Fiberglass Planters In NYC
This selection of modern and durable planters are made of 100% fiberglass. They are extremely lightweight and meet all weight restrictions for NYC rooftop gardens. Pottery King works directly with factories overseas and designs exclusive sizes and shapes. Due to our large inventory and customization, we are able to accommodate all of our customer’s needs.
Why Choose a Fiberglass Planter?
Fiberglass planters are beneficial for a number of reasons. Primarily, planters made out of fiberglass are preferred due to their lightweight yet sturdy construction. Lightweight planters are easy to move and rearrange in gardens, on patios, or on rooftops to change with the seasons or as desired. You can be sure with a lightweight fiberglass planter from Planter Resource that you are meeting all weight requirements set for New York City rooftop gardens, balconies, and terraces.
If you choose to decorate your outdoor space with your beautiful new potted plants, you will want to be sure that they are protected. Fiberglass planters are weather-resistant, resistant to UV exposure, and most importantly, frost resistant. Fiberglass is strong enough to withstand the elements without succumbing to rust, losing its color, cracking, drying out, or shattering. The strength of this material allows you to leave your fiberglass planters out in the rain and snow of the New York City Winters, and brightest sunny days of Summer (We can’t speak for the plants inside though! Please research the limitations of your live plants and take them inside as needed) Our fiberglass planters, however, are built to last season after season, allowing you to simply replant and reuse whenever desired without having to replace them.
Even though most are pre-drilled, adding extra drainage holes is always a good idea. More importantly, make sure your planters are up off the ground slightly, this will promote proper drainage. We recommend using our “Pot Risers” for this application. They are 2”x2” rubber squares that go under each corner which will allow for proper drainage. This is a very important step in container gardening.
There are really so many great things about fiberglass planters, but there are a couple of big reasons why everyday gardeners, landscapers, and professional growers prefer them. For example, the fiberglass garden containers are impressively lightweight, unlike metal pots or stone planters. It helps you to quickly push them about in the yard, in the pool, indoors, or on the roof.
They are weather-resistant too. While dry and crack plastic pots, rusting metal planters, and splintering wooden containers, fiberglass pots and plantings are strong enough to withstand the elements. They’re rust-proof, frost-resistant, and shatterproof. That, of course, means that whether it’s snowing, raining, or bright and sunny you should leave the containers outdoors.
Moreover, these robust planters do not lead to UV radiation. This allows you to add style to your garden, patio, deck, sunroom, kitchen or terrace using colored plantings without having to worry about the fading color or finish. Another explanation of why garden planters of fiberglass are the preferred option is that they are affordable. They don’t have to be updated every few years, either, saving you time! Needless to mention, the maintenance needed to keep your plant containers looking brand new is little to none.
Longevity is one of the key qualities of fiberglass planters. Fiberglass is a tough material by itself. The result is much stronger by adding additional components, like plastic or polymer. When the components are combined, manufacturers can produce one of the most demanding gardening materials. This is why landscapers and garden lovers choose this material because they can survive extreme conditions.
At Pottery King, we specialize in finding the perfect planter for your or your business’s needs. Browse through our selection of fiberglass planter shapes and designs and find the perfect planter for you.

You may paint the planter if it is unpainted. Repeat when the paint is starting to fall off. Remember to choose one that is safe for plants. Expect to repeat the procedure every year if your containers are subjected to sun, rain, heat and frost.
Cedar and redwood are known to have a natural resistance to insect and rot damage.
Provide drainage – drill holes in the bottom of the pot if there are none or not enough. Add a layer of gravel to prevent holes from getting clogged with soil.
Add a plastic layer inside the planter to protect wooden walls from moisture. Remember to cut holes at the bottom to allow water drainage.
Place the container on the hard surface to isolate it from the ground and prevent rot.
Choosing The Right Wood Planter
Before you shop for wood planters, consider these points:
Make sure you pick the pots made of durable wood like cedar, oak, redwood or teak.
Will you paint them yourself to suit your design? Perhaps you prefer the convenience of finished planters.
Concrete planters are long-lasting and environmentally friendly investments. Concrete is heavy and able to withstand elements such as wind or rain. You won’t have to worry about your plants being ruined or uprooted from getting knocked over. Our formula at Slick Rock creates a mix heavy enough to remain durable without being totally immovable. In addition, because concrete’s color is uniform, your planter won’t be any less visually appealing in the event of it ever getting chipped or damaged.
We offer a variety of colors for you to choose from, but cement is typically lighter in color and better for the roots of your plants since darker colors absorb sunlight and heat. The density of concrete promotes insulation and will keep the soil surrounding your plants warm during cold weather. Thick walls create a barrier to prevent water leakage from planters, which would cause damage to your home, patio, or planter itself.
For heavier plants and trees, concrete planters are ideal because of their weight and volume. Sizeable greenery requires a deep vessel to allow its roots enough room to grow without crowding. A large planter with an attractive design can expand the size of your garden drastically or provide the perfect juxtaposition to fill the empty space in your home. Compared to other materials, concrete creates a more elegant atmosphere perfect in any situation.

If you’re interested in terracotta pottery, we’ve got plenty of options.Terracotta is a very popular form of pottery; it is a brownish-red material that is clay based. It’s great for both outdoor and indoor plants. From basic terracotta pots to unique ones, we’ve got your plant needs covered. To decide the best option for your plant, take a look at the surroundings. Question what will look best for the plant and how the plant and its roots will spread. From there, you can decide what to choose. Consider our multitude of terracotta options and find what’s best for you and your plant.
We’ve got standard pots, if you’re looking for a standard one. However, we’ve also got unique terracotta pots such as the Garden Bowl. The bowl is a great option if your plant needs more room to spread its roots. If your plant wants additional room to spread out its roots, you may consider a Tall Pot. These are longer than the Standard Pot, so there is more room for the plant to grow out. We also sell Window Box planters, which are another unique and great option for your plants. These planters not only allow more room for your plants to spread out, but these planters allow you to plant more. With a standard pot, you typically can fit only one plant inside. But with a Window Box, you have more freedom to add in additional plants.
Along with our Terracotta Pottery, we have a few saucers available for sale. The ones we have are Rectangle, Clay, and Glazed. These don’t have room for plants to grow out, yet they are excellent for displaying plants. Like our potted plants, these saucers can be tailored to a variety of sizes.
