FencePost Series Planters

Simple in Form, yet Intricate in Detail

The FencePost Series’ sculptural and highly textured forms demonstrate the handcrafted beauty for which Kornegay Design’s precast concrete planters are known. Weathered cedar fence rails were the inspiration for this design, sandblasted and then made into molds to reveal the wood’s unique, textured surfaces. Because planters often act as a transition point between the indoor and outdoor spaces, the FencePost Series was designed to soften this transition, blurring the line between the natural and architectural worlds.

Reclaimed Inspiration

“The FencePost Series has a special place in my heart,” describes Larry Kornegay. “Every morning my wife, Paula and I take a walk around our neighborhood just as the sun is coming up. Because our neighborhood has a lot of older ranch-style homes, aging split-rail fences are a common site. I was so inspired by these old pieces of wood—the shape, the color, the way the elements make the grain come out—I began coming home with one or two discarded rails each morning. When I finally collected enough, I immediately began making them into molds.”

FencePost Product Details

The FencePost Series are round architectural landscape containers with an intricate surface texture molded from reclaimed wood. The texture and sculptural character of the planters complement architecture that emphasizes natural elements or serve as a contrast to the clean lines of contemporary architecture. With three sizes ranging from 24” to 42” tall and 27” to 42” in diameter, the FencePost Series is designed to fit a variety of architectural and landscaping needs. The planters ship with the standard 2-⅜” diameter drainage hole, or custom hole to function with irrigation & drainage plumbing. The FencePost Series is available in 9 standard colors, with additional color mixing available, and can be finished in a bituminous sealer (suggested for interior applications) or sandblast finish.
