Using Curves in Landscape Design
Curves, in landscape design, can soften the rigidity of straight lines, bring a sense of fluidity to outdoor spaces, and create a harmonious flow that can be nothing short of enchanting. One of the key elements that can help you achieve these captivating curves in your landscaping projects is the strategic use of round garden pots. The use of curves in design can help you create unique and inviting landscapes.
The Art of Curves in Landscaping
When it comes to outdoor spaces, the contrast of curves with the straight lines and angles of buildings and hardscapes can add a touch of elegance and grace. Curved pathways, arching plant beds, and rounded garden pots can transform a space from a stark, unyielding environment to a welcoming and harmonious oasis. The key to successful landscape design often lies in the ability to soften the overall look, and curves play a pivotal role in achieving this transformation.
Round Garden Pots: A Versatile Choice
IOTA’s round garden pots are a versatile choice that can enhance the appeal of your landscape projects. Their rounded forms are perfect for adding a soft touch to an existing design filled with corners and edges, making for beautiful focal points that draw the eye and create a sense of balance. Unlike square or trough planters, which excel at creating borders and divisions, round pots offer a more subtle impression. They can stand as standalone pieces or be used in a series, guiding the viewer’s gaze while harmoniously blending into the landscape.
Design Ideas with Round Garden Pots
The applications for round garden pots are as diverse as the landscapes they inhabit. They work seamlessly in both residential and commercial settings, offering countless design possibilities. Here are a few ideas to inspire your next project:
- Welcoming Entryways: Flank the entrance of a building with large round pots filled with vibrant flowers or evergreen plants to create an inviting atmosphere.
- Pathway Elegance: Use round pots to line pathways and create a sense of direction, turning a stroll into a graceful journey.
- Courtyard Focal Points: In enclosed spaces, such as courtyards, a well-placed round planter can be a stunning focal point.
- Poolside Oasis: Enhance the poolside ambiance with sleek round pots, offering a sense of tranquility and sophistication.
- Natural Harmony: In more naturalistic designs, round pots can echo the shape of natural boulders or tree trunks, blending seamlessly with the environment.

“Great service and quality product
I ordered 3 Manhattan round pots, the colour was not in stock so Rob kept me informed as to when they would be ready. He rang and confirmed when they were ready to transport. They arrived well packed no damage and were just as pictured on the website. I couldn’t be happier with both the service and the pots.”

I will take photographs when the roses look a bit fuller and send them to you”
IOTA’s round and trough fiberglass planters helped green this parking lot in Red Rooster, Maroochydore, QLD.
The area along Maroochydore Road hosts a variety of establishments and some wide roads. The surrounding area has some large trees, however it is still mostly concrete so the areas where you can plant are quite limited. The parking area, in particular, needed some plant life. The planters offer a planting solution without having to dig up the pavement.
