An Attractive Faux-Wood Flower Box

With our Solera Premier direct mount flower boxes we offer all the elegant traditional charm of the XL Hampton Premier flower box in smaller and more cost effective package, great for more modestly sized homes or those homeowners seeking a more craftsman look. Like all of our PVC window boxes and planters available at Hooks & Lattice, this direct mount flower box is designed to give you all the decorative appeal of a handmade planter with the resilience of an outdoor functional piece. These lovely white planter boxes mount directly beneath your window or to any flat vertical surface to bring a touch of floral splendor to your façade and yard. Consider addingfaux brackets for architectural detail.

Resilient PVC Window Boxes and Planters

The Solera Premier window box planter features a classic design with pronounced trim around recessed panels on both the front and sides. This design gives the planter box a more interesting look without being overly ornamental, perfect for Old World and country styles of home décor. This PVC planter comes in a standard white finish that matches well with any color scheme, but can also be easily painted to your desired hue. Since PVC is so amenable to finishes, you can even add textured finishes for a stone or wood effect.

Maintenance-Free Flower Boxes

Our Solera Premier PVC window flower boxes have a handcrafted real wood look and feel but, unlike wood, will never cause you any of the maintenance headaches. These durable cellular PVC window boxes are virtually maintenance-free, in fact. They will never rot due to moisture, succumb to insect infestation, crack or chip, or swell and warp with temperature changes. These window boxes can be mounted directly on your exterior wall via mounting hardware available on our site. For a more elegant look we also offer faux-mounting brackets. And for even more maintenance ease, be sure to add the self-watering reservoir at checkout.

Installation guidelines can be found by clicking on the link named "Installation Guides" in either the dark green band at the top of each page or the light blue link in the left margin at the bottom of each page.

Please Note: We sell mounting bolts for our composite window boxes separately and can be found on the right side of each product page or on our "Window Box Brackets & Bolts" web page. The reason we don't automatically supply bolts and hardware is due to the many different types of walls and siding used throughout the U.S. Your bolt requirements will vary based on the type of wall or siding your home or office has. All of our "Standard" size composite window boxes come with an innovative cleat mounting system that allows you to mount the single composite cleat to your home and then neatly hang the window box. All of our Iron and Aluminum window box cages and hayrack troughs come with pre-drilled 1/4" holes on the back of the cage. Mounting brackets that offer both structural support and add decorative detail are available but also sold separately.

For composite window boxes we recommend you mount them directly to your wall (vs. a bracket) using 3/8" diameter X 3 1/2" long bolts for wood and stucco siding but only when fully secured to the framing studs inside of the wall. Lag shields should be added with the lag bolts when mounting in brick, masonry or block.

For Iron Cages, Aluminum Cages and Hayrack Trough Window Baskets, we recommend (and sell separately) 1/4" diameter x 3" long lag bolts (and of course lag shields for brick, masonry or block).

We urge you to consult your local hardware store, handyman or licensed contractor for more specific direction if required.
