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.
