The acacia and teak we use are woods which are naturally fully saturated of natural oil that avoid the deterioration. You can let your planters aging gracefully in the weathered natural grey color or you can apply once a year a coat of wood preservative or oil designed specially for exotic wood.
The boxes’ feet must rest on a hard surface. We recommend placing a piece of wood under each metal foot (this applies only to models with frames: 30 in. x 30 in., 37 in. x 37 in. and 47 in. x 47 in.). If you want to place the box on soft ground, place a metal plate or a flat stone under each foot.
We recommend placing two sheets of landscaping fabric inside the box on the bottom and then adding a 1.5 in. to 2 in. layer of clay balls to help drainage. You can then add the appropriate soil for your plant.
