A design favorite amongst architects, interior designers, and famous home-makers, our Newport Self Watering Premier Direct Mount Window box looks and feels like a wood window box, but is actually made from cellular PVC. This Craftsman style window box provides a non-deteriorating surface that will not rot, chip, or warp like a real wood window box as it is made of maintenance free cellular PVC, which is handcrafted by our staff of professionals to ensure the utmost of quality and value.
The reservoirs that are included simply drop into the bottom of the window box, and the soil is placed directly on top of the reservoirs. The reservoir itself uses capillary action- when the soil begins to dry out, it creates a vacuum that then pulls the water up and out of the reservoir, watering your plants the right amount at the right time. The Newport Self Watering Premier Direct Mount Window Box comes in seven standard sizes which include 24", 30", 36", 42", 48", 60" and 72".
The Newport Self Watering Window Box Planters provide a simple yet elegant appearance to any exterior decor. Designed to match a Craftsman style home, they are also versatile enough to fit most modern and traditional homes as well. They come with straight square corners and crisp lines at their base, while the top and sides include an attractive trim that sets them apart from plain window box planters. It's no wonder the Newport planters and deck flower boxes have become so many of our customers' favorites. Yet one of the most prized qualities of all in the Newport is the self watering capability it possesses. Complete with a drop in reservoir system, these window boxes are more than attractive; they are practical too.
Benefits and Features of Newport Planters
There are numerous benefits to the Newport window box planters, chief among them is its self watering capability. Since reservoirs come with the planter, there's no special measuring or ordering to procure a separate reservoir. The reservoirs themselves provide water to roots, keeping them nourished and hydrated through capillary action. As the roots get thirsty, they simply 'drink up' water available in the surrounding moistened soil. Easy to fill, simply pour water in the tube when needed and the plants do the rest! Planting is also simple. Fill with soil on top of the reservoir, add flowers or foliage, and add water to the reservoir. Most plants stay hydrated up to 2 weeks, depending on weather conditions and plant type.
Durable PVC Construction is Long-Lasting
PVC is one of the most durable and long lasting materials on the market today. While it mimics the look of wood, it has none of wood's drawbacks. It won't crack, rot, warp, chip or peel. Plus, it's light in weight so moving and mounting is easily accomplished with the appropriate brackets. Besides making the perfect window planter, the Newport can be mounted on fences, or even flush against walls as a decorative focal point. They can even be used as deck flower boxes to set on floor platforms or to line patio perimeters. We carry numerous standard planter sizes, from 24" on up to 72" but custom sizes are also available. When measuring for your window box, add 2" to planter length and 1" to width to account for trim.
