Window boxes are visually interesting and contained gardens. When done well, they open up your home to the world and can instantly boost your curb appeal. We’ve laid out our ten top tips to help you plant and maintain your house’s exterior window boxes.
  1. Your window box should be visible and enjoyed from inside and outside the house.

  2. Consider how much sun that particular window will get, this makes a big difference in making sure your plants will thrive.

  3. Fear of commitment? Consider placing potted plants in the window box and surrounding them with soil. This makes it very easy to swap them out.

  4. Ensure your window box is aesthetically balanced with plants that spill over the sides and naturally vine with taller, upright flowers and foliage.

  5. Don’t be afraid of color! A window box is not the place to play it safe with a monochromatic color scheme.

  6. Just like with any design, pick an interesting focal point to draw the eye to your home’s exterior.

  7. Make sure to fill the provided space, but don’t be afraid to stay simple if you’re a beginner.

  8. Hardy plants like small evergreens can help stabilize annuals. They’re easy to maintain and provide consistency if you do swap out plants fairly frequently.

  9. Don’t feel limited by flowers. Adding non-flowering foliage can also create consistency year-round.

  10. Know what’s in season! You’ll have the best luck planting the right things at the right time.
Improving your garden is a quick and easy way to boost your curb appeal. If you're looking for an even bigger boost, contact Peninsula Siding Company to discuss new exterior siding options for your home.
