Things To Know Before Choosing Your Garden Planters

By November 5, 2018 September 8th, 2019 No Comments

There are many things you need to consider before selecting your garden pottery. From size to costs, here are the three key factors to consider before choosing your garden planters.

1. Drainage

Your outdoor pottery must have drainage holes in order to be an acceptable container for planting. Healthy plants need not just room to grow, but they also need to be able to stay moist while still releasing excess water.

2. Prosperity

Natural material planters will allow for moisture and air to move through them better than other unnatural materials. Materials that allow a plant to breathe, will provide air to the roots which are essential to your plants’ health and prosperity. The downside is that natural material planters will dry out your soil more quickly, so it is essential that you regularly water your plants.

3. Weight

Be careful not to choose a too heavy container. Remember, that once your soil gets watered, it will become exponentially heavier. This will make it much more difficult to move around, which is especially important if your planter is located on your balcony or deck. Lightweight materials are often a much better choice of planter and are much more versatile.
