Managing rainwater in urban areas is a daunting task as excessive runoff can lead to erosion, flooding, and water pollution. Downspout planters have gained popularity due to their eco-friendly approach to capturing and diverting rainwater. These planters not only filter pollutants through plants but also add an aesthetic touch and provide a habitat for wildlife.
TerraCast® Planters are an excellent choice for stormwater filtration as they are water-resistant. Unlike other materials that require a waterproof liner inside the container to prevent rust, corrosion, or rot, TerraCast® Planters are designed to withstand water without any additional support. This makes them worth investing in as they function effectively without requiring much maintenance.

Cooler temperature means less watering and less plant maintenance. Take advantage of the fall season to design a unique container garden. Colors and textures are crucial in creating a striking fall container display. Adding edible plants like ornamental peppers, cabbage, and kale can add colors and textures to elevate the overall aesthetic. Selecting the appropriate material container is crucial in designing a fall and winter container garden. Although ceramic and terracotta can create a unique aesthetic, they will not survive in colder climates. The resin planters by TerraCast® Products are a reliable choice for colder climates because they are made to withstand harsh outdoor conditions.

Downspout planters are decorative planters specially designed to absorb and filter stormwater before it enters stormwater management or sewer. They are typically installed along or at the end of the downspout to capture the water. They remove pollutants through filtration by plants while adding aesthetic appeal and providing habitat to wildlife. The best part of the downspout planter is that they do not require a lot of space, which is perfect for urban areas, where space is limited. TerraCast® Planters are ideal for filtering stormwater because they are not affected by water, whereas some material requires a waterproof liner inside the container to avoid rust, corrosion, or rot.

TerraCast® planters, PolySteel™ light poles, and light pole base covers are all manufactured using #4 linear-low density polyethylene (LLDPE) with up to 100% post-consumer recycled content. As we like to say, "our black is green," the standard black color we use contains a minimum of 90% post-consumer recycled content. In addition, the manufacturing process we use for these products, rotational molding (rotomolding), has an environmental advantage because it produces no scrap as all the materials can be 100% recycled.

The privacy element is crucial in creating a comfortable outdoor space. Installing a fence or wall can be costly, but you can create privacy screens using plants and planters. Plants make excellent privacy screens because they can block noise and unsightly views while adding color, texture, and seasonal interest that only gets better each growing season. Large containers are ideal for creating privacy in a small space like a deck or patio. TerraCast® planters are made from a lightweight resin material, which makes the installation effortless and movable. The wide range of styles can fit any landscape style you desire!

Green roofs and rooftop gardens have been some of the most popular garden trends in the last few years, not only from their aesthetic advantage but also from their environmental benefits. While green roofs directly plant vegetation on the rooftop over a waterproof membrane, rooftop gardens plant in a container instead. Rooftop gardens have various advantages, such as maximizing underused space, extending living space, providing habitat for wildlife, reducing the urban heat island effect, and improving air quality. Although green roofs are more effective in insulation and reducing water runoff, using containers is the most economical and flexible option. TerraCast® planters are lightweight, which means maximum flexibility in your design while consuming less energy in transit and installation.

As you get ready to replant spring flowers in your containers, it is a good idea to inspect your planters. Are there any cracks or breakages? Temperature fluctuations and snow melts can have a significant impact on your containers, depending on the material. When you need to replace damaged planters, consider TerraCast® resin-based planters to minimize your future costs on replacements. One of the many benefits LLDPE resin material offers is its flexible property; it resists cracks and breakages caused by temperature fluctuations.

Outdoor planters should be able to withstand the UV rays of the sun and other outdoor elements. Still, most landscaping products are not made to withstand the wear and tear provoked by nature and the general public. It doesn't take long for standard planters to start fading if left in the sun day after day. TerraCast® resin planters are treated with a UV inhibitor, which means they will not need painting or refinishing because they will not fade, chip, or peel.
