Taking care of home environments, both internal and external, represents an action that every person should perform if he wants to live in a tidy house that is tastefully furnished; outdoor environments are the first thing that catches the eye of the guests and therefore they must be treated in detail. In this regard it is possible to install outdoor planters, which in addition to being very functional, are also very decorative and represent a useful furnishing element to enhance the aesthetic aspect of the home.


Outdoor planters are an accessory that can contain a greater number of plants and are available in different models, depending on needs and personnel; Grid planters are widely used, which are mainly used in the presence of climbing plants that can grow along the grid of the planter, or are also used as artificial screens in public places. Another widely used model is that of hanging planters, suitable for containing small or medium-sized plants, since they are hung by a thin chain that does not disturb the aesthetic appearance of the house but fully enhances it; finally, there are planters for classical exteriors, that is those that are placed in public places as an ornament and have a typical rectangular shape. There are also many materials used for the construction of outdoor planters, from cement, to wood, to PVC, to natural fibers, to terracotta.


One of the most widely used materials for building outdoor planters is cement, which is appreciated above all for its high resistance to atmospheric agents and impacts; cement is mostly used for outdoor planters that are installed in public places, since the natural coloring of the cement allows it to adapt to any type of environment and situation. Furthermore, the cement also offers the possibility of being covered with various types of materials, to become even more elegant and valuable.


Wood also represents an excellent alternative for the construction of outdoor planters, since it is endowed with a unique elegance that the other materials do not possess and allows it to fit into any environment, adapting to the furnishings and architectural style of a any property. Wood for outdoor planters is configured as an eco-sustainable material, since at the end of its life cycle it can be biologically disposed of without causing damage to the environment; the elegance of wood can be enhanced by the insertion of inlays and decorative motifs of various kinds, which would make outdoor flower boxes even more noticeable. The wood that is used for outdoor flower boxes is usually solid, that is the wood that is taken directly from the tree trunks, to give greater resistance and durability over time; to show off its beauty to the full, this material needs constant maintenance.


Another material that is used for the construction of outdoor planters is PVC, a recently discovered material, but which has been very successful in the window and door furniture market; its most appreciated quality is its high resistance to atmospheric agents and temperature changes, in fact it manages to keep its appearance intact for the entire duration of its use. PVC is an insulating material and allows the soil of plants to maintain the same temperature even in the case of strong temperature changes, guaranteeing good health for plants and flowers; although it is a petroleum derivative, PVC does not pollute, since it can be recycled in all its parts and reused to create new objects. The maintenance of this material is almost nil, in fact it can also be cleaned only with the help of a damp cloth.


Even natural fibers are widely used to build outdoor planters, especially for hanging planters, suitable for small plants; these fibers breathe independently and regenerate on contact with the air and, furthermore, are not harmful to the environment, because they are disposed of naturally without damaging the environment. Above all, the outdoor planters in natural fibers do not require high maintenance.


Terracotta is the most used material to build outdoor planters, since being composed of natural matter is not perceived as a foreign component by the plant and the ground; the reddish color of terracotta allows outdoor flower boxes to adapt to any type of architectural style and decor. The porosity of the terracotta allows the absorption of any excess water and preserves the health of the plant.
