drainage and water damage? - how do the boxes drain and are there issues with excessive moisture on the deck from watering?

It's been here for about 15-20 years and no issues. Not sure on the drainage, but I don't think there is any.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

When we came up to see their newly purchased moldy shack, we all thought Sally and Steve had lost it. But they had vision, and a very bright builder, who came up with all kinds of great ideas and details, right down to these windowboxes that are built into the deck railing.
Becky Harris added this to Charm Up Your House With Windowboxes
I can't do a windowbox ideabook without including this shot from my aunt and uncle's house in the Berkshires. The builder cleverly built three of them into the deck railings.
