Sustainable Design: Planters
Modern Garden Planters based on design, construction, and materials, DeepStream is able to help you complete your project with all three.
DeepStream is an American custom manufacturer selling direct to you. Our craftsmen can help you turn your ideas for Modern Planters into reality efficiently and on a compressed time line. Cost-effective, lightweight square and rectangular stand-alone modern planter sections up to 72", and lightweight multi-section modern planters of unlimited length. DeepStream can provide your modern garden planters in wood, metal, stone, or just about any material your project specifies.
Modern planters manufactured by DeepStream incorporate a separate plastic liner, with state-of-the-art drainage, inside an outer planter box facade to ensure maximum durability, as the planting medium never touches the outer shell. Speakers, drains and drip irrigation lines are easily concealed.
DeepStream is also a large volume Distributor of pots and modern planters in many shapes constructed of fiberglass, plastic, and GFRC concrete manufactured by Tournesol Siteworks.
While enjoying your outdoor wood 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. 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 pioneered modern drainage practices with side-wall drains and 3-layer drain packs. DeepStream places from one to three 3/4" threaded drainage ports on its 12 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 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 installed drains are centered about 2" above the bottom to allow the clay "fines" in planting mediums that are responsible for clogging to settle to the bottom.
Standard ABS liners and custom-welded liners come without drain holes, but they may be drilled as required. Reservoir liners come with one drain port, and more cannot be added.
DeepStream's liner-inside-a-planter-box design, and proprietary trademark marine-anodized aluminum legs, ensure the lowest cost of ownership over time. Our planters are backed by a Lifetime Structural Warranty.
The liners prevent the soil from contacting the wood, and the air space between insulates the root-ball so it doesn't get warmer than the ambient air.
If your planters will not be dug up and replanted every year then we strongly recommend adding Drain Filter Packs for each drain.
A three-part filter combines the waffled plastic backing of TREMdrain, three layers of filter fabric, and Biobarrier buttons to inhibit root growth.
They may not stop aggressive root systems like Bamboo and Clusia.
Filter packs, 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.
