Who can benefit from fiberglass rectangular planters?
Fiberglass rectangular planters are used in a number of different industries from retail stores, to hospitality, and for residential applications in the form of decor and interior design.
Using fiberglass rectangular planters for interior and exterior landscaping has many benefits for both business owners and the general public. Here are 3 reasons why:
3 Benefits behind every rectangular planter box
Rectangular plant containers can serve a variety of purposes, including simpler plant management, design framing, privacy, and so on, which is difficult to achieve with many other planter designs.
1. Rectangular planters offer better functional organization
By using Jay Scotts rectangular planters your plants will not only have enough room to flourish, but a large rectangular planter also means you can support more plants in a clean and professional way.
Big pots like our Antwerp Wide Rectangular Planter make it easier to organize your plants and limit untidy areas of your decor. This solution is extremely convenient, particularly in a business setting.
2. Rectangular planters can privatize your indoor or outdoor areas
Jay Scotts long rectangle planters such as the Narbonne Long Rectangular Planter are the perfect choice for privacy, as the four flat walls allow you to fit the pots together without any gaps.
Lining your porch, backyard, even your swimming pool with large rectangular planters and tall plants ensures peaceful privacy for residencies.
Rectangular planters also bring a sense of privacy to your commercial space while remaining classy and comfortable! Forward-thinking offices often use long rectangular planters to divide rooms and offer a degree of open privacy that cubicle walls never could.
3. Rectangular planters can create minimalistic decoration
Minimalism is a trend that can be found in a variety of settings, including fashion, hospitality, and home décor. Jay Scott's rectangular planters like the Amesbury Narrow Rectangular Planter were created with this inspiration in mind. Clean and neat shapes are one of the basic principles of minimalism.
Multiple plants in a single large planter reduces the number of containers in the room and helps to calm down a design scheme that is slightly too busy, leaving more open space to add to the minimalistic feel.
Jay Scott's modern large rectangular planters, with their clean lines, are a perfect match for this design scheme!

Best Jay Scotts colors for rectangular planters
There is a wide variety of trendy and high-quality colors and finishes to choose from for all Jay Scotts planters.
Black and white rectangular planters are the most popular and suit most applications. However, choosing a black planter isn't recommended for hot outdoor locations because the planter may get too hot and stress your plants.
Cobalt blue, eggplant, and satin green planters go well with contemporary-style homes, apartments, and condos.
Beige and other earth tones, like charcoal, brown, bronze, or terracotta, are perfect in rustic settings.
How to fill rectangular planters
There are so many ways to fill your planter without breaking the bank or straining your back. You'll need potting soil for planting in any rectangular container whether it's indoors or outdoors. To fill up your planter simply:
Step 1: Check for drainage holes
Most plants need adequate drainage to thrive. We recommend adding drainage holes to your plant pots, especially for outdoor use. Please specify if you would like this when you order. It’s also possible to add drainage solutions yourself later.
Step 2: Prepare filler for the pot
Instead of using potting soil to fill your pot, use space savers in the bottom half. This will help use less soil and water and make the planter lighter. Materials such as gravel, packing peanuts, or plastic bottles are often used.
Step 3: Protect the fillers in the pot
Separate the filler from the soil with a layer of newspaper, cheesecloth, or landscaping fabric. This step will prevent the potting soil from falling through the cracks.
Step 4: Prepare soil for potting
After the filler, use potting soil to fill the planter to the top. Using potting soil for indoor plants is a must to allow water to drain thoroughly and create an environment for the roots of the plant to thrive.
Step 5: Planting and touching up
Make a small hole a few inches deep in the center of your planter and place your plants right in! If additional potting soil is required, add it around the plants and water as needed. For container plants, wait until the top 2 inches of the potting mix has dried out before watering.
Should rectangular planters have drainage or not?
Plants can die from root rot caused by bacteria and fungi that form in the bottom of a planter when there is too much water in it.
Regardless of the care and watering requirements of each plant, there should be drainage holes in an outdoor rectangular planter to allow excess water to drain away. For indoor planters, we do not recommend drainage holes unless you use a planter tray.
Indoor and outdoor rectangular planter ideas
Landscaping with rectangular planters is one of the best ways to transform your outdoor space into a beautiful and relaxing area. However, the process of creating a cohesive landscape design can be a bit time-consuming.
Here are several ways to get started with rectangular planters if you are looking for an inexpensive way to spruce up a deck, patio, or outdoor area, or even your office!
If you have tall rectangular outdoor planters, think about using the no-fail formula: thriller-filler-spiller.
- Thrillers such as Dahlia flowers are dramatic-looking plants that add a dash of color and energy. If you’ll be viewing your container from all sides, the thriller goes in the middle. If you view the container from the front, plant the thriller in the back.
- Fillers work to fill in the height gap between thrillers and spillers and have a thick and bushy appearance like Gerbera daisies. You can incorporate a single filler or two or three distinct plants into your container gardening design.
- Spillers are the low-growing plants that drape over the sides of your container such as English Ivy. Softening a hard edge with flowers, foliage, and soft colours completes the multi-plant arrangement formula.
Single plant arrangements
A single plant with a unique texture of foliage is enough to fill large rectangular plant pots .
Texture - Aloe Vera, Snake Plants, or Parlour Palms are recommended for indoor rectangular plant pots to add intrigue and style to your interior design.
Privacy - Ornamental grasses and evergreen shrubs are perfect to create privacy and space dividing solutions
Hedges - Hedges are useful to decorate gardens, hallways, and entrances. Long rectangular planters are the most popular and effective way to do this.
What are the best plants for rectangle planters?
It's possible to grow a wide variety of plants in rectangular outdoor planters in terms of the "thrillers-fillers-spillers" formula if they all share the same needs for sunlight and water. However the most popular plants are:
1. Snake Plant
Snake plants often have a variegated pattern resembling that of a snake's skin colour. It is common for the foliage to be long and straight, but there are also "bird's nest" varieties that produce squat rosettes of leaves. Planting multiple snake plant species in the same Jay Scotts long rectangle garden box will emphasize the beauty of these magical plants.
2. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is a member of the Aloe genus. Thick, greenish, fleshy leaves fan out from the central stem of the plant when it is stemless or very short-stemmed. The leaf's margin is toothed and serrated.
Succulents like the aloe vera plant are low-maintenance and attractive, making them excellent houseplants. The juice from the leaves of aloe vera plants can be used topically to relieve the pain of scrapes and burns. Freshen up any space with a few aloe vera plants in a Jay Scotts rectangular tabletop pot!
3. Parlour Palm
The Parlor Palm is a beautiful and easy-to-care-for indoor plant. Because of its slow growth rate and ability to thrive in low light and small spaces, growing a Parlour palm tree indoors in JayScott rectangle design pots is an excellent idea to purify the air around you and add a tropical flair to any decor.
