Before you know it the sun will be shining and the mercury rising! Summer is finally here.
The only way to truly enjoy the season is by spending as much time outside as you can… which is precisely why now is the time to install that outdoor shower.
If you have a pool or live by the beach an outdoor shower is a no-brainer and can save your interior from salt, sand and water damage. But not only is it practical, it’s actually a lot of fun too! Enjoy the warmth when you move your daily shower outside – it’s a simple pleasure that can make a big difference in how you start your day.
Walpole Outdoors has a wide variety of options when it comes to outdoor showers. You can find designs in both natural cedar and AZEK low-maintenance wood alternative. Standard kit showers come in 15 styles both attached and free-standing so you can place it wherever you want. You can also get a custom shower installed to incorporate your home’s unique look.
Sometimes a standard structure just isn’t what you are looking for. Your home, business or development is a unique space and deserves an enclosure that will both stand out and blend in as well as suit your specific needs.
Enclosures can be utilized for a myriad of reasons – to conceal garbage cans or outdoor equipment, conceal outdoor storage, create a safer space for gardening or composting or as a barrier for a beautiful new outdoor shower. Whatever the need, we can build it.
One of the most popular enclosures for residential spaces is outdoor shower enclosures. An outdoor shower is ideal for a home by the beach or with a pool or hot tub that sees a lot of activity – but they are great for any home if you want to shower under the stars! Outdoor showers keep the chlorine, sand and dirt outdoors throughout the summer so you don’t have to worry about damaging the interior of your home after using the pool or swimming in the ocean.
Outdoor shower enclosures can be purchased in standard kit form or custom built by Walpole design experts. Both options are designed with beauty and function in mind and will last season after season.
Many of our other popular enclosures involve concealment. Walpole offers many types of concealing enclosures from the duly-concealing board fence to lattice enclosures seen here. Each enclosure does what you need it to while still allowing easy access to the area inside. Enclosures can be built to match existing fencing and can be custom pained to blend in seamlessly with your home or business.
Take a garbage enclosure for example. These enclosures are built to house two (or more) garage bins. Not only do they conceal the bins but also protect them from pests (including raccoons) and keep them secure in the event of a storm or high winds. Not having to clean up your yard after a raccoon has gone through a bin or the wind has taken it for a spin is worth the investment itself!
Spring is here! After a long and cold winter you can finally break ground (literally) on some of your spring projects. While the season is still in transition now is the perfect time to make some smaller changes to you home and garden. The perfect place to start is with a simple yet beautiful mailbox post or lantern post.
We manufacture a variety of mail and lantern posts in a variety of materials. A mailbox post or lantern post is a great way to add some curb appeal to your home and create a classic elegance to your landscaping. One of the funnest part of having a beautiful mail or lantern post is getting to add some seasonal touches to the area around it.
Around the post: Spring is full of possibilities. Garden around your mail or lantern post with bright flowers and simple planters. A great way to start is to add mulch or potting soil to a circular area around the post. From there add some kind of edging like stone or brick. If you don’t want an edging make sure the edge between dirt and grass is clearly defined. After creating the space add some simple spring plants that can add some color. Add a few small shrubs to create some lush greens and add a few bushels of colorful tulips, daffodils, or bunches of pansies. If you want a more rustic look go big with larger plants with smaller flowers and grasses.
Go tall: If you like something more vertical plant a climbing plant like clematis or climbing roses! These plants will quickly climb and add a beautiful mix of colors and greens that will bring your post to life. If you take this route be sure to keep an eye on your post to make sure the plant is growing in the right direction and is well pruned. Read up on five of our favorite climbing plants to get some ideas!
Fun planters: If you want to keep the ground area around your post simple add a few plants in pots and containers. A great way to celebrate spring is to utilize a small wooden barrel cut in half, filled with colorful flowers. Another fun idea is to fill an old watering can with soil and plant some tulips in it and place it next to the post. The post is already a focal point in your yard so make it fun and seasonal! Look through our past post for some inspiration on container gardens.
When designing an outdoor area or building facade for a client or a project a lot of thought goes into the functionality of each structure. Will it last? Is it strong? While keeping that in mind think more about the details of the project – Is this striking? Will this create a positive association in people’s memories?
A great way to accomplish both is by utilizing lattice panels as both decorative and functional structures.
Lattice has a unique way of creating a more private space while also not making a space feel suffocating. Clients have used lattice panel fencing, custom large-scale lattice pieces and even lattice fence toppers to create breathable areas of privacy. Rooftop gardens, pool areas, storage enclosures and courtyards have all been improved with beautiful and low-maintenance AZEK lattice panels and fencing.
Large scale projects are also a great way to introduce some natural elements into the design of a building or outdoor area. Just coax some ivy or another climbing plant and any outdoor area is bright to life.
Creating a beautiful lasting memory is the goal of any designer or developer. A classic way to do this with an outdoor space is to utilize standard or decorative lattice panels. Panels can be custom made in any size and can be attached to bare walls or freestanding.
Lattice panels provide an almost limitless number of opportunities to be creative in a specific area of the garden – with spectacular results. The custom Lattice Arch shown here was handcrafted for a function facility and serves as an appropriately charming backdrop for treasured photographs.
While beautiful in a garden, lattice panels don’t always have to be where the nature is.
Adding symmetrical panels to either side of an entryway is a great way to create some visual interest at the first point a visitor is in contact with your space.
Made with long lasting, maintenance-free AZEK wood alternative, Walpole lattices are fully customizable to truly fit the aesthetic of your building.

Adding some charm and interest to your home or garden doesn’t have too be difficult or even too expensive. You can go big or small with something geometric or with romantic curves. Lattice panels come in all shapes and sizes and fit into almost any home or garden setup. If you can dream it we can do it!
Small lattice panels are a great way to add a little interest to a bare wall attached to the exterior of a home, garden enclosure, shed or garage. You can go with something simple and rectangular like the Standard Decorative Lattice Panel or something sweeping and elegant like the Rosewood Classic Lattice Panel.
Each piece comes in its own standard sizing but can be made to order in any size that you need to complete your project. Each AZEK lattice panel is finished in white but can be painted any Sherwin Williams vinyl safe color to best suit your needs.
A little creativity goes a long way. We’ve helped customers bring their unique visions to life by crafting the intricate large-scale free-standing lattice structures in their imaginations. Each structure serves a unique purpose whether it be a visual statement, fence or a privacy screen.

Preserving the look and feel of a historical location is important when renovating. Walpole has worked with numerous clients to craft lattice panels that maintain the historical appearance of old, treasured buildings.
In 2013 a New York City customer sought Walpole’s help in replicating an historical lattice motif for their rooftop garden at a location originally built by Fred F. French in the 1920s. This distinctive lattice was handcrafted in cellular PVC, so the apartment owners will have little maintenance concerns for years as they enjoy the great looks of this classic presentation high above the bustling metropolis.
