Outdoor Hanging Baskets Are A Space-Saving Solution for City Gardeners


Urban cities throughout the United States have long admired outdoor hanging baskets for their ability to add the bounties and beauties of nature in smaller dwelling spaces where planting in the ground is not an option.

Traditionally, outdoor hanging baskets provide the perfect growing environment for overhanging or creeping flowers such as Impatiens and Million Bells, as well as decorative vines and ivy.

But today’s younger generation of gardeners has started utilizing small and large hanging baskets for plants that go beyond the traditional such as fruits and vegetables, herbs, and even succulents, as a practical and clever way to combat planting limitations in urban environments.

Outdoor hanging baskets have truly become the ultimate space-saving solution for city gardeners. Garden centers and big-box stores should have a variety of examples in their inventory – both pre-assembled and ready for planting – as demand continues to increase.

For garden centers and big-box stores, outdoor hanging baskets are an ideal solution for pre-assembled baskets. In addition, as more and more gardeners enter the market, pre-assembled hanging baskets are a popular choice for novices who struggle with pairing plants together in a decorative arrangement. 

Additionally, with limited time due to career pressures, extra-curricular activities, and frequent errands, pre-assembled hanging baskets provide an incredible convenience for homeowners as the soil, container, and flower selections have already been well thought out by a professional in advance.   

Here at The HC Companies, our outdoor hanging baskets are available in traditional and modern designs, in a rainbow of colors to fit any design style. Matching hangers and saucers to prevent dripping water guarantees a cohesive appearance and overall utility and durability. Many also feature water-saving technology for the consumer’s convenience. 

With over 40 hanging baskets to choose from in many shapes and sizes, garden centers and big-box stores will have no issues stocking their inventory with a variety of designs to suit today’s more sophisticated and demanding gardener.
