Iron planters

Planters have the task of containing plants and flowers that cannot be planted directly in the ground. They are often used on balconies and are available in different materials to satisfy everyone's tastes. The material that has always been considered a synonym of elegance is certainly wrought iron. His work dates back to quite distant times and continues today to have a huge success, especially in the last few decades in which the taste of poor art has been rediscovered. What distinguishes one iron planter beaten by any type of planter is its appearance because it is able to give a touch of originality. If the surface available for planting is rather small, planters can be used, but the important thing is to buy them of an appropriate size. They are able to decorate the garden in a perfect way but it is important that the materials can be combined with the already existing style. It is often thought that the iron planter it is more suited to a balcony as it is easy to attach to the railing. However it is not so; in fact iron planters are an excellent solution even for those who have a garden. Of course, by hooking the flower box onto the balcony, you gain space and are also light models that have traditional shapes and are usually green, brown or black. Iron appears in the planter sector as a timeless element, above all for its practicality and resistance. Decorations and friezes can be the elements that enrich it externally to make it look like an antique-style planter. Its slightly protruding edge facilitates its grip and also allows it to be moved easily. The capacity of the iron planter depends very much on its size and is designed to guarantee flowers with large roots, to grow without suffering bottlenecks and deleterious compressions. The iron planter is therefore used, both for the balcony in the form of a grid and for the garden with the typical shape of a vase or a box. It is essential and simple but at the same time it has all the features that make it a long-lasting planter. When exposed to the elements it does not undergo any alteration because, generally, it is treated with anti-rust and water-repellent paints similar to those used for boats that bear the corrosive action of sea salt.
So when you buy an iron planter you can be sure that the necessary treatments have been carried out that make it resistant to any weather situation and moreover, it is insulated on the inside to prevent the ground from coming into direct contact with the iron. The water used to water the plant can still oxidize it even partially, but if it is well insulated the planter will remain intact. The insulation in the case of iron planters in the shape of a vase or simple square or rectangular boxes is made with tar, an excellent element of protection and above all waterproof.

Of course, the purchase of the planter is carried out among various models on display but if you go directly to a skilled craftsman, he will be able to make it according to our requests and above all to meet our needs. Buds, flowers, leaves are just some of the decorative elements that can be obtained with its elaboration, which enrich the structure of these containers for vases and plants.

They are generally small, but require some care to be placed in the right place and to decorate the room in a safe way. It is necessary to evaluate that the walls allow the realization of the holes for the hooks, without risk that with the weight they widen letting the planter fall on the ground. Furthermore, the planter should not be too heavy compared to the hook, which otherwise could give way over time. The iron material can take on various colors while the diversity of styles on the market, allow the wall planters to adapt in the best way to the furnishing of the house.
