Board formed concrete provides the industrial, modern look of concrete with the texture and warmth of wood. Large planter boxes usually weigh a ton (especially concrete planters) and require herculean effort to move, even empty! Planters Unlimited found a solution, the Baxter Faux Concrete Planter. This contemporary planter is constructed from indelible fiberglass that maintains the look and feel of concrete but omitting the downsides.
Utilizing fiberglass construction the Baxter is light compared to its concrete bretheren and won't crack or chip like concrete. Being only a fraction of the weight means that installing commercial outdoor planters doesn't require a crane or special equipment to move the planters to their destination. Our designers employ real wood boards in the molding of the planter to achieve the unique characteristics of the wood grain, knots and texture. Now anyone can enjoy the beauty of board formed concrete planters without any of the negatives.

Fiberglass vs. Concrete
While concrete planters are strong and durable for heavy traffic, public spaces...often those planters begin to lose their color, crack, crumble and the top layer deteriorates leaving the rough concrete interior exposed. Over time your once beautiful planters are now weathered and in varying states of decay. Fiberglass planters don't suffer from these downfalls and are lighter making them easier to install. Available in a multitude of colors and finishes, even one that looks almost indistinguishable from concrete with a sand textured finish. We specialize in fiberglass manufacturing and have more than just commercial planters for sale. Our designers can take a style like the Baxter and turn it into countless site amenities for all your commercial needs.
Look and Feel of Board Formed Concrete
The Baxter manages to capture the aura of concrete planters and is almost indiscernible from real board formed concrete. Because we utilize real wood to mold the fiberglass our planter will have all the great characteristics sought after in board formed concrete; wood grain, knots and even subtle imperfections from the boards. These blemishes give warmth and naturalness to the planter. You're sure to impress with the Baxter faux concrete planters. Adding large planter boxes is an expensive investment, so finding the most durable, long-lasting planter is critical. We're confident that our fiberglass planters will out perform their concrete counter-parts, saving you money and the hassle of having to replace and repair the planter over the course of its life. Fiberglass is an incredibly durable material that doesn't suffer from severe heat or extreme cold. Our contemporary planter boxes are sure to look their best for years to come.
Concrete Planters without the Weight
Concrete planters weigh a ton, making installation a project and possibly requiring the use of a crane and street closures. Because of the high strength of fiberglass we're able to manufacture durable commercial planters that look like concrete, but at a fraction of the weight. As an added bonus our commercial outdoor planters can easily be custom built with false bottoms, casters, self watering reservoirs and drainage systems for even more convenience and cost-effective solutions. Our fiberglass board formed concrete planter can be lifted and installed without the need for special equipment, let's see that with a 2,000 lb. concrete planter.
