Restaurant Planters

To your prospective customers, the Restaurant Planters outside your restaurant establish their expectation about the food, service, and cleanliness inside. We recommend that you’re better off not buying planters than to have shabby, poorly maintained ones around your property.

DeepStream Designs manufactures landscape architect-grade Restaurant Planters out of tropical hardwood, no-maintenance recycled plastic lumber, aluminum, and rugged custom-welded HDPE plastic. Commercial Restaurant Planters and coordinating fixtures are engineered and handcrafted by DeepStream in America to meet the demanding standards of fine dining restaurants.

Our entire line of commercial planters will delineate an outdoor seating area, controlling access, and act as planter dividers between seating areas creating intimate upscale exterior spaces with the same exacting attention to form and function details as your interior spaces.

Our custom commercial restaurant planters use nature to maximize customers’ attraction and comfort, while minimizing maintenance costs. DeepStream’s commitment to the principles of sustainable design provide the lowest total cost of ownership for both your business and the environment.  We also wholesale high-quality commercial FRP fiberglass and GFRC concrete planters, aluminum, and food safe plastic commercial planters.

Large Wood Restaurant Planters create a moveable modular glass screen wall for this upscale restaurants outdoor seating area, controlling access, quieting noise, and extending the dining season.

Our Custom Restaurant Planters are available as both individual planters and as money-saving modular multi-section planters. The structural aluminum frame is engineered to allow practical Planters with Gates, Planters on Wheels, and Planters with Screen Wall attached.

DeepStream’s Restaurant Planters with wooden planter boxes are engineered with our trademark marine-anodized aluminum legs creating a hidden structural aluminum frame that supports a waterproof liner with advanced drainage. This unique frame is designed to mount accessories like casters, trellises, gates, lighting, and screen wall for windbreaks, privacy, or security while hiding drip irrigation and drainage systems and wiring for lights or enclosing stereo speakers.

DeepStream uses the principles of Sustainable Design to engineer its Mariner Commercial Wood Planter with a separate tongue and groove wood box held inside the slots of our trademark structural extruded anodized aluminum legs without fasteners. This allows the wood to expand and contract through endless wet and dry cycles without tearing itself apart, as will happen with carpenter-built planter techniques. The legs attach to a hidden structural aluminum frame that holds a waterproof planter liner and accessories. Lifetime Structural Warranty, with no paint or powder coating to fail.

As the Restaurant Planter’s planks are held by the structural marine-anodized extrusions, not fasteners that tear apart in the endless wet and dry cycles, the planter will last for decades. They are backed by a Lifetime Structural Warranty and there is no paint or powder coating to fail.

Don’t confuse our commercial wood Restaurant Planters with carpenter-built boxes that will fall apart in 3-5 years. DeepStream’s wood restaurant planters are a complete engineered 3-part planter system with replaceable parts and Lifetime Structural Warranty:

  • Anodized extruded aluminum legs, with no paint or powder coating to fail, are engineered to eliminate fasteners and contain the tremendous expansionary forces of wood as it cycles through countless wet and dry cycles. The legs support the hidden structural aircraft aluminum frame and are isolated from surfaces by replaceable HDPE plastic feet.
  • A separate planter box with an almost unlimited choice of panel materials, including ever-popular tropical hardwood and maintenance-free recycled plastic lumber. The planter box provides an air gap between it and the liner, which prevents solar gain from heating the root ball and hides drip irrigation and drainage systems.
  • Rugged waterproof, food-safe, UV-resistant, 100% recycled LLDPE plastic rotomolded planter liners with advanced drainage and threaded drain ports.

Whether you are creating a sidewalk cafe on a busy street or quiet courtyard space, DeepStream knows it is critical that your potential customer receive an inviting visual message from the space created by our Restaurant Planters that is consistent with your own commitment to a quality dining experience inside.  Ugly, rotting wood planters that are falling apart, or chipped and scratched fiberglass planters in front of your restaurant are worse than no planters at all.

Modern narrow wood and aluminum restaurant planters create an outdoor cafe under the palms on a tropical Miami sidewalk.
Don’t confuse DeepStream’s Restaurant Planters for carpenter-built planters you see quickly falling apart. Backed by a Lifetime Structural Warranty, DeepStream planters are a complete 3-part system with marine-anodized aluminum legs, separate planter box, rugged hidden structural aluminum frame engineered to mount accessories like screen wall, trellis, gates, and casters, and not added as an afterthought. No paint or powder coating to fail.

When space is at a premium for your sidewalk cafe, DeepStream has 12″ and 18″ wide planters with a separate plastic liner inside the outer facade which incorporates state-of-the-art drainage. The rugged rotomolded liner ensures maximum durability, as the planting medium never touches the wood and the harshest sun does not bake the root ball, which causes unsightly plantings. Our design also easily conceals labor and water-saving drip irrigation lines between the liner and box.

We have the planters and custom fixtures you have been looking for if your successful, busy, upscale restaurant cannot afford the time, money, disruption, mess, damage, and inconvenience required to replace carpenter-built wood or lightweight fiberglass planters again and again as they tear themselves apart in just a few years.

DeepStream Plastic Liners and 3-layer Drain Pads with TREMdrain & Biobarrier complete your Wood Planter

When selecting your outdoor planters, keep in mind that drainage is critical to the health of your plants grown in containers, and it is very difficult to remedy after the fact.

DeepStream pioneered modern drainage practices with side-wall drains and 3-layer drain filter pads. DeepStream places from one to three 3/4″ threaded drainage ports on its 16 proprietary stock plastic planter liners, to which various plugs, hose barbs, and valves may be attached.  Liners are non-structural and are meant to be placed inside planter boxes.

DeepStream commercial planter liners with advanced drainage.

Generally, more container-grown plants die from drowning than from lack of water. “Old school” drain holes on the bottom and gravel drainage medium simply do not work and will quickly clog.  DeepStream elevates the drainage hole center approximately 2″ up the sides of your liners to provide a “reservoir” for the tap roots and allow clay “fines” in all planting mediums to settle instead of clogging drain packs.

