Little Details Make a Big Difference

The weather, where I live, has decided to stabilize, and I was able to move my flowers and plants outside, erect my deck pavilion, and get my garden fountain back in working order. This "outside room" is such a difference maker for me; the long winter made me long for it all the more. I'm hoping it will go a long way in fighting COVID Blues. Also this past week, I've discovered another thing that helps me cope: Sketching landscapes. One thing that jumped out at me from my crude drawings was a product we often take for granted: Railings. In looking over our inventory I came to realize what a great category it is. Here's a favorite, along with other exteriors products to help clients better enjoy the great outdoors.
