Plants are a great way to “dress up” your outdoor spaces. Many people who garden also use planters, whether it’s to fill in bare spots in the garden, decorate a porch or patio, or contain seasonal or more finicky blooms.
Even if you don’t have space to plant a garden, potted plants can help add a touch of greenery and a splash of color on your balcony, patio or porch.
Container gardens also are great for growing herbs and vegetables without sacrificing space for your favorite flowers!
The best thing about garden planters is that they come in every style and color imaginable. That means there is a planter for every space and every design preference, one that complements whatever size or type of plant you want to grow.
As we anticipate a new planting season, we offer the following planter suggestions to complement common design styles:

Although this “tree face” garden planter appears to be carved out of wood, it is made from durable materials that will withstand the elements for years. Hang this planter on a garden wall, fence or tree as a real conversation starter.
Statues that serve as planters are a traditional garden element that can add sophistication to your outdoor space. Garden statue planters typically feature classic or religious figures, like angels, although they can also depict more playful themes. Statuary planters work well in a memorial garden, as well as on a raised platform like a bench, garden wall or porch ledge.
The simple beauty of a modern style ceramic planter shines, but allows the plant to remain the star. Modern planters feature clean lines with limited ornamentation, supporting planting styles from lush to minimalistic.

Urn planters have been around since Roman times and can still be found in gardens around the world. Traditionally made from stone, concrete or terra cotta, modern urns in synthetic materials make for easier care and maneuverability. You’ll commonly find garden urns on outdoor stairways, flanking a doorway or at the head of a border hedge.
Farmhouse styling continues to remain popular and this “Farm to Market” two-piece iron plant stand combines the typical vintage farmhouse look with versatility. The rectangular container can be used with or without the stand as a planter or ice chest.