Detailed photo on a tropical roof terrace showing how easy DeepStream's tapered stock planter liners with advanced drainage make it to replant and recondition roots.
DeepStream’s tapered stock planter liners with advanced drainage make them economical to ship and easy to replant and recondition roots.

Planter liners prevent the soil from contacting the wood, preventing rot, while promoting drainage. The air space the liner creates between itself and the planter box prevents the root-ball from getting warmer than the ambient air. This space also allows you to hide drip irrigation lines and wiring for lights. The tapered shape reduces shipping costs, and makes root conditioning and replanting slide-out-easy.

Tips for improving Planter Drainage

Drain packs must be used in conjunction with a proper planting medium for container gardening, and inorganic filtering material to slow the drainage water so that any clay “fines” that could coat the geotextile will instead settle to the bottom of the liner below the side-wall drain.

  • When selecting your outdoor planters, keep in mind that drainage is critical to the health of your plants grown in containers, and it is very difficult to remedy after the fact. The design of the planter liner is one of the important components.
  • Generally, more tended plants die from drowning than from lack of water. “Old school” drain holes on the bottom and gravel drainage medium simply do not work and will quickly clog.  DeepStream elevates the drainage hole center approximately 2″ up the sides of your liners to provide a “reservoir” for the tap roots, but more importantly, that space allows clay “fines” present in all most all planting mediums to settle instead of clogging drain packs.
  • DeepStream pioneered modern drainage practices with side-wall drains and 3-layer drain filter packs. DeepStream places from one to three 3/4″ threaded drainage ports on its 16 stock proprietary plastic planter liners, to which various plugs, hose barbs and valves may be attached.  Liners are non-structural and are meant to be placed inside planter boxes.
  • Depending on your plants, planting mixture, and local climate, you may need to add more drains.  Additional drain holes can be added as required by drilling additional holes in the side walls with a hole saw bit. If additional threaded ports are needed we stock two-part watertight bulkhead fittings.
  • Planting mediums for container gardening are as varied as local climates and plant species.  Here in Florida, we can get 6” of rain in a day in the rainy season, so we need a quick draining material and we often add perlite. If you have a dry climate, you may need to add more vermiculite to retain water.  Since Florida also has a dry season where it my not rain for a month or more at a time, we use drip irrigation, as the planting medium we use for the rainy season dries out far too quickly during the dry season.  For more in-depth information on drip irrigation, drainage, and the many aspects of container gardening check the Helpful Resource Links to planterblog.com listed at the bottom of this page.

Aluminum Planters

In keeping with DeepStream’s commitment to Sustainable Design and craftsmanship, we create square and rectangular commercial grade Aluminum Planters in a natural finish 5086 Marine alloy. We also wholesale popular, cost-effective aluminum planters manufactured from 5052 alloy and powder coated for us in any color a customer specifies.

Modern tall rectangular aluminum planters with slate grey powder coating accent clean crisp modern architecture and windows of a modern gray brick building with natural wood clad overhangs and dramatic downlighting at night.
Modern rectangular aluminum planters are available in heights from 16″ to 32″ and 10″ to 40″ wide and 32″ to 46″ long, with larger custom sizes available. Formed for rigidity and strength, thinner gauge aluminum is an economical option. Powder coated and painted planters are available in custom colors inside and out to meet your project specifications. All planters include 3/8” drain holes and sit on 1/2″ rubber feet to allow drainage and prevent corrosion, which can affect any painted surface.

Short or tall, fashionable powder coated round, rectangular, and square aluminum planters have clean modern lines.

Thinner, powder coated 5052 aluminum planters are a cost- conscious option that can be built to custom sizes in rectangular, square, tapered, or round shapes, with a folded-over lip for strength and rigidity, then given a powder coat finish in any color.

Whether you choose square, rectangular, round, or tapered planters, aluminum is one of the most common and durable elements on earth. While we highly recommend leaving Aluminum planters in their natural sanded aluminum finish, they may be painted or powder coated with any color.  

The strength of aluminum over fiberglass makes it a good choice to contain trees and plantings with aggressive roots.  Because aluminum is so easy to work with, it is an ideal medium for custom planters, so contact us for a quotation for your specific needs.

5052 alloy aluminum is used in ship construction, so your planters will last virtually forever.  Because aluminum is so easily and cost-effectively recycled, selecting aluminum planters are a more environmentally sound selection than wood, and are far more durable than fiberglass.

This Budget Price List gives approximate values for Costs, Dimensions, Volume, and Weight for modern powder coated Aluminum Planters. Aluminum is a volatile commodity; call for current pricing.

Prices and warranty of Aluminum Planters are highly dependent on the alloy, thickness, and what finish you choose.

Unpainted “natural” 5086 aluminum planters manufactured by DeepStream have a 10-year structural warranty. The natural finish will develop a deeper patina over the years providing even more protection, if you prefer the bright aluminum finish they may be easily and quickly refinished in place with a power sander. Bare aluminum planters should last for decades, provided they have not been exposed to hydrochloric or sulphuric acid, caustic soda, copper, or potassium, all of which have aggressive action on any aluminum.  If you need to add any of those elements to your soil mixture for any reason, then you should also order a plastic liner.

DeepStream’s Square and Rectangular Modern Aluminum Planters are commercial Landscape Architect grade, made with 5086 3/16″ thick marine-grade aluminum, as used on yachts and commercial ships. They are the strongest and most durable aluminum planters available. 

While the total lifetime cost of DeepStream’s Aluminum planters will be many times less than that of painted aluminum planters, even if you only own them for 5-10 years, the initial cost is higher. It simply takes more labor to produce flawless unpainted aluminum planters, and the more rigid and expensive 5086 marine alloy we use is 3 times thicker than standard aluminum planters. However 5086 aluminum, left in its natural state, creates its own patina that protects it from oxidation in demanding marine environments for decades.

Backed by a Lifetime Structural Warranty, all parts are replaceable and there is no paint or powder coating to fail. They will never crack like fiberglass planters can.

DeepStream Plastic Liners and 3-layer Drain Pads with TREMdrain & Biobarrier complete your Wood Planter

When selecting your outdoor planters, keep in mind that drainage is critical to the health of your plants grown in containers, and it is very difficult to remedy after the fact.

