clean the patio, move your fabric pots aside and put them back when you’re done. If you want to shift the collection of rose trees to another spot, then do it. (Remember, not all fabric pots come with easy-to-use handles, but the Spring Pot collection does, making it even easier to make changes to your garden design on a whim).
And, don’t forget, fabric pots can be adapted for use in any kind of outdoor space. Your garden might have a long, green lawn, or a series of small patios, some decking or an array of rich, deep flower beds. Whatever the design, you can invest in a collection of fabric pots to match the needs of your garden without any issues.
It can be difficult for gardeners to contend with the changing of the seasons in outdoor spaces. Lots of rain one month, too much sun the next. But when your backyard garden is filled with fabric pots, you can respond to the changing climate with ease and efficiency.
In the winter, you might want to have your fabric pots lined up against the wall of the house, sheltered from the wind and the rain. In the summer, you can position them so that they soak up the sun’s rays in the morning and bask in the cool shelter of the shade in the afternoon. Dealing with the changing weather and the challenges that the changing of the seasons brings is far easier when you can just move your plants around.
The other real advantage about backyard gardening with fabric pots is that it’s easier to control the water cycle and plant roots are happier, thanks to the natural air pruning that occurs. With happier roots and more control over irrigation, plants begin to offer bigger yields and that makes backyard gardening so much more satisfying. It’s like having the control of an indoor gardening environment, while working in the beauty of the outdoors.
So, how do you think you might start incorporating some fabric pots in your backyard garden?
