Easy Tips for Planting Beautiful Window Boxes
Wednesday, November 14, 2018

Planting flowers in window boxes is a centuries-old style that gives your house an appealing look. The whole idea of planting bright seasonal flowers in window boxes is very European. There are two reasons why window boxes are so popular. First, it’s one of the most inexpensive ways to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your house. And second, it’s an excellent option for all those who don’t have a yard in their house.

Although planting flowers in window boxes is fairly easy, there are a few things that you need to be careful about if you want to install window boxes properly. If you’re doing this for the first time, this blog will help you do it the right way. Here are a few things that you need to keep in mind when planting flowers in window boxes.

1 - Measure Your Windows Properly

This is perhaps the most important thing. If you want the window boxes to be of the right size, make sure you take accurate measurements of your windows. Most people just buy flower boxes without measuring their windows, which is actually money down the drain.

2 - Use Plastic Lining

It’s best if you line window boxes with plastic. All you have to do is place a new lining sheet inside the box every time you plant the box. It’s best that you do that before the start of a new season.

3 - Install Window Boxes at Reasonable Height

Make sure you install window boxes at the right height so that the flowers are visible from the inside as well. Also, window boxes should be within easy reach. That would make it easier for you to water the flowers and maintain the boxes. People often install window boxes at an inconvenient height, which makes it difficult for them to maintain the boxes. Try to avoid that.

4 - Choose Fiberglass Boxes

Fiberglass window boxes are the best. Considering that fiberglass window boxes are rust and weather resistant and can tolerate the heat as well, there’s no better variety of window boxes than fiberglass. The custom drainage holes in these boxes make them almost maintenance-free.

Planting and maintaining flowers in window boxes can be a little demanding if you live a busy life. But that doesn’t mean you can’t add some life to your empty and boring windows. You can hire a professional service, like Flower Framers of Cincinnati, to plant and maintain your window boxes. The company keeps a seasonal check on your window boxes and keeps them in perfect order all year round.
