Which planters are best for me?


Rotomolded, concrete, fiberglass, terracotta, steel & corten, injected molded plastic, and stone. There are various varieties of planters ranging from sizes to the materials the planter itself is made of. Each type of planter material comes with its own set of benefits, and the choice depends on various factors such as aesthetics, durability, weight, and specific planting needs. Here's an overview of the benefits associated with different types of planters:

Rotomolded Planters:

  • Benefits: Lightweight, durable, and resistant to fading and cracking.

  • Ideal Use: Suitable for both indoor and outdoor settings, especially in locations where portability is a priority.

Concrete Planters:

  • Benefits: Extremely durable and stable, providing a strong foundation for larger plants.

  • Ideal Use: Ideal for permanent outdoor installations where weight is not a concern. Adds a classic and substantial look to landscapes.

Fiberglass Planters:

  • Benefits: Lightweight, durable, and available in various shapes and sizes. Resistant to corrosion.

  • Ideal Use: Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, especially in areas where weight needs to be minimized without compromising durability.

Terracotta Planters:

  • Benefits: Breathable material that allows air and moisture exchange for plant roots. Adds a rustic and traditional aesthetic.

  • Ideal Use: Well-suited for plants that prefer well-aerated soil and for locations with a warmer climate.

Steel & Corten Planters:

  • Benefits: Modern and industrial aesthetic, highly durable, and resistant to weathering. Corten steel develops a protective rust-like appearance.

  • Ideal Use: Suitable for contemporary designs and outdoor spaces where a sleek and industrial look is desired.

Injected Molded Plastic Planters:

  • Benefits: Lightweight, cost-effective, and available in a wide range of designs and colors. Can mimic the appearance of other materials.

  • Ideal Use: Commonly used for temporary or seasonal plantings, especially in commercial or residential spaces where versatility is key.

Stone Planters:

  • Benefits: Timeless and elegant, providing excellent stability and durability. Resistant to weathering.

  • Ideal Use: Well-suited for upscale landscapes, gardens, or historical settings where a classic and enduring appearance is desired.

Each type of planter has its own specific characteristics suited for its conditions which ultimately relies on the user to determine if it meets their needs such as climate, weight, aesthetic, maintenance, and longevity.
