Why Fiberglass Planters Are the BEST Choice for Gardeners & Landscapers
If you have ever browsed the garden center at your local home improvement store or taken a look at the variety of garden pots and containers available online, you may have been a little overwhelmed. This is of course because planters are now available in a wide selection of sizes and types of materials. While you may be tempted to purchase one of those flimsy plastic pots because you are on a tight budget, you might want to think again. You could actually be losing money, as these cheap planters tend to quickly break, crack or split. Instead of wasting your hard-earned cash on pots that don’t last, it’s always a good idea to invest in the planters that will last year after year, season after season. Well, you may be wondering what the best kind of planter material is. Right? It’s fiberglass of course! Here are a couple of reasons why we feel fiberglass planters are much superior to other types of gardening pots and containers.
The #1 reason why fiberglass planters are the BEST choice for gardeners and landscapers alike is because they are much more durable than others. They don’t splinter, crack or weather when exposed to the elements. This is because fiberglass is super strong, fade-resistant, chemical-resistant and corrosion-proof.
Although they are some of the strongest pots and planters on the market, fiberglass plant containers are actually quite affordable, especially when you factor in how much money you will save by not having to replace them every year. You’d be surprised to find that over time they cost only a fraction of those galvanized steel planters or wooden garden containers.
REQUIRE LITTLE MAINTENANCE
Fiberglass planters are also the recommended choice because they require very little maintenance. In all actuality, the only maintenance they require may be a little light cleaning or dusting depending on the environment in which you live. To do so, simply wipe the garden containers down with a damp sponge or rag, wipe the surface with a dusting cloth or spray them down with a water hose. If you want to give them a little extra attention, just polish them up with automotive or marine paint wax. That’s it!
Another reason why fiberglass pots and containers are the preferred choice is because they are easy to decorate with. They are available in a wide variety of colors and finishes, allowing you to choose the ones that coordinate with your landscape, garden, patio or green room.
Our fiberglass pots have a low expansion/contraction rate, so you can comfortably place them either indoors or outdoors. Place a few of them in the foyer of your home to greet your guests with a touch of freshness, use them to plant your herb garden or use them to create a privacy fence on the deck.
