Our Range of Planters
I was very happy to be associated with Oxford Planters as their professionalism and eye for good design and detail is apparent in everything they do.
In a word: Quality
Oxford Planters works with European Oak, sustainable hardwoods, and Accoya™ which is billed as a "new wood species". It has all the properties of a hard wood and is FSC certified. A chance meeting with the inventors of Accoya enabled Oxford Planters to become one the first companies to use Accoya™ to manufacture the vast range of planters and furniture OP has to offer. It is hoped with the introduction of Accoya™ that the paint application on painted planters could last up to 6 times longer than paint applications on other types of timber.
Unique to Oxford Planters. A series of lead-based planters have been included in our range. Currently available in two distinctive styles - ranging from the classical and elegant to the contemporary and chic. Each planter is hand-made by local Oxfordshire craftsmen in thick lead using an innovative new technique that involves wrapping the lead around an Accoya™ frame which has a guarantee of 25 years against rot. This retains the look and patina of the traditional lead planter while offering the added advantages of resilience to damage, greater rigidity and gravity-defying strength! Bespoke patterns and one-off designs are cost-effective and can be made to order.
