Lightweight and low-maintenance, these budget-friendly planters match the look and style of much more expensive options.

  1. For Any Weather

    From Plow & Hearth, the Sussex Resin Planter looks as if it were made of expensive copper. In truth, the material is a hardwearing, long-lasting composite that is impermeable to frost.

  2. Snicker at Wicker

    Wicker is a warm and inviting element that many love to use in outdoor living areas. Unfortunately it's neither sturdy nor weather-resistant. This planter is a dead ringer for wicker, but it's made of stronger stuff: hand-woven resin strands reinforced with a rust-proof, powder-coated aluminum frame.

  3. Terra "Notta"

    A staple among planters, terra cotta can be heavy and easily broken. The Terrazzo Round Planter mimics the look of earthenware, but in comparison to the real deal, the clay-color plastic is lighter and heartier.

  4. Un-faux-gettable

    The geometric-pattern embossing of the Mod Floral Black Bronze Planter imparts a subtle, sophisticated punch. While engineered to emulate antique bronze metal—pricey!—this 100% plastic planter can be had for only $10.

  5. Modern Sensibility

    The tapered contours of the Black Svelte Planter give it a clean, modern look. And while the matte black convincingly imitates slate, it's actually a weatherproof synthetic whose coloring won't fade due to sun exposure.

  6. Grain Domain

    Though equally well-suited for use outdoors, this Polivaz planter's nuanced faux wood grain complements a variety of popular indoor surfaces, including hardwood flooring and wood laminate furniture.

  7. High Expectations

    The design of this planter evokes beadboard, but the material is actually durable, easy-maintenance vinyl. Gardeners with achy knees or a sore back will appreciate that posts raise the height of the planting bed to waist level. 

  8. Classic Look, Modern Benefits

    This tall, Colonial-style planter harkens back to yesteryear, but that doesn't mean it's not equipped with some modern advantages. For instance, a liner inside holds several days' worth of water, which gradually and automatically seeps into the soil.

  9. Subdued and Seamless

    Featuring a subdued color and classic silhouette, this brushed stone-lookalike planter steals no attention from the flora you choose. Likewise, it's reasonable price tag probably won't prove a distraction, either.

  10. Glazed Over

    Though made of resin, the Threshold Cobalt Reactive Glaze Planter perfectly impersonates the baked coating of ceramic, and its deep tones and vibrant colors are sure to make a splash in any backyard.
