One of my favorite projects this year was the addition of a window box. The best part – it was very easy and affordable. The kitchen was the perfect window because of the siding around the window. Now I can enjoy the view from inside my house, too.
We typically have 3 to 4 months out of the year where it could freeze in Texas. By adding plastic containers inside the boxes, I can quickly remove my plants in case of freezing weather. In the heat of summer, it is hard to keep plants in full sun alive. To save us from watering daily, we opted on a conversion kit to turn one of the sprinkler heads into 6 different drip lines.
