HGTV's Fixer Upper transformed this once awkward atrium into an open-air herb garden with wooden window boxes and planters. Located right off the kitchen, the courtyard is the perfect place to entertain guests around a rustic table.
This ranch home combines a variety of building materials to create an adorable cottage look. The brick siding, cedar shakes, slate patio tiles and stone planters mix beautifully with the swirled topiaries, pine-needle mulch and flowering window boxes.
French doors topped with a curved transom window and framed with antiqued shutters offer delightful curb appeal to this country manor-style home in Atlanta, Georgia. Boxwoods in planters and window flower boxes add small pops of color against the whitewashed brick facade.
The Matsumotos wanted an outdoor dining area on a covered porch. The tin ceiling was made from the repurposed metal roof from the home's original structure. A hanging planter was fashioned from an old wooden box salvaged from inside the old house.
Have a sheet of glass cut at the home improvement store into four pieces, each measuring 8” tall and slightly less than the length of each side of your planter. The finished box will need to rest on top of the lip of your planter. Alternatively, if the size works, you can use already cut glass from dollar store frames.
For a wild and free holiday touch to your porch, try potting camellia into medium or tall box planters, then adding a layer of rich green around the base with peat moss. The pinkish red tones of the flowers will add a romantic vibe to your holiday setup.
