Wood is a precious commodity today and to be cherished, and sourced carefully from sustainable forests. It also is a very sought after for all sorts of garden products, and planters and containers are just one category where wood can become a beautiful and long lasting alternative to terracotta or other materials.
Catriona McLean has found a Belgian producer of quality designed and made contemporary yet traditional ranges of containers and planters.
Using oak or tropical hardwood (all from sustainable sources) these planters have standard sizes available, but can be made to specification and also painted using RAL colours, if desired to suit a client's colour scheme. Oak planters look superb if left to naturally weather, taking on their particular and most beautiful hues of silver - grey. These planters can be shipped worldwide.
