Planting the Triolife Triangular Planter (Kitty “Helped”)

by Genevieve on May 16, 2012

I’ll admit it: I’m bad with containers. I love planting them, placing them and admiring them. What I’m not so great at is watering them.

So when Eartheasy offered to send me one of these stylish triangular Triolife planters to test out, I wasn’t feeling too confident that I’d be able to create an effect worthy of its awesomeness. I mean, look at the thing – it’s all modern and fresh and thrilling-looking.

But when I looked further at the design, it’s actually got an open center which allows a core of soil to run down the middle, making the planter a lot easier to keep watered and happy as there’s plenty of root room for all of the plants.

I am getting ahead of myself, though.

Amy Stewart and I decided to do a joint review of the thing, but when it first arrived, we spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to put it together (I don’t think we’re very handy). But once we figured it out, there was a satisfying simplicity to the design – it fits together with perfectly-cut pieces and pegs, and you don’t need any tools, screws or the like to construct it. (Kind of like that raised bed kit we reviewed from Eartheasy a while back.)

But just in case you’re a little, erm, “challenged” in the construction department like we are, Amy and I made a quick video showing what it looks like before planting it up, so you can get the gist of how it goes together.

Step-by-step photos:

Don’t neglect the kitty during this process or you’ll get a wet nose pressed against your camera lens.

Anyway, what was I doing? The cutes temporarily blinded me. Oh yeah! Once you get the frame put together as shown, you can set the last two trays on the little ledges cut into the frame.

Plants in 4″ pots fit perfectly into the sides of the Triolife. Since I’ve been re-reading Debra Lee Baldwin’s book Succulent Container Gardens, you know what theme I picked! Here’s my finished planter:

I was thrilled with how it came out. You could plant edibles, ornamentals, or whatever you wanted in there.

Want to win a Triolife container? Eartheasy’s kindly agreed to give one of you lucky readers a Triolife of your very own! All you have to do is comment for your chance to win. I’ll select a winner at random on Weds May 23rd. US only. For a second chance, head on over to Garden Rant, as Amy’s giving one away there as well!

Edit: Lucy’s the winner of the Triolife! Congrats, Lucy!

Oh how fun and functional. I live in a log house and I’m always on the lookout for unique wood planters to stay with that. This would look great on my deck planted with herbs, no strawberries, no alpines, oh gosh I could plant so many things in there!!!

I would love to win one! I have lots of 4″ succulents sitting around in individual pots that I hadn’t figured out how to display… until now! Thanks!

I had been thinking about planting some kind of hanging cherry tomatoes in it, but the succulents are lovely! Should I win, I will be in a bit of a dither.

I would love to put that in my front yard which I was thinking of using edibles, but I love the succulent look! I’m working on removing as much lawn as possible.

Oh, lovely! Would love to create a salad pyramid! Spinach, thyme, maybe some small lettuces, nasturia, other edible flowers. Yum. However, looking at the succulents, I might be persuaded to for a little less watering…

Gen! I love it! I want some succulents so bad but they are so expensive around here! I wonder if this would be good for herbs? :)

I changed my mind from strawberries to succulents after seeing your photo!

The succulents look great, but as my poor herb garden was fried when they tented our house for termites, I would have to go with herbs.

What a great concept. Simple, easy to put together and looks as though it would be easy to repair when the grandkids climb up to see what’s on top. (Some of us have to consider that, too.)

I wonder if I put some casters on the bottom if I could use it on my front porch and keep turning it so that all three sides get equal access to the sunshine. Hmmm…..

Now you’ve got me thinking. Keep up the great work with your blog. Very inspiring.

Totally cool, looks like it could fit in anywhere in the garden. I can see planting a load of different lettuces of various hews in it and then grazing from it all summer, or succulents on one level for aesthetic charm. I really hope you pick me. I need more yard art to offset the ever growing weeds.

Gen, I love the lines of the Triolife container and think your theme of succulents is the perfect complement to the sleek lines of the planter. I’d love to have one sitting on my deck…

Reply

Sue May 17, 2012 at 3:39 am

I have this empty space in my garden that was once a tree. That planter would look perfect on top of the stump and add a lot of interest. I ‘m a beginner gardener so I ‘m not sure what I would plant in it. Maybe plants that would cascade down the sides, sedums maybe. The planter would look like a fountain of plants.

