Read on to get an overview and description of DeepStream’s wide range of garden planter offerings, or follow the headings below to go directly to that planter page which will open in a new window.
Engineered and hand crafted in America with a Lifetime Structural Warranty. Don’t confuse DeepStream Custom Wood Garden Planters for carpenter built planters that will fall apart in 3-5 years, or fiberglass planters with a 3 year warranty.
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.
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.
More flexible than fiberglass HDPE Food Safe Planters will not crack like fiberglass, engineering and construction techniques in the welding process or the hidden structural aluminum frame makes them much more durable.
Mariner Food Safe Recycled Plastic Lumber Planters, below, are crafted with DeepStream’s Mariner structural aluminum frame and have a Lifetime Structural Warranty. Mariner planters hare all the same design attributes as DeepStream’s entire line of Wood Planters except, unlike natural tropical hardwood, they require no maintenance and do not require wood harvested from the rapidly diminishing Tropical Rain Forests of the world.
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.
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.
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.
