Thrillers, Fillers, and Spillers

Trillers, Fillers, and Spillers

I learn something new every day. This afternoon I was out meeting with Aaron Law with Marlin Landscape Systems.

We had met with Aaron several weeks ago about doing the landscape design for our new home in Frisco, Texas.

Today, we got a peek at his work. As we chatted, we mentioned we wanted to add some color to the short columns in front of the home. He talked about adding pots to the columns and adding annual plants. As we explored the idea, he stated, “you need a thriller, some fillers, and a spiller.”


Once again he stated, “You need a thriller, a filler, and some spiller”

The thriller is the tall plant in the center of the pot, the filler is the colorful plants that fill in around the thriller, and the spiller spills over the sides of the pot.

You have to love this business! We meet new people every day and learn something new every day!
