The latest conveniences mix with traces of Louisiana's heritage at this fabulous Country French retreat.
As alternatives to window boxes, the landscape architects designed wooden plant shelves. The bracketed supports attach to the house at the base of the windowsills. To anchor the terra-cotta pots and allow for drainage, pieces of 1-inch-diameter pipe are attached with epoxy into holes cut in the wood. Then the drainage holes in the bottom of the pots are set onto the pipes.
