Turn Railings Into Floating Gardens


Railing planters have been around for decades. They are often awkward, unsightly, require complex installation, and make bigger promises than they deliver.

After struggling to find a way to add a second layer to my balcony garden, necessity became the mother of invention. I wanted an easy, tool-free way to create the kind of multi-tiered balcony gardens I only saw in Europe. My goal was to design simple railing planters to do what I call “railscaping.”

I've designed two railing planters to give you some new territory to explore: 

  1. The original PlantTraps® are a tool-free shelf planter that slides under the railing to extend the ledge beyond the face of the railing for container gardening.
  1. RailScapes are clips that mounts between the balusters/spindles for vertical gardening––right on the railing.

I hope you enjoy "railscaping" your happy place with these new options. I am proud to make the PlantTraps & RailScapes in America.
