Whilst concrete is a perfect medium for planters, there are some guidelines that need to be followed to ensure the structural integrity of your planter is maintained.
The roots of plants and trees cause destruction to even the hardest of material – like concrete. Whilst you can plant directly into you planter if you wish, the weight and pressure of the soil can cause damage and cracking so for these reasons it is recommended that plants are contained in plastic pots and placed inside the concrete pot. This process also assists should you need to move your pot.
Our Round Planters come with drainage holes. Our Cylinder Planters do not – the idea being that you could turn them over and use them as a stool if you like.
Our Grey and White Wash Planters are suitable for indoor or outdoor use.
Our Terrazzo and Painted Design Planters can be used outdoors however we recommend they be kept out of the elements for the longevity of the look of your planter.
All of our Homewares are handmade, one-off pieces so will look slightly different to the ones pictured. Air bubbles and surface imperfections are all part of concretes organic nature. Variations in the design and finish are what makes each piece unique.
Whilst our Concrete Homewares are made for decorative use, they are suitable for dry foods. To clean, wipe over with a warm, damp cloth. Do not place in the oven or dishwasher.
Our Concrete Homewares are strong and durable but should be treated like ceramic as they can break or chip if dropped or knocked against a hard surface.
