Easy to Move
A major win with large lightweight planters is that they are just that, lightweight. This means that they will be able to move and style as time goes on. No more worrying about lifting a heavy pot when you are sweeping or cleaning up.
To elaborate more here’s an example of the weight difference between the two types of pots. On average a tall ceramic pot can weigh anywhere from twenty to fifty pounds depending on its width and height. Whereas a lightweight option can typically weigh anywhere from three to fifteen pounds.
It’s important to note that these weights are just the weight of the pots themselves. So, once you factor in the weights of the plant itself, soil, decorative rocks, soil filler, and water the pot will be even heavier. All of these factors can add another five pounds or so to the final weight. Proving the lighter options to be ideal for anyone as they are easier to maneuver around.
As if large lightweight planters did not have enough perks, they are also long lasting and durable. The materials used, either fiberglass or resin in most cases, tend to be less porous allowing the pots to hold up better over time. They can be used indoors or outdoors, truly making them an all-purpose planter for your tall plants.
They are easy to clean and require little to no maintenance. While being able to withstand different seasons and the weather that they bring along.
