Spring 2017...Get Ready, Get Set, Plant!

Spring 2017 is officially here.  

We are so ready to get to planting and start seeing the many vibrant colors or spring! Many of your local garden centers and greenhouses will be either opening back up for those who are seasonal, and those year rounders will be stocking up.  You'll want to determine a list of all the supplies you'll need so when you start planting, you have everything you need. 

Some helpful hints to remember when you visit your local greenhouse are to know your climate to pick the most appropriate plants and flowers.

Happy Spring 2016! What's your Box Garden Plan?

SPRING 2016  

SPRING is almost here. Easter is early this year  on 3/27. Who is out cleaning up the yard, raking and digging out from a mild winter? It's time to start thinking about your spring window box gardens. Will you do seasonal greens and flowers or will you incorporate some vegetables, too? How about a nice Easter box garden with baskets, bright colored eggs and pale flowers? Hopefully you've already purchased or ordered your Cape Cod Custom Flower Boxes so you don't have to deal with the monotonous project of repairing, sanding and painting those rotten old wooden ones.  All you have to do is plant and enjoy! For those of you, like myself, who run out of ideas, Pinterest has a vast array of photos and fantastic ideas for holiday and seasonal box gardens to really make your home stand out. Of course, your Cape Cod Custom Flower Boxes will already be doing that for you! Think Spring! Happy planting!

Cape Cod Custom Flower Boxes - How Will Your Home Stand Out This Season?

Have you made your seasonal decorating plans yet? Look at your home.  Dress up that deck.  Add color and vibrance to your railings. Make those dormers stand out flawlessly and easily.  Tie in your home's architectural elements to your boxes - examples, shutters, trim and mouldings, color, and stonework.  Cape Cod Custom Flower Boxes creates custom boxes to do just that for you.  Does your home boast a  large window?  Big windows beg for bold, dramatic boxes with texture and demension.  Keep your boxes full and vibrant!  Not one for the flowers? Create a seasonal harvest box!  You have endless possibilities!

Windox Boxes & Planters Make your Home Inviting!

Window Boxes provide character and softness to simple, symmetrical homefronts.

Planters emphasize and accentuate entryways making them more
prominent and inviting to your guests.
Remember, there are many great options for fall.  There was a great article in yesterday's Sunday Cape Cod Times for fall planting with some great recommendations that are great for planters and boxes as well as gardens and beds. 

Mirror Your Home's Color Scheme When Planting Boxes

When selecting flowers for your boxes, mirror your home's color scheme as well as any surrounding gardens to obtain the best result. Be sure to combine flowers/plants that have the same light/shade and watering requirements.

Change Your Boxes & Planters Seasonally

Most flower boxes and planters need to be replanted as seasons begin and end. There are several options for fall and winter, Mums, evergreens, holly and berries can adorn your boxes throughout the colder seasons. It's always best to refer to your local garden center for advice and best selections.

Our PVC flower boxes and planters can stay up all year through any weather, without weathering!

More New Designs!

MORE new designs!!!!  Introducing ANCHOR and SAILBOAT!  Pictures of all new routered design series can be seen on our "Custom & More" page.  Pricing will be the same as the Starfish series.   We are working on a few more designs and will post as soon as they are complete! 
NoteAll of our routered designs are NOT from any standard stencil.  We hand-draw them. We then create permanent templates from our drawings.  These are all uniquely our own, custom designs

NEW Nautical Box Designs!!!! =))

We are very excited to announce that new designs are coming.  Similar to the Starfish boxes, we are adding "Seashells", "Oars" and "Adirondack" to our designs.  Pictures to come soon!  Our plan with these is that you can have your box(es) with all panels the same, or you can have a nautical themed box with each side panel being a different design (starfish, seashell, oars, adirondack chair) - at no charge.  =)     Also, we are working on a sailboat to come in the future.
