Frequently Asked Questions
Do you make custom planters?
Yes, we specialize in custom commercial planters.
For example, our Modern Elite Aluminum Planters, which are made of marine-grade aluminum, and then powder-coated, can be fabricated in as little as 1 week.
However, we don't think that you should have to settle for something other than what your project space demands. After all, our tag line is "Your vision. Our containers." We care about making your vision come to life.
This is why we are very proud to offer custom planters to help you meet your project needs. We can customize the size, color, and shape of your planter.
Specifically, we offer both aluminum and fiberglass planter customization. Aluminum provides us the most flexibility as we are able to create custom shapes with short lead times.
We can also customize the shape of fiberglass planters. However, due to additional steps that have to be taken for fiberglass planters, the lead time will be longer.

How do you fill a planter?
There is a lot of information about how to properly fill a planter. However, we recommend the following process:
1.) Make sure the planter is level and is elevated above the area it is sitting upon to prevent condensation.
2.) Add a filler that is not biodegradable, if the planter is considerably larger than the space needed for the plant to grow.
3.) Place landscape fabric to separate the filler from the soil and allow excess water from a possible over-saturated soil to leave the roots.
4.) Add about 6 inches of soil. Make sure the soil you use is appropriate for the plant. Then, tamp down, add more soil, and repeat.
5.) Add Plant sipper, if desired.
6.) Add the plant, more soil, and then wet the soil.
7.) Leave about an inch space between the top of the soil and the top of the planter

How to reduce the effects of graffiti on metal planters?
If your planters are in a spot where they may get painted with unwanted images, use the Series 44 - Anti-graffiti Tiger DryLac. This is a coating for metal with anti-graffiti properties that allow for easy cleaning should your planters get graffitied.
The planter in question would be first powder coated with the selected color and then the anti-graffiti clear coat is sprayed on the planter after.

With PureModern commercial planters and containers, you can achieve both of these goals.
Modern commercial planters are dynamic pieces. They can have a big impact on your space in a variety of ways, like using greenery to add a touch of vibrancy and life, evenly distributing visual weight, tying together a design theme, or creating division within an existing area.
