Whether you're an avid plant lover or a plant-growing newbie, you probably have a perfect spot for a pot or planter of some sort. Luckily, you don't need a wealth of gardening experience to successfully use pots and planters in your yard.

Types of Pots and Planters

Types of Pots and Planters

What patio doesn't look better with a cluster of containers dressing up a corner? How about a picnic table accented with a row of miniature pots down the center? Or a raised-bed corner dressed up with an oversize pot or planter? Pots and planters are essential elements of nearly every type of landscape, for plant lovers as well as outdoor aficionados. And there are various types of pots and planters available to accent architecture, enhance garden design, or dress up outdoor living spaces. Consider living wall, window box/deck rail, hanging, freestanding, patio, cascade, or plant-specific/novelty as you review your choices.

Living Wall

One of the newer pot and planter types to hit the market, living-wall planters attach to a vertical space and provide a growing medium for flowers, foliage, and vegetables -- great as a focal point or for space-challenged homes.

Generous planting depth. 15-step construction process. Design works in classic or contemporary outdoor settings. Raised latticework and a generous border twist give the Campania International Woven Cast Stone Window Box Planter its classic charm. This planter is bold yet traditional and crafted of cast stone using a 15-step process. It will withstand the elements beautifully. Choose from a wide variety of finish options. Campania Cast Stone: The ProcessThe creation of Campania's cast stone pieces begins and ends by hand. From the creation of an original design, making of a mold, pouring the cast stone, application of the patina to the final packing of an order, the process is both technical and artistic. As many as 30 pairs of hands are involved in the creation of each Campania piece in a labor intensive 15 step process.The process begins either with the creation of an original copyrighted design by Campania's artisans or an antique original. Antique originals will often require some restoration work, which is also done in-house by expert craftsmen. Campania's mold making department will then begin a multi-step process to create a production mold which will properly replicate the detail and texture of the original piece. Depending on its size and complexity, a mold can take as long as three months to complete. Campania creates in excess of 700 molds per year.After a mold is completed, it is moved to the production area where a team individually hand pours the liquid cast stone mixture into the mold and employs special techniques to remove air bubbles. Campania carefully monitors the PSI of every piece. PSI (pounds per square inch) measures the strength of every piece to ensure durability. The PSI of Campania pieces is currently engineered at approximately 7500 for optimum strength. Each piece is air-dried and then de-molded by hand. After an internal quality check, pieces are sent to a finishing department where seams are ground and any air holes caused by the pouring process are filled and smoothed. Pieces are then placed on a pallet for stocking in the warehouse.All Campania pieces are produced and stocked in natural cast stone. When a customer's order is placed, pieces are pulled and unless a piece is requested in natural cast stone, it is finished in a unique patinas. All patinas are applied by hand in a multi-step process; some patinas require three separate color applications. A finisher's skill in applying the patina and wiping away any excess to highlight detail requires not only technical skill, but also true artistic sensibility. Every Campania piece becomes a unique and original work of garden art as a result.After the patina is dry, the piece is then quality inspected. All pieces of a customer's order are batched and checked for completeness. A two-person packing team will then pack the order by hand into gaylord boxes on pallets. The packing material used is excelsior, a natural wood product that has no chemical additives and may be recycled as display material, repacking customer orders, mulch, or even bedding for animals. This exhaustive process ensures that Campania will remain a popular and beloved choice when it comes to garden decor.About Campania InternationalEstablished in 1984, Campania International's reputation has been built on quality original products and service.

Product Features

Product Features

All pots and planters are designed to do the same thing -- grow flowers, vegetables, herbs, or other plants -- but there are product features that can make one type more or less appealing to you. For example, different materials have different pros and cons related to how well plants grow and how well the pot or planter enhances your outdoor spot. In addition, liners, trays, or self-watering pots or planters may be good features to consider before making an investment. Use this short guide to help you along on your shopping journey.


Pots and planters can be made from a variety of materials, such as common terra-cotta, plastic, metal, or concrete. Each has a different weight and porosity that may affect its location and the plant choices it can hold.


Particularly for those containers that are repurposed or less durable, liners can sit in pots and planters to protect them from leaking water.


A tray or base prevents water from escaping through the pot or planter's bottom hole; it can be made of the same material or an accent material.


Some of the newer pots and planters have self-watering elements that enable them to go longer stretches without supplemental watering.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Not all pots and planters are the same -- and their prices reflect that. The product features that are most important to you make the biggest impact on the price of a pot or planter. For example, a large plastic container probably is much more affordable than a large terra-cotta version. But after you've sorted through all the types and product features, consider just a few more purchase considerations before making a final choice. Those include surface protection and size/filled weight. Here's a very quick review.

Surface Protection

Trays or bases can help, but it's best to elevate your pots and planters that sit on the floor of a deck or patio.

Size/Filled Weight

The larger the container, the more difficult it is to move, but you'll be able to grow plants such as shrubs and larger annuals.
