Are Resin Planters Durable

Create fall planters that stand out
October 21, 2022
Cooler temperature means less watering and less plant maintenance. Take advantage of the fall season to design a unique container garden. Colors and textures are crucial in creating a striking fall container display. Adding edible plants like ornamental peppers, cabbage, and kale can add colors and textures to elevate the overall aesthetic. Selecting the appropriate material container is crucial in designing a fall and winter container garden. Although ceramic and terracotta can create a unique aesthetic, they will not survive in colder climates. The resin planters by TerraCast® Products are a reliable choice for colder climates because they are made to withstand harsh outdoor conditions.
What are Downspout Planters?
August 19, 2022
Downspout planters are decorative planters specially designed to absorb and filter stormwater before it enters stormwater management or sewer. They are typically installed along or at the end of the downspout to capture the water. They remove pollutants through filtration by plants while adding aesthetic appeal and providing habitat to wildlife. The best part of the downspout planter is that they do not require a lot of space, which is perfect for urban areas, where space is limited. TerraCast® Planters are ideal for filtering stormwater because they are not affected by water, whereas some material requires a waterproof liner inside the container to avoid rust, corrosion, or rot.

July 20, 2022

The best part of choosing LLDPE resin planters for outdoor applications is that they are highly durable and maintenance-free. Resin can mimic the look of other materials and achieve different styles from traditional to modern.

The Perfect Planters for Winter
December 31, 2021
Winter is just around the corner. With it comes wanting to spruce up your space by gardening. Container gardening is a favorite for urban and suburban homeowners as well as business owners. Container gardening is not only a way to grow your vegetables, flowers, and herbs but also because they create an attractive outdoor space. Planters come in a wide variety of materials, some cheap, and others are costly. Here are a few perfect planters for winter to choose from, so your garden or patio will not only be successful but look beautiful as well.
Recycled Planters, Light Poles, and Bases
November 29, 2021
TerraCast® planters, PolySteel™ light poles, and light pole base covers are all manufactured using #4 linear-low density polyethylene (LLDPE) with up to 100% post-consumer recycled content. As we like to say, "our black is green," the standard black color we use contains a minimum of 90% post-consumer recycled content. In addition, the manufacturing process we use for these products, rotational molding (rotomolding), has an environmental advantage because it produces no scrap as all the materials can be 100% recycled.
Privacy Element in Outdoor Spaces
October 15, 2021
The privacy element is crucial in creating a comfortable outdoor space. Installing a fence or wall can be costly, but you can create privacy screens using plants and planters. Plants make excellent privacy screens because they can block noise and unsightly views while adding color, texture, and seasonal interest that only gets better each growing season. Large containers are ideal for creating privacy in a small space like a deck or patio. TerraCast® planters are made from a lightweight resin material, which makes the installation effortless and movable. The wide range of styles can fit any landscape style you desire!
Lightweight planter solution for rooftop gardens
September 15, 2021
Green roofs and rooftop gardens have been some of the most popular garden trends in the last few years, not only from their aesthetic advantage but also from their environmental benefits. While green roofs directly plant vegetation on the rooftop over a waterproof membrane, rooftop gardens plant in a container instead. Rooftop gardens have various advantages, such as maximizing underused space, extending living space, providing habitat for wildlife, reducing the urban heat island effect, and improving air quality. Although green roofs are more effective in insulation and reducing water runoff, using containers is the most economical and flexible option. TerraCast® planters are lightweight, which means maximum flexibility in your design while consuming less energy in transit and installation.
Find the perfect planter styles for Summer Landscaping
July 30, 2021
Is your outdoor space ready for the summer? Container gardening can add a pop of color to refresh your outdoor space, creating privacy and shade for maximum comfortability. However, the harsh summer weather like heat, wind, and drought can take a toll on your container gardens if they are not cared for properly. TerraCast® offers maintenance-free solutions to your beautification projects!
Get ready for spring with resin planters
March 19, 2021
As you get ready to replant spring flowers in your containers, it is a good idea to inspect your planters. Are there any cracks or breakages? Temperature fluctuations and snow melts can have a significant impact on your containers, depending on the material. When you need to replace damaged planters, consider TerraCast® resin-based planters to minimize your future costs on replacements. One of the many benefits LLDPE resin material offers is its flexible property; it resists cracks and breakages caused by temperature fluctuations.
Weather Resistant Planters
February 22, 2021
Outdoor planters should be able to withstand the UV rays of the sun and other outdoor elements. Still, most landscaping products are not made to withstand the wear and tear provoked by nature and the general public. It doesn't take long for standard planters to start fading if left in the sun day after day. TerraCast® resin planters are treated with a UV inhibitor, which means they will not need painting or refinishing because they will not fade, chip, or peel.
