Her favorite types of arrangements are those which utilize color and texture to match her clients’ preferences and their home’s aesthetic. Working with indoor and outdoor plants, she loves to help clients “bring the outdoors in.” Amy says that not only can indoor plants act as an air purifier, but they’re a beautiful way to decorate with nature, whether they’re tall and bold or soft, like a succulent arrangement.
We asked Amy what her favorite plants for Louisville include. She says for shaded areas she loves the button fern. It’s adorable, has amazing texture, and is a show-stopper in containers. For sunnier areas she feel the same way about the Prince Tut. It checks all her boxes for a container: height, texture, and interest. We also asked Amy how she plans for different seasons. “Generally speaking,” she said, “I plant in spring with the intention of the design lasting all season long into September, and I plant in ways that allows each one the space it needs to grow. Come fall and winter, I love to create designs that reflect the season, using everything from gourds to berries to evergreen branches. There’s no reason a container should ever be empty so a winter design is a great way clients can appreciate their containers during the ‘off’ season.”
Lastly, we asked Amy how she sees the partnership working between her company and ours. She replied: “I see enormous potential between Potted Plantscapes and LWRC. Lee’s clients trust him wholeheartedly and when we can expand our design ideas into their outdoor space or we introduce indoor plants to their home, I think the fact that we have design chemistry will be evident to his clients. He’s a natural in his field and our collaboration seems like a natural next step to what he’s already offering his clients.”
