Over-the-Railing Planters Are Perfect for Gardeners with Limited Space

Not every gardener has a large landscape for planting their favorite plants. But don't be discouraged. If you have limited planting space, railing planters are the perfect solution. You can use them to grow plants on balconies, decks, or patios.

Expand your gardening possibilities with planters for railings by creating a lush and vibrant garden even in the smallest spaces. Whether you want to add privacy to a small balcony or enhance the beauty of your deck, railing planters offer numerous benefits that cater to your gardening needs.

Imagine transforming your balcony into a private oasis by filling a railing planter with tall and trailing plants. These planters can create a natural screen, providing privacy while adding a touch of greenery to your outdoor space. Choose from various plants, such as lavender, gardenia, sweet alyssum, or hyacinths, to fill your railing planters and enjoy the delightful scents of nature.

You can combine over the railing planters with our round or square planters to add even more color and privacy to an apartment balcony, creating your garden oasis.

Use Deck Railing Planters as an Addition to Your Outdoor Space

Even if you have a fair amount of planting space, railing planters make a great addition to your outdoor environment. Don't let your deck space look barren when you can easily add a planter to complement your outdoor landscape. You can plant them with different types of plants to take advantage of sun conditions.

A deck railing planter filled with impatiens or begonias can add a pop of color to create a shady nook on your deck. Or attract pollinators to your yard by adding pollinators like lavender, coneflowers, yarrow, and sage. Hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees will find it irresistible.

These decorative planters also work perfectly on a front-porch railing. You can add color and charm to your entryway, instantly boosting your home's curb appeal. Consider filling them with vibrant flowers like marigolds, snapdragons, salvia, or zinnias. You're only limited by your imagination.

Practical and Delicious - Grow Herbs and Vegetables in Railing Planters

Over-the-railing planters can also serve practical purposes beyond adding beauty to your outdoor space. Use one or several to plant your favorite herbs and have fresh flavors readily available for your culinary creations. Imagine the convenience of snipping fresh herbs like basil, mint, or rosemary right from your railing planters.

Additionally, you can grow some of your favorite vegetables, such as peppers or cherry tomatoes, in a railing planter, turning your limited space into a bountiful source of homegrown produce.

Our railing planters are 10" deep, so they have plenty of space to produce a healthy root system for practically any vegetable you like. Just fill the planter with a quality potting mix, fertilize, and water as needed. You'll grow a lush garden that will be the envy of your neighbors.

Create a Miniature Garden Oasis with Over-the-Railing Planters

One of the remarkable aspects of railing planters is their versatility. Not only can you control the amount of sunlight your plants receive by positioning them strategically, but you can also create a captivating miniature garden.

Combine your railing planters with flower window boxes, wall planters, and other decorative containers to design your very own garden oasis. Let your creativity flourish as you arrange different plant varieties, colors, and textures to craft a unique and enchanting outdoor sanctuary.

Over-the-Railing Planters Offer No-Hassle Installation

Our over-the-railing planters are the perfect choice if you prefer a hassle-free gardening experience. Other railing planters require brackets for mounting. So you'll need to take the time to install them.

But you can say goodbye to tools, drilling, and complicated installations with our planters. Our straddle-style planters fit securely over standard railings (2x4 or 2x6) without any additional hardware. It's as simple as adding potting soil, selecting plant varieties, and setting the over-the-railing planter. And it stays securely in place. Just remove the two rubber stoppers on the bottom of the planters to ensure proper drainage.

Not all railing styles are the same, and we understand that. If you don't have standard railings, don't worry—we have a solution for you too. Our Countryside flower window boxes can be easily transformed into railing planters using brackets for mounting. This way, you can enjoy the benefits of our planters regardless of the type of railing you have.

Weather-Resistant and Low Maintenance Planters

When selecting a railing planter, it's crucial to consider its durability and ability to withstand outdoor conditions. While metal rail planters can rust and leak harmful substances, and wood planters may deteriorate over time, our planters for over railing are designed to last for years.

Crafted from a sturdy, fade-resistant, high-grade plastic blend, they maintain color and structural integrity even with prolonged exposure to the elements. UV-protected and frost-resistant, they can handle various weather conditions without losing appeal. Equally important, our over-the-railing planters won't absorb heat, keeping your plants cooler and reducing the frequency of watering required.

Choose Quality, Choose Made in the USA

When it comes to railing planters, quality matters, that’s why our planters are proudly made in the USA. We believe in delivering products that meet the highest standards of craftsmanship and durability, so you can trust that our rail planters will exceed your expectations. It's why we guarantee our planters to be effective and free from defects for up to 1 year from the original purchase date.

Does the Countryside Railing Planter fit any railing?

The Countryside Railing Planter fits most standard 2x4 or 2x6 railings without needing tools. As shown in the images below, that means your railings must be 3.5" or 5.5" wide. Please note our railing planter does not fit some curved/domed railings, at least not without some extra effort and tools. Also keep in mind that the planter may move around a little until you fill it with growing media. If it still moves after that, you can stabilize the planter by using some kind of wedge, like small pieces of wood, to fill in the gaps. That step shouldn't be needed unless your railings are narrower than we recommend.
