From decorating your front porch with planters, installing larger planters near the doors, or designing better arrangements for the patio, there are plenty of ways to make a good first impression. From simple clay planters to dramatic concrete planters, there is no shortage of options when it comes to adding plants to your front or back porch.

Something as simple as a colorful planter or a tall planter can add some nice flair to your space. Some people believe that planters and pots must be a neutral colour, but painting them in the same colors as your flowers will add a fun twist to your outdoor space. With photos taken in a backyard garden, there are many low-cost ways you can add colorful container plants in your planters and window boxes. Another trick I love is using a mixture of fake flower stems and realistic, low-maintenance pot plants such as ferns to get Pinterest-worthy planters on the porch that need little maintenance.

This next group of elaborate porch planters also includes boxwood, but I like to add some colorful flowers (I think it is an impatien?) around the base. Technically, this is not a planter, but I like the way this clematis is planted into a small space that is where a porch pole is placed. The height of this planter makes such a statement, and I like the way the flowers are nestled on each level. With its added height, this fun, big planter makes a bold statement to your porch scenery, and draws your eyes up, giving your porch an expansive look.

Think outside of the box, and you will be able to repurpose some of your old wood boards to make this fun, big planter. If you have an open porch, you could create cement planters which would act as multi-purpose trim. You can use sets of these in front porch planters of any kind…even big, cheap clay potting soil.

An easy approach for porch transformations is to weather an average terracotta pot for a rustic, antiqued look. An old wood box or coffer has enough character that it makes the porch feel a little more cozy, if used as a planter.

Tall planters placed either side of your door filled with lush greenery and flowers can make even a small entryway look grand, and they can have an enormous impact with only a little room. Hanging planters that sharply contour the front door stand out against the otherwise white decor. There is just something about a beautiful collection of planters flanking a front door that makes my heart glad.
