Row of Cedar Trees

Cedar being an evergreen tree makes for a great year round hedge.

These white cedar trees run the edge of a driveway and provide more of a wind break.

Many property owners plant a row of cedars as a property line break rather than use more expensive options such as a wood fence.

There are many types of cedar trees and more pictures can be found on our Cedar Trees page

In the evergreen tree class, because it retains it’s green needles year round.

In the Autumn a large perimeter bed of fallen needles is created .. which animals rummage around in and source the seeds found in pine cones

Garden Water Pond

When looking for a water feature, one the first things is to consider scale … it is very easy to just buy one you fancy and then get it home to find it is too tiny for the spot you had in mind. Good part about buying a water feature at your local retailer is that you can easily return it, usually for full refund.

The fun part for me about having a garden water feature is that it attracts birds during the dryer summer times … if water fountain is close to your patio seating area or a window .. it is quite a cool experience to have them be so close … watching visiting birds just going about their business is enjoyable.

A couple safety considerations, is that other insects are interested in your water source, these include wasps and bees and can be annoying and a sting hazard to some .. especially if they frequent your patio area .. and are constantly flying through your seating area. Also to be aware of young children may be temped to touch the water, if in reach, maybe afterwards put their hands in their mouth. Remember that bacteria from summer heat … and birds poop will contaminate your water … good warn to your kids and any visiting children not to touch the water.

The fastest way to get a water pond and/or fountain is to buy a prefabricated one … water features can be found at retailers like Amazon, Lowes, Home Depot … and your local garden center which may have larger water fountains in more elaborate garden styles

Wood Stools

Wood Stools are handy as they can be used for every day use or secondary seating, brought out for added seating.

These wood stools are cut out of solid wood and thus have a solid bottom and are relatively sturdy.

Without backs, the stool makes for a great space saver .. able to be tucked under a table or in a corner when not in use.

Nice part about the above designed wood stools, these are little more up scale design than the basic cut log pieces that one going to find around the outdoor firepit.

Note: These turned stools are not readily found and may require custom order or fabrication.
