    Deck rail planters are wonderful

    By Phil

    from Shawnee, Oklahoma

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

      Cons

        Best Uses

          The deck gets a lot of our attention as well as a lot of daytime sunshine. We purchased two planters to begin with and now have six of them. I wish the water reservoir was a little bigger to fit with our long camping trips.

          • Very easy to use

          Cons

            Best Uses

              I love these! I bought nine to use all around our porch and balcony. They fit right over the rail. They retain a lot of water - I only have to water them once a week or so. They make the house look great!

              Pros

              • Nicely Designed Planters
              • Plants do well

              Cons

              • Tubes Needed For Wells

              Best Uses

              • Flowers

              I used the planters to add flowers to a large railed deck. The planters are nice looking and hold an assortment of plants. Planters are easy to handle even loaded with soil and plants.
              Planters do need tubes from the base to the top to add water to the self watering wells. One should notice this immediately, especially when putting soil into the containers. Do not forget to drill those drainage holes.

                Make sure to have the number of plants balanced throughout or it might flip over, espcially if you put more plants in the front than in the back.

                Pros

                • Fits the deck railing
                • Looks good

                Cons

                • Takes A Lot Of Dirt

                Best Uses

                  Nice planter box that fits over the deck railing very well. So far, between the rain and water reseviour, the self watering idea is working. Lots of compliments from the neighbors.

                  • Very Goodlooking
                  • Worth the money

                  Cons

                  • Can't see water level

                  Best Uses

                    I do love this and guests zero in on it immediately.
                    Watering until the drilled weep hole spills out water isn't hard, but you have no knowledge of how much is in the water wells, say two weeks later. It would be nice to have a better idea how much water is actually in the water well.
                    I would buy these again. I love them.

                      Best Uses

                        I used the containers to turn my deck railings into a garden. Looks great and easy to set up for planting. I'll see how the self-watering works when the temps hit 100s.

                              Best Uses

                                Bought the product for displaying flowers on my deck railing. Fits my 6 inch width railing perfectly. Used Gardener's self-watering container mix with it and so far its been working great. Was surprised how heavy it was once I got the soil, flowers, and water in it. Also wish it came in other colors such as terra cotta. I bought the brown one and it still looks good. Haven't had it long enough to see if it fades.
