What are Downspout Planters?
August 19, 2022
Downspout planters are decorative planters specially designed to absorb and filter stormwater before it enters stormwater management or sewer. They are typically installed along or at the end of the downspout to capture the water. They remove pollutants through filtration by plants while adding aesthetic appeal and providing habitat to wildlife. The best part of the downspout planter is that they do not require a lot of space, which is perfect for urban areas, where space is limited. TerraCast® Planters are ideal for filtering stormwater because they are not affected by water, whereas some material requires a waterproof liner inside the container to avoid rust, corrosion, or rot.
