I really hope these hold up in the salt air of the back of my house! I live on the water and have bought a bunch of these to go along the sea wall that leads down to the dock. They look really nice and feel really sturdy and well made. What's even better is that they look really nice with the furniture we have put out there. I like that they have legs and feet and aren't just the huge puts sitting on the ground. They also match the rectangular shaped ones that I have put up on our patio to use as space dividers. They are big enough to hold our larger plants, but aren't so big that I can't move them around by myself. I am really happy that I purchase these and would definitely recommend them to others who are looking for outdoor planters. These are great to get your plants up off the ground and add some style and class to them. I also liked that they weren't crazy expensive, their price seemed like it was fair for what you were purchasing.
