The bench seats on the planter are made from a sustainable and durable IPE wood which is sourced from well managed FSC® regionally certified woods.

Planter Bench Finish Options:
The marine grade aluminum alloy used to make the Planter Bench is light weight, exceptionally strong, and guarantees a long lasting, rust and maintenance free product. This material is the perfect solution for highly corrosive environments, or for placement on porous or easily stained surfaces. Available in 8 standard powder coat finishes as well as the oxidized zinc patina finish which is a proprietary process where the raw aluminum is allowed to patina resembling an old-world zinc finish.
CorTen, or weathering steel, planters and benches are made from .074” thick 606 alloy Cor-Ten steel. Common in architectural elements, this steel alloy is used for its unique rustic appearance and protective weathering qualities. This ultra durable material is perfect for all indoor or outdoor environments, as well as for commercial projects. Corten products are available only in a natural rust patina finish, and will continue to patina and change over time.
The Mild steel planters and benches are made from .074” thick hot rolled mild steel. Mild steel offers a very durable and cost effective solution, is valued for its unique rustic appearance, and will continue to patina and change over time. This ultra durable metal is perfect for all indoor or outdoor environments, as well as for commercial projects. Mild steel products are available only in a natural rust patina finish.
Note: Natural rust patina planters and benches will transfer color to light colored or porous surfaces. They are not recommended in areas where surface staining is a concern.
The metal planter is made for year round use. It is fabricated with 1”drain holes unless otherwise specified, and is designed to be directly planted into, does not require grow pots or liners. Please let us know at the time of order if you do not want drain holes or need custom drainage options.