DeepStream pioneered modern drainage practices with side-wall drains and 3-layer drain filter pads. DeepStream places from one to three 3/4″ threaded drainage ports on its 16 proprietary stock plastic planter liners, to which various plugs, hose barbs, and valves may be attached.  Liners are non-structural and are meant to be placed inside planter boxes.

Generally, more container-grown plants die from drowning than from lack of water. “Old school” drain holes on the bottom and gravel drainage medium simply do not work and will quickly clog.  DeepStream elevates the drainage hole center approximately 2″ up the sides of your liners to provide a “reservoir” for the tap roots and allow clay “fines” in all planting mediums to settle instead of clogging drain packs.

DeepStream’s tapered stock planter liners with advanced drainage make them economical to ship and easy to replant and recondition roots.

Planter liners prevent the soil from contacting the wood, preventing rot, while promoting drainage. The air space the liner creates between itself and the planter box prevents the root-ball from getting warmer than the ambient air. This space also allows you to hide drip irrigation lines and wiring for lights. The tapered shape reduces shipping costs, and makes root conditioning and replanting slide-out-easy.

DeepStream Plastic Liners and 3-layer Drain Pads with TREMdrain & Biobarrier complete your Wood Planter

When selecting your outdoor planters, keep in mind that drainage is critical to the health of your plants grown in containers, and it is very difficult to remedy after the fact.

DeepStream pioneered modern drainage practices with side-wall drains and 3-layer drain filter pads. DeepStream places from one to three 3/4″ threaded drainage ports on its 16 proprietary stock plastic planter liners, to which various plugs, hose barbs, and valves may be attached.  Liners are non-structural and are meant to be placed inside planter boxes.

DeepStream commercial planter liners with advanced drainage.

Generally, more container-grown plants die from drowning than from lack of water. “Old school” drain holes on the bottom and gravel drainage medium simply do not work and will quickly clog.  DeepStream elevates the drainage hole center approximately 2″ up the sides of your liners to provide a “reservoir” for the tap roots and allow clay “fines” in all planting mediums to settle instead of clogging drain packs.

DeepStream’s tapered stock planter liners with advanced drainage make them economical to ship and easy to replant and recondition roots.

Planter liners prevent the soil from contacting the wood, preventing rot, while promoting drainage. The air space the liner creates between itself and the planter box prevents the root-ball from getting warmer than the ambient air. This space also allows you to hide drip irrigation lines and wiring for lights. The tapered shape reduces shipping costs, and makes root conditioning and replanting slide-out-easy.

Depending on your plants, planting mixture, and local weather, you may need to add more drains.  Additional drain holes can be added as required by drilling additional holes in the side walls.

DeepStream’s advanced 3-Layer Drain Pad

Drain pads, when used in conjunction with clean 1-2 mm inorganic drainage material to slow the flow of the water to the drain, could prevent clogged drains for a decade or more. Biobarrier will not stop aggressive root systems like runner bamboo and Clusia.

Tips for improving Planter Drainage

Drain packs must be used in conjunction with a proper planting medium for container gardening, and inorganic filtering material to slow the drainage water so that any clay “fines” that could coat the geotextile will instead settle to the bottom of the liner below the side-wall drain.

  • Depending on your plants, planting mixture, and local climate, you may need to add more drains.  Additional drain holes can be added as required by drilling additional holes in the side walls with a hole saw bit. If additional threaded ports are needed we stock two-part watertight bulkhead fittings.
  • Planting mediums for container gardening are as varied as local climates and plant species.  Here in Florida, we can get 6” of rain in a day in the rainy season, so we need a quick draining material and we often add perlite. If you have a dry climate, you may need to add more vermiculite to retain water.  Since Florida also has a dry season where it my not rain for a month or more at a time, we use drip irrigation, as the planting medium we use for the rainy season dries out far too quickly during the dry season.  For more in-depth information on drip irrigation, drainage, and the many aspects of container gardening check the Helpful Resource Links to planterblog.com listed at the bottom of this page.

This liner inside of the wood planter box design prevents the wood from rotting and creates a thermal gap between the wood planter box and the liner preventing solar gain from heating the root ball. This gap not only ensures the best growing condition for landscaping, like these Birds of Paradise, the gap allows for a hidden drip and drainage systems and even wiring for lights or speakers.

Two types of Food Safe Plastic Garden Planters

Food Safe Plastic Garden Planters welded from HDPE sheet are stronger and less expensive than fiberglass planters. Made from solid sheets of HDPE plastic, or planks of recycled plastic, they are a solid color throughout so they don’t show scratches in the same way fiberglass or painted metal planters do. HDPE will not absorb paint or dirt and as they are not painted they may be pressure washed for sanitation. Graffiti may be removed with paint remover or a light sanding so they are perfect for rugged urban street life.

DeepStream Plastic Liners and 3-layer Drain Pads with TREMdrain & Biobarrier complete your Wood Planter

When selecting your outdoor planters, keep in mind that drainage is critical to the health of your plants grown in containers, and it is very difficult to remedy after the fact.

DeepStream pioneered modern drainage practices with side-wall drains and 3-layer drain filter pads. DeepStream places from one to three 3/4″ threaded drainage ports on its 16 proprietary stock plastic planter liners, to which various plugs, hose barbs, and valves may be attached.  Liners are non-structural and are meant to be placed inside planter boxes.

DeepStream Designs rugged 100% recycled Stock Plastic Planter Liners
16 different size and shaped commercial planter liners are displayed on a tropical roof top deck landscaped with green palms trees, bamboo, and podocarpus. A large man is standing on top of one of the garden planter liners to show how strong they are.
DeepStream commercial planter liners with advanced drainage.

Generally, more container-grown plants die from drowning than from lack of water. “Old school” drain holes on the bottom and gravel drainage medium simply do not work and will quickly clog.  DeepStream elevates the drainage hole center approximately 2″ up the sides of your liners to provide a “reservoir” for the tap roots and allow clay “fines” in all planting mediums to settle instead of clogging drain packs.

Detailed photo on a tropical roof terrace showing how easy DeepStream's tapered stock planter liners with advanced drainage make it to replant and recondition roots.
DeepStream’s tapered stock planter liners with advanced drainage make them economical to ship and easy to replant and recondition roots.

