A pergola is a structure with grace and simplicity that adds charm to a building or home and purpose to an outdoor space.

Pergolas add value to just about any kind of space. At a restaurant it provides shade for diners to enjoy a meal or drinks outdoors, expanding seating and adding an amenity that will be popular in the warmer weather. At a housing development, senior center or country club it provides a communal area for people to gather and relax while still enjoying the outdoors. At a shopping center or public business area it adds a hint of charm and structure that can keep people there longer and give them space to relax.

Adding an outdoor structure like a pergola to a space only expands its usefulness but even if it isn’t utilized often it’s still a handsome structure that can be dressed up with decor and plants. Pergolas are aesthetically pleasing and will leave visitors to your business or development with a positive impression.

New Year, New Pergola

The beginning of the year is a time for makeovers – health, body and finances are always popular choices but there is another you may have not considered… your yard.

Though you can’t do too much outside right now with the sub-zero temperatures you can certainly shop around and make plans for renovations come spring. Start getting that check-list ready. You are going to want to start with the big pieces first and then get to the finer details like decorations and flower choices closer to springtime.

A great way to start a yard overhaul is with a new structure to anchor the space. A structure like a pergola serves as a central piece to build off of, a first step like a foundation in building a house.

Pergolas are regal and offer you a little space of shade and privacy in any kind of natural setting. You can build one that is large and expansive or one small and decorative. They can be constructed freestanding away from the home or attached to it almost serving as an extension of the living space.

These structures can be customized in a myriad ways to suit a variety of spaces including shape, material and color. Utilize one in the garden with a few chairs and benches or on by the pool with an outdoor kitchen and plush furniture.

AZEK is a material that looks and feels like real wood without ever splitting or rotting and requiring little to no maintenance over the course of its lifetime. AZEK can also be customized to suit your needs in every way including a large selection of colors.

Use the winter months to find out what pergola best suits your needs. Do you want round or square columns? Arched or straight top? Make your list of needs and start a conversation to find exactly what you need before you need it.

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 2018.

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.

Time to Start Spring Garden Prep

pexels-photo-296230

Every day that passes is one day closer to the growing season. Are you prepared to start your garden this spring? Preparation is key when tending a successful garden throughout the season. There are many ways you can prepare for your spring garden without actually having to get out there and start planting. Use your winter wisely and consider these steps to starting a successful spring garden.

1. Start with a plan. Even if you are recreating the same garden you have had in years past it’s always a great idea to map out exactly what you are going to do to get the appropriate amount of supplies and spend less time measuring in the spring. Grab some graph paper and a pencil and map out your garden including any of the plants you plan to grow. You can go into as much detail as you want but having a plan is the best way to be able to budget your time and money.

2. Gather seeds and plant seedlings. If you haven’t already you should start gathering seeds for what you want to plant. Many gardeners take it a step further and begin their plants indoors with seedling trays. If you are going to do that then make sure to place them in your home near a lot of light and water them regularly. This way your plants will already be growing by the time they are suitable for planting outdoors giving you weeks more to enjoy them!

3. Think about new plants you can add. Spend a little time online, talking to other gardeners to garden professionals to zero in on the latest trends and colors you can add to keep your garden modern! Every new year brings new trends in the gardening world, if you can identify them early then you can save money stocking up before the season begins.

4. Get all of your tools ready. One of the best time to buy gardening tools and supplies is during the off season when stock is high and prices are low. Take a look at what you already have and think about what could use a replacement or upgrade. This is a great time to also consider adding larger structures to your garden like an arbor or obelisk. You can get more one-on-one time with a professional during the off season and have your structure ready to go at the start of spring.

Brighten Up Your Winter Garden

pexels-photo-370922

While the weather outside may be frightful, it can also be colorful! Winter doesn’t mean you have to put your green thumb away until spring; there are still many things you can do to make the exterior of your home beautiful and vibrant.

While you are out hanging holiday lights and shoveling snow off of your driveway spend a little time making a few festive touches to your garden and home exterior. Here are a few ways you can still keep your garden design juices flowing this winter…

Container Gardening: While container gardening is always in season it’s a key part of your winter landscape. Your containers become your best friends giving you space to plant and design while the ground is frozen. Fill you planter 2/3 with sand and fill with dried perennials and dried twigs and grasses to keep with the season. Go for some killer evergreens to make it a truly winter inspired arrangement! The best part is you don’t have to water it because everything is dried. Add some coneflowers and some seasonal accessories as the season changes. Once spring comes just dump it out and get to planting things that will grow!

Window Boxes: Window boxes are also great places to create non-growing arrangements that can provide as much color and charm as blooming flowers. Approach a window box like a planter using sand to anchor the stems and filling it with dried perennials and evergreens. Add a few holiday items to make it seasonal or wait until it snows and you have that wonderful look of a coating of snow on top.

Add Lights: You can still enjoy some of your outdoor structures in the winter with a few twinkling lights. Snow and lights are a great combination. Wrap a few lights around your trellis, lamppost, or container garden. Use smaller white lights to make it look less Christmas-like and enjoy throughout winter!

Birdbath Transformation: Since the birds have gone away for a while, turn your birdbath into a wonderful seasonal pedestal. Add some evergreens, berries, and pinecones for a seasonal look. Add a focal point to the display like a small statue or big holiday ornament to draw the attention to the top center of the display.
