Railing Planter Boxes

By Rob Harris

Planter boxes can hang off the side of the railing or sit on top.

The railings on your balcony or porch do more than keep you from falling; they give you an additional way to dress up your space with flowers, container vegetables or other plants. This lets you get the containers up off the floor, making them easier to see and care for.

Types of Planter Boxes

Dressing up your railing can mean setting a planter on top or hanging it off the side. Top-sitting planters have bases shaped similar to a saddle; the bottom is U-shaped so the planter can slide securely over the top of the railing and sit there without needing to be attached with screws. Measuring the width of your railing first ensures a snug fit. To hang planter boxes of the side, use brackets that attach to your railing. These often have a piece that juts out from the railing for the planter box to sit on, although some attach only to the back of the planter box. Make sure side-hanging boxes are firmly secured so they won't tip over and spill soil or fall on people below.

Positioning the Boxes

Consider how you use your porch or balcony before placing the boxes on your railing. If you enjoy entertaining outdoors and people often lean on your railing, boxes that hang on the outside of the railing might be your best option. For a bit of added privacy, planters that sit on top of your railing can help block neighbors' view of your space. If your goal is easy care and extreme visibility from inside the space, attach the boxes on the inside of your railing. Top-sitting planters and those hanging inside your porch or balcony tend to block the railing, so don't use these in high-traffic areas where people need to hold the railing, such as beside stairs.

What to Plant

Railing planter boxes often are narrow, so choose plants that don't need tons of root space. Annual flowers work well in railing planters, as do herb gardens. Seasonal vegetables can work, but try to avoid those that tend to get heavy and need to spread out, such as tomatoes (Solanum lycopersicum). Decorative grasses grow well in containers if spread out properly, usually 12 to 18 inches. Another option is to include draping plants that can add a sense of drama to the plantings.

Keeping Them Hydrated

Soil in containers usually dries out quickly, so plants in containers must be watered often. This can be a bit cumbersome if your planter boxes hang over the outside of your railing. Consider using a self-watering planter box, which has a water reservoir built in. Refill the water reservoir as needed, often every two weeks or so, and the water wicks into the soil as needed. Using a potting soil mix that includes a material such as vermiculite can help retain moisture near the plants while making sure there's no standing water in the container.


Planters indoor railing

If you want to add some color to your outdoor space this summer and are lucky enough to have a deck or balcony, buying a railing planter is an easy way to do it. They mount to the edge with hooks, ledges, or a cutout in the base, and are generally a snap to set up—and some require zero time to install. They look great solo or in multiples, spaced evenly along the railing, plus you don't need to spend a fortune on the project, as there are options in the market for $20 or less. We've rounded up our favorites, with recommendations below to suit every style and budget.

What to Consider

Shopping for a railing planters is somewhat similar to searching for the perfect window box. The first thing to take into account for railing planters is the width of your deck or balcony's railing. Several are made to set into wood that’s 2x4 or 2x6, and there are also planters that are adjustable, which is handy. If neither option works for you, your best bet is to choose one with hooks. Some are designed to be permanently mounted (and most come with mounting hardware).

Next up, you'll need to decide on material. Railing planters are typically made of high-grade polyethylene, wood, or various metals such as steel, typically powder-coated or galvanized to prevent rust, or copper, which takes on a weathered patina over time. The vast majority have drainage holes or slats at the bottom, and there are also self-watering planters, with reservoirs at the bottom.

How We Chose

Our selection includes railing planters with a minimum average four stars or more, and the majority of those featured below receive ratings of stars or higher. We cover planters in a range of materials, as mentioned above, and in a range of styles, with assorted finishes. We also offer options across multiple price points, from budget-friendly, under-$20 planters to high-end picks that hover around $ at the time of this writing.

It holds a generous amount of plants and can works with deck or balcony railings that are either 2x4 or 2x6.

Best Double-Sided

Winston Porter Railing Planter



This planter has a smart design, with two side-by-side planters that flank a railing. That means there’s no need for mounting hardware and you can move them around as you please.

They’re also extendable and can fit on railings of various widths, including round rails. The planter is available in dark green and terra cotta, in addition to the fresh-looking white that’s shown.


Best With Coco Liner

Panacea Products Iron Railing Planter



Coconut plant fiber liners hold water exceptionally well, which allow plant roots to take up moisture as needed, and also provide excellent drainage because they’re porous. This coco liner railing planter has a thick tuft of the material set inside a steel frame, with a black powder-coated finish to prevent rust. The inch-wide planter comes with hooks and mounting hardware, and it’s available in inch- and inch-wide sizes.
