Very good looking and right size for location.

These are very attractive "planters" - they look more expensive than they are.

We weighted the bottom with rocks, but they still tipped over.

Size Name: Round Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First of all, these really are big, handsome planters. A five-gallon bucket fits neatly inside the smallest one with the top edge even with the planter's lip, and that planter fits inside the bigger one. This opens up a lot of possibilities for the inventive gardeners among us who swear by those free pickle buckets.

The planters are more like cache pots, without drainage holes. You could drill holes, but it would be better to use an interior pot (like the black ones that your plants come in at the nursery) set on top of some stones or gravel. I filled them both up with water to see if they will hold the water. Yes. These won't leak all over your deck or inside the house; you just need to be sure whatever pot you use on the inside has suitable drainage.

I'm thinking one or both of these planters could be used to construct a beautiful water feature using an aquarium pump--although I wouldn't take chances by not reinforcing the inside with pond liner material. The planters have a wide lip that makes them look very thick, even though they are not, and would look very appealing with water flowing over the edge.

Yes, they are lovely to look at, and they are well priced compared to what one has to pay at a gardening center for larger planters. They aren't much heavier than the faux concrete pots of the same size. Based on the material they are made from, I don't know how hot they would get in a sunny location and don't have a sunny spot myself to test them in. Depending on what part of the country you live in, heat building up in the metal could be either a good thing or a bad thing. Being a darker grey color, I would expect they would absorb and hold heat.

Very nice. Even a person who does not garden at all could use them as classy executive wastepaper or magazine baskets!

Size Name: Round Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have similar planters from this company and they have held up well as cache pots when lined with plastic bags. There are no drainage holes and the metal might rust with standing water, so that is the best way to use them long term. If you put a plastic saucer on the bottom (not necessary, but a good backup) and add a double layer of plastic garbage bags, you have the perfect cover for the ugly black plastic pots that most houseplants come in. Then either take the plant out to water it or leave enough room between the plant and the pot to make sure you are not killing your plant by drowning it in standing water. I also add an additional clear plastic saucer outside of the decorative pot to be certain that I will not ruin my floor with leaks. Although they are watertight now, I have learned the hard way not trust anything long-term on my new carpet.

The dark metal adds a nice, finished touch to any plant without stealing the focus. I expect to buy a few more of these to replace other style of planters that just don't look very good now these have arrived.

They are being marketed as outdoor planters. I don't recommend them for that use unless you want to drill drainage holes in the bottom and understand that they will not last as long. I also would caution against using them in the hot sun as heat build-up could damage the roots of sensitive plants (as well as increase the water requirements).

Planters look great in person and are exactly what I wanted for my ponytail palms. Would've received 5 stars except the metal is thin (still very sturdy) and when my big dog tipped over a half-filled pot, two of the seams separated along the rim. It still looks great though--the separation isn't visible unless you're standing right over the pot. I'd estimate there's easily 50 lbs. of rock and dirt in the smaller pot and it has no issues with being moved around, picked up by grabbing the rim, etc. Will definitely purchase another set in the future.

. . . they rust out after just one West Michigan winter. Not durable at all. I only recommend for indoor use or in Florida.

First of all, we bought these for two reasons: A) Their size/shape and B) Their finish.
To those that were disappointed by either one, all I can say is that both are accurately depicted in the item's description; no big surprises.

With that being said, what I will say about them dimensionally is that the smaller (18x8) planter is proportionally taller, with a proportionally smaller opening than its larger mate. Combine that with the fact that the smaller planter has the same 3/4" lip around its opening that the larger planter has, and I could see where some might be caught off guard by its "petite-ness".

In general, the planters are made from a thin-gauge sheet metal that frankly makes me wonder why they're $60 (3/13) for the pair. However thin the metal though, they seem mostly well made: it appears they're formed from five pieces of sheet metal (four pieces for the sides and one piece for the bottom) with each seam being welded where the four side pieces fold over to form the planter's lip. I can't tell how each piece is joined to the other along the sides of the planter (or at the bottom), but there are overlapping joints here. My guess is they're brazed (like copper plumbing) or bonded to each other. In a nice touch, the only exposed edge of the sheet metal (on the underside of the lip) is finished to avoid coming into contact with a sharp edge...that alone may be worth the $60. The only other thing I'll say about the quality is that none of the four planters we received are perfectly flat on the bottom (verified on a piece of ceramic tile); some less plumb than others. This isn't a huge deal for me as the planters will basically just sit in one spot, but it may be of concern to others.

As nearly everyone else has noted, no drain holes.
