Flower Window Boxes - Reviews and Testimonials

We are thrilled with our two new custom-length Daisy window flower boxes. They are about 7 feet long, each, going under two 6 foot front windows that have faux “shutters”. We have been very happy and impressed with the very prompt replies to all our questions and requests for information from the owner of this company, Matt. We congratulate him on an excellent, well-made, sturdy, and beautiful product. We thank him for competent, timely, and very helpful information and advice about the window boxes. - Mary Ellen Hennig

My window boxes just arrived and I wanted to let you know how fabulous I think they are!! They look so great and I can’t wait to get them installed and filled. I’m impressed how well they’re constructed and the material used. I have had cedar boxes in the past that I painted and considered buying cedar again because of cost, but I’m glad I went ahead and ordered your product. I’m looking forward to them looking this great year after year without having to take them down in the cold weather (and filling them for Christmas!) or repaint them again and again. Window boxes aren’t a big thing where I live in Iowa so not many garden stores have much of a selection. I always say you can live anywhere now and get anything you want because of the internet and FedEx/UPS! - Paula Eveleigh

I received the flower boxes yesterday and unwrapped them and put them up today. They look great. They are beautiful. I will definitely recommend you to others. Thanks, Sonia

I wanted to let you know that I received my Charleston window box today and it is absolutely beautiful. A truly fine product! Joanne

Matt - THANK YOU so much for your help getting the window box I ordered to our island in Maine in time to be planted this Memorial Day Weekend. It is really fantastic .... I've attached a few photos. Can't wait to order more and pass the word along to all my friends. Thanks again. Susan Spaulding

My family really likes the windowbox I purchased from you. Keep up the good work. John Bielefeld

We love them. The style fits our house perfectly. They painted up better than wood and mounted with ease. Paul and Penny Blake*** I absolutely LOVE our flower boxes and here are a few pics! - Dawn Feldman *** Matt, we got the window box up and just love it! Some of my neighbors have asked about it so you may be getting a few inquiries. Thanks for everything! - Susan Grovert

Great! Thank-you very much!! It has been a pleasure working with Flower Window Boxes. We have a new project starting with similar specifics so I'm sure I'll be in touch again next Spring! - Lara R.

Hi Shelby, It's nice to hear from you. Yes, we are extremely happy with our flower box. I would be happy to send photos. To show more of the box itself, I will send you a "before" photo when the flowers were just planted; and also a "current" picture that shows how amazingly well the self-watering system has worked in that the flowers are thriving to the point that you almost can't see the box! We painted the box to match our front door, and we continually get compliments from our neighbors and friends of how well it all works with our house. I gave passed on you website to a few of them, hopefully you see some more business from Birmingham! All the best, - Bruce

The boxes continue to provide daily pleasure to myself and all who walk by. I have given your name out frequently because I am asked where I got them from. I think next year I will get two longer ones to fill out the front and move these two to the side rails. Happy Fourth of July, - Rich C.

Hi Matthew, I was very pleased with my flowerboxes. They took paint well so we matched them to the house. In particular I like the reservoir system—it allows me to go a day or even three between waterings, so that even in hot weather I don’t have to enlist my neighbors’ help with watering when I’m gone. We installed the boxes in an existing block wall. I only wish I’d done a better job with the actual flowers this year—maybe next year I’ll send you another pic! Sincerely, - Mary Brewster

“We at Gerber Homes – were very pleased with the quality of the decorative cedar brackets that we ordered for our job. I was concerned ordering such a product online – but the online staff answered all questions and gave me pricing in a quick and efficient manner. We will definitely be ordering from them again.” - Victoria Martin, Purchasing Manager (Gerber Homes & Additions)

I debated for months on ordering these planters. I am so happy I did! Ordering was easy. Customer service was friendly, courteous & helpful. I was told the boxes would arrive in about 10 days & they did. One was a special order which would add another week. Once again, on time as I was told. They were packaged very well & easy to unpack despite the size. They have been a great addition to our summer patio enjoyment. - Kathy

In response to your below e-mail about my recent purchase of both shutters and flower boxes, I attached a few pictures of the finished project. I want to thank your team for their assistance with measuring for the correct sizes and appropriate styles. The material arrived in complete order including correct sizes, styles, and hardware. Also, everything arrived in great condition. I had a wonderful experience working with your company and look forward to reaching out for my next home improvement project. Warmest regards, Ronald Christy

