After having a tumbled paver patio installed this past fall, we’d like to add some outdoor furniture and planters to pretty up our new outdoor space. I’ve been checking out planter options and have fallen in love with the idea of using galvanized metal tubs, buckets, and pails as planters. Just check out these gorgeous galvanized planters from Pottery Barn (post includes affiliate links):

If you’d like to use galvanized containers as planters, I’ve got a few tips for making your container garden a success:

To ensure good drainage, drill a few holes in the bases of your planters and cover the holes with a piece of landscape fabric or screen mesh to prevent soil loss.

If you plan to keep your planters in a very sunny spot, line the sides of them with bubble wrap before adding your plants to insulate them from the hot metal.

Use a high quality potting mix for planting

If you’re using large galvanized tubs on your patio or deck, consider adding casters to the bottom to make them easy to move around.

Galvanized planters are also perfect for growing invasive plants such as mint that have a tendency to overtake gardens. And if you live a little closer than you’d like to your neighbor, think about using them to grow tall rush plants to serve as a privacy screen as shown {here}.

One final tip – pick up one or two more planters than you plan to use for gardening because they also make the best shabby chic coolers for those summer outdoor parties!

Looking for the perfect, unique containers for your plants? Galvanized planters are it! Sharing inspiring pics and planting tips to help you go galvanized!
