I was so happy to create these shady and sunny container gardens for a repeat client in Chicago yesterday. (You can see what we did last year here and here.) The variety of color, foliage and blooms was so much fun to work with. Whenever I work on container gardens, I feel like an artist creating my masterpiece through the arrangement of the flowers and foliage. It’s great therapy too. 😉
This client has a shady area on her back deck and a sunny area near her front windows, so we used a variety of plants – some that grow well in the shade and some that thrive in sunny conditions. Whatever your light conditions are, there are plenty of beautiful (and colorful) options. Take a look at the pictures and let me know what you think!
Pops of color even in the shade

The view from outside – at times, a little scary hanging out that window, but we managed! 🙂
