Using planters is a fantastic way to make your patio or deck really stand out. But here’s a tip to make your standout patio stellar: plant a “Thriller, Filler, Spiller.” It’s simply three plants in one container that make a big statement.
When choosing your thriller, filler, spiller plants make sure they require the same amount of water and sunlight, so they work well together.
- Start with the thriller. This is the superstar of the planter. They are usually tall, colorful and last all season long.
- The filler adds mass. The filler should weave through the thriller, providing texture and filling in any bare spaces.
- Last, add the spiller. The spillers will anchor the pot and spill over the side of the container, giving it a softer edge.
