Great Product!

Pros

    Cons

      Best Uses

        It's hard to find a planter that fits over a metal railing. Most are designed to fit wooden railings, which are much wider. This one fits like a charm. It has a beautiful, contemporary look. And the self-watering feature cuts down on the watering. After buying one, I liked it so much that I ordered 6 more!

                    Best Uses

                      These railing boxes are shiny - I got 2 black - and the plants are doing well in the recommended soil. Very sturdy and solid. There is a water meter on them, but so far I've not had anything register on them, even after a big rain.

                      Best Uses

                        Water monitors may be incorrect. When I filled the planters until the monitor registered my plants were drowning.

                          I live in California where we are now experiencing a historic drought. I still like color. I'm still able to do so with my red railing self-watering containers with geraniums (pelagoniums) which are already fairly drought resistant. Works for me!

                            I wanted an over the fence planter that was fool proof and this fit the bill. The bright red is very eye catching and I love self watering feature as I tend to have a black thumb. Can't wait for the weather to get warm so I can use them.
