The Ultimate Guide to Our Wooden Planters


Posh planters for pretty paths and patios

A wooden planter is the perfect way to complement the design of an outdoor living space. Our planters are a great choice for creating different levels of planting and adding a dramatic feature to your garden or house entrance. They are also ideal for edging patios, decked areas or balconies and terraces. In this guide we explore the various considerations to make when you are incorporating our planters into your exterior design schemes.

Contemporary or Traditional

Our Prestige wooden planters are available in contemporary and traditional designs. They are relatively low maintenance and hand made in our workshop with a bespoke quality to create a beautiful and stylish feature in your outdoor space. They beautifully complement our Prestige range of trellis, fencing and gates which is endorsed by the RHS.

Painted or natural

You can decide to have your planters in their natural timber or choose between 10 paint colours. They are prepared and dried in temperature controlled conditions using a special exterior paint to ensure a consistent, smooth, and durable finish.

Square or rectangular?

Select a design between square or rectangular planters to fit the various spaces in your garden. These designs are also available in our Prestige range. Add a square planter for a patio feature and a rectangular planter for an interesting component to your outdoor living space.

Decorative touches

Indulge in some decorative touches for your planters. The Versailles Planters have ball finials for an elegant feature or you might decide on a cross detailed panel for an attractive element in your garden. You can also choose to bring your garden scheme together by having matching finials for the fencing or trellis in your garden.

Add trellis for climbers

Why not have some trellis for climbers to provide additional screening and planting areas with room and support for climbing plants to grow and flourish. Add a new dimension to your outdoor space with a trellis obelisk that has a unique design to allow easy maintenance of your plants.
