In fact, adding flowers to railings of all kinds, including front porch rails, creates a magical Spring Wonderland certain to boost any home’s curb appeal.
Deck Brackets for Every Kind of Railing
Choices abound in deck railing planter brackets, the most common of which include:

- Railing Shelf Bracket
- Deck Drape with 9″ Shelf
- Deck Clamp Bracket – 8″ Shelf.
The Rail Planter Box Bracket Adjustable Pair
Available in 36″ and 48″ widths, the Rail Planter Bracket Adjustable Pair measures 5.5″ long by 9″ high for a secure and tidy fit on your deck railing. Securely holding plant box containers up to 42″ long or 60″ long respectively, you can even buy two window box brackets kits for window boxes as long as 72″ long. Mount by clamping onto your planter box, then attaching to the vertical rails. Simply insert appropriate hardware sleeve nuts and loosely screw bolts into both ends, making sure the entire apparatus is level. Once leveled with bolts and screws in place, finish tightening for a snug fit. (Additional mounting instructions on our website.)

Perfect for aluminum and wrought iron planter cage containers, the Rail and Balcony Brackets are exceedingly simple to install. Measuring 2.5″ long and easily adjustable to the width of your railing–from .75″ up to 5.5″ wide–they are ideal for most metal railings. Black powder coated metal matches your railing, allowing them to blend seamlessly. Each bracket comes with a .25″ hole (bolts sold separately) for a secure fit. Fill plant cages with vibrant blooms and blossoms and voila, your deck becomes an instant Spring Wonderland, dressing up any small gardening space!

The 8.5″ X 8.5″ wrought iron bracket is sleek and streamlined “becoming one” with any 2.5″ X 2.5″ patio and fence railing it conjoins. The adjustable clamps make this bracket adaptable with its hook top that rests securely over the railing itself. Simply affix brackets every 24″ of planter box length, and screw in tightly. They are so strong they can hold filled aluminum or iron plant cages. Finished with a black powder coating, the Railing Shelf Bracket resists rust, corrosion, chipping and peeling.
