Deck with Rockit Brand Brackets

Asheville, NC, March 2012 : In the past, people who live in apartments, or small spaces in urban areas, were limited in gardening possibilities. Thanks to Rockit brand brackets, balcony garden ideas are abundant for urban gardeners and apartment dwellers, whether they rent or own. Consumers with wrought iron, aluminum, vinyl, wood, or composite decks and balconies can add flower pots, bird feeders, planters, shelves and decorations to their outdoor areas with the innovative Rockit brand brackets. This is essential for renters because there is no need to drill holes or cause structural damage to rented property to have a beautiful patio or balcony garden.

Blue Ridge Bracket Company's entire line of brackets attach to pickets from 1 and ¼ “to a standard 2” picket in seconds with no tools required. With the addition of their wrought iron adapters, the brackets will attach to wrought iron, vinyl, aluminum and composite pickets any size between ½” to 1 and 1/4”. Consumers with wrought iron balconies have shown great enthusiasm for this line of products thanks to their ability to create a garden in a way that was previously impossible. Rockit brand brackets give apartment dwellers the ability to add privacy to their balcony as well as add a unique look to their neighborhood. Urban gardeners can grow broccoli, carrots, radishes, lettuce, tomatoes, spinach ,and a plethora of other vegetables and fruits from the comfort of their balconies, patios or decks. Space is not a problem since flower pots and planters can be elevated or hung to maximize the area available. Another feature of Rockit brand brackets is that they can be moved in seconds. This means that a plant can be moved throughout the day to maximize or minimize sun exposure.
