A Guide to Modular Fiberglass Planters

| Written by:

Pego, Rio©2019_The GatesWhen referring to modular planters, many people imagine an undulating structure made from curved, segmented planters that are joined together and assorted with beautiful, lush plants. However, modern modular planters go beyond the limiting shapes and interlocking systems of traditional modular plant containers.

Because different design projects require different products, based on specific requirements and applications, the modern modular planter systems provide individual plant containers that are designed to fit together. When these planters are arranged next to each other, without any gaps, they can create the illusion of an extra-large plant container holding a wide variety of plants. This could help you create a more cohesive look throughout your space.

Selecting Modular Planters

Large planters are a popular choice for modern design schemes. On the downside, transporting and arranging these products at different locations throughout your property can be quite tricky due to their sizes, weights, and the time it may take to put them together as your project design indicates.

This is where modular fiberglass planters step in. Compared to other modular plant containers made of wood, concrete, or metal, which are heavy and impractical, the individual planter modules made of fiberglass are lightweight. Quick and easy to move around and arrange next to each other, individual fiberglass plant containers can be used to develop a variety of modular planter designs.  

Furthermore, the modern modular fiberglass planters without interlocking systems are the preferred choice of many interiorscapers, decorators, and landscapers. Not only can these planters be arranged easily and quickly in different settings, according to specific design configurations; they also provide more flexibility than the products with joining systems. As a result, these planters allow complete flexibility for any subsequent design modification, if the intended use of space should change.

Whether you prefer curved plant containers with graceful shapes or square planters with straight lines, you can use the modular fiberglass planters without interlocking systems to divide areas, provide visual privacy, or build acoustic barriers.

However, an important aspect you should consider is that modular planter designs require a level floor. If you have a sloped, uneven floor, you might need to place angled items or rubber furniture coasters under the “short” side of your plant containers in order to obtain some perfectly aligned rows of planters.

Modular Planters Can Fit Any Design and Any Setting

Because modular planter systems can take up a lot of space, they are usually recommended for larger areas. Some typical uses of these planters include separating seating areas from walkways and surrounding terraces to offer more privacy to guests or customers. Although modular fiberglass planters are a good fit for different settings, choosing the right planter sizes and colors is critical in order to create some beautiful decorative items that could complement your overall design scheme.

In a square or rectangular room painted white, for instance, you could place a black, 24-inch Montroy Cube Planter diagonally, in one of the corners. Next to it and adjacent to the wall, arrange a black, 54-inch-long and 8-inch-wide Camoux Rectangular Planter. In front of the Camoux Planter and next to the Montroy Cube Planter, position a red, 48-inch-long and 8-inch-wide Camoux Rectangular Planter. A silver, 36-inch-long and 8-inch-wide Camoux Planter placed in front of the 48-inch-long Camoux Planter and next to the Montroy Planter could complete this interesting planter series. That’s because the individual widths of the three Camoux Planters used equally the 24-inch width of the Montroy Planter. You could also replace two of the Camoux Planters we used in our example with a 16-inch-wide Tolga Rectangular Planter.

By reversely arranging the same Camoux planters, adjacent to the other lateral surface of the Montroy Cube Planter, you can create an interesting mirror image for a surprising twist. Depending on your color palette, different planter colors could help you come up with a more attractive contrast. As previously mentioned, there should be no gaps left between the planters in order to create the illusion of an extra-large plant container.

Other planters that we make available at Jay Scotts Collections, such as the Potsdam Rectangular Planter, Perth Planter Box, and Britz Tall Planter, could also be used as modular plant containers to create interesting designs. Grouping together square and rectangular planters in different widths, lengths, and heights is a great idea to develop some truly unique planter arrangements.

If you’re looking for a way to transform your indoor or outdoor space without having to deal with a time-consuming, potentially expensive landscaping or construction project, modular planters are some of the best options available nowadays. Besides allowing you to create the specific design you have in mind, these planters are easy to use, easy to handle, and easy to maintain. These characteristics give you complete freedom and peace of mind.
