    By Ronnie

    from Brimfield, IL

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Had to return
    • Too Wide For My Railing
    • Very Nice Though

    Cons

    • Had to return
    • Negative 52 Shipping
    • Since They Were To Big
    • To return

    Best Uses

    • Railing I Love Flowers

    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.

    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.

    Great self-watering planters!

    By John

    from Durham, NC

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

      Cons

        Best Uses

          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.

          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

                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.

                      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

                          Best Uses

                          • 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.

                          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.

                            • 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.
