The Pros and Cons of Fiberglass Planters

Trying to decide which type of planter to choose for your garden, patio, foyer, deck or sitting room? We might be just a tad bit biased, but we feel that the best type of containers to use when planting are those which are made out of fiberglass. However, not just any fiberglass will do. It’s important to order fiberglass planters from a company that specializes in the industry in order to get the best deal possible.

This is why our team only uses the highest quality fiberglass to craft our pots and planters. To help you better decide whether or not they are the right choice for you, here is an overview of the pros and the cons of fiberglass pots.

Pros of Fiberglass Planters

There really are so many great things about fiberglass plant containers, but there are a few big reasons why they are preferred by everyday gardeners, landscapers and professional growers. For starters, unlike metal pots or stone planters, fiberglass garden containers are impressively lightweight. This allows you to move them around in the garden, on the patio, indoors or on the roof with ease.

They’re also weather-resistant. While plastic pots dry and crack, metal planters rust and wooden containers splinter, fiberglass pots and planters are strong enough to withstand the elements. They’re rust-proof, shatterproof and frost-resistant. This of course means that you can leave the containers outdoors when it’s snowing, raining or bright and sunny.

Furthermore, these extra durable planters won’t succumb to UV exposure. This lets you add style to your garden, patio, deck, sun room, kitchen or terrace using colored planters without the need to worry about the color or finish fading. Another reason why fiberglass garden planters are the recommended choice is because they’re affordable.

They also don’t need to be replaced every few years, saving you money! Needless to say, there is little to no maintenance needed to keep your plant containers looking brand new. 

Cons of Fiberglass Planters

There aren’t that many cons to list in regards to outdoor and indoor fiberglass planters. The only thing that seemingly can be considered a con is that fiberglass planters aren’t as inexpensive as cheap plastic pots. However, the minimal difference is a small price to play for the durability you will experience with fiberglass pots.

While plastic pots usually fall apart after just one planting season, fiberglass containers are built to last. That means you won’t have to replace the garden containers with the seasons. Simply leave them put. You can even remove any dead plants or blooms and replace them each year. These planters really are that tough.

As you can clearly see, there are plenty of reasons why fiberglass garden pots are much superior that other varieties.

  1. Is there a weight consideration with a fiberglass pot? We have a 2 foot square pot that holds a huge, old bonsai tree. We are moving and would like to take the bonsai, in the pot, to our new home. Will the pot survive a move?

  2. I have purchased a large bowl shape fibreglass pot to make a water feature with pump. I was wondering if the fibreglass would have a nasty affect if I added a couple small fish to it.
