Modern Outdoor Flower Pots and Planters
Looking to take your garden to the next level with a little modern style? It isn’t especially hard to do. One of the best ways to go modern is through the use of unique pots and planters. You want to go for somewhat minimal looks or looks that are striking to the eye.
Here are a few options you may want to consider, each with different aspects to really enhance your outdoor space and turn it into the modern meditative mecca you desire.
Box Hill Large Square Planter
One of the more obvious aspects of modern design is the concept of smooth lines. You don’t really want anything with jagged edges because then you’re getting into industrial. With the Box Hill Large Square Planter, you’re getting a beautiful set of mid-century modern planters. The color is dark but warm, and the smooth edges of the tall pots give a feeling of flow and movement. It is constructed with Zinc-coated Steel which is known to prevent steel or iron from rusting in addition to the design detail. To avoid a completely homogenous look, circular knobs are placed on the base; just a little something to draw the eye. Since the set comes with two pots, you can either place them all in one spot or spread them around your outdoor space, helping each area feel connected with this focal point.

Faccia Contemporary Garden Planter
Want to put a new face on your back patio? If so, these pots make a real statement. (I’m full of puns today.) On a more serious note, these pots really work to grab some attention. This is one of our top-selling modern planters, almost harkening back to the ’80s and the days of Lipps Inc. You’d think that would make it retro, but those styles are coming back, and it’s still pretty modern, in general. Not only do they feature the smooth lines of modern styles, but the unique design aspect is also almost futuristic. Functionally, the size of these pots is also quite good. A couple of the biggest containers at 22 inches wide, or even the medium ones at 16 inches, would make for good large outdoor flower pots. The depth allows for great water seepage to make sure your plants can live long lives. There are a couple of different color options and it’s good to keep in mind that, over time, they will weather and begin to become even more unique. And the smaller one is great to help bring your plants inside. If these are kissing the creative parts of your brain, click here to learn more.
Sarinac Garden Planter
One thing which sort of screams modern is size. If you’ve got extra large plant pots, you can have some nice, striking plants which will draw plenty of attention. Combine that with a bit of minimalism and you’re looking at something sure to turn heads. The 25-inch pot can hold small shrubs, young trees, or groups of flowers. I could see this being especially impressive with multiple types of flowers in varying colors. While this pot is available in multiple colors, each of those colors would stand up well to the brightness of flowers. Perhaps some red and blue flowers with some nice grasses would really make this pop. Apart from the size, the smooth face and rounded edges truly bring some class and modern style to the table.

Alegre Planter in Indigo Rain
I really like pieces that are unique, and such is the case with the Alegre Planter in Indigo Rain. Its design saves floor space while giving life to a wall that might otherwise be a bit drab. The fiber cement used for the shape has a great color of Indigo Rain and smoothness which speaks to a modern element. Additionally, the material used is lighter than your standard sort of cement, so moving it around shouldn’t be all that bad. While it would look nice with greens in it, I think flowers would be an incredible option for this planter. You could even add some functionality to it by using it as a herb garden. In doing so, you make it useful as well as lovely. If the height is something you need in your life, learn more about this here.
M Weave Garden Bench
This planter sort of takes it in the opposite direction, to some extent. What good is a bench you can’t sit on? Though, I suppose when it comes to the M Weave Garden Bench, the answer to that depends on where you want to place it. The style, though, is interesting. In a way, its the most perfect wonderful addition to any garden settings that features interlocking curves with a bold woven pattern inspired by basket weave designs in the supporting base making a stylish touch. This unique design, like something you might see when nature has begun to once again creep into the modern world. It reminds me of a home that has been abandoned but still retains an inviting beauty to it in its peacefulness. It will make a bold statement and bring something interesting to your outdoor space.

Going modern doesn’t have to be difficult. You can also match them with a modern water fountain and transform your backyard into an oasis. These planters would compliment any type of Buddha Art as well to enhance the Zen in your space. There are many options out there to achieve your goal. The nice thing about the “modern” style is that it isn’t necessarily anything specific. As seen in these examples, you can go with curves or straight lines, but minimalism is key. You don’t want extravagant designs or anything which might detract from the beauty which you can find within the planter. Embracing nature is a modern concept derived from an ancient love of life.
