Deck Railing Planters

FlowerWindowBoxes.com is a manufacturer direct of deck rail planters and flower boxes for porch and balcony railings. All of our railing planters can be attached to decks, porches and balconies with our durable steel hooks. We can also make custom deck rail hooks to fit your needs.

We offer three types of planters for your decks and porches to choose from to accommodate almost any exterior design:

  • Over-the-railing planters that hang over rails and add curb appeal
  • Rail-top planters that sit atop rails and create more privacy
  • Freestanding deck planters that sit on the ground and create boundaries or gardening spaces

  • The Charleston box is our featured deck rail planter model; however, any of our models can be used for hanging over rails, and each one features a patented self-watering reservoir option.

    Deck, Balcony and Porch Railing Hooks for Flower Boxes


    For boxes hanging over rails, we offer eight different sized hook attachments to handle 99 percent of the types of deck rails out there. Our 2x4, 2x6, and 2x8 deck rail hooks will fit snug over wooden deck rails using standard dimensional lumber in those sizes. Our 1.5" - 3.5" fence rails hooks can be used to slip over a variety of non-standard rails such as curved, vinyl, metal, and composite rails. Check out our diagrams at the bottom of this page to help you decide which hook may make the most sense for your railing planters.

    For boxes that sit atop rails, our rail-top planter line will accommodate flat rail tops using standard 2x4 and 2x6 wood beams. However, we sometimes get custom requests for sitting our planters on non-standard rails, and on many occasions we have custom made our rail-top planters for unique customer applications.

    How to attach planters and flower boxes to rails

    * The small square with an X in it is an offset strip to keep the box from tilting forward. We provide one for you which will accommodate most cases.

    Balcony Rail Planters

    Our balcony rail planters are a great fit for transforming a balcony into a garden paradise. The metal brackets simply bolt into the back of our boxes and allow the boxes to easily fit over railings from 1.5" wide up to 3.5" wide. Custom width railings can be accommodated upon request.
