Urban planter and seating

Recently, on my Instagram page, I posted this great image of some city gardens in Melbourne and Hobart.

This inspired me to design my own city garden but I have added some seating to make it a multifunctional design. The great thing about it, is that it can be an edible garden.

The tree could be a Bay tree and the smaller planter could have herbs, such as mint, parsley and basil, growing in this section.

The base is textured concrete. Inspired by its durability and the urban surroundings. The backrest is beautiful, local sandstone. The tree planter box is a weathered steel and the extended table is made form recycled timber. The combination of industrial and natural materials create a planter that can fit into any urban environment and is softened by the use of plants.
