Concrete is a fantastic material and very much in trend at the moment for hone and garden projects. However, in the garden and for use as planters there are various points to consider;
Concrete is heavy, hard and costly to move around, easy to damage, hard to drill drainage holes into after they have been made and, without knowing if the concrete has been cured properly, there is a chance it will affect the soil quality over time.
These Fibreglass planters however look like the real thing - a smooth concrete effect finish - but with all the benefits of GRP : Lightweight yet extremely tough, easy to move around, easy to drill, completely frost proof, UV fade proof, rust proof..... fairly indestructible
Real Concrete is also porous resulting in quick water evaporation in hot weather and potential drying out of plant roots (or a lot of watering needed) , GRP is non-permeable so less affected by external conditions.
Choose here from a range of Cube planters and troughs but please note we can get the concrete effect made in most of our fibreglass planters so please call if you would like a qute for a different size or shaped planter
