Large Wood Garden Planters, a complete landscaping system custom-built by American craftsmen to any size, and backed by a Lifetime Structural Warranty.
Don’t confuse these planters for carpenter-built planters that will fall apart in 3-5 years. These are the Large Wood Garden Planters you are looking for. They will stand the test of time for decades, providing both you and the environment the lowest cost of ownership over time.
DeepStream’s trademark marine-anodized aluminum legs extruded from dies designed by our founder, and an aircraft aluminum frame engineered to ensure longevity allow the addition of options by design, not an afterthought, that no other planters can offer. We engrave our name on every proprietary extrusion, so if you don’t look good, then we don’t look good.
We engineered our planter system so that every part is replaceable, and partner with our customers by backing our planters with a Lifetime Structural Warranty and unique “Core Replacement Program” which provides replacement parts at direct manufacturer’s cost. We manufacture with computer-ensured accuracy of 1mm in 72″ and keep a digital archive of every piece so that, even years later, we can supply the exact part for your custom installation.
While we often supply a single planter to a homeowner for a balcony, many of our projects run into tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. We know that ordering a large installation of planter systems or screen walls can be stressful, as they are often ordered months before project completion, before as-built dimensions can be confirmed. Planters are often one of the last details to be installed before receiving your valuable C.O. Since DeepStream’s large garden planters are built by individual craftsmen, if there is any variation in measurements from plan, we have the flexibility to overnight replacement components to ensure you project is completed on schedule.
DeepStream offers more than garden planters and custom fixtures, we provide peace of mind and a guarantee of success to our customer. You are dealing directly with the principals of the company who have stood in your shoes with a background as developers, general contractors, project and property managers with thousands of installations and decades of experience on which to call. Working directly with us as part of your team eliminates distributor markups and confusion in the ordering process.
In addition to our proprietary marine-anodized aluminum legs and structural aluminum frame, DeepStream’s wood garden planters use a separate food-safe HDPE or LLDPE plastic planter liner with state-of-the-art drainage inside the outer box façade to ensure maximum durability, as the planting medium never touches the wood, preventing rot.
Cost-effective, lightweight square and rectangular stand-alone Large Wood Garden Planters are available up to 72″ long and to any height your project requires. Extra Large and Long Wood Planters use DeepStream’s proprietary L and T legs to build modular planters to any size or length.
DeepStream Designs handcrafts our Large Wood Garden Planters to order so we can build almost any stand-alone size from 18” – 72” long and 12” – 72” wide without custom or design fees. We stock three standard leg heights: 21”, 31” and 42″ and a maximum extrusion length of 144″.
With their integrated aircraft aluminum inner frame, these large wood garden planters, unlike carpenter-built wood and fiberglass planters, will not only last for decades, but they are also highly adaptable. Built to any size or rectilinear configuration, they may be disassembled and reconfigured by subtracting or adding parts we can supply from digital archives of your specific planters.
Handcrafted custom planters with wheels can roll, allowing for practical storage or flexible layouts. They can also be engineered to be moved with forklifts. They have been engineered to hold protective or privacy screen walls with no roof attachment, saving money and complexity.
Our proprietary aluminum extrusions are marine-anodized for direct salt air exposure. There is no paint, powder coating, welding, or fasteners holding wood to fail. While there are volume discounts based directly on savings in materials and setup time, one large wood garden planter or 100, there is never a design or custom fee.
DeepStream knows garden planters are an investment in the appearance of your property and ultimately the Earth. Using the principles of Sustainable Design, we handcraft our planters in America, and pay our craftsmen a good living wage by selling our Large Wood Garden Planters directly to you, eliminating needless distributor markup. We then back our planter systems with a Lifetime Structural Warranty, unlike the 1-3 year warranty of other companies.
This approach allows us to give back to the planet by planting 50 trees in our customers’ honor though Trees for the Future, which positively impacts both people and the planet through a four-year grassroots process that trains farmers to revitalize their land and become self-sustaining.
Modern Extra-Large, and long, Wood Garden Planters are modular and are pre-assembled to ensure an exact fit before breaking down alternate sections to reduce shipping costs. DeepStream custom planters, with their structural aluminum frames, can stand alone or achieve a built-in look. Easy to place and assemble, even on rooftops, they take about 10 – 15 minutes per section once in place.
Commercial Large Wood Garden Planters with gates anchor glass and wood screen wall enclosures to create an urban roof terrace garden seating area and dog park without roof penetrations.
Using our proprietary marine-anodized structural aluminum extrusions of varying lengths, we create prefabricated lightweight modular Wood Garden Planters to anchor wood, aluminum, or glass panels that do not require attachment to the roof, so there is no need for roof penetrations. DeepStream’s unique aluminum frame is backed by a Lifetime Structural Warranty and uses marine-anodized structural extrusions, so there is no paint or powder coating to fail. Buy factory-direct; there is never a design fee.

Landscape Architects create world-class roof terraces and sky plazas, and landscape large areas atop historic buildings, using DeepStream’s lightweight Extra Large Planters with structural aluminum frames, and modular planter liners with advanced drainage that hide drip irrigation and electrical wiring, backed by a Lifetime Structural Warranty.
DeepStream’s trademark marine-anodized structural aluminum corner extrusions and aircraft aluminum frame means there is no paint or powder coating to fail within five years. They stand up to harsh marine environments, as seen here, high above Boston’s harbor, with their timeless design bridging the architectural styles of the ultra modern and heritage buildings that form this spectacular 53 State Street 14th floor roof deck above the historic Exchange Building, overlooking the famous Customs House Clock Tower and the bay.
DeepStream’s unique 3-component system uses a proprietary hidden structural aluminum frame to create an independent façade with the planks, which hides the rugged waterproof liners inside. This design protects the root balls from overheating with solar gain, and hides an advanced drainage system, drip irrigation, and wiring for lights.
DeepStream is well-known by Architects and Landscape Architects as lightweight rooftop specialists. Our extr alarge landscaping planters and large commercial wood garden planters, of either tropical hardwood or recycled plastic lumber, are easy to install and even modify on site. They do not require fastening to the deck or through a roof membrane.
Your choice of materials.
DeepStream has two frame systems: the Audubon system can use any material, and the large garden planters you see on this page are built with the Mariner planter leg, which typically uses tropical hardwood or recycled plastic lumber planks.
All natural tropical hardwood planters will turn a light gray color and show stains and mold spots if not treated with a waterproofing and UV protector several times a year. This treatment will make all wood darker over time. Longer term, say 20 years or so, even Tropical Hardwoods will begin to succumb to mold in wet environments, degrading the outer finish if you don’t maintain them.
Given the time and expense necessary to keep natural hardwood looking good, and the damage done to the rainforests to harvest it, versus the “set and forget” ease of using environmentally friendly recycled plastic lumber, you should give serious thought to which you will select for your project.
If you do order natural hardwood with DeepStream’s trademark anodized aluminum extrusions, unlike carpenter-built planters, 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.
