Now…. let’s talk about the Freda Urn, which bears the name of Crescent Garden’s founder’s grandmother. The dramatic leaf pattern and elegant shape echo the architectural styling of ancient Greece and Rome, as seen in the illustrations above: Capitals from Egypt (left) and the Capital of the Lysikrates Monument (right). Foliage ornaments and leaf motifs were used extensively on friezes, columns, and panels, the earliest of which is known to be the Temple of Epicurius at Bassae, dating back to 450-420 B.C. But this modern-day stylish urn is made of lightweight, weather-resistant resin (weighing only 12 lbs.), but mimics natural limestone so it’s suitable for virtually any garden setting. I’ve chosen a summer hydrangea for my own Freda urn, and after the season is over, I’ll plant it in the garden and choose something new for fall. This urn has plenty of room for ornamental flowering plants, grasses, and perennials, making it a versatile choice for all your favorite plants. Dimensions: 25.5" tall x 16.5" wide (top) x 12.5" (foot), with a pre-drilled drainage hole.
Crescent Garden’s planters are not just beautiful, they are functional, lightweight, and withstand the tests of time and weather with no cracking or fading. These are lifetime planters, available in styles and colors to suit any decor or living space, inside and out. The company was founded more than 15 years ago by Paula Douer and her husband, who find inspiration for their designs from their home in Miami, Florida. To find out more about their line of products, you can visit them HERE, on Facebook, and Instagram.
Have fun, and good luck. Thanks for participating!
