A Terra-Cotta Box

Added Benefits

Place a window box container to give privacy to a room in public view. Plant the container lush and full for impact.

A terra-cotta box fits nicely on a wide window ledge, creating a living screen for a bathroom window. Clay pot feet slide under the front edge to level this container, which is on a sloping surface. An added benefit of using clay feet underneath a container is that it also improves drainage.

Impatiens cover the front of the box in colorful profusion, and tall cast-iron plant (Aspidistra elatior) adds height and year-round foliage to fill out the back.
