Free Summer Planting Plan

Summer Annuals Free Planting Plan

It’s that time of year when it feels really good to get your hands dirty planting a container of beautiful summer annuals. (Summer officially starts today!)

Browsing through a garden center and walking among all the annuals can be inspiring, but it can also be a bit overwhelming. So, that’s why Topiarius is providing you with a free planting plan! You can enjoy the beauty AND know exactly what you need to buy.

This plan is for a 4′ x 16″ planter, but the quantities can be modified to fit another size container. We L-O-V-E our plantings to be lush instantaneously so we make sure to have enough plant material on-hand. Additionally, these plants do best in part sun/part shade.

A few tips for planting: 

  • Make sure your container has drainage holes.
  • Use potting soil (not Chicago clay soil).
  • Compact the soil a bit before and while planting so that after a few days the roots aren’t exposed as the soil has settled. 
  • Remember to water immediately after planting then regularly.
  • For more information about these annuals visit Missouri Botanic Garden’s Plant Finder – it’s one of our favorite resources.

If you need more inspiration, you can see our other designs on our Pinterest board. 

And, if you love the idea of a summer annual planting, but have no time nor interest in doing the planting . . . give us a ring. We’re happy and eager to help.

Finding Luxury IS this easy!

Outdoor Furniture Rooftop

Tired of only seeing what Restoration Hardware, CB2, and Wayfair have for outdoor furniture? Want something that is more unique and speaks to your style?

Luckily enough . . . you’ve got us! We can help you find all the luxury outdoor furniture companies that don’t float to the top of your Google search.

What you need to know is luxury brands sell in 3 different ways

You can

    1. buy directly from companies and purchase pieces at MSRP (manufacturer suggest retail price)
    2. buy from a company that sells specific lines of furniture and purchase at MSRP or a bit less.
    3. buy directly through your landscape design company. We have access to all of these outdoor furniture companies and can provide you with better deals.

To get started, start viewing furniture by going directly to a company’s website.

Janus et Cie

Brown Jordan

DEDON

Or, you can go to a website for a company that represents multiple lines of outdoor furniture, which then directly connects you to more websites.

There is no reason to have luxury outdoor furniture shopping being the “thing” that is frustrating. We can help directly you to more sites and other luxury furniture designers that we work with.
