You Don’t Need A Green Thumb to Garden

You’ve been scoping the competition and you’ve see the photographs — pretty-as-a-picture planting beds, lovely landscaping, fountains and flowers. It sure is easy on the eyes, but you suspect easy stops there. Maybe gardening just isn’t your thing or you don’t have the time or hiring a landscaper isn’t in your budet…or all of the above.

You’ve Got POTential!

Well, here’s a little secret: It is possible, practical, and affordable to add a garden to your lara taylor real estate charlotte ncproperty without breaking ground — or your budget. The secret ingredient — POTS!

Pots — or other containers, like decorative buckets and wooden boxes and hanging baskets — provide a cost-effective, EASY alternative to traditional gardening. You can buy ready-made containers from home and garden centers
or you can make your own.

Thinking INSIDE The Box

Need a little inspiration?  Here’s a link to a container garden photo gallery ( where you can see pint-sized potted paradises filled with everything from radishes to roses.

Container gardens are limited by nothing but your imagination. Greenery, flowers, herbs, even vegetables will thrive in a wide variety of receptacles and settings. Best of all, if your plans aren’t liking the light in one spot, you don’t have to dig them and up and replant them, you just have to give them a lift to a sunnier or shadier spot.

POT-able, Portable

So, when you’re thinking big about beautifying your yard, entryway, or deck, don’t forget to think small. Lilliputian lilies, tiny tomatoes, half-pint herbs, a smidgen of strawberries — they’re small but mighty allies to a home seller, and best of all, once your home scores a sold sign, you can even take them with you.
