Our current carnivorous plant set-up isn't much to look at. We have them in cement mixing tubs in our greenhouse. Not being exposed to the Texas winds and thunderstorms really keeps their pitchers looking good. I miss having them out actually in the garden, but since they are healthier and look much better, in the greenhouse they will stay for right now.
Here is the garden we had at our old house. There were some good and bad points to this set-up. After a few years of this look. The carnivorous were moved to pots in plastic wading pools. This system was better, but still wasn't perfect. Texas is a hard place to grow these plant.
