Stone & Granite Troughs
Troughs were originally used to hold water for livestock. They can still now occasionally be seen in or alongside fields and barns holding livestock. In the early part of the 20th Century gardeners began converting troughs for use as planters, a concept that is now commonplace. Stone and granite troughs are particularly suited to the cultivation of alpine plants typically found in rocky, dry, cold habitats.
Granite
Granite is an extremely dense, igneous and crystalline rock that has so far only been found on earth. Its strength under compression has seen it used extensively in the construction industry. It has a rough texture, unless sanded to a smooth finish. Granite is typically grey but can include yellows, pinks and greens depending on its exact composition.
Finish
These troughs have been hand crafted from granite, a natural product with characteristics that are appreciated for their diversity. Please note that marked differences in texture, size and colour may exist between troughs, even if made from the same batch of raw granite. They may also feature marks, nicks and chips. If you are concerned about the finish (or size) of the trough you will receive, we recommend that you visit us before purchasing to view first hand.
Planting
These granite troughs feature a raised planting bed, reducing the quantity of soil or compost required. A 20mm base of ‘crock’ or rubble on the bed can aid watering. For a finishing touch, add a layer of gravel across the top.
