In an area dominated by asphalt and concrete, IOTA’s range of granite planters allowed for just a little bit of foliage. A dull landscape such as this parking lot in Bankstown in Sydney has been softened significantly with the added greenery.
The steel railings were complemented with these plants donning green and red foliage and the results speak for themselves.
Granite Trough 1000s were positioned along the rails so as to guide vehicles on their paths. Trough planters are suitable for lining up along walls and railings to help direct traffic. On the other hand, the Granite Taper 800s were positioned at specific junctures to emphasize a turn.
Granite, being a naturally tough stone, makes the granite planters a good fit for such landscapes. While granite is not strong enough to sustain an actual collision with a vehicle, it can certainly handle a few kicks and the usual bumps from trolleys and shopping carts that frequent the parking lots.
