Plant large planters: ideas for plant combination

Large Planter Combinations-Heuchera-Lobelia-Monet-hange-verbena-dwarf-whitethorn


Decorative planters are an asset to any home and balcony. Large planters but are more suitable for large areas such as a terrace in the garden and can beautify bald corners quickly. You can also as privacy serve or hide garbage cans. However, the right planting is particularly important so that the large planters can be functional and fascinating at the same time. Read our tips and tricks for successful plant combinations and look at the beautiful examples!

Plant large planters – The trick

Large Planter Plant Ornamental Grass Carex Ice Dance Heuchera Plum Pudding Lysimachia nummularia Pennywort

For the planting of large planters, the choice of suitable plants is particularly important. Not only do you have to have the same standards of light, air and water, you also have to look good together. Here are several options available:

– Same plant species, different colors
– Same color, different plants
– Variations on a common theme such as Mediterranean etc.

A particularly successful trick when combining the plants in large planters is the concept “Thriller, Filler, Spiller”. This means a plant as a highlight, a gap filler and one that hangs over the edge. For the “thriller” you can use a rather tall plant like Canna Lilies, New Zealands Flax or Lampentregrass or fountain grass choose. Take a look at the examples below and you’ll get a better idea of ​​the concept.

Plant large planters – examples of successful combinations

Large Planter - Plant New Zealand Flax Phormium Pennywort

In the large planter: Phormium, pennywort, Aurea ‘, strawberry plant, white dahlias and begonias, yellow capsule.

In the medium sized planter: light yellow capsule in the middle, a yellow Calibrachoa “Million bells” and a small fat leaf.

beautiful color and optical height

wood trough-garden-plant-Euphorbia Ascot Rainbow chrysanthemums

In the middle – Perl millet (Pennisetum glaucum). The evergreen perennial Euphorbia Ascot Rainbow, Sombrero hat, rust chrysanthemums and licorice straw flowers complete the arrangement.

Contrast between purple and yellow

Acer circinatum-Little-Gem-Heuchera Zwergkonifer-Libertia-ixioides-Vinca maculata


A nice arrangement for large planters is also this. It consists of a dwarf maple, the purple leaves with its purple leaves, a dwarf conifer, Libertia ixioides Goldfinger and the large-leaved evergreen “Maculata”. As you can see, different levels were created in the tub with the plants. The tallest plants are at the very back, while the lower ones are planted before.

Canna lilies and phormium in the center of the planters

pflankuebel-gross-planting-combination-phormium-sweet potato-vine-canna lily-


The Canna is a sun-loving plant that is perfect for locations in the sun. Even with grasses you can create beautiful textures and put combinations together. You can not only plant very tall pots with plants at different heights, as just explained. Use the height of the planters and choose species that fall down to decorate the outside of the tub.

Canna lilies as a highlight

Large Planters - plant-trick-arrangement-high

Here you can see again a beautiful use of the Canna. As it grows very high, it can either form the background of the arrangement or be chosen as the center, planting some lower flowers around it. For the example above, white-flowering specimens were chosen, including petunia, ornamental grasses and hanging plants. The large planter is so completely designed.

Ivy, stinging nettle and ferns

pflanzkuebel-plant-ideas-ivy-colored nettle-ferns

Since ivy grows beautifully lush, you can use it as a ground cover or gap filler in your planter. Ferns in the same color provide texture, while plants with colored leaves can add some accents. Plantain like here or flowering begonias are wonderfully suitable and create a pleasant mood.

beautiful plant combination for every terrace

Summer fountain grass-helichrysum-calibrachoa cross-anda-alternanthera-spargelfarn

In this composition for the summer, the lamprey grass was combined with Helichrysum, Calibrachoa crossanda, Alternanthera and asparagus fern. A rectangular bucket was used in which the plants were alternately planted, with the grass forming the middle and background. Play with the colors as you shape your arrangements.

combine dark and light shades

Large Planters plant-combine-geranium-lamp shed

Light and dark colors have been successfully combined in this plant arrangement. Again, you can find the lamprey grass, which stands out in the middle of the other, densely grown plants. Even geraniums can be found and enjoy not only with colorful leaves, but also with attractive flowers throughout the season.

over the edge of the planter hanging plant varieties

large-pflanzkuebel-plant-high-low-hangepflanzen

Hanging plants can be wonderfully used on house facades and used as decoration. If you have a planter in front of each window, you can easily consider such plant species. For example, choose two types in different leaf colors and combine with flowering specimens that grow upwards for the background.

