Using planters to introduce greenery to public spaces - benefits

Using planters to introduce greenery to public spaces - benefits

Planters provide ways for shrubs, herbaceous and flowering plants and grasses to be introduced into public spaces where planting would not otherwise be possible. Introducing greenery improves public areas by softening the landscape, encouraging people to stay and enjoy, and even contributes to improving public health. With a wide range of standalone styles, and planter benches and seats available, it's never been easier to create green spaces in our cities and towns.
