Calling all Garden Enthusiasts – Daylight Savings Time is Here!

by: EP Henry

The time has finally come. We turned our clocks back at 2:00 AM Sunday, March 9, signaling daylight savings time, which is also a harbinger of the spring season (and the warm weather that comes with it). While it may irk some folks to lose an hour of sleep, others rejoice in the extra daylight we gain and the chance to resume their favorite outdoor activities, like cleaning up and redesigning their landscapes.

There are tons of ways to rework your existing gardens and yards, and the trends are running towards creating an outdoor living space that is as unique and comfortable as your living room. Check out some of the landscaping trends we think will be prevalent for 2014:

Trendsetters

While some homeowners clean out flowerbeds and prune trees and shrubs, some plan to repurpose high-maintenance/low return lawn and garden areas into private outdoor entertainment spaces. Homeowners with large and small properties alike have taken to adding decorative pavers that define and beautify gardens. Adding walkways or apatio increases home value and function by expanding family living space.

While utilitarian in nature, new colors, patterns and finishes in pavers are being used to create scaled -down “at home” getaways all over America. Creative dwellers are transforming drab and unused yards into romantic getaways and private VIP party spots.

Please Be Seated

Remember those ugly, uncomfortable webbed lawn chairs? Those days are over. Furniture designs for outdoor entertaining rival indoor lines, and allow consumers to decorate their space and continue to maintain consistency with their home’s style and quality. Nowadays, patios sport teak, intricate cast aluminum, and all weather wicker sofas, loveseats and chairs.  Finishing touches using accent pillows in lush fabrics cozy up a cold corner and add personality and panache.

outdoor entertainment

Al Fresco Dining

A meal outdoors on a beautiful evening with good food and friends is one of life’s best simple pleasures. There’s something about it that encourages us to kick back and unwind.

While grills still reign supreme in outdoor cooking plans, seasoned cooks are now bringing it all outside. Landscapes are fit with modular kitchen kits that can be custom ordered to fit your particular lifestyle needs. Indoor appliances such as sinks, refrigerators and bars are now being duplicated outdoors. For those who entertain frequently, wine coolers, warming drawers and pizza ovens are now making the scene.

Gather Round the Fire

Not only to keep you warm in the fall and winter months when you venture outdoors, a cozy fire pit or outdoor fireplace provides a rustic gathering spot amidst your gardens. Kits are fully customizable in size and shape and homeowners can choose stone veneers such as ledgestone, river rock and brick.

Gazebo drapes, (patio curtains) offer privacy and shade and help to insulate the space around your fire on breezy evenings. These can be hung using hooks, rods or even Velcro for easy on/off installation.

Mood Lighting

To get the most out of your new outdoor entertainment space and enjoy your landscape into the night hours, outdoor lighting is both mood enhancing as well as functional. This finishing touch can really wow your party goers. Hurricane lamps or tiki lights along a path offer safety and draw guests into the space.  Adding string lights overhead invoke a Mediterranean courtyard while “washing” a wall in light or up-lighting trees adds interest and drama.  Try adding unexpected standing lamp fixtures to really bring the cozy feeling of the inside out.

So, don’t forget to spring forward in the wee hours of Sunday morning and get your extra hour of sun. However you choose to take advantage of the extra time, you’ll be sure to feel energized and invigorated after the extreme winter we’ve had this year.

Create a Perfect Paradise-with Poly Furniture

Is your patio ready for Summer?  Does it look a little bare or is your furniture in need of an upgrade?  Now is the time to buy our quality poly furniture!  Read below to find out just why poly furniture is so popular.

Why Poly Furniture?

 We’re well into the month of June and I’m sure you have already started getting your outside entertainment areas cleaned up and ready to use again. Maybe some of you already had some outdoor barbeques or picnics! My family loves the outdoors and we have used our fire pit and picnic area a couple of times already this year.

Part of preparing your outside entertainment area for the summer is getting all your outdoor furniture pulled out of storage, cleaned up, and maybe even apply a new coat of paint or stain (much to your chagrin). For most of us, getting everything put away and stored for winter, and then getting it out again and cleaning it up in the spring, is a job that we don’t desire.  For some of us, we look at our outdoor furniture, and let out a despairing sigh, because the furniture that was nicely stained, not long ago, is now faded, ugly, and beginning to warp.

That is why I recommend choosing “poly furniture” for all your outdoor furniture needs. Poly furniture is nonporous, so it is unaffected by the sun, rain, snow, sleet, wind, saltwater, chlorine and mildew. That means that it can be left out all year long! No more filling up your shed or garage every winter, then having to dig it out every spring. You just simply need to keep it clean by washing it with soap and water, and you can enjoy your furniture for years and years to come!

The birth of poly lumber came from a desire for a product that is 100% maintenance free and will last for a lifetime. It is an innovative idea of taking old plastic bottles and recycling them into recycled plastic lumber, which is becoming increasingly popular with today’s society of becoming a more eco-friendly world. So the old saying stands true, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”  Our poly furniture is an earth friendly, fully recycled product.

When considering poly furniture, many people are concerned about whether or not it will fade with time. I usually tell people that even a Cadillac may fade with time. However, the coloring is molded all the way through every piece and it never needs painted or sealing. Everyone that has poly furniture will tell you how much they love it and that it doesn’t fade.

Some more benefits to using poly furniture besides the no maintenance factor and no fading, are the lower cost per year (NO re-staining or painting), no splitting or splintering, it’s always smooth to the touch and there are many colors to match your real estate.

Stop by our landscape center and check out the different poly furniture items we have sprinkled throughout our displays. We can special order any item. There are many colors and styles to choose from. We would love to see you here!

-Jason Sensenig (sales associate)

One of the best things about poly furniture is the fact that it is recycled and earth friendly. Watch this video to see how  it is manufactured.
