Bespoke Dhow Buxus Hedge Planters

Last year we released some new and exciting planter ranges – the largest of these ranges in variants of sizes and for the largest planter available is the Dhow. We had an order for 3 of our Dhow6 planters, these are highly impressive in size in their own right - 1830x400x775mm, and to make the planters even more exciting we were required to add some bespoke buxus hedges to the planters. The colour of the planters were required to be kept simple so that they could be used in order to work with the natural environment that they’re in, not detract from it. The buxus hedge was created using a glass fibre frame so that it would be strong, stable and wouldn’t rot away. We finished 2 planters in our textured brilliant white and the final planter in our textured jet black. Each planter was filled up on site with weighting so that these boats wouldn’t rock!


 

 

 


Once the planters were installed we took a visit to take some photographs of the bespoke hedge planters in position of some of these lovely new homes. We think that these planters bring a great sense of elegance and style to the environment. We are happy with the final results of these planters and believe that these hedges bring an extra special element to the final site’s design – the contractor is delighted with the final planters as they believe they incredibly well manufactured and capture the branding style of their client down to a tee!

Now that’s impressive!


 

Here’s a sneak peak of an ongoing project at Edinburgh Airport which we just couldn’t wait to show you. By combining our 1.5m white replica Flowerbombe cone with a standard polished black Kubik, our customer has created an incredible 2.3m fantasy, absolutely perfect for a stunning entrance way. Complimenting this are beautiful 4 ball eucalyptus topiary in the main restaurant areas and soon to be joined by 18m of mixed artificial lavender based troughing – updates to follow!

 

In this case as with most of our replica work, we carried out all the planting up, sealing them in with resin coated slate for the perfect finish. The completed units were then delivered to site for our customer to place – no effort required and an amazing result!


 

Why not join the growing legion of landscapers taking advantage of our replica plant up and delivery service? No chemicals, no mess, no effort and for minimal extra cost. Delivery to your customer’s site even saves you the cost of getting the units and plants to your own site if you were doing the work. So its win win all round.

 

Remember we offer a unique range of stunningly beautiful replica, all sharply contemporary and perfect for the modern urban environment. We can supply FR treated and also in FR rated pots. And we are big in Buxus! Try us for your next replica box hedge quotes – we offer pre built hedges integral to the plater in any size, height, length or shape – including curves.

If you were up early enough on Sunday to watch ‘The Andrew Marr Show’ on BBC1 you would have seen a guest appearance made by our Easter Island planters. They were sitting in the cabinet office alongside Andrew and Lord O’Donell (Cabinet Secretary 2005-2011) while they were discussing the constitution and the part it can play in a hung parliament. So you can be safe in the knowledge that no matter who you vote for tomorrow Livingreen Design will keep its place (by the window) in the cabinet office!


 

 

Clearly the Government knows a thing or two about cutting edge design, as our exclusive Easter Island range has become ever more popular, and you can check out the full range on our website here for the planters http://www.livingreendesign.com/category/37-grp-easter-island-planter.aspx and here for the barrier http://www.livingreendesign.com/category/38-grp-easter-island-barrier-planter.aspx. There are many possibilities of combinations that can be created using the 3 different planters we have available.
