THE CHOICE OF PLASTIC PLANTERS

MAIN FEATURES OF PLASTIC PLANTERS
If you love flowers and their cultivation in both indoor and outdoor environments, you will certainly be able to appreciate these practical and comfortable containers. But what are the main characteristics of plastic planters?
Examining them closely, we will notice that the lower part has a series of holes with variable diameters depending on the models and their volume. These holes will be very useful in the cultivation phase because they will allow a correct drainage of the water that you will use to water your flowers. In this way stagnation will be avoided, favoring the right oxygenation of the growing soil. Poor water drainage would in fact be harmful to your flowers since the roots need to be well ventilated to make your plants grow healthy and lush.
Still on the lower part, we could notice - in view or disguised as a plastic layer - a characteristic metal plate. The metal plate - generally made of galvanized and therefore stainless steel - has the function of structuring the plastic container making it solid and safe. The plate can also be washed with running water or with a common detergent, so it is convenient and practical at the same time.
One of the features that distinguishes plastic flower boxes is their lightness and ease of handling. To the touch you could in fact realize that the walls of the container have a sort of internal "air chamber" which favors the constant maintenance of an adequate level of temperature to the cultivation soil, thus avoiding fatal drying due to heating or helping to prevent the most dangerous winter and night frosts.
MAIN ADVANTAGES OF PLASTIC PLANTERS
Polyvinyl chloride (better known as PVC) has been specifically designed to have advantageous characteristics such as versatility (it is flexible and mouldable), high resistance to atmospheric agents and pollution and, above all, stability.
Plastic is an extremely versatile and widely used synthetic material. As already said, it is very resistant to all the wear possibly caused by atmospheric phenomena, and in this case this characteristic is particularly appreciated by those who want to prepare themselves in the relaxing practice of floriculture: light, resistant and lasting containers seem to be created to host soil and flowers in sunny, rainy, cold or icy environments.

Vases and planters: Plastic planters
Until recently, planters only served to contain flowers in the garden or on the balcony.
This is why they were usually made of polyethylene materials, hard plastic and usually brown in color.
Today, however, the market becomes demanding; the planter becomes not only the container for plants and flowers, but above all a piece of furniture that can also define the garden spaces.
And this is why, together with traditional materials, such as plastic, today the planter is also produced with lighter and innovative materials that can meet a need for contemporary furniture.
Among other things, more and more often planters are also used in domestic spaces and not only in the garden.
