      Awesome product. We live in the Midwest and these have never blown off the deck. Great height for viewing the flowers from inside. Drains well. Doesn't damage the deck. I can't say enough about the complements we receive about these. Easy to store for the winter also.

          They sit solidly on the porch railing and don't harm the railing like the metal holders I had for hanging pots. I will just fill the planters and eliminate the hanging baskets this year.

          I like this planter, but I also bought the bigger self-watering planter. It is worth the extra few dollars to get the sturdier, heavier self-watering planter. This one is not bad at all, just not as fabulous as the self-watering one.

            I originally bought two and filled with dirt and seeds. Well, it looked so beautiful on the porch rails, I ordered another one to make the porch complete. My husband came in the driveway after installing and said from the road they really made a difference on how the house looks.

            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.

                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.