Conifer in bucket

Large planter-plant-grasshopper-grass-dwarf pine

Even conifers can be used for large planters. Arrangements do not always necessarily consist of many plant species. Depending on the size of the plant, as here, three may suffice. You can see the dwarf pine in the background and in front Heuchera and ornamental grass. Of course, these species can also be replaced by others.

And if you do not just want to make a decorative benefit out of the bucket arrangements, you can still rely on herb plants. These can be combined with salads or other vegetables and not only give you a pretty eye-catcher, but you can also look forward to the harvest soon and enjoy your products from your own garden. Again, you can deliberately choose plants with colored leaves to make the bucket arrangement even more interesting.

large-pflanzkuebel-plant-colorful nettle-gap filler

Buntnesses are available in a variety of color options. Since it is only natural to combine them with each other. Create a luscious composition or plant only two to three specimens and fill in the gaps with any blooming or green plant species as done in this example. There are also ground cover for this purpose.

Design a garden in a square – structure small and large outdoor areas

garden in the square turf terrace seating area hedge plant


Are you looking for the perfect way to create a structured and neat looking garden? Then the square shape and also its three-dimensional variant, namely the cube, is perfectly suitable as a basis. A garden with geometric shapes designed for beds, terraces and other areas, looks tidier and quieter. This is not only a good idea for larger gardens, but also proves to be very useful for small ones. For a square garden design you have two options to choose from: either you already have a square garden and carry this geometric shape for all the individual elements or your garden has a different shape, but you want to divide into several squares. We have put together a few tips and ideas for both design options to help you shape your garden in a square.

Learn how to use the geometry in your outdoor area and how to best combine the equilateral areas to create an individual and unique garden area that will not only make you proud, but will keep you happy for many years to come. Planning is the alpha and omega! What has to be considered and how quickly can create the perfect classification, we have summarized in our article. Be inspired by the beautiful gardens in our gallery and collect ideas that you can implement yourself!

Garden Square – The classic cottage garden

garden in square gardening-beet-plant-stone-plate-privacy-fence

The so-called farmer garden means nothing more than to divide the property with a cross, whereby the cross is formed by garden paths and four or even more squares for beds, lawns and other garden elements arise. One of these elements can also be the terrace, as well as a pool. The beds can then be framed with different bed borders. Especially hedge plants that keep you low beautify your outdoor area and make it look more natural. With the cottage garden you can also wonderfully transform an irregular shaped plot into a wonder of geometry.

garden-square-hang long-beetgestaltung-ideas-pergola-decorative gravel

If you play with the size of the various square elements, the shape of the garden will be particularly interesting. They do not necessarily have to be the same size. Combine, for example, a smaller vegetable patch with a large flowerbed or a large pool. Above all, the terrace with seating and dining area often requires more space, while some other areas are not desired too large. The interplay of small and large squares creates a greater tension in your outdoor area.

It is also recommended to highlight the center of the garden. This accent can consist of a fountain in square shape or a square, half-height column on which you place a planter. But you might also want a seat in the middle of the garden? Then the center is perfect for it. A nice variation for the garden in the square is also a separate flowerbed, which you can decorate with groundcover and tall plants, evergreen specimens or colorful flowers and also with a tree for the middle.

garden-square-English-garden-wild-planting-square-fountain


You can also opt for a pond. This does not necessarily have to have a natural, irregular shape to represent a beautiful decorative element. Even geometric shapes, in our case the square, are wonderfully suitable. If you have no room for a square pond in the middle of the garden, you are welcome to decorate the edge of the property with it. Gladly such water elements are also built directly to the terrace. All this can be considered in the planning.

garden in square raised-gravel-tree-minimalist-wood-floor-patio-lawn


Even with the heights you can play. This is especially useful if you have a hillside plot. But even a flat garden surface can be divided into different heights. And again, you make your garden square. The slope is best used for raised beds. It does not matter whether you wall the retaining walls or choose the modern variant with gabions.

garden-square-stone-design-terrace-ornamental grasses-whirlpool

Build a raised terrace for the garden in the square, which is reached by means of steps in the same form. Especially for pool areas or relaxation oases with whirlpool, such design options are very popular. If both steps and patio are square shaped, you can either use square tiles of any material or make a break in the structure as a floor covering and, for example, use rectangular panels or wooden boards.

garden-square-backyard-make-hearth-gartengestaltung-square

And finally, you should also keep this form in the furniture and decorations. This refers to things like flower pots or planters, which are usually round. Instead, choose square shapes to complement your angular garden design. The same applies to elements such as stools in the seating areas, for landscaping the garden paths (use square stones, tiles or slabs). And also some of the plants can be cut like cubes and so the garden design can be adjusted. Choose appropriate Plants for the shape cut and set accents here and there in the flower beds.

garden-square-garden-square-inspirations-tips-hedges-grasses-modern-simple, geometric

You will receive a particularly easy-care garden in this way. Instead of lawns in which you integrate beds, use ornamental gravel. To keep the beds free of pebbles, you can use bedding to separate them. But the square beds are especially good if they are designed slightly higher than the ground. Create an interesting structure by using the principle of the farmer garden and separating the small plant beds by paths.

