Additional Information

Exclusive | Self-Watering Railing Planter Installs in Seconds

  • Convenient self-watering railing planter is simple to install
  • Straddles two sizes of rails — no brackets needed
  • Just fill the reservoir and plants get the water they need, when they need it
  • We recommend one 20-quart bag of our premium Organic Self-Watering Potting Mix; each of these planters holds 20 quarts

Now it’s easier than ever to have lush, colorful plants along a deck railing. This cleverly designed planter securely straddles rails made from both 4" and 6" milled lumber (actual width 3-1/2" and 5-1/2") — no mounting hardware needed. Best of all, it’s self-watering; simply fill the reservoir and plants receive water as they need it.

    Comments about : Self-Watering Railing Planter:

    I originally bought three and then purchased four more to put around my deck. I planted marigolds to repel mosquitoes away and so far so good. The only downside is that you have to poke your own drainage holes. The pots should come with plugs one could easily remove. Also, there is no indication as to where the drainage holes should be.

      Comments about : Self-Watering Railing Planter:

      I purchased these after doing a ton of searching for a saddle planter that would fit over the wide railings of a gazebo. I was pleasantly surprised to find they fit PERFECTLY- even a little on the snug side. Really dressed up the plain old gazebo.

            I have not added soil or plants yet due to slow sprint weather so I cannot comment on the plants and put plants in the drainage and durability yet but the design and quality are impressive.

                  I got 2 the first year to see if I would like them and to see how they would work. They were wonderful! I got big beautiful plants on my porch railing just like I have always wanted. I especially loved the fact that I didn't have to water them everyday. I could go away for the weekend and not worry that my plants were going to be wilted when I got home.
