If you are looking for contemporary styled outdoor containers/planters stop by and see the amazing selection at Not Just For The Garden.

Gone are the days of lugging heavy cast iron and glazed ceramic planters. There is a significant variety of light weight planters now available in different frost resistant materials. Making for low maintenance, ease of transport and installation. Because of the light weight, it is recommended to add weight inside the pot when installing, by use of drainage stone. Our staff can provide you with complete installation guidelines so that your planters resist strong winds no matter where they are located.

With over 30 years of experience in selecting and designing planters, NJFTG can help you select the right planter for the right place, with their complimentary design services. Here is a brief description of the different types of materials that containers are available in for year round use in our Canadian climate.

Fiber stone: Fiber Stone is made  from the combination of fiberglass and crushed stone mixed with a composite. It is frost resistant and comes in a variety of neutral colors and contemporary shapes. The advantages of Fiber Stone include its reinforced fiberglass backing keeping the piece lightweight and less fragile than concrete.

Ficonstone: A new development of mixing fiberglass, cement, sand and stone powder creates a more robust product. The advantage is a natural look, light weight and reasonable prices. These stone planters get good reviews, and most say that they are very lightweight (made from a composite material of cement, plastic and stone) but appear to be cement and therefore appear substantial. A great find for a rooftop, or small space. They  come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and two colours. Natural cement and black.

Zinc Galvanized Metal: Metal that has had an enamel finished baked on like a car paint so that it resists rusting when left outdoors for several seasons. The advantages, again are light weight but the colours available are unlimited.

Stone Lite Planters:The latest in Planter designs made of Stone and Resin/fiberglass. Planters are weather and UV resistant, and duplicate the look of stone at a fraction of the cost.

Plastic: When comparing pots in the marketplace make sure that they are recommended for outdoor use, several inexpensive brands are out there but fade and discolor when used outdoors. We warranty our resin planters to be UV stabilized and they do not fade outside.

Iron: we have an exclusively designed “Garden Pillar” handcrafted and made in Canada. Available in 3 heights. Please stop by to view and request a quote.
