How large modern planters do one need?

Consider the full-grown size of the plant when choosing the flower pot size. You don’t want to buy unique planters that are too small and will need to be replaced as the tree or shrub grows. Second, measure the size of the root ball. The plant’s roots will need room to spread out, so make sure you choose modern planters large enough to accommodate them. About 3 times larger vintage planters than root ball is a good rule of thumb.


What are the advantages of large modern planters in Corten?

Corten is a durable material that is also maintenance-free. You get frost-resistant winter planters that achieves a beautiful deep red-brown color from its copper when exposed to outdoor environments. Changing weather transform the surface of porch planters from the usual color of steel to over time achieving a thin protective reddish-brown rust layer.

The protective patina prevents the steel from corroding on your modern planters, requires no painting and does not damage the strength of the steel. The steel’s thickness of 3-4 mm gives weight and creates a stable, durable vintage planters in any fancy garden.
