Downtown Seattle has a bit of everything: the hustle and bustle of the city backdropped by a tranquil waterfront. In the heart of the action lies Second Avenue, with its many high-rise apartments and condos that overlook the surrounding skyscrapers and nearby Elliott Bay. So when award-winning landscape designer, Scot Eckley, contact us for custom planters to use in his downtown terrace garden project, we knew they had to fit in with the landscape in both style and function.
The Modern Planter: Sleek and Streamlined
Since Eckley had previously used Planters Unlimited for his design projects, he was familiar with our custom manufacturing capabilities and the durability of our products. To house trees and greenery for his terrace garden, he chose to use our Modern Square Fiberglass planters in a contemporary Pearl Matte finish. Simple and streamlined, our Modern Planter collection is our most popular collection due to its modern style and versatility of design—including the choice of six planter shapes (including low bowl and custom styles), 25 marine-grade paint colors, and four finishes that include high-gloss and sand textures. They can also be fully customized for any design project.
Light Enough for Terraces, Balconies, and Rooftops
The Modern Square planters used for this project were made large enough to house trees, their root systems, and soil, without being too heavy for placement on a terrace. And since our Modern planters are made of the lighter-weight fiberglass material, landscape designers often prefer using them over heavier materials for projects like terraces, rooftops, and balconies—where weight needs to be considered as part of the design.
Durable, All-Weather Outdoor Planters
Another reason that landscape designers like Eckley love the Modern fiberglass planter is for its unparalleled durability in outdoor applications. These stylish yet sturdy planters withstand all types of weather (including frost conditions) without chipping, cracking, splitting, warping, or rotting. This is especially important for places like Seattle, where notoriously rainy weather makes it difficult for outdoor furnishings to maintain their beauty and construct. All of our fiberglass planters, including our Modern collection, stand up beautifully to years of dramatic temperatures and climate stressors.
Completely Customizable for Your Space
At Planters Unlimited, we work with designers and other trade professionals to create landscape solutions that complement their designs and are fully functional for the needs of the space. This includes customizing our commercial-grade products to fit the designers’ needs. Because of our years of experience providing these needs, we have the ability to provide high-quality custom planters and landscape amenities in a shorter lead time than our competitors.
Modern planters are available in round, square, rectangular, low bowl, and tapered designs. They can also be made to be self-watering, and leak proof (with matching drip trays and drainage holes) for indoor applications. Locking casters can be added for stabilization and ease of mobility.
