Refresh Your Porch with Bridgeview Tall Planters from Step2 Home

Published:

This feature is brought to you in collaboration with Step2 Home & Patio.

When it comes to adding a little freshness to the front of your home, one quick way to do the trick is by adding some new plants.

But beyond the plants themselves, one way to really take things to a new level is by updating the planters that hold them. Aside from potentially being out of style, older planters can show their age, and not in a trendy “distressed” sorta way.

While they’re known for creating awesome toys, the folks at The Step2 Company also have a fantastic line of Home & Patio products that I’ve always been a big fan of — going back to my days as a Step2 Ambassador a decade or so ago.

Did you know that they make beautiful planters?

We recently added a pair of Bridgeview Tall Outdoor Planters to our front porch. These sophisticated planters come in multiple colors, and we chose black to accent our decor.

Each square planter measures 16.84″ x 16.84″ and stands 26″ tall. They can be used as self-watering planters or they have included drill points for drainage. The color is built into the double-walled resin construction for a finish that will never fade or chip.

Unbox, drill the drainage holes, and you’re ready to plant!

In just under an hour, I was able to add a splash of fresh color to our space — and you can too!

Simply fill the planter with a lightweight material to support drainage (I like perlite) followed by a quality potting mix. I prefer Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix as I’ve been using it for years with great results. Once the planters are filled to your desired height, it’s time to plant!

Drop-N-Decorate
Drop-N-Decorate arrangements from Home Depot are a quick and easy way to add impressive flowers to any space.

In this case, I went with a pair of Drop-N-Decorate — ready-made arrangements that are sold at Home Depot. After placing your flowers, simply fill in the space with additional potting mix, compact it, water, and you’re done!

The biggest challenge? Deciding where to place the finished planters — flanking the front door (which looks great — see above) or as an accent near our seating nook.
