Customer Questions & Answers

Is it necessary to line the planters before adding soil to them will this help prolong the wood from rotting?

Asked by: Cck
It is not necessary to line the planters.

Should I line the boxes with plastic to preserve the wood before I put the soil in

Asked by: Cck
Yes. It is recommended that you insert a liner into the Planter Box before adding the soil and the plants. This will reduce the amount of water damage to the planter and thus prolong the life of the planter.

How could I position these boxes on the exterior of our balcony?

There's a little ledge but not 12" more like 1.5" so I would need to somehow use something to hang them. What do you recommend?
Asked by: Jennifer
Hello, The ledge you have is very small compared to the size of the Wood Planter Box. You may want to consider installing a larger piece of wood onto the ledge so the Wood Planter Box can be held securely in place. Thank you

What is this box treated with, exactly?

I need to know which chemicals the box is treated with to see if it is suitable for Organic standards. I see in the description that it is "safe for use with ornamental and edible plants" and is treated with a "water soluble" treatment, but that is not enough information for the Organic confirmation. Thanks.
Asked by: Brian
Hello, The Wood Planter Box is treated with a water soluble stain that can be use for growing edible plants. For organic gardening we would recommend used an organic liner to protect the plants. Thank you

40 in. x 12 in. Wood Planter Box is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the price I bought 3 of these, I like the size of them for flowers, but definetly not worth the price. The nails started to come out a week after I planted and wood isn't that great. I am disappointed, could be better quality for the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good quality One week after setting this up with soil and plants, it was coming apart at the bottom. I would have expected better quality with the price I paid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good, also used a poly box inside for durability. We wanted these boxes because they looked very nice. Yes, the quality of these are okay... they could be better for how much they charge for these. We have now had them for two months. So far so good. What we ended up doing is first, we lined the inside of the box with plastic and punched holes in the bottom to drain. We then put one row of empty egg cartons or plastic bottles along the bottom. We then used a plastic poly window box that we purchased at HD for $10 which fit perfectly. or Store SKU # 482773. We then used soil and planted the flowers inside the poly box. This setup puts no strain on the box itself and the box is more or less for looks. It looks fantastic from the street and I feel this should hold up over time. I will adjust my rating

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Discouraging Very pleased when I purchased the planters. Seemed well constructed, good color. After one month they are separating at the bottom. I didn't even fill them up with soil. I rated the over all unsatisfactory, because they haven't held up as I would have expected for the price. Also, I saved the product description card that was attached and can't find information to contact the company. Is it Pennington or Central Garden and Pet. Frustrated.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from it's ok I've had the product for about 2 months and it's faded, cracked and falling apart...i loved it at first. for the money i paid I'd rather buy plastic / clay and have it last a season

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Matthews Planter These wooden planters have the rustic look I was after. I have several of different lengths that I turn upside down to set some of my potted plants on (to be able to vary the heights of plants on the deck). I know it's not the way they're intended to be used, but it works, and none of the boards have come loose even with large potted chysanthemums sitting on them.
