Dream Garden Must-Haves

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Since April showers bring May flowers, we are prepared for our gardens to burst forth with life in the next few weeks, and to celebrate that, here are some of our dream garden must-haves that go beyond flowers and vegetables.

A Multi-Pergola Walkway

The illusion that this garden goes on forever is one we can subscribe to.

A Water Feature (preferably a pond, ideally with a waterfall)

Being from Maine, we love the sound of ocean waves crashing on the shore and the
babbling of woodland brooks, so a water feature with a waterfall would be most appropriate.
Not to mention it would offer additional gardening potential for water-loving plants and flowers.

A Shed for Storage

Because gardening supplies deserve their own space, especially in a dream garden.
And, a cozy storage shed gives any garden a timeless storybook feel.

A Dining Space

For tea parties, morning coffee and afternoon garden soirees,
we would use teak furniture to create our garden dining room.

A Place to Sit and Rest

This lavender bench has so much character, and gives a pop of color
to a space with lots of greenery. But we also like the soft look of the
arch arbor-bench combo, which flawlessly blends in with surrounding
plant life (add an outdoor accent pillow for more comfort)!

Raised Beds (DIY beds are the best, but this stone one is exceptional)

Raised beds offer more opportunity for walkways and paths,
and provide beautiful architectural value in addition to functionality.

Garden Month Idea Board

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

April is Garden Month, which in Maine means snow is less likely to fall than it is in March (we’re expecting a few inches this weekend!). To celebrate the month of the garden, we’ve created an idea board featuring some decorative decor and functional accents for complementing your beautiful flowers and plants. Take a look below, and let us know what you’re adding to your garden this year.

Must Have Garden Accents Under $40

Monday, April 25th, 2016

The final week of April has us thinking even more about green lawns and blooming gardens, so we had to incorporate garden accents and outdoor decor into this week’s must have list. These are all under $40, so you can stick within your gardening budget while creating a charming look among vegetables and colorful flowers.

Herb Markers

Northern Cardinal Indoor/Outdoor Thermometer

For an herb garden, our Herb Markers make it simple to identify which plants are growing where, and the engraved details offer an antiqued look that decorates your garden in primitive outdoor charm. With eleven available markers, none of your herbs have to go without these durable aluminum accents.

Bird Twine HolderWelcome Engraved Stonea

Complement your outdoor spaces and even any backyard bird visitors with the tin Northern Cardinal Indoor/Outdoor Thermometer. Always know the outdoor temperature and enhance the style of your home’s exterior while adding appealing imagery to your lovely flower garden.

When a new garden is being prepared, don’t go without our Bird Twine Holder for ensuring your rows are straight and that your garden is decorated even before the plants begin to sprout. The antiqued cast metal is perfect for a rustic outdoor look, and the twine is included for immediate use.

Moose and Sailboat BracketsOur Welcome Engraved Garden Stone also offers a rustic look. A simple accent like this offers such natural style that it’s as if the stone was in your garden all along; it is made in the USA and weatherproofed to last season after season.

For a hanging plant or an outdoor lantern, our Maine made steel brackets feature picturesque silhouettes of animals and coastal symbols (like the Moose and Sailboat) that coordinate with lakeside, woodland, country or coastal homes and enhance the personal flair of gardens and backyards.
