Stone planters

Stone planters are among the most popular flower containers in domestic or public gardens. Historically, the use of stone in gardens dates back to ancient noble traditions. In fact, above all the high ranks of the aristocracy and the nobility - as the places of public interest linked to them testify - use this material to furnish and decorate their splendid and sumptuous gardens.
Stone, of course, is a completely natural material that - if properly processed - can withstand over time even for hundreds of years. When skillfully molded to suit your tastes, this material is perfect for furnishing your green spaces in the best and long-lasting way. Generally it is found in a smooth or raw form, in the most common colors of white or black.


The construction of stone planters It is a highly specialized mechanical process. It is unlikely that anyone could take a large, voluminous piece of stone from a large pile of rock, take it home and start working it at will. The creation of stone planters in fact it provides for several rather cumbersome processing steps: first of all, take a block of stone that is sufficiently large to be able to obtain the object in the desired size. Then this boulder is worked by mechanical procedures, digging a large and sufficiently large hole inside it to house the soil and the roots of the flowers that will be grown inside it.
Of course it is quite easy to imagine that a block of stone is not exactly light, indeed. However this disadvantage is compensated by the easy harmonization that the stone planters are able to establish with the surrounding environment, making it more beautiful, natural and pleasant. Generally these containers are shaped in different shapes according to the tastes of the buyer, but above all they find their right measure in the shapes of the rectangle or square; rarely of the circle; often with a rounded and wavy perimeter.


Unless you have really large spaces inside your apartment and sufficiently robust floors (given the very high weight that makes some of these objects almost immovable), as well as a certain propensity to eccentricity, it is good to place the stone planters in their ideal environment: the garden. Here, stone planters can play a key role in furnishing, designing and decorating green spaces. Placing them in places with effect can certainly benefit the overall appearance of your garden, giving it a sober but at the same time "wild" flavor that will make it unique and inimitable. At the four corners of the garden, for example, it will make its overall appearance truly majestic and imposing, as the majestic and imposing are by nature the planters built in stone. Placed in a row, they will even be able to trace pleasant paths through very large and spacious gardens, perhaps next to an artificial waterway studded with stones and pebbles that would blend with the planters giving a sure ornamental effect. The solutions are many and varied, and each one has the task of choosing and placing them according to their good taste.
However, it is necessary, given its own personal pleasure, to pay due attention to the compatibility between the plant you intend to cultivate in the planter and the planter itself. A disproportion between the dimensions could damage the plant due to a bad aeration or an excessive water retention that would bring the roots of the flowers to the inevitable rot.
So choose them carefully and with respect for your plants and flowers. The effect will be assured and your garden will change from such to such!


As already mentioned, it is intuitive: stone is one of the strongest and most resistant materials in the world. And yet, like everything, it tends to deteriorate under certain conditions. In fact, has not the action of wind and rain eroded the flower of mountains and rocky chains? Precisely, given also their elective position, that is the garden, stone planters are particularly exposed to atmospheric agents, and above all to rain which in the long run could erode the walls, ruining them. It is therefore necessary to carry out periodic maintenance using a stone and water brush: to prevent the deleterious effects of rain, pass the brush over the stone until the sediments that stain it are removed, then rinse.
One aspect that makes them pleasing is certainly their robustness: there is no danger that an accident could break them!
