Creative Garden Planters & Window Boxes – Have Some Fun in the Garden!

Summer is here and it’s time to get creative and have plantings in place to take root for the summer!  Take inspiration from these fabulous photos that we have curated from around the internet.  Ok, so we admit it – not many of us have an old VW to convert into the world’s largest flower planter — but you can purchase elegant pots and window boxes to make your entryways, patios and pool areas that much more special!  Be creative and mix things up.  We love the subtle touches in the second photo (from Houzz.com) where the homeowners took fabulous blue and white ceramic pots and tied them in nicely with a bright Buckingham blue door!  (the fox head door knocker is a nice touch, too!)

There are alternatives to traditional window boxes – such as placing ceramic pots on a bracketed ledge.  Window boxes come in all shapes and sizes ranging from painted wood to wrought iron — we’ve even seen some wine boxes converted to window boxes!  We often think of the English Countryside when we think of window boxes, but they are also great for city dwellers who have a green thumb and limited space!

 

Bring the indoors “out” this year, add some color and have fun!
Here are some brand new Indoor/Outdoor planters we have.  Enjoy!
