Outdoor planters: High-quality outdoor planters
Outdoor planters house flowers and plants that also need to be suitable for outdoor use. An outdoor planter can be a smaller, weatherproof planter, a simple outdoor planter or a large, exclusive outdoor planter.
Whatever size and material you choose. You will only enjoy your green living room if the flowers and plants as well as the planter are weatherproof and insensitive to other outdoor influences.
Let the planter be your own.
Let yourself be inspired when choosing your planters in the fleur ami online shop. A wide range of decorative planters awaits you. You will find planters in many shapes, colours and made of different materials.

Creative design with outdoor planters
Particularly when terraced houses are close together, you need a visual screen to protect you from unwanted glances from neighbours. Evergreen hedges are very beautiful, but not ideal. This is because the hedge can easily become too bulky and take up a lot of space. Better suited are taller, rectangular planters, which you can plant flexibly as you wish and as needed.
Furthermore, you can use taller planters as space dividers. This gives your terrace structure.
With the help of planters of different sizes and shapes, you can also turn your terrace into a green paradise in no time at all. Particularly practical are outdoor planters with wheels. The planters can be easily moved back and forth and you can give your terrace a different touch every now and then.
An solo, larger room divider also looks very good on the terrace. Position it so that it becomes an attractive eye-catcher
Outdoor planters as privacy screens
Rectangular, elongated, side-by-side planters form a perfect privacy screen from the neighbouring property. You can also avoid prying eyes from the neighbours with several, trellis-like planting columns standing next to each other.
Or you can plant low, compact planters with hedging or climbing plants. In this way you also get a perfect and at the same time flexible and easily relocatable privacy screen.
How do I plant high flower pots?
If a tall planter is used, the planting should not go up even higher. Better are lower, compact plantings or a combination of plants of different heights. Single, hanging climbing plants are also very decorative.
Are planters weatherproof?
As a rule, planters are frost-resistant. Your planters could therefore remain outside even in winter. Unfortunately, this does not apply to all potted plants.
If you have stored your potted plants in their winter quarters, you should put them out in early spring. However, this presupposes that the temperatures are in the plus range and frost is no longer to be expected.
Outdoor planter materials: from fibreglass to polystone
An increasingly popular material for outdoor planters is a fibreglass material mix. Teakwood is also very popular, as the warm brown shade adds homely accents.
Modern planters in concrete look are also particularly stylish. These are made of glass-fibre reinforced natural cement
Polystone is also frequently used as a material. This is a synthetic stone based on stone powder and synthetic resin
Plastic - partly glass-fibre reinforced - is also ideal for outdoor planters. Plant pots made of polypropylene are also unbreakable and resistant to frost and weathering.
Plant pots made of polypropylene are also suitable for outdoor use.
Material mix: Successful combinations
Outdoor planters are also available in a material mix. The combination of teak and stainless steel is very popular. The stainless steel forms a successful, elegant contrast to the teak wood.
Not visibly visible.
Not visually visible is the combination of fibreglass composite as a base and a high-quality gelcoat coating. This technique is known from shipbuilding. Planters made of this material are still impermeable to water even after years.
Which planters for the winter?
Most materials are frost-resistant nowadays. This applies, for example, to planters made of concrete, stainless steel, polyrattan and teak. Planters made of fibreglass or fibreglass(GRP) are also weatherproof and frost-resistant - as long as the material does not contain any other admixtures.
Wooden outdoor planters
Whoever prefers wood as a material for planters should choose teak. This type of wood, which is also used for shipbuilding, is weather-resistant and relatively easy to care for.
fleur ami offers teak planters in natural brown and in a grey vintage look. With these planters, you can create a particularly homely atmosphere in the outdoor area.
Plants for the entrance area
The entrance area is the visiting card of the house. The first impression is crucial. A pretty planter has an inviting effect. Whether that is a square or round planter located to the left or right of the front door. Or whether it is two planters positioned to the right and left of the front door is not important.
It is more important that the planter and the planting match the style of the house and are not oversized. In addition, the planter should be made of weather-resistant material so that it can stand outside all year round.
Plants for hotels, restaurants & Co
Hotel is not hotel and restaurant is not restaurant. For this reason, no generally binding statement can be made about which planters are particularly suitable for the outdoor areas of hotels and restaurants.
The decisive factor is that the style of the indoor area is reflected in the outdoor area. The planter should definitely be an inviting eye-catcher that blends in harmoniously with the overall concept.
Planters with a concrete look are particularly stylish. Planters (outdoor) in white look very elegant. If it matches the style of the house, planters made of teak in combination with stainless steel look extremely noble.
Planters made of teak in combination with stainless steel look extremely noble.
Popular are for example larger, round planters or tall planters standing to the right and left in front of the entrance. But square or round planters also cut a good figure together with a harmonious planting.
A very special eye-catcher is available from fleur ami for all entrance areas in hotels and restaurants. The word "Welcome" is carved out of the body of a cream-coloured, vase-like planter made of polystone in various languages. A planter can hardly be more inviting.
