Lowe’s has some amazing planters to choose from! I stayed with some neutral greys to let the pretty flowers shine. I wanted my planters to look a little wild, so I planted a mix of delicate flowers and trailing greens (lambs ear is easily one of my favourites). I also planted this gorgeous tropical plant in the back. She's so leafy and green, it creates a jungle vibe here which I love! It's an indoor plant usually, but with the summer temperatures where I live, she will do just fine out here for now.
Tip: Group the planter pots in threes to give a little more of a statement in a small space.
I also gave the porch a good pressure wash to clear the wood from all the winter grime and mud (this really freshened up the wood and made it shine), then I layered two rugs; I used a larger runner style rug underneath to really ground the space and freshened up with a new front door mat – cute, right?
