Our first entry of 2007! Name: Art and Chel Location: Chicago, IL We have a little gift in the mail to you from Ecoforms and SelectSeeds.com to help make your garden grow. Enjoy! Art and Chel not only submitted a link to some cool flowerbox photos, they also cut out the award and have it on display. Nice work - you guys deserve it! Take a closer look at their flowerboxes after the jump...
In Art's words: This is just the start of our little balcony garden. We live on the near west side of Chicago. These little boxes are special because they symbolize the beginning of a new chapter in our lives. We had the good fortune of being able to purchase our own condo. Now we are shaping the condo up with our own creativity and have ambitious plans to give the modest balcony some life. Right now, the boxes have some decorative flowers and four of our favorite herbs. They are babies right right now but I would love to look back at this picture when we have a thoroughly greenified balcony! Art also tackled making an upside-down tomato planter right outside their balcony door. In a few months this will be full and looking fantastic.
low balcony planters and great sun exposure: a good setup for herbs!
Art and Chel's planter setup is cheery, easy to maintain, and looks well-constructed. If anyone wants a peek at the hard work they are putting into their new home, follow the link. It looks like their new chapter is off to a great start. If you would like to submit your own flowerbox project follow this link to get the complete submission details and award image.
