Frequently Asked Questions
Here we answer some of the frequently asked questions about all things Modscene. If you have a question that isn't answered here feel free to reach out. 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 extreme durability.
Question 1: Are Modscene planters lightweight?
Answer: Modscene planters are made of an extremely strong, yet lightweight polyethylene resin. This means that they can be easily lifted into place without the use of lifting gear when they arrive on site. Just be sure to place them in the correct place before filling them as once full they can be difficult to move.

Question 2: How do Modscene products stand up to our strong UV rays?
Answer: 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 that was made by grandad in 1995. It is still strong and non-perished some 27 years on from being made. Our products aren't a cheap knock-off. They are the real deal that will bring you satisfaction for many years to come.
Question 3: Does Modscene ever have sales or specials?
Answer: Thanks for asking. We don't have sales or specials at Modscene. We believe in providing high quality products at a great price everyday of the year.
Question 4: What is your lead time if I order today?
Answer: Our lead time varies a little, but we generally have a lead time of 2-4 days from the time of order to time of dispatch. If you are needing your order by a particular date just let us know and we will see what we can do for you.
Question 5: How does Modscene fit in with the environment? Can Modscene products be recycled?
Answer: 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 a one time use item. 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 which is one of the most recyclable materials in the world. It can be recycled time and time again making for a greener tomorrow. If for some reason you did want to recycle the products at a later date there are a number of drop points around NZ including at Modscene.
Modscene is very environmentally conscious and any waste generated while making our products is recycled and reused. We believe in protecting our world today for a better tomorrow.
Question 6: How do I clean my Modscene products?
Answer: 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.
Question 7: Are Modscene planters suitable for indoor use?
Answer: 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 'Indoor' when adding your planter to cart.
