Balcony Railing Planters for your Home

Everyone needs a bit of greenery and life in their environment. There’s something soothing about plants, flowers, and herbs, which is why most people have some sort of garden in their home. Unfortunately, not all properties have enough space for a full-fledged garden but that doesn’t mean you have to give it up.

 

At Boston Ironworks, we recommend placing planters on or around balcony railing. Planters can help you create small gardens so you have some greenery around you. Here’s a look at different kinds of options available:

1. Planter Box

This is a great option because it doesn’t take up balcony floor space. You can place the planter on the balcony railing, deck railing, fence, and other such installations. These planters have sturdy blankets at the back of the planter that hooks over the railing. The brackets fit snuggly and will ensure the planter doesn’t tip over or fall down.

You can install a removable water reservoir to ensure there’s no muddy water running down the railing. The designs of these planters can be customized to suit your specific requirements and the styling of your balcony.

3. Raised Planters

These are a good solution if you don’t want to place planters on a balcony railing but still want the plants off the floor and within easy reach. Raised planters are a good solution for people with limited mobility or physical health conditions. They can tend to the plants without having to bend down. The garden is also more visible when it is in an elevated position. These planters are decorative and functional and very practical too. Since these two are custom designed, you have the option to choose the styling, height, and shape you want.

4. Deep Planter

This is similar to raised planters but they have deeper pockets and can support plants with large root systems. You can grow different kinds of herbs and vegetables in these planters. They also have rustic look at fits in organically with a garden environment. The v-shape design allows you to plant shallow-rooted plants on the outside and deep-rooted ones on the inside.

We can design and fabricate balcony planters that meet your requirements and fit your budget. For questions and inquiries regarding balcony railing, you can call Boston Ironworks at 617 657 3117. You can also fill in this contact us form. We’ll get in touch with you as soon as possible.
