Stylin’ in the garden

Those who like nothing more than spending leisure time in the garden will likely want to check out a new collection of planters from Munder-Skiles.

Faithful WAG readers may already be familiar with Munder-Skiles, introduced in our pages with a 2012 profile of company founder John Danzer and revisited when Danzer was honored with an Award of Excellence by The Horticultural Society of New York two years later.

The company continues to have its home office and Garden Showroom in an artistic setting along Route 9D in Garrison, a lovely destination in itself complete with a waterfall out back. Additionally, there is a showroom at the New York Design Center in Manhattan and representation in Los Angeles.

The big news this summer is the introduction of a collection of new planters from Munder-Skiles, the firm’s name a tribute to two of its founder’s great-grandparents.

As Danzer has told us, his designs appeal to those he likes to consider “people who are interested in craftsmanship, interested in design, interested in history.”

And the new collection seems ready to follow the Munder-Skiles tradition.

The planters, which range in style from modern to traditional, are designed to look like real stone — but are instead, lightweight options that combine style and function.

They are made from a combination of fiberglass, ground shells and stone, making them suitable for year-round use. Available in four colors, the made-to-order collection is $525 to $1,800 (for the large Norwich Planter, which has a 51-inch diameter).
