My wife wants me to build a flower box for underneath our big bay window. Just wondering what would the best lumber to use. It is a rather long window at just over 10 feet long, so i figure I would need at least three supports. Anyone have any ideas?
Sorry if its somewhat vague.

Cedar or white oak will last a while. Local big box stores sell cedar. Also, consider plastic planters placed into the wooden window boxes. A little less evaporation. Buy the plastic planters and build your wooden window box to hold/hide them. In that case you could just use pine or whatever as long as it was painted.

Cedar would be great but nice treated lumber would last two. Or build the boxes with concrete block or other such material and anchor with rebar.
