Railing planters take flowers to a whole new level by setting the planter right on the railing of your deck, patio, or porch. You can create a fence of flowers that surround your deck.
Riding the Rail
Make every inch of your deck beautiful by installing a deck railing planter. These planters create a floral fence that adds beauty to your deck. Planters that go on your railings will give you that garden look without containers taking up space on your deck.
These planters sit on your railing and have a molded planter bottom. These are usually in the form of plastic planters mainly due to the fact that these are more lightweight. Railing style planters can also resemble traditional window boxes and these can be attached to the back of a deck bench or other sturdy seating you may have.
For those of you that don’t have a porch or a patio you can still use a rail planter. If you live in an apartment, the planter can be attached to the rail of a balcony or window sill. Some railing style planters also double as porch planters that can be placed anywhere.
A railing planter is also easier to maintain than flower beds that are dug into the ground.
This means they can give your backyard the beauty of a garden with less work. In fact, you’d be surprised how much a flower planter on your rail will liven up your porch, patio, deck, or balcony.
