There are many things you need to consider when choosing
garden containers for your home and garden needs. Let’s start with the obvious and that is what
is the planter going to be used for? Are
you looking for a garden pot to grow herbs and vegetables in? Is this planter more for beauty and décor or
is it to fill a blank area on the patio or porch.
Terracotta garden pottery has been around longer than any
other substance besides baskets. It is
made out of clay that breathes and is considered most healthy for a plants root
system. Terracotta is rustic and natural
looking and comes in many styles and sizes.
As you must know a clay garden pot can only come so large. This is
because they are fired inside a kiln and kilns are only so large. The larger
the clay pot the more issues with cracks forming while being fired.
So, if you want a large garden planter you need to consider
them made from mixes that can be poured into molds and cured over time instead
of being fired in a kiln. Concrete,
Sandstone and Poly Resin can all be made in huge sizes since they are made with
molds. They are durable and long lasting
which is what you want and need if you are using a large planter.
Glazed or ceramic colored pottery is great because it comes
in shiny, colors and finishes. Blue,
Red, Green etc and so many more, where you can match your garden pottery to your
home or landscape décor. These pots are
usually durable but only frost resistant which means they can’t handle the cold
freezing temperatures. Glazed garden
pots are perfect for indoors where they add interest and beauty along with function
to your homes design and décor.
Do you live in an apartment where you need a lightweight
container where you can move it around, fill it up or take it with you when your
needs change over time? Then poly resin
is the way to go. This is not an ordinary plastic pot but a commercial grade
non-fade, will never crack, chip or warp or break. With 32 color choices these are the super
choice for indoors or outdoors.
