Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by allthingsvu Not secure, poorly designed
I was excited to get this so we can add some flowers to the balcony since we don't have much in front of our house. When this arrived it had 6 L brackets and a bunch of screws with plastic end caps. The trough itself is beautiful but it is not very secure. No instructions on how to hang this safely. The L brackets just hangs the trough over the side. The screws are locked in place by plastic end caps. It feels very lose and doesn't seem like it will hold it securely hanging over a driveway. I had to bend the L brackets and use a metal wire to securely hold it in place. I would not recommend this product where it can fall on someone or a car. Highly unsecured metal planter.

The Kingston Horse Trough Metal Planter has an attractive design that mimics wrought iron work. It is a very sturdy planter that comes with a natural coir liner in which to plant your flowers or vegetables. The back of the planter has three places you can attach the hanging brackets, and the brackets themselves can be adjusted for width. You may also hang the planter directly against a wall. I chose to mount mine on my back porch railing and fill it with flowers. Because of the style of railings I have, the planter does tilt a bit when hung, but not enough to cause concern for the flowers. The coir fiber lining has not torn or given away at all. I like the look of the planter and may purchase more to hang on the back porch.

When we went to install this metal planter in our back yard, we had the goal to plant both basil and thyme. We were able to fit 4 total plants in this planter! Which was very exciting.
Then we went to actually install the planter and we learned that our patio, the way it was built, did not work with the brackets provided. What we ended up doing is just drilled wooden screws into our patio (1.25 inch wooden screws #8) and it worked!

This review is for Cobraco 36 IN. KINGSTON HORSE TROUGH METAL PLANTER. Installation was easy. I hang it on the railing of my porch. The planter leans towards the front once loaded but the same thing happens to all my other four horse trough metal planters so I am ok with that. The planter is built with solid metal. I like the pattern. The coco liner fits well. I am happy with this product.

I made a lively window box with a variety of colorful flowers. I am looking forward to watching the flowers mature and bring a smile to my wife's countenance each time she looks out the kitchen window.

This was one of the few planters with brackets that were versatile enough to fit my deck rails. The planters are beautiful, sturdy and durable.
