USA TODAY - Halloween is just around the corner, but the award for best disguise can be given now to a speaker - yes, one of those things for listening to music - only this version also looks and acts like a planter.
So, if you want to spend the early days of fall in your garden while listening to Bach via a speaker that holds a plant, here's how you can. Part of the PlanterSpeakers line from Madison Fielding, the Sedona speaker can be placed in an outdoor space, be it on a patio, deck or porch.
Or if you prefer, you can move it indoors when the weather turns cold. Designed to rest inside a metal frame, the weatherized speaker has hidden speaker connections, a 6.5-inch full-range driver, a water drain and a removable planter pot.
Available in black, mocha, weathered stone, willow and red, the Sedona PlanterSpeaker is about 29 inches tall. Two speakers, which can provide sound for about 300 square feet, cost about $1,200. Need something a bit smaller? A pair of Mini PlanterSpeakers, which measure about 20 inches high, can be purchased for $600.
