Design Description

Tree planters have to be big enough for the rootage, that’s why they are heavy in most cases and can be moved only by special equipment. Our desire is to bring tree planting closer to the people. That is the reason why we developed an easy-to-assemble planter wich can be used on streets, city squares, smaller private courts, balconies or roofs. People could easily buy them as flat-pack in any retail store. We made it simply portable: it fits into a car or an elevator and can be easily lifted by hand. Following simple instructions people can assemble the elements quickly. The bag used for packaging is made of geotextile wich should be used inside the planter as a lining, therefore no waste is generated. Avoiding angularity we strove to look firendly in all aspects. The planter can be made from multiple ingredients but our suggestion is HPL (High Pressure Laminated) panels made of recycled wood waste by UV- and weather resistant coating. Attached stickers drawing attention to the lack of trees can be placed freely to the sides.

How will your design encourage more people or cities to grow trees?

In public areas trees can be planted that are suitable for the environment and next to their trunks low-growing shrubs can help us to create complete green islands. Built-in benches offer shady seating for those who walk by. In private courts or on roofs people can even plant fruit trees into the planters and some herbs or vegetables. Graphics on the sides draw attention to the lack of trees – the shape of the tree has the colour of the backgruond -, they encourage tree planting. This graphic can be used on various surfaces reminding people of the importance of trees.
