To waterproof the KURA planter we use e a commercial-grade, waterborne bitumen emulsion modified waterproofing that contains synthetic rubber.It is Non-Flammable and remains watertight under permanently wet conditions.
When planting the units you have the option of using a galvanised tray or pots with drip trays. Standard planters come with only waterproofing in the quote – If you’d like us to add the galvanised tray please let your account manager know.
More information on the options can be seen below.
- Galvanised tray
The galvanized tray is totally waterproof and either houses pots or has soil added and is directly planted into. If it’s planted then you will need to remove and drain the water from time to time to maintain the health of the soil and plants.
- Pots with drip trays
The most cost-effective option is a plastic drip tray with pot skin – see images below. For a planter that is 1200mm wide, we’d recommend 4 pots and 2 trays.
You’ll then be able to place your pots directly into the ‘pot skins’.
These pots and trays are available at Bunnings or online.
There are also alternative solutions such as the below;
