Think spring in February! While it may be too early to start plotting planting specifics, this is a great time to take stock of and organize your garden tools and accessories. We suggest making a list of items you have and a wish list for new things you would like to try (tools, decor, landscaping), so when it’s time to plant flowers and vegetables you will be fully prepared.

This set of solar garden lights includes six colors and crackled glass that charms and decorates throughout the day and night. Perfect for staking in your garden, around a patio or inside large planters. Since they are powered by the sun, there’s no need for running wires across your lawn or replacing batteries.
This wrought iron bench gives any outdoor space an elegant look, and you can choose between a bench with a back or one without to best fit your style.
Incorporate this garden trellis into your outdoor living spaces this summer and watch your favorite flowers or vegetables (as well as the decorative factor of your backyard) climb.
While this iron beetle is quite decorative, it functions as a boot jack so you can easily remove rubber boots or your gardening shoes before stepping into the house.

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.
