Thursday’s Theme: The Garden Shed of Our Dreams (a wishlist)

Thursday, April 4th, 2019

In March we talked about the components of our dream garden – a water feature, both flowers and vegetables, among other things – so it only seems right to create a wishlist for our dream garden shed.

Exterior

First thing’s first – the outside. A storm door or screen door would be great on our dream garden shed, but we can’t resist the charm of a Dutch door. Maybe the storm door can go in the front and then the Dutch door could lead out to our well designed and flourishing dream garden

We also like the half-shed, half-greenhouse look (and function!) – so that’s exactly what ours would be like, with the addition of an outdoor space to prepare pots for planting.

Interior

Typically cabinetry, counter tops, flooring and paint would not be priorities in our everyday garden shed. But remember, this is the shed of our dreams so those things are just as important as the garden tools and accessories. Wood is the perfect counter top material for our dream shed, and the washed out brick floor offers a complete look that is still rustic. The farmhouse sink is also a dream necessity, making it easy to fill watering cans and give potted plants a good drenching if they need it. A quick coat of green paint on the walls, shelves and drawers creates a natural yet cheerful atmosphere.

And while we do love the cozy galley style of the above shed, we’d maybe put in a larger addition to one end of our dream shed so we could have a rustic wood table for planting projects.

Thursday’s Theme: The Garden of Our Dreams (a wishlist)

Thursday, March 14th, 2019

March snow made another appearance last night, which has us thinking even more about spring. For this week’s Thursday’s Theme, we’ve compiled a few photos of plants and features we would love to have in our [dream] garden. Tell us what’s on your wishlist, and share your spring gardening plans with us in a comment below.

Flowers, of course.

We love when a variety of colors and shapes makes a bold and cheerful statement in a garden – especially when they are mixed together.

Vegetables, of course.

Yes, the garden of our dreams would be both a flower garden and vegetable garden. Handmade raised beds for the latter, please.

Moving up.

A vertical section would be perfect up against a fence, a decorative trellis or a bare exterior wall (yes, cats would definitely be the rulers of our garden).

A creative/whimsical feature.

We could definitely get creative with some potted plants and displays, like this one showing a terracotta pot tipped over, “spilling” the flowers out into the mulch. Or a shovel garden stake adorned with metal garden pots.

A gathering place.

Above all else, we’d love a garden we could share with friends and loved ones. An outdoor table with enough space for coffee, tea (or a cocktail) and snacks would be the cherry on top of our dream garden sundae.

Weekly Spotlight: Web Exclusive Outdoor Furniture

Wednesday, June 13th, 2018

That’s right – we’ve added more decor to our selection of Web Exclusives. And more specifically, to our selection of exclusive outdoor furniture. Take a look below.

Eucalyptus Serving Cart With Tray

Slatted Benches | Outdoor Serving Cart

These pieces are all crafted from eco-friendly, sustainably harvested Eucalyptus Grandis wood and finished with a natural oil finish. This makes them durable for use during the spring, summer and fall, and beautiful enough to enhance the natural, decorative value of your outdoor spaces.

The multi-purpose Serving Cart can be stationed on a patio or porch to hold drinks for a garden party or snacks and condiments during a barbecue. It’s also perfect for wheeling around your garden as you landscape or do some additional planting throughout the seasons.

Each bench offers an outdoor seating option; all you have to do is choose between the straight design or curved design. You can see more ways to orient the curved bench here.
