Aged to Perfection

We’re drawn to these pots from Terrain for their subtle coloring and all-weather resistance. Hand-crafted of super-lightweight fiber concrete, this ridged pot brings the look of aged stone to your patio while actually being quite easy to move around.

This pot from CB2 is as versatile as it is stunning, and can live happily inside or out. The planter is hand-thrown and painted with soft beachy hues inspired by the sand and sea. It’s easy to make a statement with even the simplest plants when they are growing from this stunning piece.

This handmade ceramic and metal planter is the perfect solution for that corner of the porch where nothing will quite fit. Play with different levels in your design scheme by stationing one slightly tucked behind a lower potted plant.

We love thinking outside the box with our patio planters, and Terrain has come up with a beautiful way to do just that. The Iron Wire Tulip Urn stands just over three feet tall and is the perfect choice to frame your entryway. Plant with a few species together to really make an impact.

A Fine Romance

Add some romantic elegance to the patio with this tall, stately fluted cast-iron urn from Terrain. We love it planted with some contrasting color and tumbling vines to provide a touch of drama. Make sure not to overwater, as it comes sans drainage hole.