Reply

Lucy May 17, 2012 at 5:06 am

I live in a townhouse with a tiny back patio and garden, so this kind of vertical gardening makes sense. My garden is a bit shady, so I’m thinking maybe a combination of heucheras, small ferns, and violas or pansies. In the heat of summer, I might use browallia or impatiens, and then substitute the pansies in the fall. Perhaps one of the hardier ivies for a trailer.

Reply

Todd Slowinski May 17, 2012 at 5:24 am

That would be perfect for herbs right outside my kitchen.

Reply

erin bailey May 17, 2012 at 6:30 am

I think that this is a very attractive improvement on the old strawberry tiered circle beds. It has structural beauty and would look great just outside my kitchen door filled with the herbs I use for cooking. Thanks for the opportunity to win free stuff!

Wow! A triangular planter. Something to tuck into that corner that nothing else fits in and a round pot would waste space! Some assembly required!

Cynthia May 17, 2012 at 8:16 am

I love what you did with your Triolife planter. Very beautiful. The video and step by step instructions make it look like an achievable project.

I think it might be fun to set up an herb garden in one of these right outside my back door. It would give me easy acces to the herbs and create a marvelous focal point on my patio.

It is a shame you aren’t throwing in the kitty though… LOL
She is a cutie!

This looks like the kind of things I could really use. Actually, I have two spots I would like to have one. The first one I would use for a small herb garden on the the back deck for myself. Then I would use the second one to plant strawberries and put on the other end of the deck. Guess I will have to purchase the second one if I win the first one. I really like the design, the style and the size of this container. Emily

that is neat ,, i live in an apartment complex that is for elderly and disabled, some here like gardening , but no place for us to do so ,, there at one time was a spot set side for such , but it got neglected and now used as a dog run. and those in wheelchair cannot get to the area as there is all lose rock all around , something like these , would be a cat’s meow ,,, and love the kitty ,, extra treats are in call for .

WOW! What a cute and fun little planter. I have just got into gardening. I moved from St. Louis, MO to Venice, CA. I love those little Cali cactus looking plants, before I moved here, I have never seen them…can’t wait to plant MORE ;)

I just left my mountain farm for a new house in town. I am slowly getting my new home ‘greening’ and this planter would fit it great!

What a cool idea. I just downsized from a condo to an apartment. I love the view from the new apartment but miss my yard. A cool planter like that I (or anyone) could make space for a kitchen garden.

I’m thinking herb garden to set up on the deck…which wil eventually be an outdoor kitchen (once I figure out how to afford that transformation)

What a unique planter! I love that it is made from wood that has not been stained!
It’s organic look and refined structure make for a beautiful display for any kind of
plant. I see it with a combination of flowering plants and fresh herbs.
I think the fact that you can put in 4″ pots and be able to move them around as
you like and it looks as if they are planted is what makes this so special.
I would love to have one of these to play with!! Nice product!!

This planter looks amazing! I would love to fill it with herbs & keep it on my patio; then, it’s only a few steps from the kitchen to harvest them when I cook…or, it could be a living salad bar with different lettuces & a cherry tomato plant or two on top. It would be fun to figure it out if it was mine!

What a beautiful planter! So many possibilities! It’s so “outside the box” I love when form and function meet on friendly and even inspirational terms!

I love this!! I think it would be great as an herb garden. Although your succulants look great and I do have a love affair going on with succulants.

Love it! My first thought, at seeing this amazing planter, was that it reminded me of the Myan’s. It IS 2012, but other than that, no idea why. This beauty could be the focal point indoors or out, in the middle of a humid hot Coastal yard or a surprise sight among cool ferns and moss covered rocks. The adventure of putting it together with someone special would make it a Memory sweet to revisit….and a Joy to watch it grow and change over the years.

SO stylish! I want to plant all kinds of things in this. We live on a corner so maybe some fun edibles and everyone who walks by can sneak a little nibble! It would be a gift to the neighborhood!
