LEED Planter & Recycler Spec Sheets

LEED Planter, Recycled Plastic Wood, Standard 36 in Tropical Hardwood

As with all planters, the plants themselves help cool the earth and clean the air by producing more oxygen and trapping carbon.  In addition, our LEED Planters lower the impact of man on the environment because:


     - Using recycled plastic “lumber” planks eliminates the cutting of trees and uses less energy to manufacture.

     - The plastic lumber we use is made from recycled post-consumer HDPE (high-density polyethylene) from milk jugs and other polyethylene packaging that would normally be destined for landfills. 

     - The liners are made from recycled pre-consumer LDPE (low-density polyethylene)

     - Aluminum legs and straps, along with plastic components are 100% recyclable.

  • Maintenance-Free! 

    - Uses no energy or materials to maintain

    - Plastic lumber never needs to be painted or stained and will never rot, splinter or split

    - Proprietary extruded legs of 6063-T5 aluminum are finished with a durable etched marine anodized finish and non-scuff feet.

    - Stainless steel fasteners are installed with dialectric paste to prevent corrosion.

  • Colors won't fade - Ultra-violet stabilizers are added to the lumber so colors will look as vibrant decades from now as they do today.

  • Cost Effective

    - Working with recycled plastic lumber not only reduces production costs, but it also requires NO maintenance, reducing your cost of ownership over time compared to wood planters. 
    - While the material we use is only a few cents a square foot less than natural hardwood lumber, several aspects of the LEED Planter help us reduce the manufacturing cost without cutting quality, and pass the savings on to our customers:

    • Planter boxes and liners are stocked in specific sizes to eliminate waste
    • Planing, sanding and hand-rubbed finish are eliminated
  • Optional drain attachments with overflow control allow any liner to be used in interior and exterior installations.

  • Planters ship fully assembled, or can be disassembled for shipping or flat storage in 15 minutes.

  • Custom sizes and other colors available.

  • There may be slight variation in color between production runs.  We will always use planks from the same production run within a single planter.

NOTE: Recycled Plastic Lumber (RPL) will expand and contract with changes in temperature, unlike its aluminum frame.
   To prevent bowing when the RPL is heated by the sun, planters over 44" long will be “tuned” at the factory by leaving horizontal fasteners slightly loose before placing the planters in full sun for two hours to allow the sun to thoroughly heat both sides of your planter before the fasteners are tightened down.
   Average daytime temperatures in Miami, where your planter will be manufactured, vary from the 50s in the winter to the 90s in the summer, so the temperature of the RPL in full sun can vary from 80° to 130°.  Should the maximum temperature in your area be significantly hotter than Miami when your planter was assembled, some bowing could still occur.
   Should it be necessary to tune your planter, loosen the four liner support frame fasteners with a #3 Phillips screwdriver, and allow the RPL to heat up by rotating the planter’s long faces towards the sun for an hour each during the hottest, sunniest part of the day, before tightening them back down.  If your planter was designed with horizontal 1” angles to prevent liner bowing, you also need to loosen and retighten those four fasteners at the same time.
