1) Consider a Hamptons PVC planter box  by your front door

A planter box is almost considered a Hamptons home must have to complete the look of a coastal designed home and to create a great first impression before you even open the front door. We have now sourced our boxes with a PVC construct so that it can be enjoyed in the full outdoors. In contrast to the timber boxes, these PVC planters require less care and are largely weather resistant. Your guests will love the clean simple tongue and groove lines contrasted with a pop of greenery outside of your doors. 

For those lucky enough for a large deck you may even consider adding poly timber Adirondack chairs. These chairs not only look amazing but will be the perfect spot to sit and relax.
