About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about : Fairfield Patio Planter, 20" x 36":
I have a clematis in it and a trellis behind it. I have some herbs in one that come back every year, and I fill in with violas in the fall/winter and annuals for spring/summer. The depth of soil makes it just like planting in the ground, only with better soil, so all the plants do really well.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not sure If I would buy again...
By Octogenearian gardener

I am disappointed that Mayne did not drill the recommended 3/4" hole in the planter prior to shipping. These are very expensive planters and should be ready for use upon delivery.If you do not want to wet the leaves of your plants, the hole is essential and the only way to add water directly to the "self-watering well" at the bottom of the planter. How many people have a ¾" bit? In my old age, living alone, I do not even own a drill. Fortunately, I had a handyman in (to build some shelves) who had the tool do drill the holes for me. However, for 4 weeks, I had to water the old-fashion way and also had to use additional anti-deer spray every time I watered.I purchased two large square and one trough in black for myself and one white trough for my son. The black units appear dull or faded: but the white trough just pops on his gray deck and his 3 tomato plants are thriving.Need to wait till the end of the season before I can judge functionality and durability. Herbs and annuals do look great in the planters. As always, it is nice to fill the well and have no worries when one is away for a few days.
Merchant response: We are so sorry that you were disappointed the holes did not come pre-drilled! The hole to access the water reservoir is optional, depending on the intended use, which is why it is not pre-drilled. It is absolutely acceptable to water from the top as with standard planters. We have reached out to see what we can do to help resolve this issue. As always, we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all of our products!

I purchased 3 Provence blue planters to give a pop of color on my new patio. The effect is even better than I expected. I look forward to seeing my plants thrive in them.

I needed a large sturdy planter to create a divide between my lawn area and my patio. The size was perfect and it truly added another dimension to the area. It came fully assembled and the directions were helpful

Longer than expected
from VA Beach
. I was so disappointed to find that the 36" is the interior measurement.. It is 39 inches, long and did not fit in my space. Still love it and am using it Ion my deck.
