This Modern Trough Planter is a classic and highly functional garden form. Use these large commercial planters to create separation by defining outdoor "rooms" or depth in your garden by creating "layers" of planting by placing them perpendicular across your garden's view.
The large outdoor planters are made of lightweight fiberglass with a durable exterior. These trough planters are available in standard Matte Grey, Charcoal Grey or customized in any RAL colors.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do your planters have internal shelves?
Not for our stock sized planters, but we make a custom shelf for all the custom made metal planters. Or, you can add non-biodegradable material in the base of the planter to decrease the amount of growing media needed.
If you prefer a fiberglass planter, we suggest using a non-biodegradable material in the base of the planter, like packing peanuts, then layer with landscape fabric followed by the recommended soil.
What is the lead time for planters?
We strive to meet your specific requested date. Please let us know when you need the planters delivered by, and then we can work backward from your date. Lead times vary from 1 week to 4 months depending, on the material of the planter, current stock availability, and whether or not it is a custom project. For your convenience, we have outlined general timelines per brand.
If you need something rushed or if you would like a custom-designed planter, please contact us, and we will see if we can work with you to meet your deadline.

Do you provide custom colors? Do custom colors cost more?
Yes, and usually.
The material you have chosen will dictate the options of color available to you.
At PureModern, we spray most fiberglass planters with automotive-grade paint. We prefer using BASF for its highly resistant and durable finish. If you provide any RAL, Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore, or your favorite paint company color code, we will match it.
For powder-coated aluminum, we prefer TIGER Drylac® Series 38 powder coating. Color options will depend on your application, whether interior or exterior. TIGER Drylac® is VOC-free and made for industrial applications such as military equipment and communication towers.
It is also proven to be weather and UV-ray resistant. According to the manufacturer, “Based on 5-year Florida exposure, TIGER Drylac® Series 38 exhibits 5.0 (Hunter) color change and > 30% gloss retention.” Finally, TIGER Drylac® Series 38 also complies with the American Architectural Manufacturing Association’s specification AAMA 2604.
We are happy to send you a brochure showing the color options when requested.
As far as price goes, it depends on the size of the order and what color and desired finish is selected. There are certain pigments that are more expensive than others.
