Window boxes can be spectacular in the winter.   Take a trip to Québec City during the winter carnival to see some spectacular examples.   They use branches, lights, figurines, and little things you may not have thought of.  Add a sprinkling of snow and they become breathtaking.

Window boxes add charm to any home, cottage, or apartment.  Is your home for sale? Window boxes full of flowers will dress it up, make it look loved and lived in, and divert the eye away from imperfections.

This photo was sent to us by a client of ours in Boothbay. His seaside cottage is covered with some of the most beautiful window boxes we've ever seen.   He designed an ingenious watering method which consists of a series of clear plastic tubes and a timer.  He even waters the gardens around the cottage using this system

Window boxes are beautiful in all seasons.  See the gallery for ideas and photos of window boxes.

Christopher Robinson, owner of Daggett Builders, Inc grew up in Switzerland where window boxes and beautiful shutters are the pride of every village.  The Swiss encourage people to make their homes attractive via contests and property tax incentives.
