The best way to reduce waste and recycle is not to purchase items that will be thrown away quickly. DeepStream was founded as the result of our search for sustainably designed planters that would stand the test of time.
These wood privacy screen walls use separated wood planks held securely within DeepStream’s trademark marine-anodized structural leg extrusions. Space between the planks blocks the view, allows for cooling air flow, and reduces the force of high winds on the planter.
DeepStream’s large modular wood planters do more than hold the wood privacy screen. The wood planter boxes equipped with waterproof plastic liners provide the perfect condition for landscaping with bushes, flowers, or even trees.
Each modular planter section’s aluminum frame supports a rugged waterproof plastic liner to contain the planting medium. DeepStream’s proprietary liners have a tapered shaped for easy replanting. They are designed with an advanced drainage system that can be directed if necessary using common threaded fittings.
The liner within a wood planter box design leaves space to hide drip irrigation systems and directed drainage if required. The resulting airspace between the wood planter box and the plastic liner prevents solar gain from overheating the root ball.
Solar gain is a real problem on terraces, balconies, and roof decks with south- and west-facing exposures. The result of this design is that the roots remain at ambient air temperature.
Solar gain will heat any single-wall planter or pot to over 145 degrees on an 85-degree day. As a result, the root ball on the sunny side overheats, stressing the plants no matter how much water they receive.
DeepStream wood planters will also hold screen walls of any material. Glass screen wall is popular to limit access on a roof deck as a parapet wall without blocking the view. Glass also makes a good security screen wall to limit access to a pool area, while allowing visibility for safety.
