Our customer loved our planters so much they’ve ordered a second batch of these!

 

There were a variety of Towik and Barrier planters in which we planted with a variety of our spectacular artificial plants and sealed in so they would be secure in the planters. We finished off the hand-made planters with logos that were each specifically designed to work best on each individual planter thanks to our in house design team.

 

Do you have a customer who would like something like this? We can help you!


 

We can show you how the finished outcome will look before the job has even began with our composite imaging service (£25+VAT per image) and this can help sell eye-catching jobs to your clients so that can visualise your idea. The £25 is reclaimable when the client orders the planters.

We can provide a wide range of artificial plants, our catalogue can be found here , and we can source almost anything so if you can’t find it in our catalogue then just ask and we’ll get on it! We are continually adding to our ranges.

 

 

We can seal in the planting so that it can be instantly installed with no fuss, these can even be sent direct to the client for even easier installation. No need for you to have all the COSHH assessments and data sheets for the chemicals used. We have everything needed right here.


Logos can be applied to any of our planters with ease as we have a professional sign maker within our talented team who can apply whatever our design team size up on our in-house design programmes. There are no limit to the possibilities that you can achieve with our planters; so if you have an idea, no matter how small or how large, then we will endeavour to accomplish everything that you wish to make a superb installation using the UK’s largest manufacturer of GRP planters.

Flame Red Bills at Paris Montparnasse

Just four out of 12 Bill 04 Tree planters, 1m in diameter for French Railways, SNCF.

 


Finished in textured Flame Red. These beautiful pots have been made using fire retardant resins and gels to achieve the M1 French fire retardant standard, similar to UK Class 0. All our planters can be similarly specified to be made in these materials giving specifiers unlimited design options for public areas where flame retardant products are essential. Despite having to make this more complex laminate, Livingreen managed to meet a tight deadline for customer Ambius France, delivering the completed job to France 13 working days after the order was placed.

 


 

The planters are now installed at the Paris station Montparnasse. Clearly they are taking no chances in ordering them in flame retardant materials as this is very same station made famous by the 1895 steam train crash. The Granville-Paris Express overran the platform within the station as it was trying to make up for lost time. It was travelling at such a high speed that it careered through a 60cm (2ft) thick wall, shot across a terrace, smashed out the station’s window and plummeted 10m (33ft) below onto the Place de Rennes; and killing an innocent woman below. Due to the negligence of the engine driver, the railway company paid for the woman’s funeral and provided a pension to look after her children. The picture though world famous with a reproduction in ‘real life’ as the frontspiece of a museum chain in Brazil – something for the football supporters perhaps!
