The Lakeside planter is the newest addition to the popular line of site elements designed by award-winning architect, Margaret McCurry. The planter has a simple steel cylinder shell, 36” in diameter and 23” high, and a robust roto-molded liner. Designed to compliment Lakeside benches and litters, the steel shell features decorative grass or leaf patterns incised by state-of-the-art plasma-cutting technology. Special patterns can be created for signature applications. Bold colored liners in sky blue, grass green, daisy yellow, or in black, are visible through the cut patterns and in the 3” reveal at the base, lending the planter a lively presence. The Lakeside planter is finished with Landscape Forms proprietary Pangard II™ polyester powdercoat in the full Landscape Forms color palette. The liner is molded LMDP (liner medium density polyethylene) and is 100% recyclable.
