The short end works well for 2- to 4-inch railings, while the long end fits 4.5- to 6-inch railings. For added convenience, the flower box holder comes with a patented non-tip bumper at the base, which prevents the holder and flower box (not included) from tipping, so there's no spilling of soil or water to worry about.

I am growing my little outdoor herb garden in these flower boxes. About two to four different herbs fit into each.

This product is great! I purchased 8 of them for every side of my deck, holds up well and have had no problems.
Amazon Review, Exactly what I wanted July 04, 2013
Reviewer: Darlene S.
The flower box holder was exactly what I needed. It was easy to mount, is strong, looks good, and holds the flower boxes upright without tilting them over the deck.
I would definitely order again.
Amazon Review May 27, 2013
My flower box holder arrived in perfect condition and was wrapped carefully in lots of packing paper. The bronze finish is beautiful. The holder is of very sturdy construction made of powder coated metal that will hopefully stand up to the elements. Very easy to assemble and a very pretty alternative to the plastic coated metal holder that I had been using. It fits perfectly over my 4 inch wide railing.

Bought 6 of these for my patio... what else can I add that hasn't already been outlined? They look more black than bronze, especially from downstairs. They have L-brackets that can be flipped for different width railings. We didn't need to drill at all to secure these, but it would be very easy to add an extra screw to anchor them if you do desired. There's even a small protruding wire underneath to help the flower box stay level. I like that I can expand these later as needed when we move to a larger home. Would very happily purchase again and recommend!
Flower boxes and biodegradable coco planters offer a wonderful way to bring life and color onto a deck. They may be incorporated into the deck design very easily by hanging them over the railing. Alternatively flower boxes may be placed directly on the deck railing. Another option is to use freestanding flower boxes, coco baskets and plant stands.
If you are building a new deck or having one built, carefully consider how you can incorporate flower boxes into the design of the deck.
If you are planning to have deck railing, think about adding flower boxes to hang over the deck railing. If the deck is situated at a lower level you may want to use flower box stands to hold the flower boxes so that the plants are in line with the deck level.
There are many different types and styles of flower boxes that you can buy such as those lined with biodegradable coco, or plastic inserts. Flower box holders are another option.
Once you have your flower boxes in place, all that’s left is to fill them with soil and plant the flower boxes with pretty annuals, flowering shrubs, or various herbs.
Deck Railing Tips
The type of deck railing you include in your deck designs can have a huge effect on the style and decor of the deck. Even though deck railing is included primarily for safety reasons, it is essential to give careful consideration to the deck railing you choose. Here are expert tips that will help you with your own deck railing design and decor.
There are various types of deck railing including those that have top caps, those built with bollards and ropes, and even those that have steel cable rails so that they don’t get in the way of the view. Choose a deck railing that is in keeping with the style of your house and garden.
Keep in mind how you’d like to decorate your deck railings.
Flower boxes lined with biodegradable coco that can either be hung over the railing or on top, are a perfect way to add life to deck railings.
Flower box holders can also be used to add style to deck railings.
Multi-purpose planters are another option for adding color and personality to deck railings.
Use the same wood for your deck railing as you used for the deck itself and any steps that might lead to the deck. Also finish the deck railing wood in the same way, with the same type of sealant.
If you are building your own deck, use a hand-held router to bevel the edges of the deck railing and capping to create a more professional finish.
The simplest deck railing consists of a series of posts attached to the side of the deck. But you can easily create a deck railing with a crisscross effect by positioning wood posts diagonally with a lap joint in the middle. Just cut a block out of each post, halfway down and slot them together. A low level deck doesn’t need deck railing at all.
