Choose an area of your outdoors that has been a challenge for you. This area typically will be a covered patio, an entry, a section of your yard or a corner behind a pool. It is an area where you feel that pots will improve the look and give your home the added beauty you are looking for.  Here’s a recommendation from a recent online client:

I enjoyed several of Marylee’s “Potted in the Desert” seminars before beginning to create my own container garden. Good pots and the soil that goes in them are heavy, so I wanted to be sure to have the right pots in the right places from the outset and know what would thrive and look beautiful for many seasons.
For the cost of one good-quality 24” pot, Marylee toured my back patio via Facetime, listened to and heard my thoughts on what kind of garden I wanted, made practical suggestions, and then designed a wonderful plan for pot placement and groupings as well as specific planting “recipes” for each pot. And she was available by text and email with any questions I had as I planted my flowers and plants.
I’m so delighted with the result, Marylee is already assisting with my next project, my front entry courtyard.    David M. Green Valley, AZ
