“Thriller, Filler, Spiller” – the design technique that adds drama to a dull backyard and color to a neglected corner of any patio. Simply follow these 3 steps to create a beautiful container garden in no time.
1. Thrillers. These plants and ornamental grasses bring height and drama to your garden. Place them either in the center or back of the container.
2. Fillers. Use these rounded or mounded plants to make your container look full and robust. They should be placed in front of, or around, the ‘Thrillers’.
3. Spillers. Round out your garden with these trailing plants. Place them in the front of the container so they can hang over the edge.
