Hang Window Box
Holding window box in place against cleats, drive four screws through back panel into each 2x4 block. Tip: If you wish, decorative brackets can be added under the window box for additional support and architectural detail.
Using a 3/8-inch drill bit, drill holes straight through bottom panel to allow for drainage. Drill one hole roughly every six square inches.
Fill Window Box
Add a 1- to 2-inch layer of gravel in the bottom of window box, to allow excess water to drain. Cover gravel with potting soil, filling box to about an inch from top. Add plants and thoroughly water.