Thanks for reaching out to me. I love, love, love my window boxes. I didn’t know what size I needed and called to get help the gentlemen that helped me was excellent. I wish everyone made products like yours. My son installed them. I have 2 I purchased and will send a better picture tomorrow. I would love a 10% coupon. I would love for my windows to be on your website. Let me send you a better pic tomorrow. I am your cheerleader anytime!!! - Janie Jo Hudson

Hi Matt, Here is a photo of the lovely flower box I ordered this spring. I had it custom sized to fit a specific area of our home and I love it. The quality of the material and the craftsmanship is superb. I am confident it will withstand the cold winters we get up here in the Northeast and look forward to no maintenance. I would not hesitate to place another order! Thanks again, Sue*** I am forwarding this photo of one of my new window boxes. They are absolutely beautiful and dress up my house perfectly. Thank you for the prompt delivery, they were well packaged and in perfect condition upon delivery. The quality is what I expected and they were cut to the exact specifications that I requested. Everyone was courteous and pleasant to deal with on the ohone. I will highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for ways to dress up their home. Thank you once again, - Lidia Brannon

Our window boxes were perfect, perfect! Beautiful. Everything about the experience was positive, from the time I called FlowerWindowBoxes.com--and got an incredibly helpful and live human on the line---to expert packaging, timely delivery: everything! - Magda

I would like to take a minute to let you know how very happy I am with your product. I had been searching the internet for the best quality and beauty I could find in a window box and came across your website. Your water system was definitely a plus! After contacting your staff and getting a quote, I decided to go for it and I was not disappointed.. They are beautiful as you can see! Thank you for making my windows look amazing!

I am very happy with the window boxes. They are well made, quality workmanship,and I am happy to know that these will not rot and need painting as the previous ones did that the builder put in. Love that these are made locally and yeah!! for made in America!!!

I absolutely LOVE! my flower boxes! They are exactly what I was looking for. The custom size I needed, hidden wheels, ready to paint,and self watering.(The hardest part of this whole thing, was deciding on the color.) They arrived exactly when Shelby said they would, which was two weeks from when I ordered. (And these were custom made!) They arrived on the pallet (see below) and were well packed, no damage what so ever. (Really good delivery company, by the way.) We wanted the self watering, as irrigation tube, would be a hassle and unslighlty. And it's working out really well, although I did have to fill them everyday when we had 100-107 degree heat for days on end! LOL! The wheels worked out great! I could easily move them , out of the intense sun, when needed. They move so easily, it makes cleaning the deck a breeze. These are exceptionally well made. And the price, including delivery was unbeatable. What a great product! Wonderful workmanship! You have an excellent company! Made here in the USA! It just doesn't get any better than this! Thank-you so very much! Best Regards, - Pam Gumpertz

We are delighted with your window boxes. As you can see they are beautiful, attach easily and best of all they work. We attached your watering system to our sprinkler with little hoses and put these in the boxes. We left for a month and the flowers are growing beautifully. We could not be happier. You have a high quality product which I think is the best in the market and it works. Thank you for your ingenuity, - Ellen Prelle

We are very pleased with the Charleston style window boxes that we purchased from your company. We had recently have rebuilt the front porch on our 1920 Cape Cod summer cottage and needed some window boxes to finish off the outside. I did have window boxes on the original porch but they were the third or forth set of wooden window boxes that were in need of paint and repair so I looked for a good alternative. Luckily I went online and found your company. We are more than pleased and have had dozens of compliments on them by neighbors and compIete strangers. I installed them myself with no problem at all. I will try to include a before and after flower photo for you to see. Thanks again for having these quality window boxes. - E.J. Cape Cod,Massachusetts

“Last month I was searching for a planter for a NYC walled garden and contacted FlowerWindowBoxes.com. They not only had a wide variety of options, they guided me to a solution that saved me money and worked perfectly. Delivery was timely and the planters are ideal for my city space. The folks at FlowerWindowBoxes.com could not have been more helpful and courteous.” - Jane Butler

I was extremely happy with the way you made our flower box to a custom size. The quality of your product and the installation instructions made this a very easy installation. I would be happy to recommend your company to anyone, in fact, I already have. Attached are 2 pictures of how we are using our flower box. Thanks again, - Jim Dowling

