For professional landscapers and interiorscapers, few products are so important as the planters themselves. A quality planter sets the tone for how the rest of the landscaping design will come together. Of course, in professional applications, great care must be taken to select planters that can stand the test of time and continue to enhance the landscape for many years to come. Here are a few of the reasons that professionals trust fiberglass planters for all of their landscaping needs:
High Durability Finish
One of the best features of fiberglass planters is the durable finish of the planter material. Unlike other types of planters that fade or discolor when left outside, fiberglass planters are remarkably resilient in the sun, rain and even in dry climates where there is a lot of dust. By using a high quality automotive finish, you will see a long lasting finish that is designed to fight the elements day in and day out.
Fiberglass planters are also remarkably low maintenance thanks to the durability of their finish. The outer surface is made to be cleaned with mild soap and water. All you need to do is spray it down and wipe it off with a soft cloth. There is no need for scrubbing or harsh chemical cleaners. Since fiberglass resin cures to form a strong, solid surface you will not have to deal with dirt and grime getting into the pores of the material like it does with clay and other common planter materials. The less time it takes to keep your planters looking great, the brighter they will continue to shine in your landscape design year after year.
Fiberglass planters offer a great opportunity for flexibility in your landscape design thanks to their lightweight nature. While other planters can weigh hundreds of pounds, fiberglass planters are significantly thinner and lighter thanks to the strength and durability of the woven fiber layers, so they can be moved or placed on surfaces that have a limited load capacity. In fact, being able to move your planters can save you a ton of money over having to buy new ones every time you hope to redecorate.
Plant health should always be at the forefront of your mind when you choose a planter. Fiberglass offers numerous benefits for your plants in terms of drainage and insulation among other things. For instance, thanks to the lightweight nature of fiberglass planters, it is possible to rotate your plants when necessary to give them the sunlight they need, without the worry of creating unwanted back pain. Another bonus is that fiberglass planters are made specifically to encourage proper drainage through the bottom with carefully drilled holes. Also another great feature is that during the change of seasons, you don’t have to worry about your planter cracking due to the weather’s extreme cold or heat. With proper drainage, the fiberglass won’t be affected by acute temperatures. It will hold.
Of course, fiberglass planters are also the most flexible type of planters available. They can be custom ordered in any shape or size to enhance the look of your landscape. Professionals choose these planters to give a landscape a more modern, sleek look that stands out from traditional clay pots.
