Commercial Planters: Beautify Your Space

Commercial planters are above-ground containers used to display live plants and flowers. Unlike traditional flowerbeds, commercial planters remove the hassle of maintaining planted areas. These versatile containers allow businesses to incorporate greenery into their exterior spaces without major landscaping projects. With benefits like flexibility, visual appeal, and customer experience, it’s easy to see why commercial planters are a popular choice to beautify storefronts, offices, and other commercial properties.

Commercial Planters from Furniture Leisure

Furniture Leisure offers a wide selection of commercial planters crafted from quality materials such as steel, concrete, plastic, and recycled plastic like polyethylene. Their concrete planters are weather-resistant and available in sizes large enough to contain trees for a dramatic statement. For more portability, try their smaller recycled plastic planters. The polyethylene material used in these planters contains ultraviolet inhibitors that help the planters retain their vibrant color even when exposed to harsh outdoor elements and sunlight over time.


With many colors and styles to choose from, Furniture Leisure's commercial planters are designed to display live plants outside business properties without needing flowerbeds. Add a touch of green to your commercial space with our durable and stylish planters.


Concrete Planters

Our reinforced concrete planters provide a natural touch to commercial spaces without breaking ground through in-ground planting. Durable enough to last for decades with minimal maintenance, these substantial planters can be used inside or outside of malls, hotels, office buildings, theme parks, and gardens.


The considerable size and weight of concrete planters allow them to act as barriers for directing foot traffic on sidewalks while making a statement when featured in business entranceways.


Recycled Plastic Planters

Commercial recycled plastic planters are a durable, weather-resistant, and eco-friendly option to enhance any indoor or outdoor space. Constructed from post-consumer recycled plastic, these planters are perfect for any space looking for long-lasting, low-maintenance, and visually appealing planters available in a variety of attractive shapes, styles, and sizes.


Made using recycled materials, commercial plastic planters are an environmentally responsible alternative to planters made from materials like wood that require harmful chemicals for treatment and maintenance.


Benefits of Commercial Planters

Commercial planters offer numerous advantages for businesses looking to enhance their curb appeal and brand image. Unlike cut flowers, live plants in commercial planters provide a welcoming environment customers will remember. Their flexibility is another perk, allowing businesses to rearrange displays to highlight seasonal flowers or direct foot traffic.


Other benefits include:


  • Cost-effectiveness: Planters eliminate the need for professional landscaping and frequent mulching/weeding of flowerbeds.
  • Customization: Businesses can paint planters to match branding or choose shapes and materials that reflect their style.
  • Durability: Materials like concrete, metal, and recycled plastic withstand weather fluctuations and heavy foot traffic.
  • Convenience: Self-watering features and drip irrigation options, like the water reservoir built into the frame of some models, reduce the daily maintenance and frequent watering that plants require.


Key Considerations for Selecting Commercial Planters

With so many options on the market, it can be tricky to determine which commercial planters are the right fit for your exterior space, needs, and budget. There are several important factors to take into account when making your selection, including:


  • Size: Consider the scale needed for your location and plants. Large commercial planters make a dramatic statement, while smaller ones allow flexibility.
  • Material: Choose a durable material that fits your climate and design aesthetics:
  • Metal: sleek and modern-looking
  • Concrete: weather-resistant and durable
  • Plastic: affordable and offered in various colors
  • Shape: Match shape to architecture and surrounding landscape. Formal spaces suit square designs, while natural areas can be round.
  • Placement: Place planters thoughtfully for visibility, access, and design impact.


Draw Attention to Storefronts and Entries

Strategically placed commercial planters can enhance businesses in several key ways. When mapping out planter placement, consider positioning them:


  • By storefronts and entryways: invites customers inside and accents architecture.
  • To delineate spaces and direct foot traffic: guides people along safe walking paths.
  • Near problem areas or eyesores: conceals unsightly views while adding natural beauty.


Be sure to evaluate sightlines, existing landscaping, and foot traffic flow when deciding where to place planters. It's also important to consult local regulations for any right-of-way restrictions before installing them. With strategic placement and design, modern commercial planters can improve both the aesthetics and functionality of exterior spaces.


Best Plants for Commercial Planters

When selecting plants for commercial planters, opt for hardy varieties that withstand outdoor elements. Good choices include:


  • Succulents like sedum and sempervivum: drought-tolerant and low-maintenance.
  • Ornamental grasses: add texture and remain attractive year-round.
  • Ivy and jasmine vines: trailing greenery that clings well to planter edges.
  • Herbs like thyme, rosemary, and oregano: add visual interest and allow for easy harvesting.
  • Flowers like petunias, marigolds, and geraniums: prolific annuals that thrive in planters.


Caring For Your Plants

Ensure plants get proper sunlight, water, fertilizer, and drainage. Follow these important tips for keeping the plants in your commercial planters healthy and thriving:


  1. Use quality, well-draining soil to get plants off to a vigorous start.
  2. Apply a controlled-release fertilizer at the start of each growing season.
  3. Avoid overwatering, which can lead to root rot.
  4. Discard spent flowers and prune back wayward growth to maintain an orderly appearance.
  5. Rotate plants seasonally to sustain visual interest and maintain healthy soil.


Proper plant care keeps commercial planters looking fabulous year after year. Let these tips guide you in growing thriving plants.


Maintaining Your Commercial Planters

In addition to caring for the plants themselves, also periodically clean the exteriors of your planters. For plastic planters, use a mild soap and water solution with a soft cloth or brush. Avoid abrasive cleaners. For concrete, sweep away dirt and debris with a broom. Use a pressure washer periodically to remove more stubborn grime and refresh the look. Consider applying a concrete sealer to help protect the finish.


With regular care for both plants and planter exteriors, commercial planters will continue welcoming customers for years to come.
