Box planters (factsheet, Soil Cells Quarters Case Study) are similar to rain gardens as they use vegetation and amended soils to filter and retain stormwater.

A planter typically consists of a concrete box, which may or may not have a lined or concrete bottom (depending if infiltration is desirable), filled with a soil medium and planted with trees, shrubs, or flowering species.

In some facilities, structural cells can be used to add support to the ground while allowing more room for roots to grow.
