The Thatched Lattice Cube Planter is an artfully edged display of traditional criss-cross lattice-work constructed of high-tech lightweight materials.
Each contemporary planter is made with a durable fiberglass structure and fused with metals which will age gracefully over time and develop a soft patina.
Each cube planter can be ordered in a range of metal finishes, including: Bronze, Copper, and Matte Black (Zinc). You can also order your contemporary planter in a range of custom metal finishes, including: Stainless Steel, Cast Iron and Brass. Your cube planter can also be matched to any existing color in Matte or Glossy finishes. *Please allow up to 12 weeks lead time for cube planters in custom finishes and colors.
How they will age over time: Copper, Matte Black, Bronze, Brass, Cast Iron, and Stainless Steel metal finishes are all optimized for outdoor use and will age naturally over time. Certain factors of climate can affect the degree of change, for example geographic areas with higher salinity will accelerate the patina of the bronze and copper finishes. Matte Black and Stainless Steel will become more matte over time.
Glossy custom color finishes are recommended for indoor or covered outdoor use to maintain their hue. Prolonged UV exposure will fade darker colors over time; Lighter colors maintain longer but may still fade as well.
Drainage: For outdoor use it is sometimes necessary to drill drainage holes. In most cases, three holes are more than sufficient, with diameters from 0.25" to 0.5" inches wide. Any standard drill bit may be used simply space the necessary holes evenly around the bottom of the container. For indoor use, no holes or exterior saucers are necessary. For indoors, it is recommended using a container with a plastic saucer within the fiberglass planter.
