Aged Copper Village Collection planters, ready for packaging

The project was specified by SE Group from Burlington, VT (who ought to know a thing or two about designing ski locations), and installed by Rocky Mountain Custom Landscapes.  Recently our mountain-states representative Scott Doman visited the site, and sent back this description and the attached images.