Planter liners prevent the soil from contacting the wood, preventing rot, while promoting drainage. The air space the liner creates between itself and the planter box prevents the root-ball from getting warmer than the ambient air. This space also allows you to hide drip irrigation lines and wiring for lights. The tapered shape reduces shipping costs, and makes root conditioning and replanting slide-out-easy.

These Custom-Welded Modular Planter Liners for a large commercial roof deck landscaping project are equipped with hidden drainage and drip irrigation.

Depending on your plants, planting mixture, and local weather, you may need to add more drains.  Additional drain holes can be added as required by drilling additional holes in the side walls.

DeepStream’s advanced 3-Layer Drain Pad

Drain pads, when used in conjunction with clean 1-2 mm inorganic drainage material to slow the flow of the water to the drain, could prevent clogged drains for a decade or more. Biobarrier will not stop aggressive root systems like runner bamboo and Clusia.

Commercial Wood Planters

DeepStream’s Commercial Wood Planters, unlike fiberglass or carpenter built wood planters, are the only commercial planter with a Lifetime Structural Warranty.

Proprietary trademark marine anodized aluminum legs and hidden structural aluminum frame are engineered to provide the lowest total cost of ownership over time for you and the environment. DeepStream custom makes each planter to meet your exact needs, so even our long and large Commercial Wood planters will last for decades.

Three 48" square commercial Mariner Ipe Wood Planters provide a large area for bushes and diverse landscaping seen here flanking an example of California modern high-tech architecture featuring wood and natural materials.
DeepStream’s 48″ Square Commercial Wood Planters can hold trees, bushes, or provide a large area for more diverse landscaping, as seen here in California. Watering restrictions make drip irrigation systems mandatory, and these planters, with a hidden structural aluminum frame supporting a waterproof liner, conserve water and hide the irrigation and advanced drainage system.

Don’t confuse these planters for carpenter-built planters that will fall apart in 3-5 years, or fiberglass planters with a 3-year warranty. This is a complete commercial landscaping system for those who can not afford the time, money, mess, inconvenience, and potential damage required to replace carpenter-built wood planters or fiberglass planters again and again. Although an investment these planters will deliver the lowest total cost of ownership over thier lifetime. To skip ahead to budget pricing for individual planters with dimension that fit stock liners follow this on page link.

7 Modern Commercial Wood Planters handcrafted with Ipe and aluminum create a unique outdoor cafe under the palms on a tropical Miami sidewalk.
Don’t confuse DeepStream’s Commercial Wood Planters for carpenter-built planters you see quickly falling apart; these will last for decades. Backed by a Lifetime Structural Warranty, not 3 years like fiberglass planters, these garden planters are a complete 3-component commercial landscaping system with marine-anodized aluminum legs, separate waterproof planter box, and rugged hidden structural aluminum frame engineered to mount accessories like screen wall, trellis, gates, and casters — not added as an afterthought. No paint or powder coating to fail. The cafe design of these raised wood planter boxes helps prevent health code violations by making it easy to clean underneath, giving pests no places to hide.

Square and rectangular Commercial Wood Planters are available both as stand-alone planters up to 72″, or money-saving long multi-section planters of unlimited length. Both are available in natural 3/4″ thick tongue and groove solid tropical wood like Ipe, and environmentally friendly no-maintenance recycled plastic lumber.

A 72" long rectangular Commercial Wood Planter landscaped with tall flowering Birds of Paradise creates a dramatic living screen wall.
DeepStream Designs builds all Planters to order, and we can build almost any size from 18” – 72” long and 12” – 72” wide. We stock three standard leg heights: 21”, 31” and 42″. 

Don’t confuse our Mariner Modern Long Commercial Planters with carpenter-built boxes that will fall apart in 3-5 years. These are a complete 3-component engineered Landscaping System:

  • Anodized extruded aluminum legs, with no paint or powder coating to fail, engineered to eliminate fasteners and contain the tremendous expansionary forces of wood as it cycles through countless wet and dry cycles. The legs support the hidden structural aircraft aluminum frame and are isolated from surfaces by replaceable HDPE plastic feet. Using legs of varying heights, we create an integral frame that supports accessories like screen wall, trellis, gates, and casters by design, not as an afterthought.
  • A separate planter box with an almost unlimited choice of panel materials, including ever-popular tropical hardwood and maintenance-free recycled plastic lumber. The planter box provides an air gap between it and the liner, which prevents solar gain from heating the root ball and hides drip irrigation and drainage systems.
  • Rugged waterproof, food-safe, UV-resistant, 100% recycled LLDPE plastic rotomolded liners with advanced drainage and threaded drain ports.

To ensure Commercial Wood Planters will last for decades, planks are held in place by the deep slots of the proprietary structural marine anodized extrusion, not fasteners that tear apart in the endless wet and dry cycles that cause the planks to expand and contract. The separate waterproof liner has advanced drainage and provides a thermal break against solar gain. Backed by a Lifetime Structural Warranty, all parts are replaceable and there is no paint or powder coating to fail. They will never crack like fiberglass planters.

DeepStream uses the principles of Sustainable Design to engineer its Commercial Wood Planters with a separate tongue and groove wood planter box held inside the slots of our trademark structural extruded anodized aluminum legs without fasteners. This allows the wood to expand and contract through endless wet and dry cycles without tearing itself apart as will happen with carpenter-built planter techniques. The legs attach to a hidden structural aluminum frame hold a waterproof planter liner and accessories. Lifetime Structural Warranty, with no paint or powder coating to fail. All parts are replaceable.

These modern Multi-Section Commercial Wood Planters, with integrated glass security screen wall, create a protective access barrier between a lounging area and a pool. DeepStream’s lightweight structural aluminum modular frame design is often chosen by Architects converting urban industrial loft buildings into office or condo spaces, as no cranes are required for installations and there are no costly, troublesome penetrations of the roof membrane to anchor screen walls. As “temporary structures,” they usually do not require the same permitting process and allow access to the roof under pavers or decking for repairs.

