Monday Must-Haves: Late Summer Garden

Monday, August 6th, 2018

Acorn Basket Twine HolderSoon we’ll be bundling up and spending more time inside as the days get cooler, shorter, and closer to winter. But we still have a few more weeks left of summer, so spend them making up your late summer garden with the following must-have home accents.

Dragonfly Nature Bracket

Plot out your final flower beds and last-minute veggies with the Acorn Basket Twine Holder. The roll of biodegradable twine seen here is included, so start plotting now!

For plants already in pots or climbing varieties needing some support, the Flower Pot Leaf Garden Trellis can help prolong the life of your vegetation. Attach the Dragonfly Nature Bracket to the side of a garden shed, garage or your home and display a hanging pot of geraniums or other outdoor-tolerant flower.

While the above accessories are a little more summer specific, the Garden Votive Sparkle Cones and Gardener’s Boot and Utility Shelf can be utilized all year long. The former can illuminate your summer nights, fall evenings and even add more magic to winter days. The latter is ideal for storing your gardening supplies – in season or out of season – but could also be used as a furniture piece in a bedroom, mudroom or kitchen.

A rubber boot tray can do more than hold dirty boots and shoes. Use it in your car when transporting plants to prevent dirt and leaves from making a mess, or use it under a pet’s food and water dishes to prevent the contents from spilling onto your floors.
