Maintaining Weather Resistant Window Boxes to Last All Year Round
Friday, January 25, 2019

Nothing adds to the curb appeal like a window box overflowing with luscious flora and undergrowth. These seemingly compact and simple fixtures bring the X-factor that draws eyes towards a house’s facade.

As picturesque and gorgeous as they are, window boxes need some gardening expertise and high-end flower boxes to last year round.
We are highlighting some of the important factors that will ensure the durability of flower boxes during every weather and season.

Flower Boxes

Flower boxes of sub-par quality will never make it to the end of the season, let alone the entire year. These boxes are placed outside the house, and they face the full brunt of harsh and extreme weather conditions.

In order for them to survive for a long time and keep their beauty, they need to have the following features:
  • Rust-free
  • Maintenance free
  • Made of high-grade, non-biodegradable material to last several years
  • Drainage holes to avoid accumulation of water in the boxes and cause mildew and rotting
  • Prevent soil from flushing out
  • Designed to regulate fresh air circulation
Additionally, window boxes bought for the purpose must also provide easy installations features so that they can be hanged, or installed on brick and brownstone walls easily.

Maintenance

A high-end flower box will guarantee the long life of the box; maintenance, on the other hand, will guarantee everlasting beauty.

Here are some tips to maintain your flower boxes in a way, that will make them last all year long, and even more:
  • Pick The Right Plants

    This choice solely depends on you and the time you have in your hands. If you are passionate about your flower boxes and take care of them every weekend, you can change, and plant flowers and undergrowth every season.

    On the other hand, if you cannot keep up with the changing seasons, plant annuals. Annuals live one summer, yet they bloom the entire season.

    Or you can simply pair colorful annuals with plants that trail down and give that beautiful effect of spreading and overflowing colorful blooms. If you are in doubt, hire an expert to help you make the right choice.

  • Groom Frequently

    Make sure to tend to your plants every other day. Remove dead and faded flowers. Even if you have planted flowers that need minimum grooming, do not slack off.

    The neater your flower box is, the better the chances of it growing busier and better.

  • Water and Feed
    This goes without saying, but it must be said. In order to keep the plants in top-notch condition and to extend their lives to the max, they must be watered properly.

    The soil should also be freshened as per requirements.
