Do you wish you had a big beautiful garden but can only have one in your dreams since you live in an apartment or rent a small space where planting a garden is simply not an option? You need not settle for only dreaming of having gorgeous flowers and fresh vegetables and herbs, you simply need to rethink your idea of what a garden is, or rather what you have to plant it in. Turns out, containers are a great way to garden, and no large patch of dirt or lawn is required. Container gardening is great, actually, because you can control soil quality and the amount of water required much more easily and you can assure proper drainage for those precious plants, too. If you live in a freeze prone area, you can relocate your plants during a freeze, too. When I started looking into DIY container gardens and planters, I realized all of this, and I am not sure I will ever go back to traditional gardening again. Containers can be really pretty, too.
