Potted trees offer convenient ways to raise your curbside appeal, although displaying them can be a bit tricky if you’re not quite sure what to do. Luckily, basic design principles can help you make your potted trees work in your favor. From adding foliage to changing out your planters, your potted trees can make your garden or entryway look warmer and more welcoming. Here’s a how-to on effectively displaying your potted trees without overdoing it.
Keep it symmetrical
For a seamless display, keep things balanced. Using a potted tree on either side of your entryway emphasizes your doorway and gives your home a balanced look. For the ultimate symmetrical look, make sure your potted trees have the same height and width.
When using decorated trees such as the Lewis Pine, having another decorated tree in the display balances things out.
Add visual height
It’s also fun to add levels to your display by putting tall potted trees in the back with smaller trees in front. Doing this gives your entryway visual texture and makes it look more welcoming.
Bring smaller plants to the mix
Put additional foliage at the bottom of your potted tree to add color and variety. Flowers give the foliage color, while moss brings a dense appeal to the display.
Change out your planter
Dress up your planter to complement the season — for instance, evergreens with a plaid or red bow for the Christmas season or baskets for spring. Putting your potted trees inside wooden crates is a perfect way to spruce up your planters for summer.
With these easy and elegant ideas, your potted trees will be the highlight of your entryway. For more tips on decorating your home, check out our post on how to decorate the porch for summer.
