The most important things to know to choose the right ones. Uses, models and technical characteristics of a functional and design garden accessory.


To furnish gardens and balconies there are many solutions that differ from each other both for the materials used and for the type of product proposed. If our goal is to find the right allocation of plants and at the same time furnish the outdoor environment in a functional way, enhancing spaces in an orderly, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing way, the planter is certainly the perfect solution.
Particularly used in outdoor environments of public places, outdoor terraces of hotels and restaurants, parks, avenues and bathing facilities, the planter is an extremely versatile and useful garden accessory, especially when it is completed with a grid panel. It is thanks to this composition, in fact, that the planter is able to perform further functions beyond that of a container of plants. The presence of the grid panel fixed to the vase, if it is true that in the first instance it has the purpose of allowing the climbing plants to go up again finding the right support for their growth, also acts as separates between one environment and another or between a space and the other. Because of this function, it is very often used as a dividing system, to create natural walls capable of separating different environments without the need to resort to the creation of fixed and invasive structures. The planters with grids, in fact, can also be equipped with wheels fixed to the base of the container that allow an easy movement and therefore the relocation in the space. In this way it is possible to meet different needs and occasionally give a different look to the environment in which the planters are placed.

Uses and models



The variety of models produced today by the companies allows in addition to these, various other uses of planters with grids. They also respond perfectly to a need for space economy. Corner planters, for example, allow you to take advantage of corners, large or small. They exist in different sizes and with a more or less high, arched, decorated, upright grid. Each solution is designed to take full advantage of the angle, avoiding the use of vases, jars or jars that are unsightly and uncomfortable. The corner solution allows, in fact, a stable anchoring of the planter and the grating to the wall and is a perfect piece of furniture for balconies and terraces where spaces are often limited and need to be managed with order. But the imagination of the manufacturing companies has also developed other furnishing solutions. Notwithstanding the function of the grating, which is that of a support surface for climbing plants and at the same time of separates, windbreaks or sunshades, the panel was also conceived as a design element capable of transforming the planter also into a decoration from the wall. The meshes of the gratings in fact, in addition to the classic rhombus texture, can be structured in such a way that the strips form imaginative and decorative images. From sunbeams, flowers, waves to other reasons that can also be chosen at will to create an exclusive and personalized product. Finally, the fact that the use of planter with grilled avoids the drilling of the floors which must necessarily be used for the installation of some types of grid panels. Indeed due to their stability they are often used for anchoring tents or gazebos.

Technical features


In addition to the functionality and the ability to furnish with style the external environments, the planters with grids also have a series of technical characteristics that make them resistant and suitable, more than other containers, to host the plants. First of all, the planter comes with an extractable inner vase, made of galvanized steel or PVC, which therefore allows cultivation also in hydroculture. The vase is then equipped with a placemat that prevents dripping and, in many cases, also with a level indicator and a water reserve system. They can be made using various types of materials. On the market, in fact, there are flower boxes with plastic, iron, stainless steel, stone, etc. grids. But the most used material is wood because it is better adapted to a natural environment. The most used is Nordic pine wood. Both the planter and the upper grating, when they are made of wood, are subjected to a particular chemical treatment: the "autoclave" treatment. The autoclave is an impregnating agent in which the wood is immersed and which gives resistance to mold, parasites and any other form of wear that the wood could suffer due to contact with water or other atmospheric agents. The wood, after the treatment, is also oiled, painted. It can be painted with a water-based impregnating agent and coated, in the inner part of the planter, with a tar sheath that acts as an insulator. The wood can also be lacquered or painted in different colors, customizable on request for any furnishing need. Moreover it can be worked taking care of the shape of the edges, the width and height of the panel, the decorative motifs of the mesh, etc.
