Using barrel planters in your yard or garden can help create a beautiful outdoor space. The rustic wood look of barrel planters provides a natural complement to the beauty of your plants.
Barrel planters are usually made of hardwood with metal bands or metal accents. Cedar and redwood are naturally resistant to decay and rot, but most wooden planters will eventually succumb to decay.
This type of planter is usually large, and is a good size for shrubs or small trees, and combination plantings of several types of plants. Since they are large, consider where you place these planters, because they will be difficult to move once filled. You can attach casters to the bottom of these planters, or place them on rolling platforms, before you fill your planter for easier mobility.
Whatever you choose to fill your barrel planter with, it will be sure to add style and rustic charm to your outdoor space.