Garden with intersecting squares

garden-square-diagonal-areas-terrace-pond-project

Do you find the sequence of squares typical of the classic cottage garden too boring? Then choose a different pattern! Design beds, water features, and the terrace so that they overlap. This relaxes the look and is perfect for creating a modern garden. Very interesting looks a terrace whose corner protrudes into a pool of water. So use also diagonal lines for the division of the individual garden areas.

Diagonals are not only interesting, but also make each plot visually wider and wider. The individual areas are separated visually from each other by choosing different floor coverings. The result is, for example, a paved terrace and a lawn, a pool area and the beds with earth, mulch or gravel. But the garden paths, tree and shrub rows or the bedding borders can also be made diagonal to cut them off.

Make sure that you do not create too narrow points in this garden design. These are especially fast if you have an irregular garden shape. If these are unavoidable, hide them with decorative elements such as tubs or cover them by planting larger plants and hiding the tips in this way.

Combine squares and other geometric shapes

garden-square-modern-design-sitting area-wood-panels-palms-hearth-round

Likewise, use the angular, equilateral shapes as the main, but not only the sole form for your garden design. Because this shape can also be combined with some other geometric shapes for a garden in the square. So in a square sitting area, a round hearth can be chosen to create a contrast. In the same way, hedge plants can also be cut as a ball instead of a cube.

garden-square-shape-geometric-plan-modern-white-gravel-small-beete

Or you frame the square terrace with rounded beds and create contrast forms in this way. This structuring variant can also be used with a pond. If you would like to have this close to the seating area, not only a square, but also an irregular or a round circular shape is suitable for this element.

If you do not want an obvious structural break, just use smaller garden elements and decorations to combine all the squares in the garden. The parasol or dining table, for example, can be easily chosen in a round shape or you set up round flower pots and planters or fire pits.

garden-square-flowers-tidy-garden design-build-hedges

But if you want, divide the entire garden into the respective areas and use a different geometric shape for each one. Thus, the terrace may also be round or rectangular, the beds oblong and, for example, the lawn in the garden squared. It is best to sketch several variants on a sheet of paper or cut out individual areas in the desired shape and put them together in different ways like a puzzle. So you can try out several ideas, replace parts, replace and quickly find the right variant.

Tips for square beds in the garden

garden-square-beet-idea-checkered-blue-flowers-evergreen-bodendecker

A square garden can be made even more interesting if you divide the already square beds into smaller squares. Combine, for example, colorful flowers in two colors or green and flowering plants to create a checkerboard pattern. If annual flowers are used for the flowers, you can also change them every year. Once again, if you do not have much time to invest in gardening and gardening, you can also use easy-care ground cover or evergreen plant species.

The squares square trick is also used to grow vegetables. The square bedding is divided into 9 smaller squares, into which up to four plants are sown or planted depending on the type of vegetables and the space you need to grow (for this, of course, the small square is quartered again). This space-saving variant is ideal for small gardens where the vegetable garden is indispensable.

garden-square-little-house-climber-ornamental grasses-plant-face protection

If you prefer to do without large beds in need of care, you can also fill free areas with such interesting design options. Create a square garden simply with a design reminiscent of grids. From square panels of any size, you can create a solid surface, whereby you can not only fill the joints with decorative gravel like here, but also plant them with lawn or ground cover. This makes the area visually interesting, but it is much easier to care for than flowerbeds.

Integrate square water elements

Water creates a special atmosphere in every garden style. If these elements are angular, the exterior gets a modern accent that makes it look neater. With a large garden area even several wells or ponds can be combined, as was done in the example above. The long form of the garden was divided into three lawned squares, each of which has a well. Water elements located in the middle of the lawn can protect you when mowing blades of grass as you create a strip of stone, gravel or other elements between the lawn and the fountain, which also take on the angular shape of the lawn and fountain. The same is true for pools.

garden-square-modern-pool-deco-little-house-plan

Here’s an interesting way to combine multiple squares in the same element. In this case, it is a whirlpool, which has been equipped with two small waterfalls at different heights. It is important that you also match garden elements that entertain you with your garden design. Even tesserae can help. Thus, this pool uses the geometric shape several times in different ways.

