Plant liner is made of heavy gauge galvanized metal. The liner fits over the sides of the wheelbarrow. It is designed to allow plant pots to sit up to fully display your plants. This design provides drainage between the contact surfaces. This allows the wood to dry below the liner to help prevent wood rot.
