Get ready for spring with resin planters

Get ready for spring with resin planters

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.

Modern Commercial Planters

Bob Grossman, our founder, used to enjoy scouting out new spots for placement of TerraCast® products. Wherever you go, you’ll see planters.

Nearly every commercial building you visit today has some sort of accent pottery by the entrance along the surrounding landscape and in the lobby. Sometimes a pair of planters stand guard on either side of the entrance. Sometimes the lobby has huge planters sporting the logo or insignia of the company. Sometimes there’s a smoking area or courtyard, dotted with large planters growing large plants or small trees.

Modern Resin planters are the optimal choice for indoor or outdoor applications and TerraCast® is the optimal provider of high-quality resin products.


The Material

Our resin is made from a Linear Low Density Polyethylene, which is a member of the plastic family, formulated to be durable and maintenance free. Our products are made of up to 100% post-consumer recycled material and resin is non-porous, so nothing gets through it and nothing sticks to it. We even blend a UV inhibitor right into the resin. It’s designed for long lasting durability and strength.

The Colors

We offer many solid colors and several faux-stone options. The granite blends are created using a slightly translucent base color, with multi-colored speculates blended in. They create vibrant variations and depth; just like natural stone and all of our color blends are totally customizable. If you don’t see exactly what you want, we can match or design your own solid color or stone blend.

Save Money

Our Planters are less expensive to manufacture than any other material, so the purchase price is lower. Additionally, Resin is lightweight, so the shipping costs are considerably less. Our lightweight resin planters can be moved, loaded and unloaded by hand, which eliminates any need for forklifts or heavy machinery. This precludes any additional handling costs or fees. They last longer than products made from other materials, so more time goes by between replacements, and resin products require no maintenance, so there’s savings in the ownership over time as well.

  • Lower manufacturing costs = smaller price tag up-front
  • Lightweight = low shipping costs
  • NO special handling = no handling fees
  • Lasts a Lifetime = no $ replacing
  • Maintenance Free = no $ maintaining

Save Time

We offer an additional insert for our planters that make them self-watering. It’s a reservoir insert with a water-wicking system that fits onto the bottom of the planter. Once the soil is poured in and the plants are situated, you’ll never see it again. The plants are able to draw moisture up from the reservoir, effectively watering them, saving you time and money on maintenance and gardeners.

The Products

We have 4 product lines and hundreds of items to choose from. You could have perfect matching pieces for your lobby and courtyard. We can even design a custom mold so each piece is stamped with your company’s logo, insignia, or some other unique decoration.

Save the Planet