We are so pleased with the beauty and quality of our traditional style windowbox. The workmanship is perfect. I also want to thank you for the prompt service and your helpful employee when I called with questions. We couldn't be happier! An added plus was that we didn't have to assemble it! - Beth and Jack

We are very pleased with your product and have received many compliments. The order was filled promptly and received in good order. The mounting instructions were complete and easy to follow. We also ordered the watering tubes which have worked well during this hot summer we've even having in the northeast. We are happy we selected your product from the window boxes available and would highly recommend them to a friend. - J & B

We recently had the rail installed on our portico and I wasn't too pleased with the look of it. I thought it looked too industrial. A planter to the rescue! So I went on line and found you. I am really, really pleased with the box. It's good looking; it's very well made; it was well packed for shipping including every last piece, washer, screw that was needed. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend you to my friends. - Peggy

My window boxes are fantastic - I don't know how they could be any better. My neighbor refers to my home as a "gingerbread house" because of the way it is fixed up on the outside and it's the window boxes that make it outstanding. They are gushing red geraniums and draping white flowers. People in the neighborhood drive by just to look at them. Unfortunately, I do not know the technology to take pictures with my camera or phone and send them to you through email. I am about to turn 70 and just never cared about all this modern technology, but know that I am completely thrilled with the window boxes. - Karen

Hi Matthew - this is Rhonda Rossman ( the other half) and just want to say that we love our railing planter boxes! This our first ever experience with railing planters and we have acheived exactly the look and feel we were seeking. The self watering component is working well and the only question my husband had was why black deck hooks with white deck and white planters? We have been receiving lots of compliments from neighbors and passerbys. I chose to plant impatiens and ivy as on north side and it has worked out well. Thanks for providing us with this outstanding product. - Rhonda Rossman

Thanks for your note. We love the product. The craftsmanship is excellent and they were delivered ahead of schedule. I will forward some photos with flowers in the planter boxes. Kudos to you and your team! Regards, - Jim

Would gladly share pics of the flower boxes I purchased from you for a client.! They were very well made and your sales rep did an excellent job of helping me get the exact fit for this particular site. Am delighted to recommend your company and thank you and your employees for excellent service and product quality. - Kathy Fricker

Thank you! Again, I am a very happy customer thanks to your product. I am a Master Gardener and I plant containers for a handful of friends and their businesses. Please feel free to post any of the photos. I wish I had photos of the boxes when I had 3 1/2 foot spruce tips, pinecones and lights last winter! They were absolutely beautiful. I can send them this winter if you needed a variety of seasons. Hats off to your staff! - Meredith

I absolutely love my window boxes and they came timely! I've received so many compliments! I want to buy them for my large front window however I can't afford right now. They make my house look warm and cozy! I'm sooo very happy I purchased them from you! They were also easy to install. - Lauren

Loved the finished product, it just the finishing touch I was looking for on our new home. Painting this material was so easy and my husband thought they were easy to install and great quality. I would highly recommend. - Debbie M.

The flower boxes are great!! They are so well made and fit perfectly. I painted them to match our deck trim. The auto waterer system works incredibly well. Here is a pic of them. We live in Philly and the deck is on the 2nd floor. It gives us privacy from the street. We love them! Thanks, - Robin Zaret

We LOVE our window boxes. We just built a new home and moved in last November. We moved within the same community and had seen your boxes on a home in our old neighborhood. We stopped by his home and asked where he had gotten them and found you. It was one of the first things we purchased for our new home even though we couldn’t put them up until spring due to the fact that we live in Denver. Planting season doesn’t’ arrive until Mother’s Day here. These are located on the porch on the second floor. We were able to match the paint to the rails by contacting the company that made them and they gave us a paint sample. You are welcome to use any of the pictures but would like to remain anonymous. The gentleman who took our order was wonderful. He was extremely professional and answered all my questions. We received the boxes in perfect condition and found them easy to assemble and install. We live in a vibrant community with lots of people walking. We are often asked where we got the boxes and are thrilled to pass along the information. Many thanks for making such a great product. I am looking forward to many years of use. - Jeffrey W.

