RE: Planter Loading

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
        Glen,
                I have always used the load given by the architect, which is usually pretty high. It is always in excess of saturated soil, and snow goes on top of that.
                Planters that still have bamboo in them that will eventually be removed and a two-story tall elevated, enclosed walkway built on the same structure weighed more than the future structure.
