Seattle Terrace Project
Award-winning landscape designer Scot Eckley contacted us when tasked to design a modern terrace for a downtown Seattle residence that overlooked a bustling cityscape and nearby Elliott Bay. Eckley knew from his previous experience working with Planters Unlimited that we would deliver high-quality, custom planters that withstand the rainy Seattle weather beautifully, and also match both the scale and budget of the project.
The planters Eckley was looking for wouldn't just need to be long-lasting in regularly inclement weather conditions, they would also have to be large enough to house trees and their root systems. On top of that, these planters would have to match the aesthetic of this modern outdoor space, which is why he chose our Modern Square Fiberglass planters in a Pearl Matte finish. Large custom planters that are all at once simple and streamlined the Modern planter was the perfect complement to this contemporary space.
Our Modern Planter collection includes round, square, rectangular, tapered, and low bowl iterations of this sleek, simple planter silhouette. Made of lightweight fiberglass, these commercial planters are known for their ability to hold up beautifully in all weather conditions (including freezing) without cracking, chipping, warping, rotting, or become otherwise damaged. For these reasons, many landscape architects, designers, and trade professionals use our Modern fiberglass planters instead of concrete planters for rooftops, balconies, terraces, and other areas where weight and weather conditions are major factors.
Modern planters can be customized to fit any size and specification your design project needs. Choose from 25+ colors and four finishes, and add accessories like locking casters, self-watering inserts, and coordinating drip trays for indoor applications. And since our custom manufacturing capabilities at Planters Unlimited are nearly endless, and we use them every day, you can expect unparalleled design and durability with a shorter lead time than our competitors. It's no wonder that our Modern Planters, along with all of our landscape solutions, are so popular with designers and trade professionals!
