There are very many inexpensive ways to add great value to your home garden and curb appeal. Here are some benefits of using DIY planter boxes to improve the value of any home.
I am a big fan of making little yet noticeable changes to my home garden. The problem with our society today is that we have been programmed to think that unless you are spending thousands of dollars on home improvement, then you are not really making an impact. That notion couldn’t be further from the truth as evidenced by this fix-and-flip podcast from Rick Otton’s We Buy Houses Radio programme. You can use the smallest things that cost very little money to make tremendous improvements and upgrade your curb appeal. Take planter boxes for example.
Cheap curb appeal
Planter boxes just so happen to be some of the cheapest things to buy or simplest to make (depending on the design you choose). Yet, if positioned properly, they can make your home garden seem like a little slice of paradise. If you have never thought about it before, here are some good reasons why you should strongly consider using DIY planter boxes to improve the value of any home.
They can be used to make a statement
We all yearn to be unique and unmatched. If you are creative enough you can go for the kind of planter designs that make a statement. Not only will they mesmerise your visitor, but they will also great visual satisfaction to you and the family as well. Think of using stately containers or large urns to bring great ambiance, structure and amazing presence to your front porch. You can even plant medium sized trees or topiaries to at grand entryways to create an awesome visual effect.
Use them to bring versatility all year long
The good thing about using planter boxes is that you do not need to have as much space as you would should you have wanted a garden or some such grand plantation. With planter boxes, even your tiny window seal can be transformed into a beautiful orchard that brings great versatility all year long. Also, with planter boxes, you can actually plant any type of flower you want, regardless of the season. All you have to do is move them around appropriately.
They can be for everyone
You may think that because you do not have space nor the skill to make your own planter boxes then they aren’t for you. The truth is, a planter box can be anything you envision it to be. You do not have to go the traditional way of placing them on open surfaces. You can even have vertical planter boxes that adorn any porch that has sturdy vertical space. You can simply buy planter boxes that can be affixed to walls. The good thing is that, not only will these be as unique as it comes but it will also double as wall art.
As for those who think that they just don’t have the craftsmanship to build their own planter boxes, you should know that you can transform anything into a planter box. From bottles, household containers, pails, and even metal tubs. All it takes is a little creativity and you have a planter box. In fact, repurposing household containers are some of the best ways to ensure that your boxes are unique.
