Plant pots outdoor: High quality plant pots for outdoor
As soon as the first summer sunrays warm the air, life shifts to the outdoors. The domestic indoor living room becomes an outdoor living room. And the commercial catering trade also opens its garden gates again.
Of course it should be just as cosy and comfortable outside as it is inside. With plant pots suitable for outdoor use, the garden area can be transformed into a green, comfortable oasis without much effort.
What are planters for outside?
Outdoor plant pots contain flowers and plants, which must also be suitable for outdoor use. An outdoor planter can be a smaller, weatherproof planter, a simple outdoor planter box or a large, exclusive outdoor planter.
No matter what size or type of material you choose. You will only enjoy your green living room if both the flowers and plants and the plant pot are weatherproof and resistant to other external influences.
Let us inspire you when you choose your planters in the fleur ami online shop. A wide range of decorative planters awaits you. There you will find planters in many shapes, colours and made of different materials.
In the production of the planters fleur ami uses consistently high-quality material suitable for outdoor use. The stylish planters are therefore not only optical highlights. The planters are also winterproof, UV-resistant, robust and durable.
Accessories are also being considered by fleur ami. Particularly practical is the watering set on offer, which includes a shelf, plant substrate, water level indicator and a filling shaft with lid.
Which planters for the terrace?
Especially when terraced houses are close together, you need a privacy screen to protect you from unwanted glances from the neighbours. Evergreen hedges are very beautiful, but not ideal. 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 according to your needs.
Furthermore, you can use higher planters as outdoor room 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. Outdoor planters with wheels are particularly practical. The planters are easy to move back and forth and you can give your terrace a different touch every now and then.
A larger plant pot, which can be placed on the terrace, is also very suitable. Position it so that it becomes an attractive eye-catcher.
Outdoor planters as privacy protection
Rectangular, elongated planters standing next to each other form a perfect privacy screen to the neighbouring property. Even with several planting columns standing next to each other like trellises, you can avoid curious looks from the neighbours.
Or you can plant lower, compact planters with hedges or climbing plants. This also gives you a perfect and at the same time flexible and easy to move privacy protection.
How do I plant high flower pots?
If the plant pot is high (outdoor), the planting should not be raised additionally. A lower, compact planting or a combination of plants of different heights is better. Single, hanging climbing plants are also very decorative.
When to put out plant pots?
As a rule, planters are frost-resistant. Your planters could therefore be left outside in winter. Unfortunately, this does not apply to all potted plants.
If you have stored your potted plants in your winter quarters, you should put them out in early spring. However, this assumes that the temperatures are in the plus range and frost is no longer to be expected.
Which materials are suitable for outdoor planters?
An increasingly popular material for outdoor planters is a fibreglass material mix. Teak is also very popular, as the warm brown tone sets 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 flour and synthetic resin.
Plastic - partly glass-fibre reinforced - is also ideally suited for outdoor planters. Unbreakable, frost and weather resistant are also planters made of polypropylene.
Different materials for outdoor planters
Outdoor plant pots are also offered in a material mix. Very popular is the combination of teak and stainless steel. The stainless steel forms a successful, noble contrast to the teak wood.
Not optically visible is the combination of glass fibre composite material as the basis and a high-quality gelcoat coating. This technique is known from shipbuilding. Planters made of this material are still waterproof even after years.
Which planters are frost-proof?
Most materials are frost resistant nowadays. This applies for example to planters made of concrete, stainless steel, polyrattan and teak. Planters made of fibreglass are also weatherproof and frost-resistant - provided the material does not contain any rock admixture.
Planter Outdoor Wood
If you prefer wood as material for planters, you should choose teak. This type of wood, also used for shipbuilding, is weather-resistant and relatively easy to maintain.
fleur ami offers teak planters in natural brown and in a grey vintage look. With these planters you can create a particularly homely atmosphere outdoors.
Planters for the entrance area
The entrance area is the calling card of the house. The first impression is decisive. A pretty plant pot has an inviting effect. Whether it is a square or round plant pot, which is located to the left or right of the front door. Or whether it is two planting columns positioned to the right and left of the front door is not decisive.
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 weatherproof material so that it can stand outside all year round.
Planters for hotels, restaurants & public areas
Hotel is not hotel and restaurant is not restaurant. For this reason, no generally binding statement can be made as to which planters are particularly suitable for the outdoor areas of hotels and restaurants.
It is crucial that the style of the interior is reflected in the outdoor area. In any case, the planter should be an inviting eye-catcher that fits harmoniously into the overall concept.
Planters in 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 elegant.
Popular are, for example, larger, round planting bowls or tall planting columns standing right and left in front of the entrance. But also square or round plant pots look good together with a harmonious planting.
fleur ami has a very special eye-catcher for all entrance areas in hotels and restaurants. The word "Welcome" has been carved out of the body of a cream-coloured, vase-like polystone planter in various languages. A planter could hardly be more inviting.
