Downing Street Cube | Fibreglass Planter
The Downing Street planter is exactly the kind of feature you would expect to find adorning the pavements of the famous street itself. For over three hundred years, Downing street has been the home, both figuratively and literally to Britain’s greatest statesmen and stateswomen. The most well known address, No. 10, serves as residence for the Prime Minister of the day. The street was built in the late seventeenth century by Sir George Downing on the site of an existing mansion, Hampden House.
It is the impression of stately elegance that we intend to convey with the design of this planter. It has a clean design, but it is not plain or mundane. Like bobbies guarding the doors of No. 10, these square planters are ideal for flanking a doorway or providing the boundary to your path or other external area. These would look equally smart against a banked against a wall to form a longer coherent flowerbed.
Alternatively, if your garden is already wild and vibrant, add some much needed structure to all of that colour. The squared pattern on the faces of these planters adds more than a touch of civilisation to any area you place them in.
Further to this, although we sell this planter in a range of standard sizes, we also sell it at a whopping 100x100x100cm – making it by far the largest cube planter we sell (beating our stainless steel cube by a considerable 5cm on each face), and one of the largest we have seen sold anywhere.
We offer these planters in both faux lead and antique faux lead – although, upon request we can have these made in any finish. It would be difficult nowadays to find a solid piece of garden furniture like this, made from heavy metals. Not to mention the toxicity, weight and expense of placing real lead in your garden. This makes fibreglass the perfect material to construct these planters out of. Fibreglass, unlike many of the traditional materials it seeks to replace is lightweight and resilient to frost, ultra-violet and other adverse effects of the weather.
