Garden pedestals and plinths are specifically designed to raise a planter, urn, bust, sundial or statue from the ground and display it to its best effect. Here at Haddonstone, we make a stunning range of cast stone pedestals and garden plinths in both traditional and contemporary designs, in a wide selection of sizes to suit a variety of gardens and outdoor spaces.
We also have a collection of impressive garden pedestals designed by the prestigious New York architects’ practice, Robert A.M. Stern, which beautifully complement the stylish, modern Olympian and Athenian planters they also designed.
What is the difference between a pedestal and a plinth?
Both pedestals and plinths elevate decorative stone features, providing them with additional prominence and visibility. The terms “pedestal” and “plinth” are interchangeable and Haddonstone pedestals and plinths simply refer to the name each of our designs were given when originally created.
What foundations do I need to site my stone planters, pedestals & statues on?
It is essential that your Haddonstone design is sited on a firm and level foundation, to suit site conditions and loadings.
An 8-to-1 sand/cement bedding mortar should be used to ensure that the weight of your design is distributed evenly. This will help to prevent pivoting or twisting strain between your design and the foundation.
