26 Ways to Add Window Box Planters and Style Up Your Home or Apartment
If you’re a homeowner window box planters are an amazing way to freshen up windows that don’t have much character on their own. You get a pop of color and a unique feature that gives your house more character. If you have a green thumb and nowhere to till soil (a.k.a. you live in an apartment) a window box planter will give you a little more real estate where you can work your gardening magic. Whether you live in a home or an apartment, it’s nice to see a lovely little garden every time you gaze out of the window.
You can purchase window box planters at a home improvement or gardening store, or make your own (here’s a handy tutorial). What you plant in your window box is totally up to you. Use the standard considerations (light exposure, precipitation, etc.) to make sure you choose flowers and other plants that will thrive.
