Container Design

Container Garden Design

Enjoy custom­designed containers filled with colorful plants and accents throughout the year. We are happy to help you create your perfect entryway, back patio oasis or anything inbetween. You can choose from one of our pre­planted designs or have our staff create one just for you.

Ready­to­go Designs

Lush pre­planted containers are available at both locations. Browse a variety of styles in spring, summer, fall and winter.

Customized Designs

We are very flexible when it comes to creating custom designs for you.

> If you need new containers, select from our extensive line of pottery and a designer will work with you to create a design that reflects your style.

> If you already have containers, bring in your personal containers and a designer will work with you to create a design that reflects your style.

> If you want us to do all the heavy lifting, The Growing Place will send out one of our experienced Container Garden Design staff to your home to assess your site and customize your plantings to your personal style. Please call 630.355.4000 and ask for

Sandy to schedule. Rates are set individually and are based on cost of materials and labor. Stop by or call the Container Garden Department for more information and to place an order. We are always happy to find a way to work within your budget so don't hesitate to ask one of our Container Garden Design staff. At both locations you can find them hard at work by the Annuals counter. 

Holiday Decoration Design

Bring a touch of nature to your holidays with designer­created fall and holiday wreaths, swags, containers and arrangements. Visit our Holiday Shops at both locations to find distinctive pre­made wreaths and unique decorations you can drop into your containers at home.
