From cafe container gardens to eye-catching reception decor, modern office schemes to relaxing hotel roof-terraces — large fiberglass planters are an excellent choice for bringing lush greenery to your business. Made from interwoven sheets of spun glass fibers held together by a cohesive substance, typically resin, these pots come in a wide variety of styles, colors, and finishes. 

Plus, fiberglass lasts for many, many years, adding a contemporary look to both indoor and outdoor spaces and enhancing the beauty of any plant it holds. And that's just the tip of the iceberg! Read on to discover even more benefits, as well as handy tips on how to repair fiberglass planters and keep them looking their best.

1. Fiberglass Planters Can Withstand All Weather Conditions

The combination of flexible fibers and sturdy resin makes these containers outstandingly durable. Unlike other materials, such as terracotta or clay, fiberglass is rustproof, frost-resistant, and won't shatter or crack when knocked — ideal if you're planning to position them in high-traffic areas.

Also, as they don't warp, rot, corrode or lose color under bleaching UV rays, these planters can take on chilling frosts, seasonal thaws, sizzling heat, and any other extreme weather conditions without a fuss.

2. Fiberglass Planters Are Lightweight and Easy to Transport 

Maneuvering commercial planters made of stone and concrete involves using specialist equipment, and that's before you've added your soil, water, and plants. On the other hand, fiberglass's lightweight, even in larger dimensions, gives you the flexibility to move cold-sensitive foliage indoors and update your layout by repositioning your pots according to the latest trends.

3. Fiberglass Planters Are Available in a Wide Range of Designs and Finishes

If you're looking for show-stopping aesthetics, choose fiberglass planters. No matter if you want shiny and sleek or aged and rustic, due to its brilliant versatility, manufacturers can fashion it into any number of designs, including looks that mimic other materials. 

To start, try wide, round fiberglass planters in popping hues full of quirky succulents and tropical trees if you've got a young and vibrant space, or opt for tall, elegant vases with natural finishes flourishing with delicate grasses in a more sophisticated setting. The options truly are endless!

Invest in Quality Planters That Last

While they might not be as cheap to purchase as plastic and some other materials, fiberglass planters' superior durability means they don't need replacing anywhere near as often. These top-quality pots are an investment, lasting season after season, year after year, and saving you a fortune in the long run.

How to Repair Fiberglass Planters

Fiberglass planters also require very little maintenance, another massive benefit of this material. However, if your pots spend a lot of time exposed to the elements or sit close to the public, they'll undoubtedly require a spruce up every now and then. 

To remove persistent dirt and stains, avoid using harsh chemicals and stiff brushes as they might leave deep gashes on the planter's protective coating, ruining its aesthetic. Instead, simply wipe with a damp cloth soaked in a mild soap detergent. Don't panic if they do get dented or scratched, though, as you can easily refill marks with epoxy, painting the patch to match the surrounding color and keeping your fiberglass containers looking as good as new.
