Mariner Commercial Wood Garden Planters are a complete 3-component system which comprises a separate planter box and trademark marine-anodized aluminum legs integrating a hidden structural aluminum frame engineered to support a waterproof liner with advanced drainage. No paint or powder coating to fail.

For almost two decades Landscape Architects and homeowners have relied on DeepStream’s trademark marine-anodized aluminum leg, hidden structural aluminum frame, and separate planter liner to ensure the durability of the Mariner Wood Garden Planter for generations to come. This on page link will take you to examples of budget pricing for a sample of individual planter sizes that use DeepStreams stock plastic liners, multi-section planters are less expensive per linear foot if you need long planters.

Mariner Commercial Wood Garden Planters have a modern minimalist design that transcends time.

Two large Long Wood Garden Planters separate a seating area, with blue couches, from a dining area on this urban roof terrace with a dramatic backdrop of skyrise buildings along the Chicago River.
The modular design of the lightweight structural aluminum frame creates Long Wood Garden Planters complete with food safe waterproof planter liners with advanced drainage. These very large, long, planters were able to be installed without the need of a crane or special equipment on the roof terrace of this historic urban Chicago building. Assembly time was only 15 – 20 minutes per planter with no mess to clean up afterwards.

DeepStream Commercial Mariner Wood Garden Planters are a complete 3-component engineered planter system designed to meet the demanding requirements of our customers: Architects, Landscape Architects, restaurants, hotels, healthcare facilities , governments, transportation hubs, airports, and urban dwellers.

Don’t confuse our Modern Commercial Mariner Wood Planter system with carpenter-built boxes that will fall apart in 3-5 years:

  • 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. Using different height legs, we create an integral frame that supports accessories like screen wall, trellis, gates, and casters by design, not as an afterthought.
  • A separate wood 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.

DeepStream’s trademark extruded marine-anodized aluminum legs and hidden frame used to create wood garden planters with a seperate planter liner are engineered to support many options by design, not as an afterthought, including trellis, hidden casters, and integrated screen walls for privacy, security, and sound attenuation.

The high-volume rectangular and square-shaped Mariner wood garden planters are a cost-effective, durable, modern addition to the design palette of landscaping professionals and urban gardeners alike. Lightweight, they are well-suited for balcony and green roof installations, as well as pool decks, lobbies, restaurants and walkways.

We started by building planters for our own projects. So if you’re an owner or developer and interested in why we design and build planters like we do, click this link to read a blog with a detailed comparative analysis about materials, form, design, and construction techniques.

A 72" long rectangular Modern commercial Mariner Wood Planter landscaped with tall flowering Birds of Paradise creates a dramatic screen wall.
Modern Mariner Wood Garden Planter Boxes have a hidden structural aluminum frame supporting a separate waterproof liner with advanced drainage. This creates an air gap between the wood planter box and the liner, preventing solar gain from overheating the root ball. This gap not only ensures the best growing condition for landscaping, like these Birds of Paradise, but it also allows for a hidden drip irrigation option.

Sustainably Designed, Deceptively Simple, Highly Efficient:

  • Modular garden planter design allows any part to be replaced in case of damage at any time, so you don’t have to replace the whole planter to maintain your visual standards.
  • Value-engineering options include removing or minimizing costly hidden panels that will not be visible, and long modular planter runs created around standard planter liner lengths without the expense of duplicate end panels.
  • Built from 3/4″ environmentally friendly no-maintenance recycled plastic lumber or tropical hardwood planking. Natural wood options include: Ipe, Jatoba (Brazilian Cherry), Cumaru (Brazilian Teak).
  • Wood is finished with wipe-on-easy Ipe Oil.
  • DeepStream’s proprietary extruded legs of 6063-T5 aluminum are finished with a durable etched marine-anodized finish. There is no paint or powder coating to fail.
  • Replaceable feet are non-marring HDPE plastic which galvanically isolates the aluminum legs and frame. Lockable security clip option.
  • Stainless steel fasteners are installed with a proprietary dielectric marine paste to prevent corrosion and allow component replacement decades later.
  • Aluminum suspension bars support a plastic liner or pot shelf.
  • Stand-alone Mariner Wood Garden Planters ship fully assembled, but can be disassembled for flat storage in 15 minutes. Modular Long Wood Garden Planters are typically shipped with every other section disassembled to reduce shipping cost. Joining sections with planks and angle is slip-in easy, about 12 – 15 minutes per section.
  • Custom sizes available, there is never a design fee, and we offer volume discounts.

Mariner Wood Garden Planter Dimensions and Pricing

There is virtually limit on the size of Planter we can. DeepStream Designs builds all Planters to order, and we can build almost any size stand alone planter from 18” – 72” long and 12” – 72” wide. We stock three standard leg heights: 21”, 31” and 42″.

As you have seen in the examples above, DeepStream also has a proprietary marine-anodized structural T-leg which we use to build modular Long Wood Garden Planters to any length, width, or height when extra-large, long or tall Planters are needed.  We stock taller extrusions to hold planter-anchored screen wall, from 48″ – 84″. 

We can build wood planters in a variety of materials, from solid tropical hardwoods (Jatoba, Ipe, and Cumaru) to Recycled Plastic Lumber (RPL – five solid colors with embossed woodgrain and four new premium variegated Woodgrain colors). We can use appropriate wood from the project your working on to match or even use leftover tropical hardwood flooring. Our structural aluminum frame system can use materials such as marble, slate and copper.

Tropical Hardwood and Recycled Plastic Lumber (RPL) each have their uses. Specifying no-maintenance Recycled Plastic Lumber makes it easy and cost-effective to go Green.

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.

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.

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.

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.
