Being lightweight means a lot more than cheaper shipping. It's a total game changer - no more heavy equipment, easier handling and installation, no damage, ease of relocation, and less headaches.

Benefits of Lightweight


Shipping Our resin planters are significantly lighter in weight compared to stone or clay products. So your shipping cost will be lower compared to other materials.


Handling Heavy products are harder to handle. There are higher chances for them to arrive with cracks or damages. But thankfully, our resin planters are easy to handle and are virtually indestructible, there are slim to no possibilities that our products will arrive with damages.


Installation We understand the pain of bringing heavy equipment into to install them, which is why being lightweight is a game changer. TerraCast® planters can be picked up by two people to install them!


Higher If you're considering to install the planters on rooftops, every pound matters. If the planters are too heavy, they may limit you on the quantity you initially wanted to install. Not to mention the difficulties you may face in order to bring those planters all the way to the rooftop. With TerraCast® planters, it will be just as simple as hand carrying them and moving them to the desired location. No cranes necessary.