My experience was excellent! Shelby took care of everything promptly and professionally. He was even able to expedite my order in less than the expected lead time. The client used the brackets to finish off their pergola and were more than pleased. Packaging was perfect and material arrived in A1 condition. I appreciate your follow up and will be using you folks for all my future needs. Sincerely, - Travis Laing, Beatty Lumber Company

I am so grateful I made the decision to purchase your window boxes. They were easy to install, included all the hardware we needed and have proven to be everything promised. My flowers have flourished even in the severe heat we have recently experienced. Please feel free to use my recommendation of your product. Its great! Also, please give kudos to the AMERICAN workers who can be justly proud of their workmanship. I will text pictures to you. Sincerely, - Brenda Swinford

I was extremely pleased from beginning to end with the custom deck rail boxes I ordered. The sales team made a fairly complicated order extremely easy. Everything arrived on time, packaged perfectly, and they fit like a glove. I was very pleased with the overall construction of the boxes, the ease of painting them and their installation. Their durability has stood up to the test with our extreme Minnesota weather conditions, from 100+ degrees in the summer on our hot deck with a southern exposure to -30 degrees and 60 mph winds in the winter. I would definitely recommend your product. Thank you! - Meredith K.

Enclosed please find several photos of the boxes. As you can see, two are on our patio railings and one sits atop a wall. They are of the highest quality and workmanship. Our immediate neighbors have told us how much they love looking at our patio. This is a fairly large upscale condominium community and many units have flower boxes on their patios. Some boxes are beautiful, some are pedestrian...none approach what you've created for us. Well done. Thanks, - George di Cristina

Good evening Matthew..Thanks so much for your personal follow up on my recent purchase of your window boxes...let me think how best to say this..oh yeah, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them. I found their craftsmanship to be superb. They were assembled so perfectly you would think they were cut with a laser. Very top grade for the money or any money for that matter. I did have to get a carpenter to help assist with the hanging but wanted to be sure I found the studs. I attached some pictures as you can see they have added much needed arcitecural interest to a boring side of my house. Wish my flowers were a little further along but I got a late start and we have had a real hot spell. Please share my enthusiasm with your team and thank them for such a beautiful product. - Cheryl

I'm very happy with my new window box. As you can see from the attached photos, this is our narrow driveway/side yard. Although I have a lovely back garden, this awkward driveway was ugly and allowed us no view from our bedroom window. Now we have lovely, dancing greenery in a spot where I thought nothing would prosper. The self watering mechanism has kept these potato vines and vinca thriving throughout a hot summer and in full sun. I think the box is very well constructed and was happy with its ease of installation. I think your email proves that you are a very caring and responsible company. I hope these photos are useful to you. Please tell your workers that I very much enjoy the fruits of their labor. - Linda

Love my flower boxes!! I recommended you folks to friends who also ordered a custom box. I have several photos but my plants have taken over the boxes! I keep cutting them back but they must like where they live! I did not think you would want a photo that did not show much of the flower box. I am looking forward to keeping my flower boxes filled with the different seasons. - Joyce C.

I’m very happy with the planters I bought from your company. I searched the internet fairly extensively for planters of these shapes and dimensions and found no others that were reasonably priced. In fact, I found no others at all that met my needs so well. The fact that I could customize my order made this an even more unique product. - David Burke

Matthew, product is great. I have a six foot box on the front of the house and the recent order was for 2 boxes for a shed I just built in my backyard. I will send the pics although I haven't planted any flowers in them yet just because I just finished last week. Thanks for a great product and anything I could do to help please let me know. - Kristopher K.

I recently purchased three custom sized tapered window boxes with brackets. We're thrilled with them. Customer service was so helpful and courteous with helping us choose the right sizes. The videos available on your website were also very helpful during installation. The window boxes were shipped promptly and the packaging for shipping was more than adequate to protect them. Love the fact that they arrived fully assembled. I really can't say enough about the quality of your product. The brackets also add a nice finishing touch. We live in a new 55+ community and quite a few of our neighbors have asked where we bought them. I have referred them to your website. Please feel free to use this review as well as the pictures enclosed. - Lynn from Londonderry, NH

Thanks for your email. I love my window box! I’ve included 3 pictures, one from the day we first installed it and planted flowers. The next two pictures show it over the course of the summer. I just took the third picture last week. As you can see we painted it, which was very easy and so was installing it. It looks beautiful, I can’t keep my eyes off of it! We also got the watering system, and really like that too. I feel like it takes the unknown away from how frequently we should water. Just filling up the pipes is so easy, and I don’t need to worry about over or under watering it, or if we are gone for a few days. I’m also very happy that we have the PVC product, everyone that sees it thinks it is wood, but I’m very happy not to worry about rotting, etc. Thanks so much! - Deborah
