Digging Planter

Planters & Sandpits - Childrens playground equipment


The Digging Planter is a practical and educational addition to any school garden or outdoor area.

Ideal for natural science lessons, the Digging Planter offers the chance for pupils to develop exploratory skills. The children can grow their own crops or plants and really experience the wonders of nature first hand.

The government's recent Learning outside the Classroom Manifesto is an initiative that has seen a huge increase in demand for teaching apparatus outdoors and the Digging Planter offers plenty of scope for this.

As the name suggests, the Digging Planter is great for exploratory and discovery based play too and is a terrific addition for any school or children's centre looking to start up a Gardening Club.

The Digging Planter is made from sustainable redwood timber, which is ideal for schools as it is durable, low maintenance and less prone to splinters than hardwoods.

Due to Environmental reasons we choose to use European Redwood. This is one of the hardest softwoods available and is suitable for exterior usage. It has a natural resilience, and the introduction of the preservative Tanalith E helps this timber have a greater life span than some hardwoods - without the negative environmental impact associated with exotic hardwoods.

Redwood timber is fully grown in 50 years. It is also harvested and replanted in 50% of the time that it takes a hardwood tree to reach maturity. All redwood used by Pendlewood is harvested from sustainable forests.

Tanalith E Pressure Treated Timber

The treated timber that Pendlewood supply is pressure treated Tanalith E.

Tanalith E conforms to the efficacy requirements of BS EN 599-1:19997, and is treated in accordance with the penetration and retention guidance given in BS EN 351-1:1996 to give a desired service life in the selected hazard class as defined in BS EN 335-1:11992.
