Window Boxes Save My Concrete Jungle

At last it’s spring time.  The time of year when I beautify my backyard, which is not so easy to do.  I live in a typical LA home with a very small yard, and my backyard is, well, not much of a yard at all — it’s all concrete.  The secret I have found to a colorful and alive-looking urban yard is flower boxes.   

I place them around the perimeter of the yard and fill them with an assortment of perennials.  I also plant window boxes on the window ledges of the garage and shed.  My favorite windowbox is just outside my bedroom window so I can see in from inside.

There are plenty of great ideas at on how to give new life, excitement and color to any garden, even my concrete jungle.
