This contractor in Sandy Hook, CT used EPS15 Geofoam to infill a planter in which they produced. Universal Foam Products supplied 3-3/4” thick EPS foam sheets to be cut on site with a hot knife to fit inside this irregular shaped planter. They added some 1” diameter holes at the bottom of the foam to help with drainage and prevent the foam from floating. The EPS Geofoam is very lightweight fill and is great for this application since it only weighs 1 pound per cubic foot. On the other hand, soil weighs approximately between 74 - 110 pounds per cubic foot. EPS Geofoam is a great substitute to soil and gravel for it is easy to transport and can always lighten the load when needed.
