Animal Planter

Planters & Sandpits - Childrens playground equipment


The Animal Planter is a practical and winning choice for schools that want to introduce nature and wildlife to their school grounds.

Ideal for introducing pupils to natural science and enabling them to learn about the life cycle of plants first hand, the Animal Planter also doubles as a great seating area, where the youngsters can go to rest, chat or alternatively read a book in peace.

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 Animal Planter offers plenty of scope for this through natural science lessons.

The Animal Planter comes with attractive sculptures of animals and wildlife on the sides of the planter to give the planter a further educational theme.

It is handcrafted from robust and chunky sections of redwood timber, which are ideal for use in schools as they are less prone to splinters than hardwoods and are low maintenance.

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.
