Not only do large flower pots hold plants, but they can also be used for decorative and functional purposes in garden design. They can be used to decorate landscapes and as space dividers.
They are essential not only for homeowners but also for interior designers, landscapers, and business owners because they can be used in many other situations than the typical container garden.
You can grow many plants at home using large pots. You can also use them in a commercial setting to optimize spaces and create guides that stimulate guests by gently bringing them into your office or retail space. They are versatile.
This post will give you 3 ideas for large flower containers for your home and 3 for commercial properties. We’ll also explain why large pots are essential for all your gardening projects.
These garden ideas will help you grow edible plants in your container gardening
Pots large enough to grow many plants from herbs and fruits, as well as vegetables, are a great choice. Although they’re the most popular choice for growing edibles (as shown above), they don’t offer the best space-saving options.
We recommend a large rectangular-shaped pot such as the Antwerp Wide Rectangular Pot or Selenge Extra Wide Rectangular Pot. This will allow you to place your edibles in neat rows, from the back to the front of the container.
This method is great for saving money on container purchases and also saves time on maintaining your plants. This layout makes it easy to water all your plants in one motion.
All of our planters made from high-quality fiberglass are lightweight. The planter can be moved around the garden much faster than it would take to move small pots. This is especially useful for plants that need protection during winter and extreme weather conditions.
Ideas for front door landscaping with container gardens
The front of a house is just as important as a good book cover. It is the first thing that you see when you enter the house and it will be the first thing your guests see when they arrive.
You will feel more relaxed if you arrive home to an entryway full of beautiful flowers and colorful plants.
Plant without flowers
You may not be able to grow your favorite flowers and other annuals if you live in extremely hot areas. Choose drought-tolerant plants, which will keep your plants healthy longer even if the potting soil is dry.
Planters Etc offers a wide range of plant pots in 20 beautiful paint finishes. These include bright yellow (GSF), lime (SGR), and matte black (MBK). You can choose from many different colors of flower pots that will suit your home and add visual interest to your front porch.
Your front door should be frame
It is simple, but effective to frame your front door using two identical tall planters.
We recommend using square planters in bright colors such as Cobalt Blue (MCB) for commercial and residential properties that want to grab the attention of passersby.
This arrangement will make you stand out and provide the perfect spot for hardscape plants such as street trees!
Instead of using hanging baskets, plant in large pots
Hanging baskets, hanging containers, and window boxes are all classic options for your front porch. These are beautiful when filled with a mixture of trailing and annual plants. Large planters can be used if you don’t have enough space for a hanging or window box. Large planter arrangements are ideal for sweet potato vine, which flows through the planter and overflows with lush greenery.

Ideas for a container garden to attract attention inside your home
You can use larger planters by placing them in the center of your living space or entranceway. This makes a great decoration that is both eye-catching and complements the decor of your man-made furniture.
It is important to assess the room’s color scheme and match it with your favorite plants and beautiful planters. If your home’s interior design is neutral, you might consider adding vibrant colors such as red geraniums and french marigolds to it.
If your home is already decorated in bright colors, it might be worth considering tropical plants. Their leafy greens are suitable for any color scheme. A tropical plant such as Elephant Ear or Golden Pothos that can thrive indoors is a good choice. These plants are easy to care for and require little maintenance. They will thrive as long as they get watered regularly.
The Globe Planter and the Toulan Modern Tall Tapered Square Planter are great options for large indoor planters. These are statement pieces that make a great addition to any home.

Large planters are great for landscaping your outdoor spaces
Most commercial properties have some outside space. It doesn’t matter if they face the street or are located in an office block. However, it is important to design this area so that your company appears professional and sophisticated.
People are more likely to spend time and money on businesses that look good. Therefore, landscaping can not only improve the appearance of your building but also increase your bottom line.
To direct your customers, plant at regular intervals
Landscape design is an easy, effective, and cost-effective way to achieve this.
Place large round planters along the sidewalk, or line the entranceway of your building with rectangular-shaped containers.
Planters Etc offers a variety of commercial plants. Our favorites are the Darwin Tall Corner Planter to enhance curb appeal and the Camoux Narrow Rectangular Planter to run along walkways.
It is also possible to fill out outside spaces with smaller plants and delicate flowers like sweet potato vines or petunias. These arrangements look great when they are arranged in a neat and orderly way. They also add beauty and elegance to your home.
Large planter for diving spaces
It can sometimes feel like huge containers were designed for this purpose. These containers are a great solution for creating private diving spaces and privacy in commercial settings.
The company might have a swimming pool, a dining area, or another business right next to it. Installing large pots instead of a dingy wall is much faster, more cost-effective, and more attractive.
Our installation at The Gates in South Beach is a perfect example. The pool area used planters to conceal unsightly equipment and create a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.
You can also use large planters to divide areas with a lot of people, such as at a restaurant or on an outside patio. Planters can be used to create privacy and maximize space.
