Concrete & Design
Concrete is a superb, noble and ancient building material. It is a product which, when cured, develops 90% of its strength in a month and then continues to strengthen over the next 100 years.The Coliseum and Aqueducts of Rome are well known and excellent examples of the longevity and beauty of concrete. Today, in the world of garden planters, manufacturers often refer to this simple and elegant material as ‘cast stone’. The correct term is concrete, and it needs no apology or beautification of its name.
Each piece is hand built on a wheel not unlike that of a clay potters wheel. Dense, polymerized, high strength concrete is hand packed on top of an interior mold and completely reinforced with a web of galvanized steel.
No exterior molds are used and thus there are no ‘seams’. The reinforcement steel is precisely positioned producing the strongest garden planters available. Each piece is cured out in a temperature and humidity controlled environment and then sandblasted.
