It is good if you have a deck in your backyard. However, do you think that is enough to make a beautiful outdoor living space? It must have felt something is missing. How about adding a flower box on it? Maybe there are still many people who have not thought about it, but look at the following pictures of the inviting decks with the flower boxes! They look more alive, gorgeous and offers a soft foliage, nice fragrance, and enchanting colors which guarantee you will be more comfortable to relax there.
The first thing you should think about is where you will put it. This will affect what flower boxes you should choose. From the distance, the most visible part of the deck is the railing. That is why many homeowners choose such spot to add the flower box. In which case, you have two main options that are the removable flower boxes or the permanent one attached to the railing and become a single unit. You will find the first option in two styles namely rest in brackets mounted on railings or sit on top of the railing. The latter is available in the sliding design so that you can change it based on your wishes. It is good to create different angles. Meanwhile, the deck flower boxes that rest in brackets on railing can be found in different types. As presented below, they are available in long rectangular wooden, and the white planter holders. You can find the mounting hardware or brackets for the deck flower boxes in the gardening stores.
Well, not all decks have the railing. In this case, the owner usually uses a long bench instead of the railing. One of the inspirational pictures below shows the chic small deck with u shaped built in bench with the flower box, a cozy outdoor swing under the wooden pergola. Personally, I love this concept that is inviting and cozy to relax on it.
You will see another nice picture presented the large flower box in the center of the deck. It can accommodate for various flowers and plants. It is the same as the container garden. Did you know if the type of gardening has more benefits than you plant flowers and plants on the ground? One of the greatest advantages that you will be easy in taking care of the plant to get away from weeds, shrubs, and pests. It is perfect for those of you who want a beautiful garden without having to waste time to take care of it intensively.
The deck flower boxes come in several materials such as fiberglass, wood, metal, and resin in a diverse variety of sizes including widths and lengths. You can find them in straights, corner, and tiered shapes. If you wish to put it in a corner, consider the latter option such as the square wood tiered flower boxes that are perfect for decorating the corner deck. Before you are sure will pick one option, make sure if it is suitable for your deck. If for the railing, make sure it is strong to accommodate the weight of both box and flower.
