What Are Some Popular Types of Large Outdoor Pottery?

Popular types of large outdoor pottery include traditional terra cotta planter pots, Grecian style urns, Dover petal vases and Chelsea box planters. Large pots and urns can be used to plant a variety of flowers and plants to increase landscape styling.

Before planting anything in large pots and planters, inspect the container to be sure there is adequate drainage in the bottom, then add a light weight bulky filler material to aid the drainage process and cut down on the overall weight of the filled planter. Examples of inexpensive filler material include clean plastic drink containers, crushed soda cans and foam packing material; these fillers should be used to fill the bottom one-fourth to one-third of the container.
