Laguna Window Box - Classic Beauty | Solution-Based Technology

Window Box Design Feature: The Laguna

Now a household name, Hooks and Lattice Laguna Window Boxes were created as an elegant window gardening solution that never needs to be replaced. That’s right, this ever-popular flower box is made from a solid core PVC composite material. This material looks and feels like wood, but you don’t have to worry about it ever rotting, warping, twisting, peeling, chipping, or the myriad of issues that come with wooden planters. They’re inherently white, so there is also never the need to refinish, and they clean up easily using a damp cloth. Truly the best of both worlds: classic beauty and solution-based technology.

Three Ways to Laguna

Laguna PVC window boxes are offered in three basic designs – direct mount, cleat mount, and XL cleat mount. All are made of 5/8″ thick, solid core PVC composite and include pre-drilled drainage holes. With over a decade of window box manufacturing experience and a team of talented craftsmen, Hooks and Lattice brings you the highest quality container gardening products on the market. Read on to learn more about the three types of Laguna style boxes available:

1. Direct Mount

The most permanent and secure way to mount a window or wall planter, direct mount Laguna flower boxes install using 3/8″ diameter lag bolts and can also be used as railing planters with stainless steel brackets.

2. Cleat Mount

The fastest and easiest way to install a window box planter, our unique integrated cleat system runs the entire length of the box for maximum support. Simply affix the cleat to any flat vertical surface and attach the planter. This design is ideal for people looking for easy, instant curb appeal and those who change out planting seasonally.

Artificial Plants

Outdoor Artificial Flowers vs Silk Flowers: Know the Difference

An empty window box, outdoor planter, or hanging basket is not only a sad sight. It also detracts from your home’s curb appeal. Faux azalea flowers, shrubs and other artificial outdoor plants give you a way to keep your planters full of color all year long.

When decorating a home or commercial property, plants can help bring more life and style to any property, inside or out. Unfortunately, not everyone has the time to care for live plants. But, there is an alternative – faux flowers.

Our beautifully designed, commercial quality faux flowers appear as lifelike and detailed as the real thing. Compared to the silk flowers that are commonly available at craft stores, commercial grade poly-blend artificial flowers are built to withstand the abuse of mother nature. Outdoor artificial flowers offer the perfect solution for your window boxes and planters. Read on to learn why you should use outdoor artificial flowers over cheap silk flowers. Read more

If you want a bold look, then you may want to examine the many Decora style planters and liners that we have available.

Del Mar Decora Window Box

The Del Mar Decora features hand bent scrolls and delicate details.

Metal Liners that fit Decora Window Boxes:

These planters are constructed from durable wrought iron that is powder coated to protect the planter against rain and severe weather. You can choose from multiple planter liner styles when adding a Decora planter, including real copper or galvanized metal liners. These window box liners should provide years of use and allow you to choose a color and style that matches your existing decor.

Complement Your Rustic Styling with Distressed Wood Boxes

For those of you that prefer a more rustic style, we also have a selection of distressed window boxes constructed from fiberglass. These planters are designed to mimic the look and feel of real distressed or reclaimed wood. You can choose from dark hickory, cherry, and driftwood finishes. By choosing a fiberglass window box, you can enjoy years of use, without worrying about warping, decay, and damage as you would a real wood planter.

Add Plant Life to Your Porch with Hanging Flowers

In addition to window cage planters and fiberglass wood planters, you can bring plant life to your porch with the use of hanging flower baskets. There are many designs to choose from. But, our most popular options remain the English Garden hanging baskets. These baskets are constructed from flat wrought iron bars and lined with an eco-friendly coconut liner. This is the perfect choice for displaying hanging flowers.

Step 1: Choose Hanging Basket Size

Step 2: Optimize Irrigation

Step 3: Stock Up on Replacement Liners

Choosing a Location for Your Outdoor Planters

There are many ways to use planters and hanging baskets to decorate the exterior of your home. Planters can be mounted below window sills, along railings, or on your balcony. Hanging baskets can be attached below the overhang of a porch or from a tall fence post. For all of your mounting needs, we have an assortment of window box brackets, braces, and planter hangers. This allows you to choose any location along the outside of your home for displaying vibrant plant life.

Here’s to All Things Easy–Especially Curb Appeal!

These are just a few examples of easy curb appeal ideas. There are many ways to transform your home. But, outdoor planters and flower boxes offer affordability and ease. Our selection of quality hanging flower baskets and wood boxes make the perfect addition to any home. They are easy to mount along windowsills, patios, railings, or hang from your porch.