PRICES are based on standard sizes to fit our stock planter liners which are created around using the best material yield and most popular sizes. While there are volume discounts, there is never a design fee or custom fee. Custom planters really do not cost more, but prices vary depending on size, material yields, and set up times. You may also need a custom-welded planter liner which will cost more than a stock planter liner.

If you do order natural hardwood, unlike carpenter-built planters, with DeepStream’s trademark anodized aluminum extrusions you know that your purchase will last for decades and not waste this precious resource.

DeepStream Plastic Liners and 3-layer Drain Pads with TREMdrain & Biobarrier complete your Wood Planter

When selecting your outdoor planters, keep in mind that drainage is critical to the health of your plants grown in containers, and it is very difficult to remedy after the fact.

DeepStream pioneered modern drainage practices with side-wall drains and 3-layer drain filter pads. DeepStream places from one to three 3/4″ threaded drainage ports on its 16 proprietary stock plastic planter liners, to which various plugs, hose barbs, and valves may be attached.  Liners are non-structural and are meant to be placed inside planter boxes.

16 different size and shaped commercial planter liners are displayed on a tropical roof top deck landscaped with green palms trees, bamboo, and podocarpus. A large man is standing on top of one of the garden planter liners to show how strong they are.
DeepStream commercial planter liners with advanced drainage.

Generally, more container-grown plants die from drowning than from lack of water. “Old school” drain holes on the bottom and gravel drainage medium simply do not work and will quickly clog.  DeepStream elevates the drainage hole center approximately 2″ up the sides of your liners to provide a “reservoir” for the tap roots and allow clay “fines” in all planting mediums to settle instead of clogging drain packs.

DeepStream’s tapered stock planter liners with advanced drainage make them economical to ship and easy to replant and recondition roots.

Planter liners prevent the soil from contacting the wood, preventing rot, while promoting drainage. The air space the liner creates between itself and the planter box prevents the root-ball from getting warmer than the ambient air. This space also allows you to hide drip irrigation lines and wiring for lights. The tapered shape reduces shipping costs, and makes root conditioning and replanting slide-out-easy.

These Custom-Welded Modular Planter Liners for a large commercial roof deck landscaping project are equipped with hidden drainage and drip irrigation.

Depending on your plants, planting mixture, and local weather, you may need to add more drains.  Additional drain holes can be added as required by drilling additional holes in the side walls.

DeepStream’s advanced 3-Layer Drain Pad

Drain pads, when used in conjunction with clean 1-2 mm inorganic drainage material to slow the flow of the water to the drain, could prevent clogged drains for a decade or more. Biobarrier will not stop aggressive root systems like runner bamboo and Clusia.

Tips for improving Planter Drainage

Drain packs must be used in conjunction with a proper planting medium for container gardening, and inorganic filtering material to slow the drainage water so that any clay “fines” that could coat the geotextile will instead settle to the bottom of the liner below the side-wall drain.

  • When selecting your outdoor planters, keep in mind that drainage is critical to the health of your plants grown in containers, and it is very difficult to remedy after the fact. The design of the planter liner is one of the important components.
  • Generally, more tended plants die from drowning than from lack of water. “Old school” drain holes on the bottom and gravel drainage medium simply do not work and will quickly clog.  DeepStream elevates the drainage hole center approximately 2″ up the sides of your liners to provide a “reservoir” for the tap roots, but more importantly, that space allows clay “fines” present in all most all planting mediums to settle instead of clogging drain packs.
  • DeepStream pioneered modern drainage practices with side-wall drains and 3-layer drain filter packs. DeepStream places from one to three 3/4″ threaded drainage ports on its 16 stock proprietary plastic planter liners, to which various plugs, hose barbs and valves may be attached.  Liners are non-structural and are meant to be placed inside planter boxes.
  • Depending on your plants, planting mixture, and local climate, you may need to add more drains.  Additional drain holes can be added as required by drilling additional holes in the side walls with a hole saw bit. If additional threaded ports are needed we stock two-part watertight bulkhead fittings.
  • Planting mediums for container gardening are as varied as local climates and plant species.  Here in Florida, we can get 6” of rain in a day in the rainy season, so we need a quick draining material and we often add perlite. If you have a dry climate, you may need to add more vermiculite to retain water.  Since Florida also has a dry season where it my not rain for a month or more at a time, we use drip irrigation, as the planting medium we use for the rainy season dries out far too quickly during the dry season.  For more in-depth information on drip irrigation, drainage, and the many aspects of container gardening check the Helpful Resource Links to planterblog.com listed at the bottom of this page.

Mariner Wood Planters

Mariner Commercial Wood Garden Planters, with a Lifetime Structural Warranty, are a 3-component system engineered to meet the demanding requirements of Landscape Architects and urban dwellers.

Do it right, do it once. No messing around, landscaping doesn’t get any easier, or more durable, than Mariner Wood Garden Planters. Custom built by American craftsmen to any size.

Don’t confuse these wood planters for carpenter built wood planters you see rotting and falling apart.

7 long rectangular Modern Commercial Mariner Wood Planters with aluminum legs create an outdoor café under the palms on a tropical Miami sidewalk.
Mariner Commercial Wood Garden Planters are a complete 3-component system which comprises a separate planter box and trademark marine-anodized aluminum legs integrating a hidden structural aluminum frame engineered to support a waterproof liner with advanced drainage. No paint or powder coating to fail.

For almost two decades Landscape Architects and homeowners have relied on DeepStream’s trademark marine-anodized aluminum leg, hidden structural aluminum frame, and separate planter liner to ensure the durability of the Mariner Wood Garden Planter for generations to come. This on page link will take you to examples of budget pricing for a sample of individual planter sizes that use DeepStreams stock plastic liners, multi-section planters are less expensive per linear foot if you need long planters.

Mariner Commercial Wood Garden Planters have a modern minimalist design that transcends time.

Two large Long Wood Garden Planters separate a seating area, with blue couches, from a dining area on this urban roof terrace with a dramatic backdrop of skyrise buildings along the Chicago River.
The modular design of the lightweight structural aluminum frame creates Long Wood Garden Planters complete with food safe waterproof planter liners with advanced drainage. These very large, long, planters were able to be installed without the need of a crane or special equipment on the roof terrace of this historic urban Chicago building. Assembly time was only 15 – 20 minutes per planter with no mess to clean up afterwards.

