Additional Information

A Tall Planter with the Look of Custom-Crafted Wood in Durable, Easy-to-Maintain Material

  • Get the look of fine woodworking in easy-to-maintain planters
  • High quality, UV-protected polyethylene never needs painting or staining
  • Built-in water reservoirs reduce maintenance chores
  • We recommend two 20-quart bags of our premium Organic Self-Watering Potting Mix if using the optional sub-floor, or three bags if the sub-floor isn't used

Dress up your landscape with these elegant, self-watering planters. They are rather tall planters at 28" high, adding some drama to your patio. With clean lines and raised panel detailing, they have the look of fine woodworking. But, unlike wooden planters these are virtually maintenance free because they're made from high quality polyethylene — there's no need for annual painting or staining. With the best UV protection in the industry, these planters have a 15-year guarantee against fading. They have built-in reservoirs to supply a slow, steady supply of water to plants — just what plants need for healthy, stress-free growth.

Product Details

  • UV-protected polyethylene
  • 15-3/4" square at top x 28" H
  • Interior sub-floor may be removed for larger plants or trees
  • Holds 50 quarts of potting mix if sub-floor is removed
  • Holds 32 quarts when sub-floor is left in place
  • Water reservoir capacity is 6-1/2 gallons
  • Drainage holes are not included, but can be easily drilled in the desired location depending on the intended use for the planter
  • Protect from freezing temperatures

Not what I'd expected

By carpwander

Comments about : Tall Fairfield Patio Planter:

I knew they were made from polyethylene, but the description made them sound like they would have more of a wood look than they actually did. I thought they looked inexpensive and more like plastic than wood. The watering system inside was cool, but the aesthetics were not right for my front entranceway. Unfortunately, I am stuck with them though because Gardeners doesn't pay for return shipping and the cost for return shipping for both was $90 since they are oversized. Will have to attempt to sell on Craig's List or something. Customer Service was very nice about it, but there wasn't anything they could do and honestly that makes me less likely to order from Gardeners again : (

These planters STINK "literally"

By CJ

from Boise, ID

Verified Reviewer

Comments about : Tall Fairfield Patio Planter:

These are pretty planters (I bought 6 total in two different shades). However, the platform that rests inside at the halfway point (I assume to eliminate the need to fill the planter completely full of soil) does not stay in place under the weight of the moist soil and plants. My husband put screws in to hold them in place, which fixed the "falling" problem, but even worse was the drainage issue. Any excess liquid from watering drained into the lower portion of the planter, sat, and putrefied. The odor was horrific!!! We drilled holes in the bottom to let the water out (Why didn't they think of that when they designed these planters?). At the end of the season, it was a mess trying to clean them out.

    Love the look. Would not buy another, only because there is no way to fill the water or see how much is there.

    A TOUCH OF CLASS!

    Purchased two of the RED planters which arrived yesterday. To surprise hubby I wouldn't tell him what was in the boxes. He went to the gym this morning and I hit the nursery. Purchased two unusual mid size cactus similar to crown of thorns, only no flowers. Purchased the proper potting mix and put everything together before he got back. He was blown away and loves how they look! Said they finished off the front of the house.

    I haven't put it up yet but it will become the "centerpiece" of a new patio garden I am having constructed. Plan to let Clematis grow on it.

      A beautiful, distinctive planter. It makes a statement and really showcases anything that is panted in it. Deep planting area allows for deep root growth. I am glad that I purchased these planters.
