A Terra Cotta Clay Pot For Atmosphere

This clay pot is a great example of how placement and positioning of different elements in landscaping, gardens, courtyards, and patio designs can make a difference in atmosphere and expression. In most cases, a terra cotta pot like this would be upright and possibly hold a display of growing or cut flowers.

However, simply laying the pot on its side gives the impression of a less formal placement that may also suggest elements have been displaced and strewn about due to aging or mishap. In container gardens and alone, this same principle applies even more if the terra cotta clay pot was broken or with broken statues and pillars that represent fallen empires and civilizations. Adding growing plants in and about the decor can also add to the atmosphere of being aged or ancient.
