A series of round and square arts and crafts inspired "hammered" copper texture Fiberglass Garden Planters with a metal-infused finish line a steep village path providing old world charm.
The Craftsman collection was inspired by a vase made by Oakland arts-and-crafts master Dirk van Erp. The “hammered” texture integral to these Fiberglass Garden Planters replicates the hand-hammered copper created in his workshop. The metal-infused finishes allow the original intent he had to come to life, albeit on a far larger scale than would have been possible then.

Commercial Fiberglass Garden Planters are created with a polyester-based fiberglass (also known as Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic, or FRP), hand-laid in open molds or sprayed from a gun as chopped glass of varying thicknesses. Fiberglass is a lightweight, strong material made up of layers of polyester resin-infused fiberglass strands.  Thin inexpensive fiberglass planters are easily cracked and broken so, as always, quality is more expensive up front, but much less expensive in the long run.

The strength and durability of fiberglass depend upon the number of layers of strands and the type of resin used. The color is only in the outer layer, so chips can occur. Fiberglass itself is not waterproof, so the outer colored layer is a waterproof gelcoat and the inside of the planters are painted with a waterproofing material.

Tournesol Fiberglass Planters have a 3-year limited warranty and are not covered by DeepStream’s Lifetime Structural Warranty or Core Replacement Program.

HDPE Food Safe Plastic Planters are an alternative with several advantages over fiberglass planters:

  • They won’t crack.
  • They are less expensive.
  • Have a faster delivery time.
  • They are built to custom sizes for no extra cost.
  • HDPE is a solid color throughout and will never absorb water.
  • Graffiti is easily removed and they are easily refinished.
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 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 indoors or outside. They are also available as practical planters with wheels.

These high quality commercial planters will change your perception of “plastic planters”. Unlike fiberglass planters, HDPE Planters have a solid color throughout, so they don’t show scratches like fiberglass or painted aluminum and can never absorb water. HDPE is more flexible so it does not crack like fiberglass under stress.

Like fiberglass, it is not the best material for plants with aggressive root systems. Although it won’t crack like fiberglass, it can bulge if not braced in the appropriate spots.  Experienced craftsmanship and design can make all the difference. They have a 3-year warranty like fiberglass, which is extended to 5 years if used with DeepStream’s stock planter liner.

HDPE can be pressure cleaned, will not stain or hold paint, so it’s good in urban locations where it might be subject to graffiti. They can easily be refinished in place with a sanding block or random orbital sander like natural aluminum.

Choose marine alloy aluminum planters made from thick, rigid 5086 aluminum plate if you’re going to plant Clusia or other plants with aggressive root systems. 

Commercial Aluminum Planters made with 5086 marine-grade aluminum are more expensive than fiberglass planters but, as they are the strongest and most rigid of the lightweight materials available, they are an excellent choice for landscaping with trees and aggressive root systems like Clusia and species of runner bamboo.

Custom modern large, 24" long X 24" wide X 24" high, cube aluminum planters crafted from 5086 marine alloy with a flawless natural finish shown on a tropical roof terrace.
Do the job right and you do it once! These cube aluminum planters, 24″ long X 24″ wide X 24″ high, crafted from commercial grade 3/16″ thick 5086 marine alloy will withstand the aggressive root system of this Clusia, while its natural finish will withstand the salty coastal environment for decades to come. DeepStream’s recycled plastic lumber Mariner planter shown to the left of the cube is a perfect companion planter.
Rectangular dark bronze painted aluminum planters landscaped with bushes are arranged to create a sidewalk cafe under large umbrellas on a city plaza next to a historic building made with massive blocks of granite.
Painted or powder coated aluminum planters made with thinner aluminum formed for strength, landscaped with bushes or flowers, are a popular cost-effective way to control access and create a sidewalk or plaza cafe. While Aluminum can be powder coated or painted any color, the warranty on the finish is limited to one or two years at best. They may be sanded and spot-painted in place, or removed and stripped by a variety of methods and refinished.

Pressure washable, unfinished marine alloy aluminum planters have a clean timeless contemporary look that will last for decades. No need for expensive stripping and refinishing ever. Like HDPE Food Safe Plastic Planters, Aluminum Planters are great to use where it might be subject to graffiti, as you can use chemical paint strippers and a random orbital sander to quickly and easily refinish them in place if a pressure washer doesn’t quite do the job.

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.
