Outdoor planters are a beautiful way to accent the character of your home. Beautifully rustic, they contrast with bright flowers and complement earthy greens in a formal garden or a simple patio setting.
When it comes to outdoor planters, bigger is better. Weighty planters can stand up to the elements, and make a bold statement in the garden. Try a decorative urn for tall plants, or a low bowl with a distinctive rim for a grouping of smaller specimens. For outdoor settings, planters with a weathered patina are the perfect choice; they will continue to change over time, adding new life to your garden each year. At the front of your home, a display of hanging baskets made from rattan, zinc or weathered metal is a tried-and-true accent that can be replanted each season for a fresh look.
