A popular feature in many patios and backyards is, of course, a delightful container garden. Especially true in contemporary and urban set-ups, container gardens are the ideal way to add a unique touch to your patio and host plants that aren’t always keen to the soil conditions around your home. Here are a few of our favorite container gardens, all in beautiful patios that know how to work them.
