Comments about : 30" 2 x 4 Railing Planter:

These look great on my deck and they fit snugly on the railing. My only complaint is that the elements eventually cause them to become brittle and crack. They only last two or three seasons and I do store them inside in the winter.

    Did not accurately fit my deck rails causing it to blow off in high winds. I used extra heavy duty Velcro strips on railing & base of planter that solved the problem.

      Comments about : 30" 2 x 4 Railing Planter:

      I have looked for the right planter for a long time, and when I saw this one on Gardener's supply, I immediately ordered it. We have wide wooden railing on our balcony and I did not want to ruin the wood with screws. So this was a perfect solution for me. The planter sits very sturdy on a railing, and it looks great

      If you're trying to enhance a high wall make sure the plants you select will drape over the wall. However, the plants we selected take a long time cover even a small portion of the wall.

          This planter is perfect for deck railings. There are no bolts or attachments needed -- it just places securely on top of the deck railing. And, they are deep and wide enough to hold medium-sized plants.

          Best way to get Gardening Therapy!

          Comments about : 30" 2 x 4 Railing Planter:

          My parents always taught me that working the soil with your hands is good for the soul. The planters are a perfect fit on the railings and blend in well with the railing color, slightly above waist height so no bending or kneeling, are sturdy when it's windy, and the drainage holes are brilliant to keep plants for holding too much water. Apartment dweller I may be, but these planters give me a chance to work with my hands and refresh my soul while enjoying the outdoors.

              I purchased these for a neighbor who is elderly and set them up on her porch rails. She is so happy tending her flowers without bending over. A big plus is everyone who knows her waves and yells hello as they drive by!

              I saw this planter at someone's home and like the fact that it slides over the railing.

                This is the second pair I've purchased. The last pair lasted well over ten years. They were hard to find in 'white' but thankfully found them on Gardeners. Their holding capacity is amazing!

                  Ordered eight of these last year when they were on sale, and four more this year - all terra cotta. Look beautiful around my deck railing. Much better quality than some I've seen. Drilled extra holes b/c of comments I saw from other reviewers. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
