Warm, buttery tones of browns, reds, and sage make natural slate garden planters a natural fit for almost any environment.
Slate is a type of stone formed by sedimentary deposits that give the stones natural variations in color and texture. When the design calls for old-world elegance without complete uniformity, slate planters add a sophisticated look without rigidity. Because of the way slate rock is formed, these planters are slightly more susceptible to denting and wear than planters made from harder stone, but the variation in stone surfaces effectively hides light wear and tear.
A Material that Matches Everything
A characteristic of natural slate planters that makes it easy to specify them in designs is that they are equally at home in sleek, modern environment as in more casual, country locations. A variety of naturally-occurring tones and colors allow planting containers with slate garden pots to coordinate indoors, and out with diverse materials such as decking wood, natural floor tiles, and hundreds of paint color varieties.
More Fun to Plant
Part of the reason to include planting containers in a landscape design—whether commercial or residential—is to plant the containers! There’s such a large plant palette available to Australian landscape designers, that it’s refreshing to find a container that will work with virtually any plant. From natives to exotic tropicals, the soft tones of natural slate showcase any plant in the containers. That makes it easy to match the perfect plant to the place where the containers will live, and still have a beautiful design.
