The patio container garden is a premier source of organically grown vegetables when gardening space is limited. Doubling also as butterfly gardens and inner city oases, container gardens are hobbies for any budget and purpose. The ease with which the hobbyist can give the patio a makeover is another reason why container gardening is so popular.

Updates in color and shape also help to adapt a patio garden to a home’s exterior makeover.
