“Glass reinforced concrete has enormous potential, as forms with incredible strength can be created from whisper thin skins. Richard Mackness has spent years developing his technique to produce planters that are completely in sync with their surroundings.”

– Rob Cassy, GDJ

“….As garden designers we are always looking for products that combine form and function beautifully. The Urbis pot does just this.”

– Philippa O’Brien MSGD, SGD’s Chair

“The gardens that we design often have patio areas, balconies or roof terraces that are finished with gorgeous impact plants in large patio pots. When we think of pots, we think Urbis. Richard Mackness’ pots contribute beautiful colours, elegant shapes and a superb contemporary look to an overall garden scheme.”

– Diarmuid Gavin, Garden Designs

“Urbis Design’s pieces instantly command the attention normally reserved for works of art which, of course, is precisely what they are.”
