Save time on second story window boxes with outdoor artificial flowers. This example from a satisfied customer shows just how lifelike faux plants can look. Even above live floral arrangements on the first level, fake botanicals are radiant with authentic appeal.
To get a look similar to Dave's, start with the right window planter boxes. The selection at Hooks & Lattice offers comparable flower planters in traditional cedar styles, or the popular wood-alternative composite PVC window boxes. Just paint or seal to match the desired color, and add a faux flower arrangement to match the length of the box. To layer in cascading vines, outdoor artificial ivy does the trick.
