If you've always had a black thumb but still want the beauty and convenience of having a garden, then this self-watering PVC window box is for you. Whether you just don't have time to maintain the watering schedule your plants require, or you're new to gardening, this planter makes it easy. Just drop the included reservoir into the bottom of the planter, add soil, and plant your flowers. The capillary action pulls water up into the soil any time it gets too dry, providing moisture and nourishment directly to the roots, but without the risk of overwatering and the resulting root rot. Plants stay well-nourished and healthy, while you can get busy enjoying other things. The spacious planter is roomy enough for all manner of blooms while also providing enough space for edibles, vines, and other greenery. Made from PVC, it has the look and feel of real wood but without all the drawbacks. There's no rotting, insect damage, or warping, even in areas with harsh or inclement weather conditions. Your planter will maintain its style and function year after year. Need something unique? Call us to discuss your next design project and find the custom options that are right for you.

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.
