New lightweight planters from Haddonstone

Stonework manufacturer Haddonstone has introduced two new collections of stylish planters – the Box and Heritage ranges.

Illustrated (left to right) are: Box planter (Small) in Slate, Heritage planter (Large) in Terracotta and Box Planter in Bath.

The Box planter is contemporary in design whilst the Heritage planter range is more traditional, featuring raised moulding detail. Both come in small, standard and large sizes, all manufactured in Haddonstone’s TecLite material to ensure that stone thickness, and consequently weight, is kept to a minimum.

Although TecLite closely resembles traditional cast stone and natural stone in appearance, the use of thin wall construction and Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete (GRC) technology means the component weight is reduced by approximately two thirds when compared with similar Haddonstone pieces.

Established is the UK’s leading manufacturer of fine garden ornaments, interior and exterior stonework in traditional, classical and contemporary styles. Haddonstone itself is a unique form of cast limestone with a surface texture similar to Portland stone. The material matures and weathers like natural stone. Haddonstone’s designs range from fountains, planters and bird baths to balustrades, follies and fireplaces.
