Custom Architectural Design builds handcrafted cedar planter boxes and window planters in Chicago and the surrounding Chicagoland area.  Each of our premium cedar planters is constructed from the finest materials and is uniquely designed to combine artistic style and long-lasting function.  Our handcrafted cedar planters can be mounted under windows or can be set on the ground to adorn patios, decks, balconies, porches, steps or walkways.  Each piece is a work of art and creates a visually rich base for holding flowers, herbs, plants, bushes and trees.

Premium Cedar Planter Boxes

All of our wood planters are made from the finest materials available, including cedar wood, premium hardware and finishes that are as durable as they are attractive.  In addition to the quality materials that are used to build each planter, we also offer the option of adding decorative hardware that creates a truly distinct look.  For example, we can enhance planters and create a one-of-a-kind appearance with the addition of rustic clavos, as well as other types of distinctive premium hardware that is imported from around the world.

Cedar Window Planter Boxes

For homeowners and business owners interested in enhancing the look of their exterior windows, we offer premium cedar window planter boxes that can be built to match our exterior cedar shutters.  Each wood window planter is designed to be 3” – 6” wider than the window on each side in order to make the planters architecturally correct.  All cedar window boxes are crafted with premium finishes and hardware, as well as proper drainage, creating a planter that is as durable as it is beautiful.  We also design and create cedar corbels, which are beautiful architectural brackets that attach and support the planter boxes to the exterior façade.  Our premium cedar window planter boxes and corbels are built to last.

Standalone Cedar Planter Boxes

We also offer a wide selection of standalone cedar planters in a variety of sizes and styles that can be used virtually anywhere.  Each of our traditional planter boxes is designed and created with the same attention to detail and commitment to quality as our exterior shutters and window boxes.  These planter boxes can be placed directly on the ground or can be used on patios, decks, porches, balconies, steps and walkways.  The unique designs and styles we offer create a visually appealing planter that is as much a piece of artwork as it is a functional container.  From small cedar planters that can house an array of colorful flowers on the balcony of a townhome to larger wood planter boxes that can hold palm trees or may extend for many feet in length, each of our planter boxes offers quality design and craftsmanship that is unsurpassed.
