Set of Three Large, Heavy English Triangular Cast Stone Planters
We love unusual forms in the garden and these very large and heavy triangular planters do not disappoint. In very good vintage condition with a beautifully- weathered and greening patina (the beginning of moss), they will develop a mossy surface over time if placed in a damp and shady location. Their commodious planting wells can handle pretty much any type of planting and they have a slightly raised circular foot underneath so that the drain hole is not in direct contact with the ground. WIth a heavily-weathered aggregate pebble edge, the triangular shape has beveling to each corner side for added visual interest. Each weighs in at around 200 lbs. Wonderful grouped together in the courtyard of a contemporary home, or use a pair to flank and entranceway and the third raised up on a low pedestal as the focal point in a garden. The thick-walled construction of these planters allows them to be left outside year-round even in the harshest of climates, provided they are installed on a concrete footing or piece of stone, emptied of dirt (and their drain-hole kept open) and covered with a piece of wood to prevent ice dams.
