Letterboxes and Letterbox Design for the home and Garden
Letterboxes serve more than one function.
Well yes they do, not only do they act as a secure place to hold your mail, they also act as a design element that needs to be integrated into your fence or boundary.
Letterboxes need to suit not only the type and size of mail you receive they need to complement the design of your garden, fence and house.
Letter boxes can be made to stand out, or blend in depending on requirements. Modern materials include, sandstone, timber, copper, brass, aluminium and cast iron.
Do you know that Australia Post has a guide to letterbox design and placement….
A number of design considerations need to be met. They need to be functional, water proof, secure and aesthetically pleasing. They also need to be located where it is easy for letters to be delivered, and easy for you to pick them up. Numbers on the fence close to the letterbox need to be clearly visible, not only for mail delivery but also for making your house easy to find for deliveries, friends and emergencies.
