Love to admire gorgeous railing and window planters teeming with botanicals? You’re not the only one! It’s this appreciation for the best window boxes and flower arrangements that makes Hooks & Lattice so proud to sponsor the nationwide Window Box Contest each year.
Today, we congratulate the 2013 contest winners across four categories. Additionally, to all entrants, we warmly thank you for participating. Each contestant serves to grow our online community of passionate container gardeners. And it’s our belief that the more beauty and inspiration there is to go around, the better.
Now, the moment we’ve all been waiting for – it’s time to announce the victors!
Winner #1 – Window Planters On A Wall
Our first category was ripe with competition last year. But in the end, Stella Anastasia’s “Seeing Red” arrangement proved simply irresistible. Tapered Copper Window Boxes provide the ideal contrast against bright white siding. And the whole presentation pops beneath a noteworthy red roof.
Winner # 2 – Railing Planters Category
And the prize goes to: “A Cheerful Hello” by Joe McGarvey. This green thumb knew what he was doing with texture and color, layering in dimensional vine and floral combos. And making the whole display possible is two affordable railing planter boxes – beautiful and budget friendly. Couldn’t be any better if we’d dreamt it.
Winner #3 – Most Creative Window Box
Our winner is “Marvelous Mandevilla” submitted by Joanne Ahern. Can you believe this was once an unremarkable greenhouse riddled with exposed valves and eyesores? Joanne really outdid herself using a pair of window planters and cleverly placed mirrors to finish her space off in gorgeous fashion.
Winner #4 – Before & After
Sweet, sweet curb appeal is the real winner in this category. Along with contestant Stefanie Meyers and her “Summer of Abundant Colors” entry. Talk about a transformation! This clever homeowner used our Presidential Vinyl Window Boxes in red to match her front door. And by adding flower arrangements for shade she capitalized on a tricky environment, resulting in a spotlight on her light grey home’s exterior.