If you still believe that geometric garden shapes automatically create a simple, minimalist style, here’s proof that it does not necessarily have to be that way. Especially a small garden in the square can look tropical or Asian with some exotic-looking plants, square ponds and straight garden paths. With the help of different levels, which you can create with the help of raised beds at different heights, it is all the easier to imitate a lush planting as in the rainforest. Despite the confusion that characterizes the garden at first glance due to the diverse planting, the geometric elements in particular provide the necessary structure.

big windows new construction energy use insulation


Large windows in the facade and skylights in the attic are almost standard modern houses , No one wants to live in dark rooms anymore and that is understandable for many reasons. Daylight has a direct influence on the physical and mental health of people. It not only brightens the mood, but also increases the well-being and performance. The larger the windows, the more open, brighter and more comfortable the room looks. We’ll tell you today what other advantages big windows bring with them and what else should be considered when designing them.

Large windows bring with it a lot of advantages

Modern homes such as zero energy and passive houses not only convince visually, but also in terms of energy efficiency. Excellent thermal insulation of the house walls and windows underlines this trend and ensures optimum energy utilization. In the long term, this will bring considerable savings and protect the environment. When planning modern passive houses Cardinal directions the window arrangement firm, so that the interiors can make optimal use of the sunlight and the incidence of light. In the north, large windows are hardly worthwhile, but in the south you can use the free solar energy as additional heat source. Technically, the installation of a window front is also possible later in each house. If you want to replace an existing wall with large insulating windows, you must apply for a building permit.

Insulate large windows

large-window-new building-blinds-white-xxl-dining area

For large windows, the use of triple glazing or thermal glazing is recommended. Your advantages: low heat loss and great savings potential. These heat protection windows are manufactured with a triple glazing and also contain noble gas fillings in the interstices. When buying a window, the U-value (heat transfer coefficient) must be observed. The U value indicates how much heat is released from the interior of the room through the window to the outside. The smaller the U, the better the insulating effect of the glazing. In contrast to old windows, new energy saving windows have a much better U-value between 0.6 – 1.5 W / (m²K). When choosing a new window glazing, it is important to inform yourself about the g-value. The g-value ranges from 0 to 1.0 and indicates the transmittance of the glazing for solar energy. The ideal window therefore has a high g-value and the lowest possible.

Old and leaky windows in the old building give off a lot of heating energy to the environment and increase the heating costs, so you should consider possible Dämmmaßnachmen. Several alternatives for replacing old, single-glazed windows are available here. The compression band, for example, is well-suited for sealing the window frames, as it expands after mounting from 2 to 10 mm and at least eliminates airborne phenomena. The comfort depends mainly on the temperature of the glass. To save energy and feel more comfortable near the windows, the windows should be well insulated. Cold protection foils can be applied to the window from the inside and reflect the heat back into the room, thus providing effective protection against cold.

Shading for large windows

A large window front should let light and heat into the room, but also offer the possibility of darkening and privacy. What is desired in winter, however, can quickly be too much in summer. If you are not sure about the selection, you are welcome to seek advice from the dealer. However, here are some ideas for large windows.

Not only small windows can be equipped with roller blinds. Even very large window fronts of up to 4.5 m in width and 4 m in height can be covered with a maxi-blind. They are a charming alternative to the classic curtain and can also be a decorative eye-catcher with photo printing. A practical solution would also be blinds that are made to measure and can be perfectly adapted to any classic or modern window front. Even structural requirements such as roof pitches and bay windows pose no problem.

Vertical blinds, still called slat curtains, are usually the first choice when furnishing office space, but they are now also moving into the private rooms. Many kitchens and living rooms in modern homes, for example, offer plenty of natural light through large windows and direct access to the terrace or balcony. Their flexibility makes it possible to quickly raise slatted blinds to allow access to the outside. The light and the view to the outside can also be flexibly regulated.

Sliding curtains are a great design option, especially with wide window fronts. Panel curtains succeed in perfectly combining functional privacy and sun protection with creative interior design. Sliding curtains are hung on trolleys in multi-layer curtain rails and provide glare protection exactly where it is needed. In the rail system, up to five tracks can be run in succession. This results in great variations and combination options: transparent and opaque materials, monochrome and patterned fabric panels as well as entire window pictures with an individual motif. There are no limits for your creativity!
