‘Mixy’ Ipe wood planters are constructed with side panels of 3/4″ thick Ipe wood slats. These Ipe planter panels are held in place with grey, powder coated, galvanized steel frames and end panels featuring optional laser cut designs.
Adjustable height ‘feet’ on each corner of the base provide leveling on uneven surfaces. Wheels can be supplied as an option.
All Ipe wood planters are supplied flat packed for ease of transportation and assembly on site, with supplied stainless steel bolts.
Adjacent planters can be linked by a matching Ipe wood bench seat mounted to the steel end panels.
Wood panels on Mixy wood planters do not have any factory-applied oil coating. We recommend the panels for these Ipe wood planters be coated with a good quality decking oil prior to assembly if you wish to retain the color of the wood as long as possible. Further applications should be made depending on the degree of exposure to sunlight. Without the application of any protective oil, the wood will weather naturally to a silvery grey color.
We normally use Ipe wood for our planters because of its unrivaled hardness, durability, and excellent weathering properties. However, we can also supply planters in Black Locust, another highly durable wood species harvested from sustainably managed USA forest resources.
