Planter Boxes

35 large planter boxes now adorn the Hamilton V8 pit lane. Planted with 45l grade Portuguese Laurel these now form a backdrop to the site’s sculpture “Passing Red”.

The planter boxes are made from recycled plastic milk containers and wood shavings and were built by Rapid Construction in Pukekohe.

We have lined the boxes, provided filtering materials and used a screened topsoil and compost mix from Janiesons topsoil.

The sculpture and planter boxes will be moved to make way for pit lane for the duration of the V8 racing then returned to their current positions
