Timber / wood

The hexagonal Beaufort planter is constructed using 45mm-thick hardwood timbers finished with two coats of micro-porous preservative. It forms part of the Beaufort street furniture range.
If left to weather naturally the wood will gradually turn silver grey with no loss of strength. Alternatively, to retain the depth of colour a woodstain can be applied every few years.
The heavy-duty steel supports are fully galvanised against rust and finished with a black powder coating. Each support has an adjustable foot that will account for any unevenness in the ground.
The planters are lined with a self-draining tough geotextile fabric that will retain the soil whilst allowing excess water to drain away.
The Beaufort planter can be combined with the Beaufort tree bench to make an attractive seating feature.
