I discovered these awesome containers while touring a garden in Michigan several years ago. Sure, the plantings are nice, but what really makes these containers awesome is the towers, made simply of four tall bamboo stakes and some raffia. Try imagining the containers without them. Not quite so cool, huh? Even without vines, the tuteurs would make a great statement, and they brought the containers into scale with their surroundings–a large pool adjacent to a lake-side mansion.
