There are three good reasons to use baskets as planters. One is that they’re pretty, and they’ll look good in your garden. The woven material gives your outdoor space a rustic look. Plus, they come in bright colors that would cheer up your yard.
Two, they’re durable. They can last a long time as garden planters. You don’t have to worry about them rotting right away. It will take years before they do.
Three, they are woven so they already have holes. This means, you no longer have to punch holes on the bottom part of the basket for drainage.
