Attractive but not durable and there are issues too

By Anjalika

from Gaithersburg, MD

Pros

  • Attractive Design

Cons

  • Can Blow In The Wind
  • Deteriorates/Rots
  • Difficult To Assemble
  • Flimsy
  • Grows Mold/Mildew
  • Not Adjustable To Fit

Best Uses

  • Add A Second Over It
  • Outdoor Plants
  • Secure One With Wire

Comments about 30" 2 x 4 Railing Planter:

I have purchased approximately 6 of these. The first time, fitting it to the deck railing was difficult as it didn't fit snug. To protect from being blown in the wind, holes were made and secured with wire. Sealed the holes but over time soil and water leaked.

The plastic material gets brittle and cracked for the sun. I bought a double set and put one secured to the rail and the other with no holes made into the bottom.

The design should be altered to secure it in a way that it does not get dislodges in strong wind.

Although very attractive to look at, the practical problems are the short lasting material, expensive, mildew spoils the white, and securing safely is not thought through in the design. the lips are too far apart to fit snug on deck railing. A good idea but poorly designed and too expensive to replace after one season when the sun eats the material and it cracks like an eggshell. Disappointed that such an attractive item is badly made.

            Perfect addition to the deck. Needed to soften up the hardscape of the deck and patio, potted plants just weren't enough. The railing planters were perfect, add color, interest and softness at a higher level. The different lengths of planters makes spacing so easy.
