Do window boxes need drainage?

It's absolutely necessary that a window box have drainage holes so plants do not sit in soggy soil. If your box does not come with holes, you will need to drill holes in the bottom before installation.

Can Window Boxes damage your house?

The first place to look for damage is the window box itself. Boxes made of wood will eventually deteriorate and rot. ... If the boards of the window box are separating from each other or feel soft to the touch, water damage is present and could be causing damage to the home.

Do window boxes go on all Windows?

For the best effect, install window boxes that are about the same length as your windows. Don't choose anything that is off by more than a couple of inches. Don't de-pot plants if you want to change them often.

What color should Window boxes be?

Your window box should be the trim color, sash-shutter color, or sometimes the accent color. Never paint your window box a new color that is not already on your house already for it will stand out as a separate feature not one that is part of and harmonizes with the rest of the house.

Should a window box be wider than the window?

For the best visual effect, your window box should be at least as wide as the window but should not extend more than three inches beyond the trim on each side.

What do you line window boxes with?

Flower or window box liners are plastic trays or sheets of coconut fiber material used to line the bottom of flower or window boxes and planters before potting plants with soil inside.

How do you keep a window box from falling down?

To stop your window boxes falling off, always make sure they're secured. Metal brackets bolted to the wall can extend your windowsills, as well as help to secure the containers. You could also screw eyelets into the wall each side of the window box, then tie in the window box with some strong wire.

What do you put in the bottom of a window box?

In addition to drilled holes, stones and gravel are essential to proper drainage of windowboxes. Put a two- to three-inch layer of pea gravel or pebbles in the bottom of the planter. This will allow water to filter through the soil and gravel before passing through the drilled holes.

What do you do with window boxes in the winter?

Tuck pretty fallen leaves and twigs (or use preserved leaves and branches, found at craft stores) among them. For the winter, replant the boxes with little evergreens.

How do you waterproof a window box?

Line the inside of the wooden planter box with thick plastic. Thick, 6 mil polyethylene sheeting, commonly used for greenhouses, works well -- but even a plastic trash bag can be used to waterproof the inside of the planter. For best results, fold the trash bag in half to double the thickness of the liner.

Where do window boxes go?

In general, window boxes look best if they are the same width as the window, but there are exceptions to the rule. For example, if your home has shutters or wide exterior trim pieces, you may want your window boxes to run under these architectural features or sit slightly inside.
