Using ordinary plant stand is boring it has no challenge and looks ordinary. If you want your garden to look fabulous choose classy plant stands for decor to enhance the beauty of your garden. These decorations are so versatile and may be used not just for plants but may also serve other purpose, like as an added charm in one corner of your house or garden. It could also be used to display extra items where shelves are absent.
Starting on the floor, with the taller plants off to the side, it is possible to put more plants on ever taller plant stands placed behind each other to create a virtual bank or wall of greenery and flowers which will not take up too much space in a room. There is a great variety of plant stands available, those that stand by themselves for just one plant, others that come in a set of two or three at various heights. Yet others come in spirals with platforms for several flowerpots, or in the form of a baker`s rack that holds even more potted plants. There are also plant stands that can be folded up for storage, when no longer needed and others that have wheels for easy moving. Depending on the size of the plant, as well as the kind of pot used, one also must consider how sturdy the plant stand is constructed. A huge fern in a clay pot needs a considerably more solid stand than a small geranium in a plastic container.
Once you have made the decision to use plants in the home, displayed on attractive stands and grown in decorative pots, what types of containers can you expect to find in the stores, whether local or online? They tend to come in a variety of materials, the more common being wood, wrought iron and other metals, and wicker. Less common, but very appealing alternative base materials, can be found in porcelain, marble, stone, and acrylic.
Small and delicate plants like a pot of Primulas and huge ferns may look great if placed in a sturdy metal plant stand. However, it is very important to make sure that these metal stands are huge enough to hold any type of plant containers or planters to protect it from sudden movements and unwanted damages over time. Such type of stands can be availed from a variety of metals such as brass and cast iron. However, they can be subjected to corrosion or rusting. To make it last longer to use, you need to apply a metal sealant or a metal spray paint to ensure protection and durability.
The good thing about wrought iron is the fact that it is easily molded despite being very sturdy. This means that there are an unlimited number of designs for any ironwork made out of wrought iron. It`s best that you choose a design that emphasizes the beauty of the plant that`s going to be sitting on it. For instance, if you have a plant with long leaves, then you may opt for a really thin design to make your plant look like it`s floating or being help up by its leaves. At any rate, once you have the design you want, it`s time to accentuate the place where you`re going to put the ironwork.
