The Secret to Quick and Easy Curb Appeal: Custom Planter Boxes

March 17, 2022

When we think about curb appeal, we often think of repainting the front porch, updating the door hardware, or adding vibrant lighting, but the best way to bring life to your entryway is with plants!

Plants make a big impact for relatively little cost and upkeep, and they can be replaced frequently for seasons and holidays.

And planter boxes make landscaping easy – no green thumb required! Simply fill the planter box with bright blooms, fragrant foliage, or even seasonal herbs. You’re guaranteed to be the envy of the neighborhood.

Where can I find custom metal planter boxes?

New planter boxes from Classic Custom Metal Works are hand-crafted from durable steel and then powder coated to withstand the elements.

You can work with the CCMW team to create your own design, or you can choose from one of several existing designs. Custom metal planter boxes come with or without custom embellishments and are offered in a variety of rich hues, so you can choose something that suits your exterior paint color, front door, and landscaping.

What should I plant in my metal planter boxes?

Be sure to choose plants based on seasonality, sunlight and how often you plan on watering them. This article by Southern Living details which plants to choose to achieve your desired style.

You might choose stunning blue hydrangeas to put in black planter boxes for a summery americana look. For spring, try white planter boxes overflowing with greenery for a fresh take on traditional.  The possibilities are endless!