DeepStream Commercial Mariner Wood Garden Planters are a complete 3-component engineered planter system designed to meet the demanding requirements of our customers: Architects, Landscape Architects, restaurants, hotels, healthcare facilities , governments, transportation hubs, airports, and urban dwellers.

Don’t confuse our Modern Commercial Mariner Wood Planter system with carpenter-built boxes that will fall apart in 3-5 years:

  • Anodized extruded aluminum legs, with no paint or powder coating to fail, are engineered to eliminate fasteners and contain the tremendous expansionary forces of wood as it cycles through countless wet and dry cycles. The legs support the hidden structural aircraft aluminum frame and are isolated from surfaces by replaceable HDPE plastic feet. Using different height legs, we create an integral frame that supports accessories like screen wall, trellis, gates, and casters by design, not as an afterthought.
  • A separate wood planter box with an almost unlimited choice of panel materials, including ever popular tropical hardwood and maintenance-free recycled plastic lumber. The planter box provides an air gap between it and the liner, which prevents solar gain from heating the root ball and hides drip irrigation and drainage systems.
  • Rugged waterproof, food-safe, UV-resistant, 100% recycled LLDPE plastic rotomolded planter liners with advanced drainage and threaded drain ports.

DeepStream’s trademark extruded marine-anodized aluminum legs and hidden frame used to create wood garden planters with a seperate planter liner are engineered to support many options by design, not as an afterthought, including trellis, hidden casters, and integrated screen walls for privacy, security, and sound attenuation.

The high-volume rectangular and square-shaped Mariner wood garden planters are a cost-effective, durable, modern addition to the design palette of landscaping professionals and urban gardeners alike. Lightweight, they are well-suited for balcony and green roof installations, as well as pool decks, lobbies, restaurants and walkways.

A 72" long rectangular Modern commercial Mariner Wood Planter landscaped with tall flowering Birds of Paradise creates a dramatic screen wall.
Modern Mariner Wood Garden Planter Boxes have a hidden structural aluminum frame supporting a separate waterproof liner with advanced drainage. This creates an air gap between the wood planter box and the liner, preventing solar gain from overheating the root ball. This gap not only ensures the best growing condition for landscaping, like these Birds of Paradise, but it also allows for a hidden drip irrigation option.

Sustainably Designed, Deceptively Simple, Highly Efficient:

  • Modular garden planter design allows any part to be replaced in case of damage at any time, so you don’t have to replace the whole planter to maintain your visual standards.
  • Value-engineering options include removing or minimizing costly hidden panels that will not be visible, and long modular planter runs created around standard planter liner lengths without the expense of duplicate end panels.
  • Built from 3/4″ environmentally friendly no-maintenance recycled plastic lumber or tropical hardwood planking. Natural wood options include: Ipe, Jatoba (Brazilian Cherry), Cumaru (Brazilian Teak).
  • Wood is finished with wipe-on-easy Ipe Oil.
  • DeepStream’s proprietary extruded legs of 6063-T5 aluminum are finished with a durable etched marine-anodized finish. There is no paint or powder coating to fail.
  • Replaceable feet are non-marring HDPE plastic which galvanically isolates the aluminum legs and frame. Lockable security clip option.
  • Stainless steel fasteners are installed with a proprietary dielectric marine paste to prevent corrosion and allow component replacement decades later.
  • Aluminum suspension bars support a plastic liner or pot shelf.
  • Stand-alone Mariner Wood Garden Planters ship fully assembled, but can be disassembled for flat storage in 15 minutes. Modular Long Wood Garden Planters are typically shipped with every other section disassembled to reduce shipping cost. Joining sections with planks and angle is slip-in easy, about 12 – 15 minutes per section.
  • Custom sizes available, there is never a design fee, and we offer volume discounts.

An amazing product, this Jakob stainless steel mesh is not really necessary to support most vines and is expensive overkill. While the mesh size can be enlarged to reduce the cost and still effectively allow the vine to grow, stainless steel rods are actually more practical and cost effective for most trellis applications.

DeepStream planter options include integrated uprights to hold trellis created from Jakob Swiss stainless-steel mesh which, frankly, is overkill for most applications, or less expensive horizontal stainless steel rod at spacings appropriate for your intended landscaping needs.

DeepStream Plastic Liners and 3-layer Drain Pads with TREMdrain & Biobarrier complete your Wood Planter

When selecting your outdoor planters, keep in mind that drainage is critical to the health of your plants grown in containers, and it is very difficult to remedy after the fact.

DeepStream pioneered modern drainage practices with side-wall drains and 3-layer drain filter pads. DeepStream places from one to three 3/4″ threaded drainage ports on its 16 proprietary stock plastic planter liners, to which various plugs, hose barbs, and valves may be attached.  Liners are non-structural and are meant to be placed inside planter boxes.

Generally, more container-grown plants die from drowning than from lack of water. “Old school” drain holes on the bottom and gravel drainage medium simply do not work and will quickly clog.  DeepStream elevates the drainage hole center approximately 2″ up the sides of your liners to provide a “reservoir” for the tap roots and allow clay “fines” in all planting mediums to settle instead of clogging drain packs.

DeepStream’s tapered stock planter liners with advanced drainage make them economical to ship and easy to replant and recondition roots.

Planter liners prevent the soil from contacting the wood, preventing rot, while promoting drainage. The air space the liner creates between itself and the planter box prevents the root-ball from getting warmer than the ambient air. This space also allows you to hide drip irrigation lines and wiring for lights. The tapered shape reduces shipping costs, and makes root conditioning and replanting slide-out-easy.

Depending on your plants, planting mixture, and local weather, you may need to add more drains.  Additional drain holes can be added as required by drilling additional holes in the side walls.

DeepStream’s advanced 3-Layer Drain Pad

Drain pads, when used in conjunction with clean 1-2 mm inorganic drainage material to slow the flow of the water to the drain, could prevent clogged drains for a decade or more. Biobarrier will not stop aggressive root systems like runner bamboo and Clusia.

