You can stick to a certain color and find different planter styles, shapes and sizes. Or you can stick to a planter style – like modern – and find different colors and sizes in that style.
If you have a small space, like a balcony or indoor garden, the Allen + Roth line of planters can be coordinated into small, showy container gardens. Experts say the first step to a beautiful container garden is to pick the perfect pot – and the Allen + Roth line of planters allows you to pick several and they’ll all coordinate.
Allen + Roth planters come in ceramic, resin, composite, fiberglass, plastic, metal, clay, stone, wicker, fabric, and wood. The widest range of planters offered are made of ceramic and resin.
Allen + Roth’s planters come in S, M, L and XL sizes. Planter styles are low bowl, traditional round, square and rectangular. They offer urns, deck boxes, hanging baskets, planters on stands and a wall planter.
Some planters are specified as indoor ones, but the majority are indoor/outdoor. Many planters come with saucers attached but some have matching, or coordinating, saucers. All have drain holes for plant health.
Ceramic planters are round and come in vibrant colors, some are glazed and some natural. They come in a wide variety of patterns, colors, and sizes. Some planters in Allen + Roth’s ceramic line have simple macrame hangers.
Ceramic planters are a traditional, durable choice. Some can last for decades. They won’t blow over on a windy day, and they weather naturally. Ceramic planters coordinate well with wood and stone.
Many experts say that ceramic planters will crack when left outside in freezing conditions. Terra cotta pots freeze because they are porous and soak in water. The water freezes and expands. Glazed ceramic pots have all that porosity sealed over. Allen + Roth offers high fired, glazed planters that are “frost-resistant” (and the reviewers say they actually are).
Allen + Roth lightweight resin planters come in glossy, vibrant, or neutral colors. Resin planters are round, square, and rectangular. Resin can be molded so some come in detailed patterns. Some planters have a modern style in black or grey. The durable, heavy-duty resin comes with a UV inhibitor. Resin is very weather-resistant and a good choice if you don’t want to lug around heavy ceramic pots.
Most of the Allen + Roth resin planters have drain holes, but some have easy knock out holes. The holes do not require drilling. The resin pot line does not have attached saucers, but most have matching saucers available.
Resin planters also come as hanging baskets or window boxes. One resin planter is patterned like cement and another has a carved wood look – all in low-care resin. Many of the poly-resin planters are made from recycled products.
The Allen + Roth fiberglass planter line has many urn-style choices. Hand crafted and painted; these are perfect for either side of the front door. Add a small bush like a Topiary or boxwood. The tall, attention-grabbing fiberglass planters are durable and lightweight. Allen + Roth offers fiberglass planters in several styles from showy to minimalist.
Some planters come with stands so you can get your plants off the carpet. The style is modern and minimal. Reviewers liked the stands because they were sturdy.
Allen + Roth also offers several natural-looking wicker baskets to set planters in. They have PE liners to protect against leakage and handles for moving. The poly-wicker is hand-woven in Vietnam.
