If there’s one positive thing to come out of the pandemic, it’s that people have found a newfound love and passion for gardening. Outdoor planters are more popular than ever and have the power to beautify a front porch or back patio. When I was growing up I spent a lot of time at my grandparents’ house. My grandma loved gardening and had an abundance of beautiful ceramic pots and outdoor planters that she’d bought in Mexico. Her front yard and garden were so welcoming. Family and friends loved relaxing at my grandparents’ home. It brought a sense of peace and tranquility!

I just love the look of outdoor planters on front porches, in the garden, on back patios, and near the pool! I recently bought the most beautiful rosemary plant. It is so fragrant and has gorgeous blue flowers! I started shopping for a new outdoor planter to plant it in, and stumbled on quite a few trendy outdoor planters in a variety of styles and price ranges! 

If you’re searching for a new planter for your outdoor sanctuary, you’re in luck. Today, I’m excited to share 22 of the best outdoor planters in a variety of styles and price ranges! I hope you love them as much as I do.
