FAQ

Where are your containers manufactured?

Our containers are all proudly handmade by our local artisans in Langley BC.  Which is about 30kms east of Vancouver.

What are your planters made out of?

Aluminum. And we have nothing to hide when it comes to the quality and thickness of our aluminum. All containers are made out of either .100 or .125 thickness material. We refuse to work with thinner material just to save a few dollars. 

Our aluminum is spec’d for truck and trailer components, aircraft components, boat hulls, ladders, railings, tool boxes, kitchen equipment. So fair to say, we build our products to last. This grade of aluminum is guaranteed to never rust. It is half the weight of steel and twice the strength. 

What finish do you use?

We finish all our products with powder coating. 

There are several advantages of powder coating over conventional liquid coatings:

  1. Powder coatings emit zero or near zero volatile organic compounds (VOC).
  2. Powder coatings can produce much thicker coatings than conventional liquid coatings without running or sagging.
  3. Powder coating overspray can be recycled and thus it is possible to achieve nearly 100% use of the coating.

All of this makes for a durable, beautiful, long lasting finish.

Can you only powder coat in the colors I see on your website?

No. There is a full range of colors and textures avail to match anything you can imagine. Contact us with your ideas and we can help you out and provide a custom quote.

Can you do custom sizes?

Yes! We routinely work with designers and architects to provide custom dimensions and finishes that are perfect for your project.  Contact us with your ideas and specifications for a custom quote.

How do your planters drain?

All our planters come pre drilled with drain holes on the bottom. We highly recommend placing landscape fabric in the bottom of your planter before building the planter up to accept plants.

Can you provide everything we need to plant our new planters out?

Yes. We will gladly give a reference, upon request, to a select few companies out of Vancouver BC, that can handle all of your planter needs. From design to planting materials and the planting itself. 

Can you supply the plants that go in my planter?

Yes we can. Please contact us with your request and we will either handle it ourselves through our network of premium growers or give you a great referral to make your planters come alive.
