What will use to fill the bottom of a large commercial planter?
For a large commercial planter, the interior usually is large and deep. If you fill a large planter with soil, not only is the soil expensive, but it’s heavy, and it isn’t good for the growth of plants:
Easy to accumulate water;
Poor air permeability;
Difficult to judge wet or dry.
In fact, you can also use many other materials, and these materials can play a good role, to ensure that potted plants or trees continue to grow. Whether you are using a large commercial planter for a smaller plant or a large tree, in most cases, you do not need to fill the whole planter with potting soil. You only need to understand the depth required for potted plants’ roots, leave enough space to add enough soil for a good root system. Then, you can choose a filler for the remaining space.
If you want to place the large planter on the balcony and other places where weight may be problematic or move the planter frequently, you can choose a lighter filler.