Tips for improving Planter Drainage

Drain packs must be used in conjunction with a proper planting medium for container gardening, and inorganic filtering material to slow the drainage water so that any clay “fines” that could coat the geotextile will instead settle to the bottom of the liner below the side-wall drain.

  • When selecting your outdoor planters, keep in mind that drainage is critical to the health of your plants grown in containers, and it is very difficult to remedy after the fact. The design of the planter liner is one of the important components.
  • Generally, more tended plants die from drowning than from lack of water. “Old school” drain holes on the bottom and gravel drainage medium simply do not work and will quickly clog.  DeepStream elevates the drainage hole center approximately 2″ up the sides of your liners to provide a “reservoir” for the tap roots, but more importantly, that space allows clay “fines” present in all most all planting mediums to settle instead of clogging drain packs.
  • DeepStream pioneered modern drainage practices with side-wall drains and 3-layer drain filter packs. DeepStream places from one to three 3/4″ threaded drainage ports on its 16 stock proprietary plastic planter liners, to which various plugs, hose barbs and valves may be attached.  Liners are non-structural and are meant to be placed inside planter boxes.
  • Depending on your plants, planting mixture, and local climate, you may need to add more drains.  Additional drain holes can be added as required by drilling additional holes in the side walls with a hole saw bit. If additional threaded ports are needed we stock two-part watertight bulkhead fittings.
  • Planting mediums for container gardening are as varied as local climates and plant species.  Here in Florida, we can get 6” of rain in a day in the rainy season, so we need a quick draining material and we often add perlite. If you have a dry climate, you may need to add more vermiculite to retain water.  Since Florida also has a dry season where it my not rain for a month or more at a time, we use drip irrigation, as the planting medium we use for the rainy season dries out far too quickly during the dry season.  For more in-depth information on drip irrigation, drainage, and the many aspects of container gardening check the Helpful Resource Links to planterblog.com listed at the bottom of this page.

Food Safe Plastic Garden Planters

Food Safe Plastic Garden Planters are a stronger and more flexible alternative to fiberglass. DeepStream has two models that are perfect for both residential and commercial projects, like restaurants and urban streetscapes.

Custom Welded Food Safe Plastic Garden Planters

Modern tall and short, square and rectangular Food Safe Plastic Planters on Wheels are shown in a tropical Miami roof deck setting.
DeepStream’s modern Food Safe Plastic Garden Planters on Wheels have a recessed aluminum base making them hard to tell from stationary planters. Perfect for Restaurants with flexible seating plans, to move for cleaning, roll away at night, or move inside from a balcony.

Food Safe Plastic Garden Planters on Wheels rest on a recessed aluminum base that is custom-designed at any height to allow your planters to roll over door sills or obstacles while remaining unobtrusive.

HDPE, high density polyethylene, is a solid color throughout, so Food Safe Plastic Garden Planters won’t show scratches in the same way fiberglass or painted metal planters do, and graffiti can be easily cleaned off. HDPE plastic resists UV in sunlight and makes food safe planters safe, think kitchen cutting board, making them perfect to grow herbs and vegetables. HDPE is also waterproof, so planters don’t need a liner. Hammered Nickel and Shale are just two of the contemporary colors available.

Modern tall and short, square and rectangular Food Safe Plastic Planters are shown in Shale Grey and Hammered Nickel colors with and without optional food safe plastic planter liners in a tropical Miami roof deck setting.
DeepStream’s modern Food Safe Plastic Garden Planters, shown in Shale Grey and Hammered Nickel quick ship colors, are a study in rugged architectural minimalism that transcends time and fads, while standing up to urban environments, indoor or outside.

Are you looking for an attractive, lower cost commercial planter that will stand up to the hard knocks of life on the streets? Not only is HDPE a solid color throughout, so HDPE Planters do not show scratches in the same way fiberglass or painted metal planters do, but you can also use a random orbital sander to effortlessly create a unique new finish.

Two of the modern color HDPE Plastic sheets that we stock for quick delivery custom welded planters: Shale and Hammered Nickel. Shale has a “orange peel” finish, while the Hammered Nickel has a small scalloped finish. Many more colors and textures are available, call for color samples.

HDPE will not absorb paint or dirt, and as they are not painted, they may be pressure washed for sanitation. If a pressure cleaner won’t take graffiti off, it may be removed with paint remover or a light sanding, so they are perfect for rugged urban street life.

Whether for use at home, your restaurant, or commercial business, DeepStream’s customizable HDPE Food Safe Plastic Planters might be just what you are looking for. Environmentally friendly HDPE planters can be recycled again at the end of their long life.

Modern tall and short, square and rectangular Food Safe Plastic Planters are shown in Shale Grey and Hammered Nickel colors with one planter showing exactly how the optional food safe plastic stock planter liner fits inside.
Food Safe Plastic Planters come with a 3-year warranty against factory defects or structural failure. Equipped with DeepStream’s stock rotomolded planter liner inside, the warranty is extended to 5 years. If you’re landscaping with plants or trees that have an aggressive root system like runner bamboo or Clusia purchase, a 3/16” thick 5086 Aluminum Planter instead, as the root ball will expand to the point that it will separate any seam and even rip the strongest plastic, or fracture fiberglass.

Food Safe Plastic Planters may be direct-planted without using liners, or customized with liners with advanced drainage to extend the 3-year warranty to 5 years , while eliminating solar gain from heating the roots. As with all planters, for plants with aggressive roots like Bamboo or Clusia, we recommend using DeepStream’s rugged Planter Liners to aid in root management and replanting, or order our Aluminum Planters.

To reduce complexity and keep costs for tall planters to a minimum, your HDPE Planters can be built with inner cross-straps to support DeepStream’s landscape contractor-grade rotomolded plastic planter liners or a simple shelf for removable potted plants at any height to meet your landscaping requirements.

DeepStream’s tall planters, often used by restaurants, do not need to be filled with expensive, messy soil as a ballast material for stability. Fill with a foot or so of inexpensive water and simply pull the plug to drain them and when you need to.

When ordering shorter planters with optional liners to maximize the warranty period, improve drainage, and ease repotting, the planter liners may rest on foam block efficiently at minimal cost.

