Prefect Fit Balcony Railing Planter Box


The boxes are very attractive and easy to install. After reading the other reviews, I was afraid to use the self- watering feature I removed the self-water feature so the flower roots can have more room to grow. I only wish they would sell boxes without the self-watering feature at a lower price. Even with buy one get the second one 1/2 off they are pricey for just a plastic box.

Beautiful Railing Planter


I bought the white planter and it is exactly what I was looking for! It is beautiful and sleek looking. No drilling or set up required, which is important for an apartment renter like me. It look me all of 15 minutes to put together and fill with my herbs! I would have given it five stars, but I took a star off because the water gauge does not work. Without the gauge, I do not know how much water is in the reservoir and if any water is being fed to my plants. That being said, having a broken water gauge does not effect the plants, as they are all very happy. I just wish I could see how much water was in the reservoir. Overall, I love this planter and would definitely buy more in the future.

Love the color and sturdiness


The planter fit perfectly over our metal deck railing that is 1.5 inches wide. Our neighbors also love them! Still trying to figure out how the set-watering thing works. I would also recommend purchasing the special potting mix for these. It seems to stay quite moist. Thank you!





This planter fits my railing perfectly. And looks so stylish. A great asset to my deck!

May need some adjustment


I have about a 1" wide railing. The planter accommodates a range of railing widths, and this causes the planter box to cant downwards somewhat (not level). This can easily be fixed by placing (in my case) about a 1" piece of wood between the railing and the planter box. You can not see the block of wood since the "lip" on the planter is sufficiently long to hide it. Now the planter box is perpendicular to the railing, the water reservoir is now level, and it looks great. The weight of the planter "pinches" the piece of wood between the box portion of the planter and the railing.

It's still snowing in Central New York right now so I haven't been able to use this yet but I really can't wait! I ordered the red and it's a really pretty red, almost a burgundy which is just what I wanted. I did try it on my porch railing and it's a great fit!

Great Quality.


Bought these in red for a commercial building and they really popped! Looked great and the plants are holding up well in the self-watering system. The planters fit a 2" rail perfectly and the rest very securely.

Great product. I just ordered 4 more of them.


I purchased 2 of these self-Watering Balcony Railing Planters a few years ago. I have gotten so many compliments on these. So I bought 4 more this year. They keep the plants moist if I forget to water. They fit down over the porch railings, and even great gusts of wind do not have any effect on them. Great product.
