There is little wonder why as there is great diversity in the product categories, from business services, fences, gates, lumber, outdoor furniture, irritation, living walls, plants, soils, and technology, to garden accessories and planters
How Jay Scotts Planters Fit In
Out of the above product categories, planters remain an integral part of design and landscaping. It’s no wonder our planters continue to be a firm favorite amongst landscape architects and those who supply landscaping projects.
Jay Scotts has earned a global reputation as a leading designer and wholesale supplier of top-line planter products. This is because our planters are made from the finest commercial-grade fiberglass delivering high performance, durability, and strength despite its lightweight characteristics.
Our planters are then hand-finished with UV-protective high-grade automotive paint, making them ideal for use outside in all kinds of weather conditions.
