Little Garden, Big Style
Window boxes squeeze all the charm of a cottage garden into just a few feet. If you love to garden but don't have much time or acreage, you'll love window boxes.
Window boxes are available in a variety of materials. Redwood and cedar boxes weather to a beautiful patina but must be replaced every few years. Plastic boxes don't rot and are inexpensive, but they look less refined. Copper, fiberglass, and zinc are durable but expensive. Remember to attach boxes to your home with corrosion-free screws like galvanized or stainless steel decking screws.
