1. With outdoor planters, there is often a hole at the bottom to drain excess water. These are good because they prevent too much water from accumulating in the planter. Don't forget and bring it inside for winter, though.
2. We like metal outdoor planters because they usually age very gracefully, weathering in a very pleasant way. And since they're metal and often hollow, they don't weigh nearly as much as stone or cement, making it easier to move them inside when the time comes.
3. Outdoor wood planters are a classic choice for landscaping uses. Our cedar selections are insect and rot-resistant, smell exquisite, and feature pre-drilled drainage holes.
4. Outdoor hanging planters provide the beauty and ease of care that you want with smaller plants and flowers. Typically, they're lined with a mesh fabric that lets unnecessary water drain out. A great option for the busy gardener.
5. Have a peek at our oversized, large outdoor planters for a singular decorative piece at your entryway or on your patio. Great for trees, expansive flower arrangements, or tiny gardens handily at waist-level, there are loads of reasons to try them out.
6. The garden urn is an elegant piece ideal for establishing a Victorian or Grecian-style presence in your garden. Made of copper, stone, concrete, or wire, there are great choices for both your taste and budget.
7. We've got some really cool specialty planters such as wheelbarrow planters, trellis planters, and concrete and cast stone planters. If you've seen it, we've got it. And then some.
8. The issue over natural or synthetic materials is a sticky one. Wood and copper are nice, but can be a bit more expensive and require a little upkeep. Some folk just want a good vinyl planter box that requires an occasional spray down. That's okay.
9. Resin planters are lightweight, super durable, and commercial quality. Great for indoor and outdoor use, they're perfect for those looking for minimal maintenance and maximum durability.
10. Don't forget the planter saucer if you don't want water trickling all over the place beneath your plants. No one likes icky rings on the deck or patio. These collect drainage and also help keep the plant moist.
