    Great Deck Railing Planter

    By Steve

    from VA

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Doesn't fade
    • Spacious
    • Sturdy

    Cons

    • Must Balance Plantings

    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.

    Pros

    • For Our Porch Railing As
    • Had Them Specially Made
    • Neighbors Thought That We
    • They Match Perfectly

    Cons

      Best Uses

        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.

        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.

              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!

                  Verified Buyer

                  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.

                  Pros

                  • Doesn't dry out quickly
                  • Roomy For Lots Of Plants

                  Cons

                    • deck
                    • porch

                    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.

                    Verified Buyer

                    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.

                      Pros

                      • Easy to use
                      • Holds a lot of water
                      • 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.
