Whether you’re a novice gardener or you have many years of expertise, one of the things that may have you stumped is the type of planters you should be using for your plants. While plastic planters are commonplace in the world of gardening, there are many things that make clay planters an obvious better choice. This is true for any of a number of reasons. Whether you are concerned about the environment and sustainability, you want to ensure the best health possible for your plants or you simply want to provide your garden with the optimum amount of aesthetic appeal, clay planters have numerous benefits.
The Sustainable Choice
These days, it’s no secret plastics aren’t the best materials for the environment. However, plastic materials still remain common for many uses, including within the world of gardening. This can be a bit of a problem, especially for those who care about the environment and want to be sure they are making a choice that’s healthy for their plants, as well as sustainable for the environment. In addition to the simple fact producing plastic has vastly larger climate costs than producing clay, people may choose clay planters because they have much higher reusability than a typical plastic planter. While you may only get one, or if you’re lucky, two, uses out of a plastic planter, clay planters can be used over and over again for many years.
Keep Your Plants Healthy
As already mentioned, many people may opt for clay planters because they want to ensure the best health possible for their plants in the long run. One of the great things about using clay planters is clay is incredibly porous. This can help keep the moisture level in the soil around your plants just right, without being too dry or too wet. Clay planters are also gorgeous, and there are many options to choose from, whether you want a Tuscan-inspired look or something a little more modern.
