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. The rubber trim is purely decorative, it is loose fitting so if you wish to secure it a dab of glue works well, or alternatively if used outdoors the sun will over time meld the rubber to the metal. It does help keep water from above being in contact with the small amount of exposed metal running along the top.
The back and base of the planter are 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.

They are strong and sturdy, with built in drainage, as the bottom is “loose” on 3 edges to allow free flowing drainage to virtually all edges. (The longer planters to aid stability I may add a couple of rivets in the base)

Additional holes can drilled by using a household drill, I do suggest that you file the sharp edges and then a dab of clear glue / nail varnish or paint just to protect the newly exposed metal from any water draining through.

Another way to extend the life of the planter I recommend is to line it prior to planting. If you chose to line in a pond liner is fabulous for the job, but tin foil / gro-bags / bathroom sealant and other similar products work 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.

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.
All planters are handmade so please allow for a small degree of tolerance in respect of measurements.
