Telford Homes – PARKSIDE QUARTER, Isle of Dogs, London E14


Bespoke powder coated steel planters were commissioned for Telford Homes’ new PARKSIDE QUARTER development on the Isle of Dogs, London E14.

A total of 22 bespoke planters were supplied, as follows:

  • 1nr. arc-shaped planter: L 14998 [outer] / 11856 [inner] x W 2000 x H 600mm
  • 3nr. complex, asymmetrical planters, with footprints up to 4600 x 4000mm (see design images in gallery)
  • 11nr. tree planters: L 1500 x W 1500 x H 600mm
  • 7nr. tree planters: L 2000 x W 2000 x H 600mm

All planters were manufactured from 1.5mm Zintec steel, polyester powder coated to RAL 7012 [Basalt grey]. The scale and complexity of the designs required each planter to be internally strengthened via an extensive framework of vertical stiffeners and cross-braces; and the tree planters included 4 steel eye bolts in each base to act as tree anchor attachment points.

The planters were designed and specified for the project by landscape architects James Blake Associates, and were commissioned by J L Knight Roadworks. The designs and drawings shown in the gallery are © James Blake Associates, and are reproduced with their kind permission.
