Comments about : 30" 2 x 4 Railing Planter:

Some of my sections on the front porch railing are longer than others, so I have used both the 24 and the 30 inch planters. Wonderful!

      Comments about : 30" 2 x 4 Railing Planter:

      These over the rail window boxes gave me the opportunity to add some beautiful seasonal color without having to get out a tool box. Unlike many others on the market, this one has enough depth for healthy root growth. It is suprisingly sturdy, and fits quite securely over my porch railing. The containers also provide good drainage which I considered very important. I receive lots of compliments and now my neighbors bought three for their porch!

          Awesome product. We live in the Midwest and these have never blown off the deck. Great height for viewing the flowers from inside. Drains well. Doesn't damage the deck. I can't say enough about the complements we receive about these. Easy to store for the winter also.

              They sit solidly on the porch railing and don't harm the railing like the metal holders I had for hanging pots. I will just fill the planters and eliminate the hanging baskets this year.

              I like this planter, but I also bought the bigger self-watering planter. It is worth the extra few dollars to get the sturdier, heavier self-watering planter. This one is not bad at all, just not as fabulous as the self-watering one.

                I originally bought two and filled with dirt and seeds. Well, it looked so beautiful on the porch rails, I ordered another one to make the porch complete. My husband came in the driveway after installing and said from the road they really made a difference on how the house looks.
