Who wouldn't like to see a plant or two brightening up the outdoor space, when so much of our time is spent in a sea of concrete? Large outdoor planters are a good way to add some greenery to your location, particularly in an office park, or somewhere similar, which doesn't have a lot of plant-life to offer. These large outdoor planters can be stand-alone, or designed to be used alongside park benches. Large outdoor planters come in multiple sizes and designs, and plenty of different material choices, as well.
There are plastic and fiberglass planters, as well as cement and metal, along with other materials. Some large outdoor planters are designed to be something in addition to planters. There are planters that are benches, so you can enjoy the flowers, while also providing seating at your location. There are even outdoor planter designs where the low planter part surrounds a mailbox.
There are ways to make large outdoor planters lighter than otherwise, which might be of particular interest to you if you want to use them at your home. You can use layers of Styrofoam to fill up part of the planter, instead of it all being completely filled with soil. This will help to make it lighter, which is a positive in a home setting where you may want to be able to rearrange your planters occasionally, and therefore need more portable arrangements. In an office park or at a playground, though, a benefit to the planter being heavy would be that it would be that much more difficult to move around for a prank or theft. You may choose to use all soil in such a situation, instead of trying to make a more portable, lightweight decoration.
Some large outdoor planters have wood trim around a concrete planter. There are square planters and round planters, deep planters and shallow planters. Some planters are powder coated steel and can pair well with coordinating trash receptacles. Some of the planters come with plastic liners. You just need to determine what your needs are and then look to find the right planter for you. Planters can help protect the plants inside from damage.
Before you start designing your park spaces or your mall designs, be sure to look into the options available to you with regard to outdoor planters. You will want to choose planters that fit in well with the rest of your design. You'll want to choose the option that best fits your budget, and your design plan. You'll need to decide whether you intend to use the planters for smaller plants, or for planting trees. Your decision may affect the type of planter you'll choose. Whether you choose to plant plants or trees may depend in part if you are looking to provide shade or not. If you're providing planters in places with natural greenery, that may be less of a consideration, but if the planter will be somewhere in the middle of an office park, or somewhere similar, it may well be a high priority on your list.
