When the weather gets warm, there’s nothing we want more than to relax on a patio, breathe in fresh air, and surround ourselves with lush greenery. Leafy plants and brightly-colored blooms can add a welcoming warmth to an outdoor space, but the outdoor planters you house them in can be works of art all on their own.

These gorgeous planters look more expensive than they are, and will perfectly accentuate your indoor or outdoor space.

Mallie 3-Piece Plastic Pot Planter Set

Outdoor planters for your porch

$65.99, Wayfair


  • Small: 11.1” H x 11” W x 11” D
  • Medium: 14.7” H x 14.2” W x 14.2” D
  • Large: 17.4” H x 17.2” W x 17.2” D

Constructed with polypropylene resin, the rattan-style planters have drainage plugs and are water-resistant. The durable set of three can be arranged together or separately, and won’t deteriorate, rot, rust, or stain.

One reviewer wrote, “Fabulous, sturdy, and spacious! (Much more so than the original photo made it out to be.) Liked these so much, I bought two more sets to give as gifts.”

Morden Resin Pot Planter

Outdoor planters for your porch

$39.99, Wayfair


  • 13.5” H x 14.5” W x 14.5” D
  • 2.2 pounds

This colorful resin planter will cheer up even the blandest of spaces. It looks heavier than it is (just two pounds!), but its durable construction is resistant to water and cracking. It doesn’t include drainage holes (so it can easily be used indoors), but there is a handy indicator on the bottom if you would like to drill your own.

One reviewer wrote, “These planters are great. Bought two for my front door for artificial trees. The quality is top notch and colors are stunning!”

Rivet Mid-Century Ceramic Planter with Iron Stand

Sizes (without stand):

  • Small: 5.7″ diameter x 5.51″ high
  • Medium: 8″ diameter x 8.27″ high
  • Large: 10.24″ diameter x 11″ high
  • Extra large: 12.2″ diameter x 13″ high
  • Wide: 12.4″ diameter x 3.54″ high

These two-tone, 100 percent stoneware planters come with an iron stand, but look beautiful even when they aren’t raised. They come in seven different colors, so you can match them with your indoor or outdoor decor.

One reviewer wrote, “Beautiful planter pot and stand. Very high quality in appearance and feel. Searched for stylish planters (mid-century modern) at all sorts of stores and couldn’t find anything. … I was hesitant to order online, but it was a great decision! After factoring in a planter pot of this size plus the stand, the price seems about just right.”

La Jolíe Muse Flower Pot Large Garden Planter Set

Outdoor planters for your porch

$42.99, Amazon


  • 11.3″ (upper) diameter x 6.5″ (bottom) diameter x 8.7″ height
  • 5 pounds

The matte, marble finish of this two-piece set looks like concrete, but is actually made of durable recyclable plastic and natural stone powder. This makes them weather-resistant and lightweight for easy moving. It comes with four raised, pre-drilled drainage holes to ensure a breathable, healthy environment for your plants.

One reviewer wrote, “I purchased the 2-pack of 14″ & am extremely pleased. I thought that the price seemed reasonable but the quality is seriously as good as pots I’ve seen at big box stores costing twice as much. Thick and durable! Not flimsy at all. Both pots I received have a unique finish. Slightly different enough to look like natural sandstone. These should last through a few tornadoes!”

Pure Series Plastic Planter Box

Outdoor planters for your porch

Starting at 96.57, Wayfair


  • Small: 16″ H x 31″ W x 9″ D; 24 pounds
  • Large: 20″ H x 39.5″ W x 13″ D; 39 pounds

This narrow, tall planter is surprisingly made of plastic, but looks modern as ever. It has drainage holes and is flexible, impact-resistant, sturdy, and treated with UV inhibitors to minimize fading. It also comes in gray and espresso brown!

One reviewer wrote, “The planters matched the description and were exactly what we were looking for. The color is great with our decor and the planters are nice and sturdy for the outdoors. There is a plug on the bottom to help with drainage.”

Elick Raised Garden

Outdoor planters for your porch

$139.99 (was $149.99), Wayfair


  • 31” H x 50.5” W x 27” D
  • 51 pounds

This sturdy, wooden raised planter is made of rot-resistant cedar. It comes with a liner tray to protect your plants and is easy to tend to (no more crouching to weed!). It can be painted or stained to your desired color, or kept natural for a rustic, earthy look.

One reviewer wrote, “It’s exactly what I expected. Similar size planters can cost hundreds. I’ve been looking at options for a while. We painted it white and it looks stunning. Some say it is too rough and should be sanded. Nonsense. It’s cedar. It took a paintbrush just fine. We are considering buying two more for our space. This was my first time using Wayfair and experienced flawless and faster than promised shipping.”

Wooden Bucket Barrel Planter Set

Outdoor planters for your porch

$27.98 (was $38.99), Amazon

These country-chic barrel planters are constructed of cedar for long-lasting durability, and have handles to easily move them indoors or out. With pre-drilled drainage holes and a grid pad, your soil will stay healthy and in place.

One reviewer wrote, “I really did enjoy these small planters. They are real wood which I didn’t expect. Plus these are perfect for using as decor inside the home.”

Tall Black Planter Set

$116.18, Amazon


  • 15.5″ L x 15.25″ W x 24″ H
  • 30 pounds

These tall planters will perfectly frame a doorway, set of stairs, or gate. The molded design is stately, and high-grade polyethylene is resistant to weather so you’ll have them for a while. It also comes with a self-watering tray insert that creates a sub-irrigation water system and encourages root growth.

One reviewer wrote, “These planters are a great height and width, not too large for the entryway, yet do not feel dwarfed by the front door area. They are substantial but not too heavy for moving easily. The color goes with anything.”
