For this project we manufactured custom length modular corten steel planters to fit specific perimeter dimensions of the roof deck. Our innovative planter design assembles with stainless steel screws that are completely concealed from view for a modern uncluttered look. Further, not having screws on the side of the planter allows for placing planters in a row without gaps. In this project the planters are 36 inches high by 24 inches wide and approximately 44 inches long. The planters sit directly on the wood decking. Also the planters are raised of the decking by one inch to allow for irrigation tubing to be routed under the metal planter box. Further, tall planters placed around the perimeter of the roof deck eliminate the need for costly construction of safety railing.
