How to Decorate your Deck with Flower Boxes
Flower boxes and biodegradable coco planters can add some wonderful color to a deck. If your deck has a suitable railing, that's the natural place to host a hanging flower box. If that won't work, try placing a flower box directly on top of the railing -- just be careful to secure it from falling! More options include using freestanding flower boxes, coco baskets and plant stands.
If you are building a new deck, plan ahead so you can include the flower boxes you want on your deck. CobraCo's adjustable hanging basket and flower pot holders offer an opportunity to customize and redecorate your space throughout the year.
When planning your deck railing, think about how flower boxes can hang over the deck railing. If the deck is near the ground, you may want to use flower box stands. These raise a flower box up, and doing so brings the plants in line with the deck.
Looking for a liner for your planter? Try using a biodegradable coco liner, an eco liner or plastic inserts. Flower box holders are another option.
Once you have your flower boxes positioned appropriately on your deck railing, all that’s left is to make your plant selections!
