Spring Showers? No Rot, No Worries! (And They’re Bug-Proof Too!)

Spring showers bring May flowers but also wood rot and insect infestation for many window boxes. But our PVC window boxes are made with a water- and insect-resistant composite material, making them rot-proof, mildew free, and completely bug-proof! Not only that, but they won’t crack or dent no matter how long you’ve had them or how much soil, plant, and water weight they hold.

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.

The XL version offers a generous planting space for medium to large container plants. It measures 10.5″ deep x 10.5″ tall and is available in 24″ to 72″ standard lengths. This design adds stately architectural detail to any exterior.

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
