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, super lightweight mill finish aluminium.

IMPORTANT – The Aluminium will be scratched as the metal is very soft, and the shine can make this obvious, however this is the nature of using recycled, repurposed material.
Any marks from the mill will of course make your planter unique, and a one off.

Minky make a great soft cloth which I use to polish the aluminium to a high shine, a drop of baby oil really works wonders as does WD40.

This planter has the option to add a detachable loose fitting black rubber safety edge on the top rim, this can be secured with the use of super glue, or it will shrink to fit nicely over time if out in the sun.
The rear of the planter 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.

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. If you require drainage holes I recommend a standard household drill, then you file the sharp edges off and dap a spot of clear nail varnish or super glue around the exposed metal to minimise the contact with water over time.
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.
