I bought the containers at a local nursery here in Vancouver but they don't carry them anymore. Here's a link to the product.

They don't have any drainage holes in them when you get them but it's easy to drill a couple of holes for drainage in the liner. The homeowner was not allowed to have water dripping out onto the lower balcony so the water drains directly into the long planters. I have also added some weight to the container by placing bags of soil in the bottom. This helps keep them stable if there is a fair amount of wind. I hope this helps!
