So that's roof gardens taken care of, now let's get back down to earth and look at some great reasons to use these great natural wooden products on a lower and potentially more commercial level.

Quality planters, ideal for commercial applications and residential designs

Wooden planters and troughs are often a preferred alternative to more traditional landscaping designs for a number of reasons.

  • They provide a fresh and more sophisticated appearance can be developed as soon as the properties are 'on the market', whereas traditional landscaping can look a tad bleak until it becomes established
  • Natural wooden planters and troughs blend well with the landscape and are easily integrated into communal areas where tenants are likely to congregate and spend leisure time
  • Larger planters offer natural separation between different communal areas, i.e. parking, walkways, gardens and lawn
  • The planter or trough installations create minimal disturbance as the project comes to an end, where as traditional landscaping can involve lots of plant and machinery
  • Well positioned planters and troughs are more easily maintained over the long term and the functioning lawns, paths and parking areas are more easily tended and kept cleanHigh quality planters and troughs for quality new build developments

The best thing about the planters and troughs we provide our customers is that our suppliers can build anything you want and they only use the very best materials.
