What Are Garden Windows?
A garden window is a type of window that protrudes from the exterior wall of a home and typically has shelves for plants or knick-knacks. Garden windows are often found in kitchens, as they provide extra sunlight and space for plants. These windows can be opened for ventilation and are typically larger than a standard window. They are generally made of wood or vinyl, and many can be painted to match the exterior of the home.
If you're considering a garden window, it's important to understand exactly what characteristics make it different from similar windows such as bay windows. Though similar in that they both protrude from your structure to the discerning eye, there are differences in both form and function.
Typically, garden windows come out of the wall at a 90-degree angle, whereas bay windows usually have a 25 to a 45-degree angle. Garden windows also use casement windows for end vents to provide better views.
Another characteristic specific to garden windows is that they have a pane of glass on the top that behaves as a see-through roof to allow more light in. Finally, garden windows have a shelf for plants where you can showcase your favorites.
The Purpose of Garden Windows
As the name implies, a garden window is a type of window designed to bring in natural beautiful light for your plants. Garden windows require careful planning in design, materials, and construction with exact specifications.
You want to make sure you've selected the right place for your garden window to capture an abundance of light, as well as consider an appropriate size for the plants you want to showcase, the right materials, and precise construction.
Garden windows typically have a distinctive design to ensure that necessary features come together and create the perfect window for your space and plants.

The Benefits of Garden Windows
Garden windows are not just pretty-looking additions to your home's curb appeal. They also come with the following benefits:
Let More Natural Light In
Adding a garden window will bring in lots of light. This is because they have more glass surface area. The extra light is great for plants, as it helps them grow better.
More natural light is a good thing especially in the winter when sunlight is at a premium. Any room will become more inviting with additional light. Furthermore, garden windows can make a small room feel larger. Because they protrude outwards, they create the illusion of more space.
Create Your Indoor Greenhouse
When you need a warm sunny place to plant seeds in early spring, garden windows are your friends. This type of window will provide plenty of extra space to give sprouts and baby seedlings a protected home to soak up sunlight and warmth.
Your garden windows create the perfect space for fresh herb gardens in your own kitchen and prevent heat loss. A garden window with artfully arranged pots of fresh herbs looks and feels wonderfully uplifting. The plants help fragrance and purify the room's air. They are also readily available to enhance your culinary adventures.
Expand Your Panoramic View
Whether you are looking forward to watching the cardinals at the birdfeeder or keeping an eye on your children as they run around the yard, it's much easier to do with a larger field of vision.
Instead of only being able to look straight out as you do with a standard window, a garden window expands upon that, making it the perfect solution for increasing your field of vision.

Should I Change My Garden Windows?
Do you notice signs of wear and tear? Have your windows started to show their age and allow heat transfer? We live in an era where a window's scope lays beyond the usual keeping the rain and cold outside. We deliver only energy-efficient garden windows that protect your plants and keep heat transmission to a minimum! Whether you choose a classic window style, hung windows, or patio windows, you can rest assured that all are energy-efficient custom windows.
From our extensive experience, we can tell you that you should consider replacement garden windows or at least have a garden window expert check your windows if you notice:
- Significant condensation within the glass panes
- Drafts coming from the window
- Mold or blistered paint around the window
- Warped frame that makes it difficult to open or close the window
- The hardware isn't working correctly
- The window clatters or clanks while opening
If you notice at least one of these signs, your garden or greenhouse window has lost its ability to provide maximum energy efficiency performance. In other words, you're throwing money out the window because the window can no longer provide proper isolation and keep your family safe. It's time for replacement windows!

What People Are Saying
We just installed all new windows at our house and we love them! Before we made our decision we went to the manufacturer’s plant to see how the windows are made. We were concerned at first because Russ’s price was more than half of his competitors quoted price. After our tour we were very comfortable with our decision. Installation day was quick and painless. Our house was left in great condition. I highly recommend this company!
Prompt, courteous, and knowledgeable. Windows will be installed after they are manufactured. Update: couldn't have gone better. The windows are very high quality and the guys that installed them did a great job. They removed and replaced four windows in under two hours, and the finished job looks very good, both inside and out. We will be having them back to install additional windows once we get some unrelated work performed by other contractors.
We just decided to start this project so it has not been started yet but we were really impressed by Russ so far. Update our windows are done and installed. We were shocked they had our project completed so quick and it turned out great. What a great experience we had. 5 stars? Would have given 8 easily.
