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.
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.
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.
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.
For every product DeepStream’s American craftsmen create for our clients using wood or recycled plastic lumber, we plant between 50 and 100 trees in your honor through Trees For The Future. Their Forest Garden program has many positive benefits for the earth and its people, in addition to planting trees. For more information follow this link: Trees.org
Multi-section. modular, Commercial Planters use DeepStream’s proprietary trademark anodized L and T legs for unlimited planter length in custom heights and widths, with no paint or powder coating to fail. As with all of DeepStream’s wood planters, all parts are replaceable and backed by a Lifetime Structural Warranty.
Liner-inside-a-planter-box design eliminates root ball solar gain, hides irrigation lines, waterproof liner, and drainage.
Trademark T and L legs extruded from marine-anodized aluminum mean there is no paint or powder coating to fail.
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 plastic lumber, or exotic materials like 3form 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 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.
DeepStream’s planters are an investment in the appearance of your property and sustainable design. We sell our wood planters directly to customers, eliminating the distributor markup and ordering confusion. This allows us to use the best materials and American craftsmanship which, combined with our engineered structural aluminum legs, frame, and plastic liner-inside-a-planter-box design, means that our planters won’t pull apart or rot, lasting for generations.
Built by a single craftsman with pride of ownership these comercial wood planter boxes and separate planter liners will provide the lowest cost of ownership over time, while lowering the impact on the earth’s resources. Every planter sold by DeepStream also generates 50 trees planted in return by the non-profit Trees For the Future.
DeepStream’s Commercial Wood Planters have a frame engineered to anchor integral screen walls and Trellises, eliminating problematic fastening through roof membranes. They usually qualify for “temporary structure” status, eliminating most permitting required by building and city codes when used on roof terraces, balconies, or sidewalks.
Planter Dimensions and Budget Pricing for stock liner sizes
To gain an insight into pricing, the table below shows budget pricing* for fifteen stock sizes of stand-alone planters (price includes liner and drain filter pack). We offer a 5% discount for 5-9 units, 10% discount for 10+ units.
Planters made with Recycled Plastic Lumber (RPL) are typically less expensive and require almost no maintenance. Premium Woodgrain adds about 3% to the RPL price.
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.
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.
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.
Custom Planter Liners
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.

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.

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.
