Planters on Wheels transform this beachfront Hawaiian resort pool deck from lounging and massages to a wedding event space or a restaurant in minutes.
Garden Planters with wheels are a practical way to transform a resort pool deck from an area for lounging and massages to a wedding event space or a restaurant in minutes. These commercial-grade tall rectangular planters with wheels are engineered with a structural aluminum frame to mount the hidden caster wheels and hold a separate planter liner by design, not an afterthought. The large wood planter box with wheels is handcrafted in America with environmentally friendly, UV-stabilized, no-maintenance 100% recycled HDPE food-safe plastic lumber that can be pressure cleaned for sanitation, as the marine-anodized aluminum legs mean there is no paint or powder coating to fail. Backed by a Lifetime Structural Warranty.

Whether it’s a home, a condo with a balcony, or a business on a busy street, planters with wheels can be rolled inside after watering and soaking up the sun for indoor use, secured for the night, or for an impending windstorm.

DeepStream makes it easy to add caster wheels to wood, plastic, aluminum, and fiberglass planters. DeepStream Designs’ Mariner wood garden planters on wheels have the casters mounted to a unique recessed structural aluminum frame, making them virtually invisible and “bomb-proof.” Restaurants use them to create movable walls to direct traffic, limit access, or mount screen walls for privacy and lights.

We eschew the throwaway society approach: any part of a Deepstream solution is replaceable.

Casters for other planters with wheels are mounted to clear polycarbonate sheet or reinforced aluminum sheet cut to fit under your planters.

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.
