Another way I love to use boxwoods in landscaping is in pots and urns. It’s a great way to add greenery to a patio or porch. Depending on the container and the setting, they can be traditional or contemporary. The beautiful green shrub can soften hard surfaces such as cement and brick patios and add warmth to wood decks.
