10 pretty planters

Dress up your deck, balcony or front porch with attractive containers to display your favourite flowers and plants

You carefully water, fertilize and prune your plants and you nurture your flowers from seeds to blooms. With all the care and time you invest in your garden, it would be a shame to dull the beauty of your labours by planting 'em in some beat-up old containers. Display your plants and flowers in pretty pots to truly make them shine.

The following 10 planters will add some style to your yard and enhance your garden's décor.

planters-2naturalstone.jpg2. Weathered classic
The natural stone look of this fiberglass pot will be right at home outdoors and on your deck. Its worn-in finish gives it a modest—but no less stunning—appeal.

planters-3agedcopper.jpg3. Aged copper
A rustic beauty in an aged copper finish, this "Tambore" planter oozes sophistication and historic charm. It's made of polypropylene, so it'll withstand the elements for years, but its worn-in look will deceive unknowing admirers into thinking it’s a precious family heirloom.

planters-4clovis.jpg4. Flower power
Add a little oomph to your garden décor with the blooming pretty pattern of the Clovis planter.

And pink, violet, white or orange flowers will pop against this planter’s neutral grey tones.
