Planters add visual interest to a patio without the need for major landscaping or construction projects. From single plant pots to larger box-style structures designed to hold multiple plants, selecting planters that complement both your overall patio style and the flowers or greenery that you plan on growing is key for choosing an effective planter arrangement.

Terracotta planters are a timeless classic and durable addition to outdoor spaces. Available in various sizes and colors, these classic beauties can be either glazed over or left natural for an earthier appeal. Ceramic planters provide another option with more of a modern feel.

Both types of planters come in an assortment of materials, from stone and clay to fiberglass and mixtures thereof. Planters made with materials like these provide a warm rustic vibe while fitting right in with nature; while composite planters consisting of clay and fiberglass allow you to keep its authentic appearance while remaining lightweight for frequent movement and accidental bumps.

Resin planters offer an attractive yet low-maintenance option for those who value plant art but lack the time or desire to care for more high maintenance planters. Resin is a lightweight yet durable material that mimics other natural materials like clay, granite or porcelain while remaining lightweight enough for easy transport when filled with soil and plants. Also less costly than concrete or metal planters when filled to capacity!

Maintaining your planters requires routine checks for weeds and removal, with compost or mulch laid two inches deep to help suppress them and promote healthy root development. In addition, be wary of erosion as this could prevent water entering into your planter or cause it to come to rest instead.

If you want a planter with more personality, consider a trellis-style design. Allow climbing roses or jasmine to wind around it for an eye-catching addition to your patio.
