Cement planters and concrete planters are among the many vessels in which you can grow your beloved plants. They can be found in many sizes, from small ones for planting herbs to planters large enough for small trees. There are many benefits to using concrete planters.
It should be noted that there is a distinction between cement and concrete – primarily, it’s that cement (along with rock) makes up concrete.
There are several benefits that come with using concrete planters. First and foremost, they last a long time because they are made of such a hardy, durable material.
Concrete is used in buildings, so it should come as no surprise that concrete planters are quite popular among gardeners. Similarly, because concrete has such a rough look, damage will easily be hidden when compared to materials like wood, plastic or clay.
Concrete offers good heat insulation. The sun will warm the concrete and the soil inside it, and the concrete will keep the soil at a good, warm temperature, which can be ideal for growing plants that come from warmer climates or ones that have a higher heat requirement.
Also, because they last for so long, they are more environmentally friendly than plastic planters, which will degrade over time.
