How to Decorate your Deck with Flower Boxes
Flower boxes and biodegradable coco planters offer a wonderful way to bring life and color onto a deck. They may be incorporated into the deck design very easily by hanging them over the railing. Alternatively flower boxes may be placed directly on the deck railing. Another option is to use freestanding flower boxes, coco baskets and plant stands.
If you are building a new deck or having one built, carefully consider how you can incorporate flower boxes into the design of the deck.
If you are planning to have deck railing, think about adding flower boxes to hang over the deck railing. If the deck is situated at a lower level you may want to use flower box stands to hold the flower boxes so that the plants are in line with the deck level.
There are many different types and styles of flower boxes that you can buy such as those lined with biodegradable coco, or plastic inserts. Flower box holders are another option.
Once you have your flower boxes in place, all that’s left is to fill them with soil and plant the flower boxes with pretty annuals, flowering shrubs, or various herbs.
