Redwood and Cedar Planters

 Redwood PlanterA timeless and care-free trend in outdoor decorating is using redwood and cedar planters to display your favorite tropical plants or small potted trees.

Redwood lumber is highly valued for its beauty, light weight, and resistance to decay. Its lack of resin makes it resistant to fire.  Because of its impressive resistance to decay, redwood was extensively used for railroad ties and trestles throughout California. Many of the old ties have been recycled for use in gardens as borders, steps, table tops and plant holders. 

Decorating with planters allows much more freedom to change the size, color and theme of outdoor designs.  You can also use a decorative trellis (or two) inside the planter box and select a beautiful growing vine like a Bouganvilla for a fantastic wall of color.  By placing casters on the legs, the planters can easily be moved around but you'll need to consider the growing conditions of the plants you choose.  Ornamental grasses look stunning in a redwood planter especially when two or more are placed along the fence.  You'll be amazed at the results!
