Our liners help protect the timber for greater longevity, made from HDPE which is suitable for all plants including herbs & veggies.
The plastic liners are made of HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene). You see HDPE everywhere, from milk bottles to food containers and water pipes. It’s one of the best and safest types of plastic for food consumption as it resists UV rays and is extremely heat tolerant (-100 to 80 C ). HDPE is not known to transmit any chemicals into soil or food, because of this, it’s an excellent choice for the garden.
Our planters are designed to allow for water drainage. At each end of the planter we provide a small opening for the water to drain out, that way any excess water drains out and down the inside of each leg.
Drainage holes are not required in the trough of our planters. We have tested this method with negative results such as water draining too fast and also leaving a big messy pool of water under the middle of the planter.
