The planters are fantastic on your window, rooftop, patio, drive, balcony, anywhere you need a splash of colour! No need to spend hours weeding, turning soil or digging.
These hard wearing, recycled, repurposed roofing sheets have become unique handmade metal planters add that splash of colour.
The material is 0.7mm gauge, high quality coated roofing material (usually seen on industrial roofs & cladded side walls).
This planter has the option to add a detachable black rubber safety edge on the top rim, it is hand riveted in place with matching rivets. I do my utmost to file all sharp edges but please do take care if purchasing without the rubber trim.
The Anthracite colour is a dark colour, leather grain effect coating called “plastisol”, The RAL colour is 7016.
I can offer a similar colour in a smooth finish which is Slate Blue, its British Standard reference is 18B29. The polyester does scratch /stuff more easily than the Plastisol Leather grain effect finish so if it comes to me in a protective film I will leave that in situ for you to peal off prior to planting for maximum protection.
They are strong and sturdy, with built in drainage. The base is loose on 3 sides to allow all round drainage.
To extend the life of the planter I do recommend lining it prior to planting but that is personal choice. If you chose to line in a pond liner is fabulous for the job, but tin foil works just as well.
Gardeners grit, a layer of leaves, moss anything to add texture and nutrients are great as a base layer before the soil, then add plants and layer up again with soil, leaves, moss and watch your mini garden thrive.
POSTAGE – I am so sorry but I am not able to post any order over 1m (100cm) in length to Scottish Highlands, Isle of Man, Isle of Wight or Northern Ireland due to postage limitations which Etsy is unable to incorporate in our settings. Please do message me as I do have some options and can provide a personalised quotation.
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.
