Custom Container Arrangements

Nothing looks as warm and inviting as beautiful plants spread around a patio, deck, home, pathway, yard, balcony, garden. Think about the last gathering you went to: Did you walk into a warm and inviting atmosphere? Was lively, vibrant, lush, tropical, elegant?

Our custom container arrangements are perfect for making social gatherings, indoors and out, warm and inviting. We also welcome you to work with one of our Garden Design Experts to create your own arrangements (Our Garden Design Experts can help you select plants with similar watering needs, the right sized container, and the best soil, key when it comes to container planting.). Or, wander the Garden Genter to see what amazing custom arrangements we’ve already made!

Because succulents all have basically the same watering needs they are great plants for grouping and planting in containers. Because they are so diverse in height, color, texture and shape, you can have lots of fun experimenting and getting creative with what you plant.

(Below) Containers can also spark the imagination, with their color, texture, and design.


(Below) Custom arrangements in containers can be positioned in the garden with some height. Place them on a pedestal to achieve a dramatic look. Having some elevated focal points adds interest for the eye and leads the eye to specific sights. Container arrangements can go on tabletops, shelves–use your creativity to find places you’d like place a container, then find the right-sized container and plants at the Marina del Rey garden center.
