DeepStream Designs modern long multi-section Audubon planter

No-maintenance Recycled Plastic Lumber Multi-section Audubon Planter in "Concrete"

Audubon Planter's proprietary leg design helps you expand your design pallet beyond wood.

The Audubon panel leg allows us to meet your creative needs quickly and cost-effectively through the use of any single half-inch panel or composite assembly for the side panels.


Our modular design allows for any part to be replaced in case of damage or design upgrade, so you don’t have to replace the whole planter.

Designs are limited only by your imagination and the environmental conditions of your site placement.


Value-engineering options include removing or minimizing costly panels where the back side will be hidden, and long modular planter runs created around standard planter liner lengths without multiple end panels.


Your panel material options are only limited by environmental conditions and can include:

  • Lightweight panels made of marble, granite, or any other available stone to match your design specs, laminated to aluminum honeycomb
  • Real slate veneer impregnated and laminated to fiberglass
  • Modern resin panels such as 3Form
  • Copper that can age gracefully, stainless steel or aluminum
  • Traditional hardwoods
  • Overlay panels that include photography or incorporate symbols and words for artistic statement or corporate identity.
  • Directional or informational signage

Audubon panel leg is stocked in 21" and 31” lengths, and up to 12 feet by special order.


Audubon legs are available in anodized bronze or marine anodized clear over silver aluminum or can be powder coated in any color.


DeepStream has a complete line of coordinating recycling receptacles to unify your design elements.

DeepStream Design plastic reservoir planter liner

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 Plastic Liners and 3-layer Drain Packs with TREMdrain & Biobarrier complete your planter

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.

DeepStream Designs builds all of our Audubon planters to order, and we can build almost any size from 18” – 72” long and 12” – 60” wide.  We stock two standard leg heights: 21” and 31”.  We also have a T-leg which we use to build multi-section planters when larger sizes are needed.  We have done projects which require taller legs, including 42” and 60”, but those are custom orders with a longer lead time.


We can build planters in a variety of materials, from solid tropical hardwoods (Jatoba, Lyptus, Ipe and Cumaru) to Recycled Plastic Lumber (RPL - five colors) to stone laminates, copper and resin panels.

Core Replacement Program:

DeepStream Designs will, in case of damage or an unacceptable degradation in finish, replace any metal component, plastic caps, plastic feet, lid retaining straps, bungee cord, and most other components of our products at manufacturer’s cost, plus shipping, for any planter box we make.  All components of our products are recyclable, so under this program, major components, such as aluminum legs and stainless steel lids must be returned to DeepStream for recycling.  Please call Sheila at 305-857-0466 to make arrangements for replacement parts.


The aluminum extrusions, stainless steel lids, and fasteners used in planters that DeepStream manufactures are guaranteed for the life of the structure against defects in manufacturing, materials and workmanship.  Our multi-section planter frames are guaranteed for life against structural defects.


The panels made from rigid materials or fabrics are the customer’s selection and retain the manufacturer’s warranty for those materials, which will vary by manufacturer. We will be happy to provide warranty information for products and components that we do not manufacture.


Aluminum extrusions and stainless steel fasteners have been used in the yachting industry for decades.  The etched marine anodized finish of the aluminum extrusions is a durable finish, created especially for coastal environments (Alumilite 215/A41 with surface preparation C22).  The 3/4" tropical hardwoods we select have been used in exterior applications such as docks, decks and boat construction for centuries. These woods have decades of life expectancy, although they can be affected by mold, mildew, dry rot and drying.


The primary failure for wooden planters is the joining of wood components to each other.  Wood has been used for centuries to split stone because of its tendency to expand when wet.  DeepStream has designed its products with heavy aluminum extrusions to join these components in such a way that allows the wood to expand and contract naturally to withstand the test of time.  We assemble these products using a proprietary bedding compound in the wood for screw holes to prevent rot, and proprietary dielectric paste for stainless steel fasteners to aluminum extrusions to avoid galvanic action that can cause them to seize over time.


Environmental conditions and maintenance, or lack thereof, will affect the life expectancy of the finish of our products, and as such, no warranty is given on the finish, but we do offer the Core Replacement Program to assist in keeping our planters, recyclers and structures looking fresh.
