This method of precision fingerjoint planter joinery (the joint is very tight with practically no gaps, so your "all around" carpenter likely cant make this!)i s much stronger and looks more like one long custom built planter box. Very pleasing to the eye and the picures cannot do it justice!

"Come out and sit down" complete terrace garden packages.

 New York Plantings Garden Designers and Landscape Construction NYC began building custom planters as part of our very first project for a Manhattan Penthouse roof garden design and installation, then soon after a high end builder and landscape architect contracted NY Plantings Landscape Contractors to renovate a townhouse rear yard landscape with yet another large custom built IPE planter box running the length of the rear yard.
     Several years later it is established that New York Plantings is the "go to" company to build and deliver custom made planters in the NYC metro areas. 
       The demand for custom built planters is partly fueled by our own rooftop, terrace garden designs and townhouse or brownstone landscaping renovations. We are our own best customer! 
   Finding a high quality planter built by a master gardener and master craftsman with a strong technical and mechanical background isn't easy.

Carpenter built planters?
The typical carpenter may have installed hundreds of kitchen cabinets however knows nothing about what it takes for a planter to survive a rooftop garden planter's task of supporting the trees, shrubs and flowers on terraces, decks, penthouse landscapes and other planter box applications. Continuous temperature cycling over decades of harsh New York winters on a rooftop garden or city sidewalk. Support for plantings is another job that a planter is tasked with: in order to maintain proper drainage and prevent the wood from becoming waterlogged (eventually freezing, splitting and separating from the force of the freeze in winter) then plants are heaved from the pot or planter when soil freezes (this is called "frost heaving", a common condition well known to old school gardeners and homeowners who practice the art. 
 We build planters in IPE wood, pressure treated planters, cedar planters, mahogany planter boxes, any type of  custom built wooden planters or in standard sizes such as cube shaped planter boxes for trees, corner wedge planters, built in terrace garden planter boxes or rectangular planters.
Gardener-built planters?
The typical gardener may be a eager "handy man" however lacks the decades of experience earned as an outdoor carpenter and hardscape tradesman, without the proper tools and materials knowledge to know where that extra strength and attention is required to build a high quality durable heavy duty custom planter box. 
  We have come across several planters tacked together by NYC carpenters and gardeners alike and have found that nearly all have failed in some way only a few short seasons after their expensive completion. Decades of experience in replacing failed planter boxes has given NY Plantings the formula to build bulletproof planters that can withstand the constant containment of moist acid soil, insects, heat, cold, pressure from freezing and destructive root growth.
    Seeing how hundreds of rooftop and sidewalk planters fail and where the typical NYC carpenter or gardener's skills fall short and addressing the common issues normally faced in planter durability has given New York Plantings' custom made planters the ability to last for decades and the ability to support planting such as large trees, shrubs and flowers for a lifetime without rotting or falling apart.

   The use almost exclusively of IPE Brazilian hardwood in our planter boxes ensures success in designing a custom built planter to last a lifetime. 

    Stainless steel fasteners: no shortcuts with old school nails, NEVER use a "nailgun or bradgun" when building anything for outdoor use, especially custom built planter boxes.

 Streetscapes planter boxes, restaurant entry planters, café planter boxes: deserve a heavy, super strong sidewalk planter, reinforced to ward off sniffing urinating pooches, businessmen tying a shoe or some drunken teens trying to move or pull the planter apart. Cafe's need planters that will separate the crowded sidewalk from patrons while supporting shrubs or flowers and plantings with café planters that can handle being moved about and still look great several years later.

 We plant the flowers too! NY Plantings can build beautiful custom planters for your NYC restaurant of café that look great and function to separate your patrons from sidewalk crowds.  

     We can build rectangular planter boxes, square planters, cube style planters that are also offered in a tall planter for high style. We have several photos of planters and planter boxes available and also provide renderings of rooftop garden layouts or terrace gardens, townhouse rear yard landscape designs to show how the planters will look built specifically for your outdoor space. 

  Built in planters:
  Built in planters for terrace garden planter boxes, rooftop garden planters and townhouse rear yards, patios and courtyards are perfect way to provide the best garden like feel for a small but wonderful NYC outdoor space. Contact NY Plantings for their trademark garden design and planter installations. Only one company in NY builds the high quality custom made built in IPE planters that on a continual basis. Landscape Architects and other garden companies even call upon New York Plantings Garden Designers and Landscape Construction company NYC to install planters, hardscapes, decks and custom built fences. Several custom built in planter designs available.         
  New York Plantings Garden Designers and Landscape Contracting can do more than build custom made planters. We can help you deside the size of your custom made planters, the shape of your custom planter boxes and the landscape plan or layout with a complete garden or landscape design plan for rooftop gardens, townhouse landscape design ideas and traditional suburban landscape designing. Architectural quality renderings or simple top down sketches. Master garden knowledge with "hands on" hardcore garden practice that is typically unmatched even by the NYC landscape architects of note. NY Plantings does offer services to the trade and builds custom planters, fences and decks, pergolas and other hardscape for landscape or garden designers, landscape architects and builders. New York Plantings can build planters in their large, well equipped workshop or on site for built in installations of planters such as for terrace garden planter boxes, penthouse gardens where carry through of large planters or built in planters built off site are not practical. sometimes it I too difficult to carry a large planter box to a Manhattan rooftop garden installation so we will pre fabricate the planter box and then assemble the custom made planter on the rooftop garden or terrace.
