We have had many enquiries for a raised planter troughs and with some design tweeks we have come up with this strong, made-to-last version.
It will stand wherever you want a feature flower display, a vegetable bed or maybe a convenient and accessible herb garden.
At a height of 30" it makes planting, tending and pruning, and harvesting much more user friendly than the original planter range.
Deep enough to accommodate root crops, like potatoes and to support specimen shrubs like buxus/box topiary or bamboo screening and small trees
The planting level to 30" allows easy level planting, maintenance and harvesting.
We line these troughs with strong plastic waterproof membrane to keep dampness away from the internal timber and thus reduce the chances of rot and decay. The preserved timber is expected to last at least 15 years and longer if retreated with a proprietary brand outdoor timber preservative. Holes or slits will need to cut into the lining to allow drainage. When asked to fill and plant this troughs we cut many leaf shaped drainage holes to allow as much drainage as possible while still protecting the timber from soil and dampness.
They come in either natural pine (natural, no treatment necessary) or a dark oak (stain) or painted in Farrow and Ball Downpipe (finished with primer and 2 coats of a microporous commercial grade exterior paint).
