Weekly Spotlight: Magnetic Garden Stake & Signs

Wednesday, June 19th, 2019

Flower Pickin' Garden Stake & Sign | Spring 2019 | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopToday we’re shining the spotlight on our Magnetic Garden Stake and the signs made exclusively for it.

We introduced the Magnetic Garden Stake in Spring 2019, and paired it with the Flower Pickin’ Magnetic Sign (designed by artist Susan Winget). The Sign fits perfectly on the double sided magnetic placard of the Stake, lending bright and seasonal charm to your front yard, garden or walkway. Start your collection with this pair, or purchase the Stake on its own and select one (or all) of the three additional Signs.

The three additional Signs can be found in our Summer 2019 catalog, and this time you will find space for adding your address. Both the Patriotic Mailbox Address Sign and Potted Geraniums Address Sign feature designs by artist Susan Winget, while artist Annie LaPointe designed the Geranium Bloom Address Sign.

Each of these four Signs is UV printed for durability and vivid, long lasting color. The magnetic placard on the Stake can be easily unhooked, adapting it for a garden flag if you prefer. In addition, the hand-welded wrought iron and powder coat will prolong the life of this durable outdoor home accent.

May is coming to a close, which means the season of outdoor living is practically here. Today we’ve rounded up five posts from the blog that highlight some of our favorite ways to decorate patios, gardens and more outdoor spaces, as well as ways to make the most out of the areas beyond your home’s interior.

Deck Safety

Now is the perfect time to inspect your deck for wobbly sections, loose screws and/or nails, and make note of other wear and tear. Read this post for more suggestions regarding deck safety.

Although a more specific post, the featured outdoor accents can be conveniently found among our selection of web exclusive decor. At the very least, we think this particular post provides some inspiration for how to utilize and furnish outdoor spaces.

Bee and Insect Houses

A great way to promote bee and insect health, which also boosts the health of your garden and outdoor plants.

Porch and Outdoor Lighting

We had to include a renovation-type post, and this one is small enough for anyone to try. Switch out light fixtures or add them; doing so will make a big impact outside your home this summer and throughout the year.
