Backyard accessories for function and a natural design
With the prospect of an actual tropical getaway becoming evermore elusive, pandemic-weary consumers want to create a backyard resembling paradise. Spa retailers can offer accessories that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing, such as rock speakers and high-quality planters.
Outdoor planters have come a long way from clay pots. Consumers are looking to display oasis-style plants in sleek, durable planters that resemble those found at high-end resorts in exotic destinations.
Pots Planters & More PotsPlantersAndMore.com Fiberglass and Metal Planters Fiberglass planters MSRP: $81.95–$1,205.95 Metal planters MSRP: $325.95–$2,702.95
This manufacturer offers a large variety of planters ranging from fiberglass to metal in a number of colors, shapes and sizes.
Each fiberglass planter holds a three-year warranty from the time of acceptance of the product. They are frost-resistant and available in both glossy and matte finishes. Color samples are available for all 46 color options.
Designed for durability and performance, Pots Planters & More’s custom metal planters for commercial and residential projects are made from one of two metals: aluminum or corten steel. The aluminum is a heavy-gauge, marine-grade, recycled 5052 aluminum alloy also used for boat and ship building. Corten is a weathering steel. This material is a corrosion-resistant steel that left uncoated develops an outer-layer rust patina. This patina protects the steel from additional corrosion and creates an impactful look.

Each fiberglass planter is created with a custom mold in the exact size, shape and dimensions of the final product. High-quality polyester resin is then applied several times over the mold to create the final product. Once the final coat becomes hard, the planter is meticulously hand-sanded for a smooth and continuous finish.
Minimal care and maintenance required (occasional wax/polish)
18 colors from white and gray to cobalt blue and tangerine
