So our deck is done for the most part but I want to have planters! I want to add some floral pop to the deck and make it a bit of an oasis. Right now, I'm trying to decide which one will be the best for our upstairs deck. Whether you like them low and long or high in the air. Right now I'm debating on ceramics, wood and steel - it's a matter of what look you're going for on the deck.
