Everyone seems to love our Cleat Mount Laguna Style Flower Box so we made a little smaller Direct Mount Version which is also more affordable and can be mounted directly to your wall. It simply mounts directly to the wall with lag bolts (and lag shields if mounting to block, brick or masonry). This Direct Mount Laguna Flower Box is made of maintenance free Cellular PVC which are hand made by our dedicated craftsmen and will never rot, crack warp or twist due to exposure to water, snow, ice or frost. Insects want nothing to do with them as well. This solid wall material looks and feels like wood and has the same density and weight as Pine. Most customers are amazed at the quality of workmanship that goes into these flower boxes and how they represent a real alternative to wood without looking shiny or plastic like.
All of our sturdy Laguna Flower Boxes (sometimes called flower planters) come in standard white, but you can easily paint them any color to suit your need. A Flower Box looks best when sized to the outer edge of your window trim or midpoint of your shutters but many people deviate based on their planned planting scheme and the use of spilling vines over the ends. The top and bottom molding on the Direct Mount Laguna flower box adds 1.25" to overall length and 5/8" to the width. In addition to our six standard sizes (24", 30", 36", 42", 48", 54", 60" and 72") we will gladly make any custom length you require. Simply call us for a quote.
If you have been thinking about boosting your home's curb appeal with a direct mount flower box, you have landed on the right page.
Overwhelmed with the popularity of our Cleat Mount Laguna flower box, we converted these lovely flower boxes into a smaller size as direct mounts, for convenience and for people looking for a permanent installation that deters theft and vandalism. These slightly smaller version window flower boxes are easy to mount to a wall using lag bolts, or lag shields if affixing to masonry, block, or brick walls. Made as maintenance free cellular PVC window boxes, they are lightweight and durable and will never rot. What's more, the material won't crack, warp, or split from harsh weather conditions. They are even insect resistant. And while this window flower box is a wood look-alike, it mimics woods look and feel while foregoing wood's disadvantages.
While all these small direct mount window boxes come in white, they can be painted to whatever color you prefer, either on your own or by our staff for an additional fee. The advantage to a white window box, however, is that it makes a perfect backdrop for bold blooms and blossoms. Whether filled with vibrant gerbera daisies or vining bluebells, your pristine direct mount flower box will stay looking as fresh and modern as the day you mounted it. And although originally designed for exterior use, they look just as great mounted on a wall inside your home.
Mounting Hardware Possibilities
We sell mounting bolts for our composite window boxes separately. This is done since different kinds of bolts or hardware may be required for different surfaces, be it flush walls, siding, or brick. For example, For Premier Direct Mount Window Boxes, we recommend you mount them directly to your wall, as opposed to using a bracket system. This mounting technique requires using 3/8" diameter x 3 1/2" long bolts for wood and stucco siding or masonry/brick, but only when fully secured to the framing studs behind the wall.
Hardware choices are conveniently placed on the right side of each product page. but can also be found on our Window Box Brackets and Bolts» web page. Lag shields should be added with the lag bolts when mounting onto brick, masonry, or block. If you are unsure how to mount or what kinds of hardware to purchase, please either check with your local hardware store, handyman, or licensed contractor for more specific direction if needed. You can also call and discuss with one of our flower box experts for additional information.
