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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
