Frequently Asked Questions
Here we answer some of the frequently asked questions about all things Modscene. Feel free to reach out if you have a question that isn't answered here. We would love to hear from you.
You can also visit our YouTube channel HERE to see some videos where we demonstrate our products and their durability.
Are Modscene planters lightweight?
Modscene planters are made of strong, lightweight polyethylene resin. They can be easily lifted into place without heavy lifting gear when they arrive on site. Just be sure to place them in the correct position before filling them, as they can be difficult to move once full.
Please take a look at our video about the weight of our planters HERE
How do Modscene products stand up to our strong UV rays?
Modscene products are extremely resistant to UV. They are made to last a lifetime and are fully UV stabilized for NZ conditions. We still have an original planter at Modscene made by Grandad in 1995. It is still strong and non-perished some 28 years from being made. Our products aren't a cheap knock-off. They are the real deal that will satisfy you for many years.
Does Modscene ever have sales or specials?
Thanks for asking. We don't have sales or specials at Modscene. We believe in providing high-quality products at a great price every day of the year.
What is your lead time if I order today?
Our lead times are great! We currently have a lead time of 4-6 days from the time of order to the time of dispatch.
How does Modscene fit in with the environment? Can Modscene products be recycled?
Modscene products are so safe that they can even be used to grow edibles in them. Made of a leach-free non-toxic material, they will never leach any nasties into their surrounding environment. In fact, they are so safe that water tanks for drinking water are made of the same material.
An important thing to keep in mind is that Modscene products are not one-time-use items. They are extremely durable and will be around for generations to come. Because of their extremely long lifespan (they are expected to last 30-50 years), they become carbon neutral long before their life expectancy. This is a huge benefit as planters allow more trees and shrubs in urban spaces, which benefits the environment and the health of those in it.
Modscene products are made with LDPE 4, one of the world's most recyclable materials. It can be recycled time and time again, making for a greener tomorrow. If, for some reason, you did want to recycle the products later, there are several drop points around NZ, including at Modscene.
Modscene is very environmentally conscious; any waste generated while making our products is recycled and reused. We believe in protecting our world today for a better tomorrow.
How do I clean my Modscene products?
Modscene products are best cleaned with a pressure washer or a hose on its most powerful setting. If you don't have access to either of these, a microfiber rag and some general household spray and wipe cleaner generally works.
Are Modscene planters suitable for indoor use?
All Modscene planters are suitable for indoor use. For indoors, we leave the base fully sealed so there is no risk of your planter ever leaking water or soil on your floor. For indoor planters, simply choose 'Indoor' when adding your planter to cart.
Does Modscene offer/do returns?
At Modscene, we make everything to order. Your order is made specifically for you in the correct size and colour. Modscene will not accept returns based on a change of heart/change of mind, so please ensure you are happy with the products before ordering. That includes ensuring the product size is right for you by measuring your space properly.
