Ways to Use Extra Large Planters

Whether you are a business owner or a homeowner, the right planter can really add something fresh and pleasing to any outdoor space. While the smaller options may be easier to add to the space, many people feel overwhelmed when it comes to extra large planters. We have a few fun and easy ways to utilize these bigger sized options to make the space stand out. 

When using extra large planters, the key is to use their size to your advantage. With so many options available for color and style, the possibilities are endless if you know where to place these planters.

Ways to Use Extra Large Planters

Here are a few ideas: 

Line a walkway. This option is ideal for homes lining a driveway for added appeal. It is also great for businesses looking to line sidewalks. When used in a residential setting, it can really add to the overall curb appeal of the home. When used in a commercial or retail space, it looks great, but it also helps to direct foot traffic to stay off the grass and stick to the sidewalk. 

Flank an entrance. The entrance to a business or home should stand out. This space should be inviting and pleasing to the eye. An easy way to make this happen is with extra large planters. Placing one large one near smaller entrances makes for a pleasing centerpiece while you can also flank a larger doorway with one on each side of the entrance for a more dramatic appeal. 

Make it a centerpiece. This is a great idea for a home garden where you want something to stand out. With the use of a large planter, you can create a centerpiece for your yard, garden, firepit area, or pool patio. Adding a colorful, extra planter full of fresh flowers in vibrant colors is a great way to create a centerpiece for a range of spaces. 

Create privacy. Another way to use planters on the larger side is to use them to create a sense of privacy. This can be achieved by creating a space in the yard or patio where planters enclose a space to create more of a private feel than simply leaving the space open. This can be done everywhere from hotel rooftop patios to backyards around the firepit. 

Border windows. Speaking of the matter of privacy, a popular way to use extra large planters for a business is to border windows. This creates a pleasing way to add a touch of greenery or flowers while still providing some extra privacy for certain settings.
