Front Porch Planter Ideas

It’s that time of year again when we enjoy the outdoors and nature’s vitamin D. I mean I do anyway.

Hibernation season is over and we go outside to play. My husband is literally the one with the green thumb in our family. Every year he puts effort and love into the front porch and garden area.

This year we really need to update our outdoor planters. As I was sourcing online I found a lot of modern and trendy options.

By now you know I’m not about traditional design. I love a good modern contemporary style piece of home decor over a traditional “classic” any day of the week.

That said check out all the fun planters I found from my favorite stores online.

This post is all about front porch planter ideas.

11. Santos Speckled Planter


Terracotta planter with hand-poured glaze has that vintage/found feel. A white cylinder with round bottom rests on four wide terracotta legs that could pass for terrazzo.

For me, the Terrazzo material adds so much character and style to a piece. I’m considering this one as an option for our walkway update.

Not sure if my husband is on board but I’ll show him the choices. He works so hard at making the outside pretty he can decide which he likes best.

I like to narrow down the choices for him so he doesn’t get overwhelmed.

This is the top pick at the moment and the option photoshopped into the feature image.

Love the design details of the wicker material over the painted terracotta base.

15. Black Pedestal Pescadero Outdoor Planter


So many things to love about this one. The smaller size is an option for Willow House as well.

The Modern outdoor planter features a stunning pedestal silhouette and a ribbed exterior. It’s crafted of black-hued cement and the tall shape allows for flowering vines or trailing succulents to spill down the sides.

This planter is available in two sizes which are perfect for the layered look that is trending.

16. Arcaydia Medium Wood and Metal Planter


Lastly, the Arcaydia planter is handmade by skilled artisans of richly grained acacia wood that sits in a black powder coated iron stand. 

I hope this gave you ideas and inspiration for your outdoor space makeover.
