Choosing The Best Type Of Planter For Vancouver
Adding greenery around your home not only boosts curb appeal on the outside, but also brings a warm, natural ambiance within your home.
There are an endless variety of planting containers to choose from in Vancouver, which can make choosing the right type a daunting decision. Fortunately with a few tips, you'll be able to narrow down the selection to a few that are just right for you and your home.
Planter Size Matters
The size of your container matters, not only for where you can place the planter, but also for how many plants it can hold. This is the single biggest influence in your planning, so it should be the factor you consider first, whether you're choosing containers for indoors or outdoors.
If you plan to put several plants into one container, be sure that the planter can handle it, with room to spare. You don't want to crowd the container and end up with root-bound plants that wilt.
Design Your Drainage
Drainage will directly affect the health of your plants, especially if the varieties you choose need a well-drained soil. You need to keep a balanced ecosystem of your soil healthy and thriving, providing for plenty of air and water to get to the roots through loose, rich soil.
You need just enough drainage to let air get to the roots, but not so much that they dry out. If you aren't sure what they need, consult the planter vendor.
The weight of your containers are another consideration.

Weight is a crucial matter when it comes to placing planters in weight-sensitive locations such as wooden porches or balconies. Putting too many containers or planters that are too heavy in such locations can not only damage your home, but can also be a hazard to others.
Advantages Of Buying Planters Wholesale
There are several advantages to buying your planters wholesale, which will make your landscape gardening and house plant growing simpler and less expensive.
Selection: Instead of the same style of containers that you see at every nursery and big box store, a wholesale planter supplier can have a much wider variety of planters in stock.
Savings: Shopping wholesale saves you money because wholesale prices are always lower than retail prices. Buying wholesale in one location will also cut down on the impulse spending for unplanned purchases that often occurs when you visit multiple stores to find what you want.
Experience and Knowledge: You can rest assured that you'll make better buying decisions because you'll be able to get helpful answers to any questions you have, from people who know all about planters and the various needs that a consumer may have.
Delivery: Instead of lugging many large or heavy containers home in your vehicle or a rented truck, a wholesaler can allow you to place an order and receive a timely delivery straight to your door.
Great Customer Service: A wholesaler focuses their business on planters—they don't sell hundreds of other items. This means that it's important to make sure the customers are happy with the planters they've selected, and they'll go the distance to make sure your buying experience is a good one.
With these tips for planning and purchasing your garden containers, you can be sure that you're selecting the right planters for your Vancouver home.
