Whether you're creating a green balcony oasis or trying to liven up an outdoor space wooden garden planters from Estate Millwork can be customized to fit your needs. Our planters come in several different styles and wood species.
Planters are great for expanding your gardening space. Planters can go anywhere, on a sidewalk, stairs, a deck.
Planters sit above the ground and allow you to create cascading focal points throughout your garden.
The soil you already hae in your garden may not be the greatest but when you use a planter you have complete control over the soil used which can give you excellent growing conditions
You may only have a few sunny spots around your house, planters allow you to plant in these areas things like beautiful flowers, foliage, or even vegetables that you may have otherwise been unable to grow.
Planters come in all shapes and sizes and can really make a statement and add to your overall garden design.
What if you don't have enough room for a raised bed or an area with less than full sun, the solution may be easier than you thought. While most of us are used to growing herbs in pots, many vegetables can also do well in smaller planters such as peppers, lettuces, tomatoes, and zucchini. The advantage to growing in planters is you can place them where they will receive the most sun light.
Teak wood is known for its lovely golden brown color, although when freshly machined, it can sometimes have a variable pattern. Over time, and with exposure to sun and air, the streaks mellow into the signature golden brown appearance for which Teak is so prized.
Because Teak grows in a sandy soil it has a very high naturally occurring silica content, and this silica impregnates the fibers of the wood making it nearly waterproof. As well as making the wood naturally water resistant the wood’s natural oils double as natural insect repellents. Once milled, Teak holds its shape extremely well, and that stability makes it such an attractive wood for yacht builders, as well as for other builders whose materials must perform under harsh conditions and within tight tolerances.
This resin and oil content that makes Teak wood such an outstanding exterior wood is what can also cause the dramatic color variance we see when the wood is freshly planed and cut. Greys, greens, oranges and harsh streaks will show up immediately and that prized honey brown color is gone, while this can alarming but it is important to realize that this will fade with time.
