While this planter isn’t going where pictured, I thought I would share another fantastic idea for making use of the limited space on balconies and decks. The same rain gutter planter in this post can be used very effectively on the rail of your deck or balcony.
Here is my planter pictured on the rail of my balcony. As you can see it couldn’t be a more perfect size to fit there and would be ideal for a number of spices, lettuce or flowers. Since it is made from rain gutters, corner connector pieces are available, so you can build the exact size of planter you would need to make use of every inch of that precious space. It can be painted and it’s weather safe and is also pretty nice to look at too. It would look pretty great as window planters on the outside of windows too.
If you try it, let me know. I am always curious to see what readers do with my ideas!
