Adding a window box but not sure what size to build or buy? Learn how to size your window for planters with these simple tips.
The width of a window box should generally be equal to the width of the window or slightly smaller, depending on the size and style of the window.
This will ensure that the window box fits properly and looks proportional to the window..
If the window is very large, you may want to consider using multiple window boxes or a larger planter that spans the width of the window.
Additionally, it’s important to make sure that the window box is deep enough to accommodate the roots of the plants you plan to grow.
A depth of at least 6 inches is recommended for most plants but if you can, I’d go deeper so it doesn’t dry out as quickly.Just make sure you reinforce the boxes so it holds the additional weight of soil and plants.
