Garden Planters: Handmade and Planted. Dublin, Ireland.

These garden planters were hand made in Dublin, Ireland.

Marked to measure using a pencil & a set square – old school – and precision cut & trimmed. The planters made from recycled timber – by client request on this occasion, were then twice sanded using a block of wood and sand paper and screwed together – very important in Irish weather and finally, hand painted twice – for added protection – in Henry Ford’s favourite colour. 

Subsequently they were lined inside with a semi permeable membrane – just a centimeter below the surface level; filled with Irish compost and planted with plants hand selected by yours truly, all of which were grown in Ireland.

  • To more serious matters, you may prefer your planting a little different
  • and that, like preferring The Bay City Rollers over Bob Dylan, is very much allowed
  • in fact these planters contain fruiting bushes, herbaceous plants, herbs, scent and flower
  • the knowing that, makes me smile. And that, is a very (very very) good thing.
