Wash Tub Planters

Choose from the largest selection of wash tub planters. Galvanized steel planters are available in many sizes and shapes for indoor and outdoor container gardening. Planting in galvanized steel is an easy way to create a beautiful yet durable garden that will last decades. A wash tub planter is durable, long-lasting, lightweight and arrives ready for planting. Best of all? A DIY galvanized metal planter project is one you can easily complete over a weekend! Once your washtub arrives, the manufacturer label can easily be removed with a hair dryer.
