Frequently asked questions
Everything you need to know about the way we work
What is the typical lead time for a custom planter order?
The lead time for a custom planter order can vary depending on several factors, including the complexity of the design, the materials used, the manufacturing process, and the workload. Generally, it is difficult to provide an exact "typical" lead time as it can vary significantly among different businesses.In some cases, a simple custom planter order may take a few weeks to be completed, including the time required for design approval, material sourcing, manufacturing, and shipping. More complex or large-scale custom orders may take longer, potentially several months, especially if specialised materials or techniques are involved.To get a more accurate estimate for your specific custom planter order, it's best to contact us directly. We will be able to provide you with details regarding their current workload, production capabilities, and an estimated lead time for your specific requirements.
Can you accommodate special requests for environmentally friendly or sustainable materials?
When placing a custom planter order, you can specify your preference for environmentally friendly materials. Some commonly used sustainable materials for planters include recycled plastic, reclaimed wood, bamboo, natural fibers, and biodegradable or compostable materials. We can advise you on the availability of sustainable materials, provide information about their environmental certifications or standards, and work with you to create a custom planter that aligns with your sustainability goals.
Can I request a consultation to discuss my design ideas and requirements?
Yes, you can typically request a consultation with us to discuss your design ideas and requirements for a project. During a consultation, you can share your design concepts, provide specific requirements such as dimensions, materials, finishes, and any other details important to you. The manufacturer or supplier can then offer their expertise and guidance, providing feedback on the feasibility of your ideas, suggesting improvements or alternative options, and addressing any concerns you may have.Consultations can be conducted through various means, such as in-person meetings, phone calls, video conferences, or even email exchanges. The purpose of the consultation is to establish clear communication between with you, allowing both parties to collaboratively work towards creating a custom planter that meets your design vision and requirements.
Can I make changes to my custom planter order after it has been placed?

If the production process has not begun or if the changes can be accommodated without significant disruption to the manufacturing timeline, they may be able to modify your order. However, keep in mind that once production has started or if the order is already in progress, making changes may be more challenging. The feasibility of changes will depend on factors such as the complexity of the design, availability of materials, and the extent of the modifications requested. To ensure clarity and avoid any misunderstandings, it's important to communicate your desire to make changes promptly and clearly with us.
