The planters used for this project were custom made to complement the landscape design and were required to be perfectly watertight, with a single drainage point created via a drainage pop in order to prevent water damage to the wooden deck. The planters also needed to be lightweight and sturdy to ensure they added the minimum amount of weight possible to the deck but were still strong enough for long-term use.
The Geo Rok range from Martin Kellock Pots & Planters is constructed of fibreglass reinforced cement, making them well suited to the project requirements of the Hawthorn development. Both lightweight and heavy duty, Geo Rok pots and planters are ideal for any commercial or domestic landscaping design. Twice as strong as fibreglass and much lighter than concrete, they are also UV and water penetration resistant. The materials used in the Geo Rok range are ideally suited to the construction of large containers, making them strong enough to withstand the requirements of most projects.
As the planters were one of the last things to be installed at the Hawthorn project, they had to be craned to the top. Two years later they are looking great and still standing strong!
