Window boxes with summer flowers, exterior wall decorating
Fairy-tale German houses with window boxes inspire beautiful outdoor home decorating with flowers. The enjoyment of container gardening and balcony decorating with summer flowers is indescribable. Even in a small apartment, you can have a window box garden filled in spring with pansies, tulips, and primroses, then petunias, geraniums, and fuchsias in summer. Chrysanthemums and decorative grasses look gorgeous in falls, while evergreens and branches with berries give color and create festive outdoor home decor with seasonal decorations in winter.
Boxes can rest on broad window ledges or firm porch railings and hang on walls. Container lengths must vary according to the window or balcony sizes, and box materials range from metal to wood, fiberglass, and plastic. You can make your window boxes with drainage holes in the bottom for water to pass through freely. Space half-inch holes six to eight inches apart when building your window boxes for your small garden.

Pick a color for your containers that does not detract from the blooming plants. Traditional dark green, black, brown, gray, and white are good choices unless you use a bright hue to add vibrant accents to your window or balcony decorating. Have in mind the colors of beautiful flowers you will grow. Light-colored boxes look lovely with deep hues of flowers, and it is hard to see white flowers against light surfaces and yellow and orange petunias against yellow and orange boxes.
