Fiberglass and PVC Planter Boxes
When you are looking for lightweight window box planters, you may want to consider using fiberglass or PVC planters. Fiberglass and PVC are nearly indestructible and are available in a wide range of styles and designs.
Among our most popular fiberglass window boxes are the Cleat Mount Laguna Planters. They feature clean lines that are perfect for colonial, Georgian or contemporary style homes.
These fiberglass designs can mimic the look of other materials, such as our Distressed Window Boxes or Bronze Fiberglass Planters. Both of these options have a rustic look that will help draw more attention to the exterior of your home.
Aluminum and Wrought Iron Window Boxes
If you are trying to dress up a brownstone or Tudor style home, you may want to take a closer look at our aluminum and wrought iron window boxes. They are also great for Victorian and Queen Anne style homes. The elegant handcrafted wrought iron has an authentic look. This captures the old world charm that is popular with a variety of home styling options.
Wrought iron options include our Arch Decora window boxes with crisscrossed bars that create a sophisticated look. For a bolder appearance, examine our European Window Box Cages. These cages are hand made from wrought iron. Arrange a series of 8-inch flower pots for a custom floral display.
Wood Window Box Planters
For those wanting a more natural look, you can use planter boxes constructed from wood. Redwood and cedar are naturally resistant to bugs, insects, and rotting. This makes them suitable for year-round outdoor use. They provide an organic, eco-friendly appearance that will look great with ranch, Pueblo, cottage, and bungalow style homes.
