Planter Box Seat

Central Streets, Geelong

The planter-box seats were the first design to be funded as part of the Mayors incoming promise to green the streets of Geelong. 32 of the planters were installed through-out three main streets. The double height boxes are perfect for extra seating in the city and provide a fun, consistent theme.

In the past we have had difficulty with planters, as the root-balls and plants dry-out due to the small amount of soil surrounding them. These planters have large soil content and can accomodate trees and perennials. The planters come in different seating sizes and configurations, without greatly affecting the cost.
