7 Top Outdoor Living Companies in the US

Posted by Jason Wyrwicz on Jul 8th 2022

Isn’t it great when they do it for you?

Show up to the ol’ Golden Corral and behold 4 aisles of food-you-didn’t-have-to-make, ready for the taking.

It’s everything in one place, choices galore, and you get pizza plus a steakburger.

Same idea applies to shopping for clothes: just tell the stylist (is that what they’re called?) “just give me what the mannequin’s wearing.”

Why complicate things?

That’s how we roll here at Pots, Planters & More.

All you have to do is show up and enjoy a pre-selected roundup of outdoor living resources, learn, grab ideas left and right like you’re digging from a basket of unlimited yeast rolls, and go back to work smarter and more stylish.

All without consuming 8,000 calories in a single sitting.

I’m probably stretching this analogy out a bit too long so let’s get to the point.

Following these 7 top outdoor living companies will make YOU smarter and more stylish.

1. Veranda

Like it fancy? Then you’ll like this outdoor living leader.

Whether you’re looking to bring the elegant charm of traditional home architecture to your commercial space, or trying to touch up a tired restaurant patio, Veranda is a great resource. Get inspiration from their lush patio layouts, furniture choices, and commentary about what makes their selections unique and inviting. Take in some of their tips on the gardening page, too.

Pro tip: complement that luxurious patio with a durable outdoor planter.

2. Outer

Stylish patio furniture, sofas, sectionals, fire pits, tables, rugs – you name it. Outer’s creative touches deliver a look that’s modern, hip, and functional. Not to mention they focus on sustainability, so you can feel good about investing in furniture that was crafted with environmental concerns in mind.

The Outer Blog features sections on their products, tips, how tos, and you can get some inspiration for building a better outdoor experience for your business.


Yep, like HOLLYWOOD, but POLLYWOOD. Made in the USA, POLLYWOOD was “the first to create outdoor furniture from recycled plastic materials.” Their materials are super durable, don’t require painting, and include classic cuts like the “Vineyard” collection, or you can choose selections that match more modern, contemporary vibes like “EDGE” and “Riviera.”

No matter what look you’re going for, you’re sure to find something that piques your interest or helps you think outside the box when designing a welcoming outdoor space.

Check out their outdoor planning tools for help with design and layouts, and get inspired with project notes and stories about the POLLYWOOD community.

4. Architectural Digest

Architectural Digest’s outdoor living section might be just what you’re looking for. It offers a great mix of inspirational content that can get your gears turning as well as a collection of more down-to-earth recommendations and photos of cool spaces. Sidenote: even though something might look like it was intended for home patios and pool areas, it doesn’t mean you can’t adapt that style for an office or restaurant space. For example, these 68 Outdoor Patio Ideas contain approximately 1,068 ideas you could use for a commercial setting.

5. Better Homes and Gardens

We’ve spent a good deal of time on the furniture and design elements for outdoor living spaces. What about the plants? Glad you asked.

Better Homes and Gardens is an historic publication, and their dedicated garden section is packed with information about container gardens, maintenance, landscaping, and more.

Pro tip: Wouldn’t it be cool to grow a Meyer Lemon tree in your office? Sure would help if you could match it with an incredible, functional planter, too.


Probably one of the most quintessential outdoor brands, HGTV is known for a plethora of shows and articles touting the joys of outdoor living and entertaining.

Outdoor living is usually creative living, so if you’re looking to liven things up with color and design, it helps to peruse their resources for tips on gardens, landscaping, outdoor spaces, and curb appeal.

I’m still waiting for Guy Fieri to come out with an outdoor version of DDD: Patios, Porches, and Pools? Just sayin.

7. Pots, Planters & More

Had to throw this one in. How else can you have a complete outdoor living space? Pots, Planters & More offers a premier lineup of, you guessed it, stylish and durable planters for any outdoor space you can think of.
