What is a downspout planter?
A downspout planter work well in dense suburban areas to collect, absorb, and filter stormwater before it enters our stormsewer system. These planters work well where a gutter discharges to a driveway, patio, or areas with limited space. The planters create a beautiful raised garden and with the addition of native plants increase local habitat for pollinators.
