Plants are magnificent addition to beautify our home. Their unique characteristics as decors that grow could brighten your day and paint a smile on your face. Plants are little wonders that help relieve stress. They have this serenity that makes people happy, calm and optimistic. Plants also act as noise absorbers and promote natural healing for sick people specially those who are admitted in the hospital. As a whole, indoor plants can benefit us not only for their natural artistry but also for the many useful health benefits it can give.
If you have a large window in your room, imagine a bunch of healthy, colorful and dancing flowering plants greeting you every morning as you wake up. The simple but necessary task of taking care of indoor plants also helps us get some exercise, unwind and aids managing anxiety. If you are excited to have your plants sit right by the window, all you need are a few window boxes and some hanging baskets. These decorative planters are fabulous for flowers and fragrant herbs to grow and decorate your house this summer. Window boxes and hanging baskets come in different style, color and materials. Each type has its own pros and cons but more importantly buyers will be able to choose from a wide variety of window boxes and hanging baskets to compliment the color and look of their homes.
Window boxes and hanging baskets come in tapered iron, aluminum, vinyl, fiberglass, and classic wood. Whether what type, color or style of window boxes or hanging baskets you decide to buy, you should first consider that the plants you choose to grow will have enough light. Avoid placing hanging baskets on shaded areas of the house as well as putting window boxes on spots which have too much exposure to the sun.
Pots are not exactly like gardens however, gardening tools are also handy to cultivate the soil, adding manure and mulch, and watering. Important gardening tools include a spade, some seed packets, and some gloves. But no worries, maintaining window boxes and hanging baskets only require a few minutes with the help of gardening tools and other materials necessary for taking care of window plants.
Lastly, try to combine the plants you grow like a bunch of flowering plants and some vines or herbs for contrast. If live plants are too complicated to keep watered, consider outdoor rated artificial flowers to provide the curb appeal you’ll be proud of.
If you love cooking, you can actually grow oregano, basil, parsley, lemon grass and rosemary. The aroma of these herb plants is very attractive during the summer and the candy color of flowering plants will light up the entire house.
