Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AvidGardener Perfect Planters for my Front Porch, Beautiful Display
I bought two of these planters for my front porch. The rails measure only 3 inches in width. After reading other reviews, I just added some thin semi-rigid foam to fill in a small gap in the space where the planter fits onto the rail, and used the stabilizing legs against the balusters. Very nice design. These are very attractive and stable. I am very happy and plan to enjoy them for many years.

I purchased these over-the-rail planters on-line. The advertisement said they would fit a 6-inch deck railing, but the opening was only 4 inches. I ended up returning them. Someone at Home Depot should check the measurements before allowing something to be sold incorrectly.

They appear cumbersome, too large on top of my railing. I am using them as regular planters on the floor of the deck instead.

Decent sized planter, easy to install. A little annoying because it doesn't sit flush on the railing, had a slight rocking length-wise..

Might be good but the opening is not 6 inches. Only a railing of 4 inches or less will work. Because ours is 5 inches, the product was returned with disappointment.

I know that this review seems odd but the planters I ordered were well made but too large for the area I wanted to put them on. Would recommend them to people with large decks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EAikins Exactly what I needed
Our fence is pretty thin (1.5") so I was having a tough time finding large planters that would fit the narrow rail. We also needed something that wasn't permanent since we're in a rental. These planters were the perfect solution. A little wobbly at first, but the included stabilizers have kept the planters secure and level even after heavy waterings.
I spray painted ours a different color and drilled more drainage holes. Adding a chicken wire bonnet gave the morning glories and moonflowers something time climb on. We've been pleased with our purchase and really have enjoyed the extra garden space it gave our boring concrete patio!
