The Urban Gardener: Stoop Planters

Stairs to some, outdoor space to others — however you refer to your stoop, it's a great opportunity for a little gardening. A few pots — flowers, herbs or even vegetables — can give the most basic set of stairs great curb appeal.

Stoop planters are a great way to add green when you don't have any outdoor space. One on each side of the door helps define the entry: pots on each step provide a lush look and abundant greenery. Here are some great ideas and inspiration for how to decorate and maximize your stoop's potential.
