A contemporary planter, which will contrast well against the soft contours of the box balls, bamboos, hostas and various soft petals of wild flowers & leaves in your garden or on your patio.
The planters are fantastic on your drive, your rooftop garden, patio, surrounding the hot tub, to match or contrast your static or touring caravan these hard wearing, metal planters add that splash of colour, and of course I don't sell to garden centres, I make the majority to order, so these aren't mass produced you can be assured that not everyone in your neighbourhood will own them as well!
The material is 0.7mm gauge, high quality roofing material (the stuff you see on industrial roofs & cladded side walls) it is either plastisol coated with a leather grain effect or a powder coated smooth polyester finish. Some colours are only available in certain finishes.
Each planter has a small safety edge on the top rim, it is hand riveted in place with matching rivets (if available otherwise plain uncoated ones are used) on the two back seams, the base can be riveted in place ,or the 3 unsecured sides can be left loose.
They are are of a sturdy construction, being all coated steel however NOT waterproof.
If you require additional drainage holes to be drilled this can be done, alternatively if you require it to be waterproof, I would recommend you line the inside with a pond liner prior to planting.
The planter in stock and available for immediate despatch is Cornflower Blue, as pictured, however other colours are available, as are other quantities.

All of the planters are handmade, in Grantham Lincolnshire using prime industrial roofing materials, many are made from material which would of otherwise been destined for the scrap metal bin, this does mean the the finished item may have the odd scratch or dent but nothing detrimental to its planter use, these off cuts are from the roofing sheets, and cladding materials which we supply to both the general public and the industrial roofing trade.
Items made from metal which otherwise would of been scrapped are photographed, and available for immediate despatch, the prices also reflect the reduced cost of the raw material.
This one does have a couple of marks sporadically in the material but I felt it was too pretty to be scrapped, and deserves a second chance.
I make this point, because I am more than happy to accept custom requests for bespoke sizes and colours, but it must be understood that I may have to use prime material (not off cuts) which will impact the cost of the item.
