What industries can benefit from fiberglass rectangular planters?
Fiberglass rectangular planters can be used in a number of settings for the purpose of:
attracting more foot traffic through the wow factor of interior and exterior landscaping
helping to create a relaxed atmosphere that encourages more spending
increasing the perceived value of a property with simple landscaping solutions
For these reasons, our planters are popular in industries such as retail, hospitality, and residential development.
Rectangular plant containers are one of the most popular shapes for commercial and residential landscapes.
They are many applications for rectangular planters, including professional plant management, constructing non-intrusive space dividers, and introducing botanical beauty into otherwise lifeless areas with ease, which is difficult to achieve with many other planter designs.
1. Rectangular planters offer professional plant management solutions
A large rectangular planter means you can support a range of plants in a tidy and professional way. The self-contained nature of growing plants in a planter means less gardening mess and provides an optimized environment for plants to thrive.
Rectangular plants are especially healthy for plants as they have a large soil capacity for plant roots to enjoy.
Plus, when grouping plants together in wide rectangular planters such as our Antwerp Wide Rectangular Planter, maintenance is optimized as all your plants are in the same space. No need to water, feed, and look after several pots at once.
The bottom line: save time and money while giving your plants room to thrive.
2. Rectangular planters can create and define new space
Vietnam CDM large rectangle planters such as the Narbonne Long Rectangular Planter offer solutions such as enhanced privacy, functional room dividers, and can serve as a beautiful and practical perimeter for outdoor spaces.
Restaurants, for example, use our planters specifically for these three purposes. Privacy screens are created with a backdrop of plants, sections of the restaurant are creatively carved out with long rectangular planters and patio areas are cordoned off from the street using rows of rectangular outdoor planters.
Design elements of rectangular planters such as clean and neat lines suit a number of decor concepts from minimalism, modern, to contemporary.
In addition, the long and slim dimensions of rectangular products allow decorators to use them in tight spaces to enhance areas that are inaccessible with round and square planters. Think of the beautifully lined hallways in resorts and office buildings. Rectangular flower planters are often the weapon of choice for such applications.

Best Vietnam CDM colors for rectangular planters
Our industrial painting facility offers a wide variety of trendy and high-quality colors and finishes
Black and white rectangular planters suit most settings and are the most popular.
Though black is not ideal for outdoor use in really hot climates as black planters absorb a lot of heat which can be unhealthy for the plant.
Lighter colors such as green, blue, and red planters are suitable for modern environments such as offices, retail properties, and residential areas.
Earthy tones such as brown, beige and charcoal are great for traditional, boho, and rustic environments.
How to fill rectangular planters
Filling up rectangular planters is easy and hassle-free, however, for extra-large rectangular planters, make sure to install your planter in its final location first and then fill it so you don't have to move it when it is heavy.
Always use potting soil for potted plants, no matter if they are indoors or outside.
To fill up your planter simply:
Step 1: Opt for drainage holes
We recommend adding drainage holes to rectangular planters, especially if they are for outdoor use. Please specify if you would like drainage holes added when you order.
Step 2: Use space savers to fill the bottom of the planter
To ensure good drainage, save costs on soil and water, and make the planter lighter, use a filling material in the bottom 1/3 - 1/2 of your planter. Materials such as gravel, packing peanuts, or plastic bottles are perfect for this.
Step 3: Protect the fillers in the pot
Add landscaping fabric to stop potting soil from falling down into the filler. Though this is optional, it is useful if your filling material is quite large.
Step 4: Prepare soil for potting
After adding the filler material, fill the planter with potting soil to just below the top. Do not use regular garden topsoil as this is too thick and not ideal for potted plants.
Step 5: Planting and touching up
When planting your plant, make a hole in the center of the planter that is large enough for the plant's rootball. This will likely need to be a few inches deep. Add additional potting soil around the plants and give them a deep watering.
Should rectangular planters have drainage or not?
Drainage holes in outdoor rectangular planters are advisable to stop outdoor plants from developing root rot caused by bacteria and fungi that form in the bottom of a planter when there is too much water.
However, indoor planters don't need drainage holes because you are able to control the watering schedule better than in an outdoor environment where rain and hot weather can have unexpected effects.

Multi-plant arrangements for rectangular planters
Large and long rectangular outdoor planters are ideal vessels for the best landscaping formula in the business: thriller-filler-spiller.

What are the best plants for rectangle planters?
With rectangular outdoor planters, it's possible to grow a wide variety of plants. Here are some of the most popular plants:
1. Snake Plant
Snake plants are often the go-to plant for rectangular planter box shapes. They have long variegated leaves that resemble snakes' skin. The foliage is long and straight, and so they are great to use in long rectangle-shaped planters to create a privacy screen or room divider.
2. Parlour Palm
The Parlor Palm is one of the most common indoor plants. A slow growth rate and the ability to thrive in low light and small spaces makes the Parlour palm tree a favourite for offices. Placed in modern large rectangular planters, the Parlour palm can create a wall of lush foliage that is perfect for decorating hallways and lobbies!