In rainy locations, our planters include a self-regulating, variable depth ballast system that lowers the center of gravity with a water overflow port. There is a drainage port at the bottom of the planter, eliminating messy weep holes. When the planters need to be moved, they can be easily and cleanly lightened by draining the water, unlike planters ballasted with soil or other material.

DeepStream is an American manufacturer with a single point of contact. You work directly with our principals who are as invested in your project’s success as you are. We have no salespeople or distributors.

Your success is our success, so we take steps to ensure your project goes perfectly, not as a “supplier,” but as a trusted member of your team. For 15 years we have been crafting landscaping systems for installations atop central financial district residential and office skyscrapers where it would be a huge inconvenience if everything did not go as planned, a part was missing, or a fastener got dropped irretrievably into a void.

To eliminate this possibility your project is completely pre-assembled, tagged, photographed, disassembled, and packaged with photo instructions, extra fasteners, and tools to ensure that everything goes together perfectly. Your team gets the instructions and receiving information before the shipment leaves our workshop so you know in advance exactly what resources you will need.

These Landscape Architect-specified, exceptionally large Long Wood Garden Planters are made possible by the hidden structural aluminum frame and waterproof food safe plastic planter liners that hide advanced drainage systems, labor saving drip irrigation, and wiring for lights.

Planters systems are often the last part of the project to be installed. Even if your as-built dimensions vary significantly from your blueprints, we have your back. The modular nature of our design and the flexibility of our craftsman-centric manufacturing process means that, with one phone call, we can have altered components shipped to you overnight so your valuable C.O. is not delayed.

  • Standard leg heights: 21”, 31”, and 42″, with custom lengths available.
  • Rugged, tapered liners rotomolded from UV-resistant, food-safe, 100% recycled LLDPE plastic, with threaded side-wall drain ports for advanced drainage options.
  • A facade that meets your design criteria: wood, recycled HDPE plastic lumber, or exotic materials like 3form, slate, or marble.
  • Hidden structural aluminum frame is engineered to add options like casters and screen wall using wood, glass, aluminum, or 3form Eco-resin, by design, not as an afterthought.
  • Damaged parts are replaceable at direct factory cost with unique “core replacement program.”
  • Lifetime Structural Warranty.

DeepStream Plastic Liners and 3-layer Drain Pads with TREMdrain & Biobarrier complete your Wood Planter

When selecting your outdoor planters, keep in mind that drainage is critical to the health of your plants grown in containers, and it is very difficult to remedy after the fact.

DeepStream pioneered modern drainage practices with side-wall drains and 3-layer drain filter pads. DeepStream places from one to three 3/4″ threaded drainage ports on its 16 proprietary stock plastic planter liners, to which various plugs, hose barbs, and valves may be attached.  Liners are non-structural and are meant to be placed inside planter boxes.

16 different size and shaped commercial planter liners are displayed on a tropical roof top deck landscaped with green palms trees, bamboo, and podocarpus. A large man is standing on top of one of the garden planter liners to show how strong they are.
DeepStream commercial planter liners with advanced drainage.

Generally, more container-grown plants die from drowning than from lack of water. “Old school” drain holes on the bottom and gravel drainage medium simply do not work and will quickly clog.  DeepStream elevates the drainage hole center approximately 2″ up the sides of your liners to provide a “reservoir” for the tap roots and allow clay “fines” in all planting mediums to settle instead of clogging drain packs.

Detailed photo on a tropical roof terrace showing how easy DeepStream's tapered stock planter liners with advanced drainage make it to replant and recondition roots.
DeepStream’s tapered stock planter liners with advanced drainage make them economical to ship and easy to replant and recondition roots.

Planter liners prevent the soil from contacting the wood, preventing rot, while promoting drainage. The air space the liner creates between itself and the planter box prevents the root-ball from getting warmer than the ambient air. This space also allows you to hide drip irrigation lines and wiring for lights. The tapered shape reduces shipping costs, and makes root conditioning and replanting slide-out-easy.

Depending on your plants, planting mixture, and local weather, you may need to add more drains.  Additional drain holes can be added as required by drilling additional holes in the side walls.

DeepStream’s advanced 3-Layer Drain Pad

Drain pads, when used in conjunction with clean 1-2 mm inorganic drainage material to slow the flow of the water to the drain, could prevent clogged drains for a decade or more. Biobarrier will not stop aggressive root systems like runner bamboo and Clusia.

Drain packs must be used in conjunction with a proper planting medium for container gardening, and inorganic filtering material to slow the drainage water so that any clay “fines” that could coat the geotextile will instead settle to the bottom of the liner below the side-wall drain.

  • When selecting your outdoor planters, keep in mind that drainage is critical to the health of your plants grown in containers, and it is very difficult to remedy after the fact. The design of the planter liner is one of the important components.
  • Generally, more tended plants die from drowning than from lack of water. “Old school” drain holes on the bottom and gravel drainage medium simply do not work and will quickly clog.  DeepStream elevates the drainage hole center approximately 2″ up the sides of your liners to provide a “reservoir” for the tap roots, but more importantly, that space allows clay “fines” present in all most all planting mediums to settle instead of clogging drain packs.
  • DeepStream pioneered modern drainage practices with side-wall drains and 3-layer drain filter packs. DeepStream places from one to three 3/4″ threaded drainage ports on its 16 stock proprietary plastic planter liners, to which various plugs, hose barbs and valves may be attached.  Liners are non-structural and are meant to be placed inside planter boxes.
  • Depending on your plants, planting mixture, and local climate, you may need to add more drains.  Additional drain holes can be added as required by drilling additional holes in the side walls with a hole saw bit. If additional threaded ports are needed we stock two-part watertight bulkhead fittings.
  • Planting mediums for container gardening are as varied as local climates and plant species.  Here in Florida, we can get 6” of rain in a day in the rainy season, so we need a quick draining material and we often add perlite. If you have a dry climate, you may need to add more vermiculite to retain water.  Since Florida also has a dry season where it my not rain for a month or more at a time, we use drip irrigation, as the planting medium we use for the rainy season dries out far too quickly during the dry season.  For more in-depth information on drip irrigation, drainage, and the many aspects of container gardening check the Helpful Resource Links to planterblog.com listed at the bottom of this page.
