These Harmony Acres Cedar Rectangular Planters are a great accent for small patios or deck area. The red cedar wood carries a distinct aroma. Cedar naturally bears colors ranging from off-white to deep red. Red cedar is naturally rot-resistant and repels insects, which is great for gardening applications. These items pair well with Natural-Kote™ soy-based stains and paint products to help ensure longevity outdoors. Annual resealing is recommended.
