Spilled flower pots are a whimsical and humorous trend in garden design. This is a simple concept that can be used in any backyard garden and just takes a little thought and creativity. Many of these designs give the impression that the “burial” has just happened. In some of these arrangements, the flowers go straight into the lawn, while others are enclosed by rocks or cobblestones. The arrangements where the flowers blend into the lawn or fall onto mulch appear more spontaneous than those that flow into an enclosed area.
Some of these designs are very ambitious, with built-in ramps that help the flowers fall to the ground. These give the design a sense of dynamic movement. One design in particular brings a smile to everyone’s face: bright orange flowers flowing from a tube of paint. In this way, the gardener can “paint” his designs into reality.
You can use any type of annual or perennial for this fun garden design. Bring variety to your garden by varying the type of planters. Take a little time to turn your expectations on their head and they will lead you to a fun, charming spilled planter design for your own backyard garden.
