We’re deep in the midst of summer and there’s no better time to get those outdoor projects done. Before the evening sunlight begins to fade and the leaves fall, get that outdoor list fully checked off.
When winter hits you are going to hurry to store all of your tools, planters, pots and other outdoor accessories. Now is the best time to get storage squared away – you have time to shop and time to build.
You can take the leap and finally get that beautiful and spacious storage shed you’ve always had your eye on or go for something that will meet the needs of right now like the Cedar Cubby storage unit. Now is also time to tackle the constant struggle of pool area storage. Never lose a noodle again!
It’s always wise to do your building when the ground isn’t frozen solid. So that’s why now is the time to get started on that outdoor visual focus. Whether a sculpture, fountain or structure a visual focus is a piece of decor that ties your outdoor space together. Now is a great time to shop for ideas and get your yard ready for installation.
If you love to garden but don’t have the best area or soil for gardening trying your hand at a raised bed could be beneficial before the summer comes to a close. Raised beds allow you to garden with better soil conditions on top of your yard or spruce up an area with a little contained nature. You can buy quality cedar raised beds from us or build your own!
If you’re fence isn’t pristine and you aren’t ready for a new one take time this summer to make repairs and prep for the coming cold. Now is the time to make fixes to your wood fence to keep it functional and vertical for the winter. Take some time to repaint or stain and sure up any areas lacking structural integrity. Getting this done while the sun is shining will make your life a whole lot easier than digging through leaves or snow.
What better way to enjoy the summer nights than around a fire?! This is an addition that doesn’t have to be permanent or costly and can expand your outdoor enjoyment well into winter.
If you want to take on a project build your own DIY fire pit or seating area just take a look online or talk to a friend with a setup you envy. If you would rather leave the fire to the pros you can focus on creating a cozy seating area around a fire bowl. This new space can be enjoyed anytime the sky is clear!
Outdoor structures are an easy way to enhance the natural beauty of your home or garden, enhance your landscaping and create an inviting atmosphere. A structure also serves as a visual focal point that can really add a boost to your home’s curb appeal and be the basis for an area of visual interest you can build upon. Though all structures accomplish this none do so quite as easily as a classic arbor.
Arbors can be used along with fencing and gates, hedges and perimeter landscaping, footpaths, or just by itself to establish an entryway to a garden area. The structures are versatile and have a simple elegance. Choose a graceful arch top or a flat pergola top with or without lattice panels.
One of the best things about an arbor is it’s simplicity. Here are a few standard arbor designs that can fit into virtually any outdoor area…
With its handsome good looks, the Plantation Arbor is always an inviting attraction, no matter where it is located in the garden. It measures 6-feet wide with 4-inch square vinyl posts and three sturdy carrying beams. The horizontal/vertical lattice side panels are 6-feet high with 2½ inch openings. Sold with our comfortable 4-foot Hyannis porch swing which is crafted from low maintenance recycled material.
This wide arbor looks great with a swing or just to frame a larger entryway. Utilize the lattice panels and pergola style top to grow vertically!
If your vision for an arbor includes a graceful arch the Standard Spindle Top Arbor is your best bet.
This arbor is the classic look that many homeowners envision for their homes. The arched top is flanked by two lattice side panels that compliment any style fencing and can be used as an anchor to climbing plants of any variety.
This design looks great with a fence and gate but can also be a great addition to a stone or gravel footpath to create a little bit of whimsy.
Crafted in AZEK cellular PVC with 4-inch square posts with 3 1/2 inch square arch. 5-foot high horizontal/vertical lattice side panels with 38-inch depth.
Walpole arbors make a grand entrance no matter the architecture of your home or where you choose to locate them. Our standard 6-foot wide Garden Arbor has 4-inch square posts, and a 4-inch square decorative carrying beam. The impressive pergola-style top is complemented by horizontal/vertical lattice side panels.
The Garden arbor is handcrafted in low maintenance AZEK cellular PVC. This advanced vinyl has the weight and look of natural wood, yet it won’t rot, warp, or crack, and will hold its pristine looks for years with little-to-no effort required.
While we offer a wide selection of standard arbors, we will work with your ideas to create the perfect customized structure to meet your location, taste, and needs. Our arbors are factory prepainted so there no mess during installation.
If you scroll through Pinterest enough you will find yourself dreaming of a garden pathway that looks like it was ripped straight from a fairytale. Lush greens and flowers growing wildly surround a rustic stone pathway that leads to anywhere and everywhere.
Well, you’ve got your arbor (that was easy) now it’s time to get your hands dirty! If you want that etherial pathway lined with flowers you first have to plan and define it.
Creating your own garden path may seem like a real chore but it can be fun and simple if you plan ahead and have the right tools…and like a bit of hard work!
Materials: First you have to choose what kind of path you are going to create. Do you want to use stone? Brick? Gravel? Or something more organic like mulch? Deciding on your material makes a huge difference in how you are going to create the path. So first look at the space you have and the aesthetic. If you don’t have so much room maybe a path of large stones won’t work. For a stone or brick path keep on reading!
Measure and dig: With string and pegs measure and map out your path. Remember if you want a certain edging to include that when you measure. From there dig enough dirt out to accommodate the sand and gravel that will make up the bottom of the pathway. Also remember to make the path slant at an angle sightly for proper drainage. Once that is finished use some wood to enclose the pathway by securing it to the pegs you added to map out the path earlier.
Gravel and stone: Get your gravel and spread a layer on the pathway, tamping it down afterwards. Next spread a layer of sand making sure it is perfectly level and filled. After you can lay your stone or brick into the sand, tamping them down so they are securely in the sand and level with each other. After you are finished fill the gaps between bricks or stones with fine sand, finishing off with some more decorative gravel on the surface.
