Dress Up Your Garden with Large GRC Pots

Large GRC pots can make your container gardening easier than you ever thought possible. As every gardener knows, large plants require large pots. If you are growing young trees or even certain types of vegetables, an ordinary houseplant pot just is not going to do the job. The big problem with this is that big pots are heavy.

Many large garden planters are made of cast concrete and can be extremely difficult to move from one place to another. This is where GRC pots are almost magical. Sometimes also called GFRC pots, these planters are made from concrete that is reinforced with glass fiber. The fiber help bind the concrete together, creating a pot that is both light-weight and strong.

Of course, when you add earth and a young tree to a GRC pot, it is still going to have some mass, and you might want to put some wheels under it to move it from place to place, but you will have an option to move the pots themselves into position before you add the coarse drain material and growing medium as well as the plant that is intended for that pot.

Convenience is always nice, but if you are purchasing something to house a prize grass tree, or that your favorite dragon tree, or even that sweet little agave that just seems to be getting bigger and bigger, then you want a pot that is as special as the plant that will be growing in it.

One of the great things about GRC pots is that not only are the lightweight, yet strong, they can also be molded into a variety of shapes ranging from your basic cube right on up through elegant Grecian or Egyptian urns, molded with grapes and fruits or glazed to look like exotic temple ornaments that might have graced the steps of the famous hanging gardens.

You can have a wide selection of colors, as well, ranging from basic terra cotta to sleek designer colors that can help highlight your special plants. More than that, with a wide range of colors and shapes you can select pots that will go with the theme you have set for your greenspace, whether the pots are destined for a sunny place in your summer garden or a more permanent position in a greenhouse, solar living space, patio, balcony.

While one of the attractive features of GRC pots is being able to have a large, strong, durable pot that is still sufficiently lightweight to move about without special equipment, the material can be used to make smaller containers as well as large ones. In fact, one approach is to have a set of GRC pots in graduated sizes. These sets can help tie a garden area into a graceful arrangement, while accommodating different sizes and styles of plants.

It is easy to see why many gardeners are raving about these pots. They combine practicality, design, color, and size to allow you to design the appearance of your garden your way. No more wrestling a heavy concrete planter from one location to another, or having to chivvy it onto a dolly or rolling platform to be able to move it.

Better yet, no more needing to compromise on design by installing almost match items with established items. Many companies will produce the pots you want on demand. If you don’t want to wait for a bespoken pot, most sellers will have a wide selection of GRC pots from which you can select the best one for your garden.

In no time at all, you can be the envy of your fellow gardeners or members of your local garden club. Better yet, you will be able to select the right size pot for the plants you are growing so that they comfortable and grow well. After all, when you are container gardening, it all starts with the container. GRC pots can be the answer to your container gardening needs.
