Dress Up Your Patio with Potted Plants

Potted plants are the secret to an inviting, vibrant patio. They can fill empty corners, act as natural privacy screens, and breathe life into your party space. Consider brightly flowering plants like geraniums or petunias for a pop of color. For a more dramatic effect, add some tall plants like ferns or even small potted trees. Succulents in decorative pots can also be a great low-maintenance choice and do well in the Nashville summer heat. Adding American flags to those pots is an easy and quick way to accent vibrant colors.
