Alex Mitchell garden designer
A series of bespoke steel planter modules were commissioned for a small residential terrace in North London. The scheme was designed and specified by garden designer and gardening author, Alex Mitchell, to create a green, intimate and inviting garden space despite the physical constraints.
Five modules in total were fabricated, of maximum width / height 800mm, and in lengths that varied from 900 to 1550mm.
Three of the planters were stepped, to create a change in height along the run; and one of them incorporated a cylindrical cowl to isolate an air vent passing through the base.
The planter modules were manufactured from 1.5mm Zintec steel, polyester powder coated to RAL 7032 [Pebble grey].
A further planter L 2100 x W 550 x H 550mm in RAL [Slate grey] was supplied for a small paved area at the front of the house.
