Mounting AP's in Tree Planters

    Has anyone successly integrated AP's into tree planter boxes before? The closest example I can think of is under seat AP's at stadiums, but I haven't found anything more similar. This is for a hotel, large outdoor landscape and pool area but we cannot mount to the trees and there are no other tall structures availble. Lighting is all using small bollards low to the ground. 


    Planters are concrete so would can possible recess AP's into 2 sides of them, or bury in a brown-painted fiberglass enclosure just below top surface soil.

    I haven't heard of that specifically, but should be fine (cover all the environmental protections of course). Fiberglass is better than concrete. We have had lots of people put APs under fake landscaping rocks (fiberglass or plastic, usually to hide water and gas meters, etc).
