Whether you are looking to expand the functionality of your business or establishment’s outdoor spaces or modify its aesthetic presentation, there are several reasons why you should consider having outdoor planters and plants. From providing health benefits to being a unique way to create barriers and organize your spaces, planters can provide many benefits to your establishment while also being environmentally friendly.

TerraCast’s resin planters offer a lightweight solution while being exceptionally durable and long-lasting. If you are in the market for planters or are unsure how they might be beneficial, here are five unexpected benefits that they can bring to your establishment.

They Can Help Improve Air Quality 

Using outdoor planters means housing plants for display for their visual appeal or functionality. One of the many benefits associated with plants is better air quality by purifying and removing toxins from the air. According to Nasa, plants can remove as much as 87 percent of toxins in the air, making them an invaluable asset if your establishment is in a busy urban area or an environment with air pollution. 

Flexible Outdoor Spaces

One of the many advantages of resin planters is that they are lightweight. Unlike stone, metal, and other raw materials, resin products can be handled easily and do not require heavy equipment to lift and move them. Should you wish to rearrange your outdoor space or add capacity should the need arrive, resin planters can provide an easy solution in addition to the many health and visual benefits associated with plants. 

Make Use of Underused or Unused Outdoor Spaces

Many office buildings, restaurants, and educational facilities have outdoor spaces that remain unused or underutilized. Rather than investing in building add-ons or upgrades, you can instead make use of your outdoor spaces to provide additional work areas, lounges, dining, or study spaces. Whatever your needs, resin planters offer a lightweight solution that can be easily set up or removed when they are no longer necessary. It will also save you money by not spending on expensive upgrades to your facility or establishment. 

Improve Health and Wellbeing 

By using resin planters to create outdoor working spaces for your staff or lounges for guests and customers, you can contribute to improving their health and well-being. In addition to the improved air quality, spending time outdoors in the sun has the benefit of boosting your immune system, relieving stress, reducing depression symptoms, and overall boosting emotional and mental health. Resin planters offer a convenient and unique way to add or modify outdoor spaces that can be of great benefit to your workers, clients, or guests. 

Durable, Resistant, and Long-Lasting 

While you might think that plants and planters are only a temporary solution, TerraCast’s resin planters are made to last and are extremely resilient. Like metal, they can take a beating from impact damage or any other physical harm without sharing in its vulnerability to rust and corrosion. 

Additionally, resin is non-porous and non-hygroscopic, making it resistant to water damage—where alternative materials like clay or ceramic will expand and crack from freeze and thaw cycles over time. If you are looking for a long-lasting solution, consider using resin planters as they are lightweight, weather-resistant, and durable – making them an ideal choice for your outdoor spaces.  

Use TerraCast’s Resin Planters for Your Outdoor Spaces

TerraCast’s planters use up to 100 percent PCR (post-consumer recycled) materials that are eco-friendly and perfect for promoting good health. They are durable and weather resistant, making them great for year-round outdoor application without being a permanent construction.
