Public spaces are not just about a building or a structure. It includes the open spaces where people pass through and gather on a daily basis. You want the outdoor areas to reflect the same aesthetic you have with your interiors, yet you want to keep it safe for the people that use it. Concrete planter
While some may initially balk at using concrete planters to provide security, they need to realize that they aren’t just simple planters. While they may look like regular rectangular planters, they are actually reinforced with a metal cage and can stop or divert a moving vehicle to reduce damage not only to the property, but also avoid injury to the pedestrians behind the barriers.
While these large concrete planters may be able to hold their own against a moving vehicle, they are also aesthetically pleasing so they don’t stick out like a sore thumb when you incorporate them into your landscaping design. Large plants can be added into the planters to give not only the cooling effect that foliage brings, but also additional privacy for rooms and establishments on the ground floor. This makes it a great option for schools, medical facilities, and offices that may want to offer beautiful views to those on the ground floor while providing privacy.
In case you are concerned that your design would be hampered by limited options, you will be happy to know that there are a variety of shapes and designs to choose from, including large rectangular planters, square planters, and even round planters. All of them provide the security and crowd control you need, while bringing you the visually appealing designs that you want. Do not be fooled by the simplicity of the design of the concrete planter. It serves a number of purposes.
