The concrete pots have particular shapes and their dimensions vary both in width and height. Depending on the way they are used, they can furnish any type of environment, from modern to classic, giving it style, elegance or simplicity. They are very resistant and can be left in their natural state, where the concrete will be rough and rough, or processed with special products to make them smooth. Usually in specialized stores, they are sold in their natural state, so you can paint them, cover them with pebbles or customize them with various decorations according to your skills, needs and intended use. The concrete vases can only be used as an embellishment, placing pots of other material inside them, or to place the soil inside them with plants or flowers, of any kind, considering that the close contact with the concrete will not cause them any pathology. The size of the pots must always be considered based on the size of the plant to be placed inside, and its growth. In fact, if too small plants are inserted in a large pot, they would create aesthetic problems as well as functional problems such as repotting and pruning. Before making a wrong choice, it is advisable to communicate the size and species of the plant to be planted to the nursery, avoiding subsequent problems. Usually these vases are used as dividing objects, together with concrete planters, to divide some garden spaces, to define private spaces on public land or to highlight walkways. Being very heavy pots to move, it is preferable to place them in places where they can remain for a long time, as once filled they are very difficult to move manually, especially if they are large.
