Just like that the year is nearly over. Instead of reflecting on the past let’s look to the future. If you need a fresh start in 2017 a great place to focus your energy is on your yard and garden. Now is the time to start planning that new feature, new structure, or brand new outdoor space. Take some chances! Make an investment! Kick off the new year with a new yard.
Refresh Your Fencing
When was your fence installed? Does it still look like it did when it was new? Has your style changed since you installed you fence? These are the questions to ask yourself to see if you are in need of a fencing refresh in 2017.
If you need something new take your time choosing a style so you can find the one that you will still love 10 years from now. Sick of the classic white picket? Go for a green board fence. Tired of the rustic post and rail? Take on a classic Nantucket Picket.
You have a few months of cold to go over your options to be ready for springtime. Give us a call for a free consultation with one of our design experts who can walk you through every detail in deciding which fence is right for you.
Invest in that Structure
Nothing brings your outdoor space to life quite like a beautiful structure to tie everything together.
Is 2017 the year you finally add that pergola you’ve had your eye on?
Pergolas are not only an attractive addition to your home, yard or garden but a practical one at that. The shade and protection a pergola provides will ensure that you will spend a lot more time enjoying the outdoors in 2017 and the following years. And isn’t more time outdoors a good thing?
Whether you are looking for a customized structure or something a little more straightforward we have the perfect pergola for your space. All of our pergolas are built in either the finest cedar wood or AZEK wood alternative materials that mimic the look and feel of wood without all the maintenance required of it.
Make this the year you don’t have to chase animals out of your flower beds and vegetables! Take your garden to the next level in 2017 with a garden enclosure.
Garden enclosures don’t have to be fancy or expensive but they can if you would like that. From wood and wire to beautiful AZEK lattice paneling there is an option to suit almost everyone.
Take a look at some of our most popular styles for garden enclosures as well as some of the custom work we’ve done all over the country in our previous blog post.
Operating an outdoor patio area can be a great investment for a business in the hospitality space. As the weather warms up and even in the winter in some milder climates, an outdoor patio can provide additional seating, increased revenue, and happier customers for a restaurant. Research has shown that patio seating can add as much as 30 percent in sales to an establishment’s receipts, so it’s no wonder that outdoor seating is something a lot of businesses choose to invest in.
There is always the chance of perfect weather. For all the other days of operating an outdoor seating area, sun and rain protection is a must. Rain can shut down outdoor seating for days in certain seasons and cut into a restaurant, club, or hotel’s profits in no time. Likewise, too much sun and heat aren’t always welcome. With growing health concerns for UV exposure and an aging population, an outdoor space can become uncomfortable for patrons, driving customers away in search of a shady outdoor space leaving your patio empty. Meanwhile, a full and active patio is an excellent advertisement of a restaurant’s popularity.
To ensure outdoor serving areas produce revenue and attract customers, an increasing number of businesses in the hospitality niche are turning to retractable patio covers. Retractable patio covers keep a patio up and running rain or shine, keeping the wet away and patrons cool on harsh summer days.
When considering a patio cover, business owners may want to run a few numbers to determine what kind of ROI they could get from investing in a retractable patio cover.
A basic calculation can illustrate the sizeable ROI potential. In this example of a small outdoor space, simply keeping a patio open an additional 15 days in a season can return $45,000. Let’s say we have a casual dining restaurant with a $25 per seat average and a patio space with just six tables of four.
With 45k in receipts for an extra 15-days of seating (with just 10 table turnovers at 50% capacity), a retractable patio cover will see your business recouping the investment in these 15 days assuming a 20% bottom line. The ROI is considerably higher if you also account for the added revenue and return generated on all the other days. With a retractable patio cover you now have a more comfortable dining environment sheltered from the sun.
The patio area needs to possess many of the same interior space characteristics to maintain a consistent brand, style, and ambience. A Walpole Pergola with retractable canopies can be traditional or contemporary, wood or low maintenance AZEK -in virtually any color. With an attractive canopy fabric, the outdoor dining area by Walpole can incorporate light fixtures, radiant heaters, speakers, TV’s railings, lattice, trellis planters and screening.

It’s never to early to be thinking about spring. For 2017 treat your garden (and yourself) to a little added safety and style with a garden enclosure. Garden enclosures come in a wide variety of styles, like Walpole’s beloved fencing, and can be custom crafted to suit any kind of space.
Go for a rustic look with a classic post and rail style enclosure made from the highest quality cedar. This enclosure gives you that simple woodland natural look that will fit in perfect with the natural look of your garden while keeping out pests and pets.
Avid gardeners are well aware of the damage that foraging animals can wreak on their hard work. But you don’t have to sacrifice style for function with the beautiful Lattice with Wire garden enclosure. This open lattice fence includes sturdy wire mesh within the framework to effectively deter those pesky critters.
Another favorite is a more utilitarian look with an enclosure made from wood and wire with decorative copper post caps. This kind of enclosure is sturdy and durable great for homes with large gardens and large pests.

One of the biggest design trends for shopping centers is open outdoor spaces.
Developers and architects concentrate on enhancing their shopping centers by creating attractive sites, new looks, places for shopper enjoyment and enhanced property value.
Structures included in the landscape plan welcome the traveler, help guide motor traffic, beautify the grounds, provide shoppers with resting spots and shade, provide way-finding and security, and conceal waste collection and utility areas.
Whether it’s fencing or a shady pavilion, a pergola, a decorative rooftop feature or a dumpster enclosure, everything outside must be made of durable material and be finished to withstand any tough climate condition.
Walpole Outdoors specializes in crafting beautiful and durable structures for a variety of outdoor spaces. Walpole works with developers and architects directly to create custom products that meet each unique project’s individual needs.
Each project has been crafted in high quality, low-maintenance wood alternative material AZEK for infinite life, factory painted for style, color and durability and kitted for the simplest of installation cost.
Built by Walpole in modules and shipped to Mississippi, the Tanger Outlet entrance tower hides HVAC equipment and is an attractive signature feature that can be seen for miles around. Because the location of the structure is nearly inaccessible it was built with reinforced AZEK and Sherwin-Williams paint to make maintenance unnecessary. Designed in Chicago, engineered by Walpole Outdoors right here in Massachusetts, built by Walpole in Maine and installed on-site by the contractor.
One of the most popular structure at Walpole Outdoors are stylish pergolas. Many AZEK pergolas go to commercial sites to add appeal and value to a public space, ambience to a restaurant’s outdoor dining area or shelter from the elements over a sidewalk.
Walpole’s ornamental Iron fencing, AZEK lantern posts, lattice panels, planters, post and rail fencing all share the same objective of style, durability and ease of installation. Many are off-the-shelf and the rest are detailed by our engineers to finalize the architect’s concept.
