Pots must be so wonderful they can remain empty, if desired. Here, they needed to match the history of the home & be within a certain size range.
Perfect, above, they do not draw attention to themselves. And still allow seating on the low stone-capped columns.
2 men/pot setting them in place. My general contractor said, as the pot, above, went up, "...That's a ballsy spot." As if he earned a response.
3 years getting to this layer, placing pots. Best part? Looks like they've always been there.

Pics taken at jobsite last month. Found the pots, plus several more, at Scott Antique Market a couple of months ago.
Did you pick up on the major component of getting the right pot in the right spot in your landscape? Something few are good at, patience.
Knowing to choose pots that can remain empty is such an important 'discovery' I claim it as one of my inventions. If you think through the carbon footprint of 'annuals & potting soil & fertilizer' for container plantings along with your time & money you'll understand beautiful empty pots.
Of course planting sublime pots is a layer of fun in the right season of a busy life.
