Bright buds and green shrubs add a punch of color to your outdoor space making it feel alive and vibrant. One of the best ways to incorporate some more color, pattern, or texture into your backyard space is with planters.

You can mix and match them with your plants to create a look that is perfect for your yard or patio. Here are our favorite colorful, stylish planters for the 2014 summer season.
