Wooden planters can look great in outdoor settings. They are not likely to crack in cold weather and are slow to dry out. The only real danger with wood containers is rot, use plastic liners.
Concrete planters can look great, especially once they’ve aged a little. While concrete is the practical choice for large plants that might need the ballast support against the wind. They are heavy and difficult to move.
