Garden Window Extensions For Your Denver Home

Denver, Colorado is not a place that lacks for sunshine that is for sure. With over 300 days a year of unadulterated sun, it is no wonder why people are flocking here from all over the country to take advantage of the sun. While it would seem logical with so much sunshine that gardening here would be a breeze, that could not be further from the truth. While some crops grow great here, often times, with things like crazy bipolar weather, devastating hail storms and days on end without water, all the garden friendly sun seems to go to waste when it comes to growing some of the more delicate plants and herbs. However, there is a simple, inexpensive way for avid gardens to cultivate those wonderful, but less-hardy veggies and herbs in their home and in the sunlight but out of the sometimes unwelcoming Colorado elements and that is by having a garden window extension installed on windows in their home.

What Are Garden Window Extensions?

A garden window is an unobtrusive box window that extends out from the house with an interior shelf for plants and herbs. The vents on the side provide the ventilation plants need to breathe and thrive. Since the window extends beyond the house, it won’t take up space inside and since it is completely covered with glass, the delicate plants within are 100% protected from the elements but still get plenty of suns–especially if you put it on a south or southwestern facing side of your home. Making sure the plants stay watered is a breeze too since the window is open on the interior facing side. Best of all, the garden window provides a greenhouse type environment which opens up the gardening season to the entire year.
