We recently spotted NativeCast among the nominees for Martha Stewart’s American Made Awards. An avid container gardener, NativeCast founder Ricky Giacco drew on his own gardening experience to create a line of modern planters that are lightweight and minimalist in addition to being environmentally friendly.
Above: NativeCast Alapocas Bowls come in 7-inch and 9-inch sizes. Each planter comes fitted with a drainage hole and coco fiber insert to diffuse water over the drainage hole.
Above: Planters are made with NativeCast’s “green” concrete blend, which uses a combination of natural materials–such as sand, coniferous mulch, and clam shells– and recycled materials including post-consumer plastic and concrete reclaimed from roadways and construction demolition. The result is a concrete that’s lightweight, durable, and more environmentally sustainable than traditional options.
Above: The Alapocas Bowl 9 in Gray; $45.
Above: The Brandywine Bowl, the largest in the NativeCast line, has a 16-inch diameter; $120.
