Landscaping trends show the growing popularity of container gardening, and planters are evolving to be more than simple vessels — these objects can provide an artistic touch to your garden.
Cast concrete containers are in demand, especially on the West Coast. The material is popular for its durability in all climates, as well as the muted, natural palette it can bring to a garden or patio.
Victoria-based Landscape Furnishings create three types of striking pots and planters — conventional precast concrete, ornamental hand cast and ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC). Each brings different characteristics and advantages.
The conventional precast concrete containers utilize local materials and state-of-the-art admixtures for durable freeze and thaw-resistant products with a quality finish.
The hand-cast/hand-finished series offers unique, sculptural containers. The production technique is reminiscent of Venetian plaster and traditional ceramic processes.
The minimalistic and durable UHPC containers are especially suited for rooftop decks, where planters can be exposed to strong winds and weather conditions, but also need to be light enough to move into place.
