Beautiful Fence Planter

By Moofie

Pros

  • Color
  • Construction
  • Perfect size

Cons

  • none

Best Uses

    Fihen I ordered two; then two more. The bright red color is beautiful and you can add flowers that just "pop." I just love these planters. I can see them from my kitchen window. True decoration for your fence.

          I just reviewed this, and clicked on the wrong star. I meant to give it a 5 star (high rating) not a 1.

          Unsatisfactory product

            Cons

              Best Uses

                I purchased 10 of the Balcony Railing Planters for a house gift to a friend. When he moved into his place he found the planters did not fit over the railing. The planter opening is 2-1/2 inches. The railing is 3 inches, which is standard construction for this area. Your catalog does not give the open dimension for fitting over the railing. Do you have any suggestions to remedy this situation other than returning the planters for credit.

                It actually fits on my ironwork and does not droop like all the others I tried.

                      Cons

                        Best Uses

                        • Deck railings
                        • Outside Railings

                        I bought these because I was looking for flower boxes I could install on my deck railings myself without having to bother my husband to drill and holes. I bought four. They arrived quickly. The only assembly required is to put a drainage tray in the bottom and a tub to read the water level. Then I removed the drainage plug since they will get plenty of rain. This lets the excess water over about an inch flow out. I planted them up and they are working great.

                        My only comment on the specs on the website is that I said they were 8 inches deep but that includes the hanging bracket. The box you can plant in is only 4.5 inches deep. They are a bit narrower than I expected so I can only plant one flower across.
                        I love them and they are worth the money so far!!

                          • Wrought Iron Railings

                          I ordered one in black to try for the wrought iron railing for our front balcony. It arrived well packaged and much better quality than I expected. It has a deep lip for holding securely on the narrow wrought iron. Even my husband was impressed with both the design and the quality. We liked it so much I ordered a second one!

                                Everything about it is true. Works so wells off of my porch railing. Easy to see if it needs watering. Good choice.

                                      This is probably the only planter that would work on our old railings and our daisies love it.
