    Great for decks

    By Betsy

    from Ashburn, VA

    Pros

      Cons

        Best Uses

          Bought 2 planters last summer, and will be ordering 2 more this summer. Our deck gets a lot of late afternoon sun, but my plants did just fine - great way to add a lot of extra color to our deck without taking up more floor space with pots. Was able to get a lot of plants into one planter with no issues whatsoever.

          Two things to note - you do have to drill out the drainage hole before filling with soil. Also, the planters are heavy enough when filled that they tend to stay put, but it is possible for them to fall off. I let one planter get too dried out and the tall plants just caught the wind and the whole thing flipped off my deck. I will figure out a way to add an extra attachment next summer, just in case.

              I was looking forward to using these because my current rail pots were starting to wear. I was very disappointed that I had to pay shipping to receive them and I had to return them it was $52. that's more than one cost!!!! Probably won't buy again unless I'm certain that I will not have to return.

              Best Uses

              • Small areas

              Great planter box for a railing. Plenty of planting space, nice water reservoir, very well made. Be sure to evenly distribute plantings at front and back of planter. I made the mistake of planting ipomoea (ornamental sweet potato) only in the front side of the planter - let's just say it didn't survive the drop from my 3rd story condo. Lesson learned! I bought another one and will balance out my plantings next year.

                    We bought four of these planters and they are perfect for our deck. We were particularly pleased with the "perfect fit" on the railing - they will not roll off. It has a perfect design for our deck as we look off into our woods.

                        I'm glad that I purchased the self watering planters in the cream color. They look great on our front porch and match the railing. They fit right over the railing and require no screws or nails.

                              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.

                                  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!

                                  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.
