Commercial planters are an important feature in any built-up area. At William Sugg and Co Ltd. we provide a range of traditional commercial planters for any setting to help add a touch of nature to urban spaces. We discuss what they look like, their benefits and some of the best ways to use them in towns and cities.
Commercial planters are large flower boxes that are usually placed in towns and cities to add a touch of nature to what is otherwise an urban area. Commercial planters are also used for isolating different areas of a town and city. For example, the commercial planters can be placed in between the road and pavement to isolate people and vehicles from one another. From trees to flowers, various plants can be placed into commercial planters to create the desired aesthetic of the town. These flower troughs can be placed anywhere from outside a restaurant or office block to along a roadside or cycle path and provide the perfect showcase for all types of plants.
The benefits of using commercial planters
Adding flora to commercial spaces can really enhance the look of landscapes in places where you are unable to plant trees and flowers in the ground. You can use planters to your advantage if you have a building for your business, as placing them outside your business can be inviting to potential customers to help you stand out from your competitors. Another advantage of using commercial planters is that they help to vastly improve public spaces. They help to create a welcoming environment in towns and cities and be a place the public wish to spend their time in. Plants help to add a splash of colour into places which may otherwise look uninviting. Much like bollards, they can also benefit the safety of the public. They can be used to separate roads and cycle lanes from public walkways in addition to creating a colourful and eye-catching aesthetic. They can also be easily moved from one place to the next. Instead of having to replant your trees or flowers, you can simply move the planter itself to a new location.
How to use commercial planters
One way to use commercial planters is to incorporate them into street furniture such as park benches. This will give an inviting feel to passers by and encourage more people to use park benches to enjoy the outdoor space. Another way to use them is to segregate outdoor spaces. Instead of using plain, metal barriers or bollards, you can use colourful plants to help add a great aesthetic to your space. You could use this to separate cycle lanes from pedestrian only zones, or to mark out a private piece of land. Anywhere you choose to place your greenery is sure to give a boost to everyone’s mood. Whether it be in a shopping centre, a park, outside a restaurant or along the roadside, commercial planters are a great addition to any space.
