We were asked by a local Garden Design company in Edinburgh, Twig Garden Design, to help them create a set of bespoke corten steel effect planting beds. These planting beds were created especially for a balcony in the heart of Edinburgh’s Quartermile district. Twig supplied us with this envisaged idea and our technical team helped to create 3D drawing of the planters in question. These planters were created in our rust (corten steel) finish as creating the planter out of real metal would have caused some real problems as they were to be planted on a small balcony and weight was a real issue. As well as the corten steel planters were asked to create a set of barriers with cut-outs so they could be placed over existing lighting on the balcony structure.

The planters were created on time and within the budget set and collected by the Twig Garden Design team who said they loved them as soon as they saw them.

 

 

Now that the job has been completed we have been given these beautiful photographs to show what the finished planters look like all planted up. The bespoke corten steel planters look magnificently rugged alongside the sharp, modern design of the furniture and surrounding balcony structure. It makes it appear that there is a small rural piece of land on the balcony in the heart of a busy city. The barriers look exquisite at night with the lights shining in the alcoves of the cut-outs, it is amazing what you can achieve with a simple design.

Looking back on our time at Coblands Trade Show Open Days

It’s been two weeks since the Coblands Trade Show finished and we’re getting back into the swing of things at Livingreen Design. We met a large number of excited garden designers and landscapers who loved our products; and the rides around the nursery in golf buggies. It was a wonderful opportunity to listen to our potential customers and find out what they really need from a planter supplier and the limitless potential that our planters can bring to their designs. It was a highly enjoyable experience which provided us with space to promote our planters in the south of England; for those that couldn’t make it to our showroom in Edinburgh to see our new ranges. We hope that everyone loved having a sneak peek at our new planters (that we are going to be launching very soon) as much as we enjoyed presenting our work. Finally, a big thank you to everyone that came to visit us and also to Coblands Nurseries for having us at their Tonbridge Nursery. Watch this space for our new ranges.
