Raising succulents has become a major trend, and now you can see immaculate succulent gardens featured all over the web. The key to creating a beautiful succulent garden of your own is choosing a proper container and plotting out your space wisely. Succulents are popular because they can be easily mixed and planted together to create a multi-faceted display. Here’s how to choose the best fiberglass planters for your design and why.
Jay Scott’s extra large rectangular Selenge planter is a great starting point for building your succulent garden. This oversized planter provides a broad base with plenty of space for you to plant succulents of any variety. It is a full 84″ long, making it ideal for lining walkways or creating a room divider. Given its size, it is extremely sturdy, while managing to be lightweight thanks to the fiberglass construction. You can easily create a symmetrical look by planting your largest succulents down the middle and filling the sides with smaller, colorful varieties. This is the perfect statement piece for any large room or outdoor space where you want people to gather.
The Short Hayden Collection
If you’re looking for a great multi-tiered planter solution for your succulents, the short Hayden collection is the way to go. This three piece set is perfect for building out a larger display of mixed succulents. The largest of the three planters stands 20″ by 10″ so it is big enough for your large plants, while the two smaller planters can comfortably hold a couple of small plants. The added depth is great if you want to protect the roots of your plants and give them plenty of space to grow. When placed together, you can create a strong aesthetic by choosing from five different finish colors and using stones or pebbles in varied colors to tie the look together. Due to the size of these planters when placed together, you will want to make sure you have plenty of floor space where they can play a central role in the room or entryway.
Another of Jay Scott’s popular fiberglass planters is the Timbrell. This unusual side-by-side design features two bowls for planting, connected by a narrow strip in the middle. This creates a sturdy base with two solid supports while still having a sleek, modern look. The total planter is only 7″ tall, but it stretches 42″ wide, which makes it perfect for window sills, the center of conference tables, or placing along half-walls. This planter looks great in either matte or metallic finishes and can be purchased with drainage holes for outdoor use. You will find that the dual bowl design allows you to create a mirrored look with two large plants and an assortment of smaller succulents around the outer edges and filling in the middle space.
What to Look For in a Succulent Planter:
These are just three of the best fiberglass succulent planters around today, but there is more than meets the eye when it comes to choosing fiberglass planters for your design. From the first steps of construction to the final finish, you need to be sure that your planter is up for the task of supporting your succulent display. Make sure that the paints and coatings used are safe for your plants, and inspect closely for signs of flaking or chipping upon delivery, which may cause your planter to crack in the future. Make sure that your planter is safe for use indoors or outdoors, and has proper drainage depending on where you plan to plant your succulents.
