Sustainable Design: Planters
DeepStream can supply your Glass-fiber-Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) Planters in a cost-effective manner drawing from Tournesol's 13 distinct GFRC Concrete Planter design collections. With thousands of installations, DeepStream understands both commercial and homeowner needs. For one planter or 100+, knowledgeable service and volume pricing made us Tournesol Siteworks' high-volume national distributor for GFRC Planters.
From Manhattan to Hawaii, you have seen these high quality GFRC Concrete Planters everywhere.
Concrete Garden Planters from Tournesol Siteworks are created with glass-fiber-reinforced concrete which has the look and durability of concrete, without suffering the associated weight. Unlike many concrete planters, there is no steel rebar inside to rust, swell, and split the planters open in an action called "spalling".
By adding long-strand glass fibers and woven mat to the conventional concrete, Tournesol increases the strength of the material and decreases the thickness. Decreasing the thickness 60% (from typically 3” in cast concrete to 1” in GFRC) directly reduces the weight by the same amount. However these planters are still at least 10X heavier than fiberglass planters and are best used at street level. They are often used to block vehicles from parking or entering restricted locations.

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.
