    "The humble window boxes make a huge difference to the overall hardscape design. Properly arranged and placed, they are the missing piece to the picture perfect home puzzle. Still wondering what could be so great about a box. Well, for starters:

    Wooden boxes make even the dullest facades brim with life.

    Flower window boxes add extra colour, texture and dimension to your home.

    They complete the whole exterior design and make your house stand out.

    Petunias, geraniums, zinnias, nasturtiums, and begonias are good choices for main-theme flowers. Fill in with things like wandering jew, ivy, euonymus, heather, or vinca, which will cascade over the edge of the box. Impatiens do well in shady locations. More subtle choices include coleus, heliotrope, and salvia."
