Fascinating urban and institutional design at SF Planters:

We install planters so you don't have to look at homeless people.

We let customers anonymously request planter placements, help you conduct the involuntary sweeps through DPW, and then rapidly install our planter barricades overnight.

To prevent advocacy groups and city officials from blocking our work, there is no community feedback processes or transparency around locations chosen.
