Let spring bring vibrant colors, and let fall and winter bring a bountiful harvest. You can set up your garden to provide happiness year-round with a variety of thriving plants, from the planter boxes, to the tools, to the greenhouses; we have everything you need to bring lots of life to your yard.
Plants: Flowers, Trees, Bushes
Basically, plants can be divided into two garden functions: ornamental and functional, depending on whether they create a visual landscape to enjoy or whether they can be harvested to fill your kitchen. With beautiful colors and fragrances, flowers increase the amount of joy you experience in the garden. A wide range of vegetables and fruits can be grown in the garden depending on your particular tastes and climate. In addition, large plants like hedges and trees provide structure, texture and privacy for your backyard space. You can give every plant a healthy head start by setting up a greenhouse. We have various sizes available including compact greenhouses if your space is limited.
Depending on the kind of garden you want, we have various styles and sizes of planter boxes to house them. Smaller planter boxes are perfect for bringing flowers up onto your deck or patio, or even to add some greenery to a balcony if you’re living the apartment life. Flower boxes give the roots plenty of room and support to grow and nourish healthy, happy plants, and a wide range of materials are available so you can find the perfect style that suits you. Flower stairs and trellises are available if you want to get even more decorative. If you’re looking to set up a serious vegetable garden, we have larger planter boxes you can inlay into the ground to create an extra rich garden bed to grow your crop.
In order to maximize your comfort on the patio or in the garden, adequate sun protection is of central importance. Sun shades protect you from harmful UV rays and excessive heat, as well as add to your privacy.
As much as we love the sunshine, we don’t always want to spend time in it. Patio umbrellas are suitable as mobile or stationary shade providers. Some are included with a stand, while others require a customizable stand option to be added. Stands can be filled with sand, water, or already have a concrete base that provides necessary stability. Market umbrellas can cover a large portion of the patio, while smaller patio umbrellas can be added to an outdoor dining set to make a shady place to eat and drink.
Awnings and Shade Sails
Awning are a particular stable and convenient option for creating a large shaded area. They are securely fastened to the wall, and come oftentimes retract when not in use. Shade sales are another easy way to create a large shaded area on your patio, and can easily be installed by tying the ends to walls, trees, garages, or posts. Post kits are available to purchase when needed to install your shade sail.
Tents and Gazebos
Set up a large permant shady centerpiece for your backyard, or choose a portable model that can be moved to parks or fields for soccer games or events. Our tents in gazebos come in numerous sizes and styles, so you can find the perfect one for your needs. A simple-pop up tent is great for soccer season, while a metal-framed pergola gazebo is a chic addition to your year-round patio set-up.
