A Few Ideas for a Pergola
A pergola makes a striking accent to any landscaping theme; not only are they eye-catching, but functional as well. Depending on their size, pergolas often become an extension of the main home, and may be used for entertaining, dining, or as a getaway or quiet oasis for reading or enjoying morning coffee.
Pergolas are a shady, garden structure whose beginnings date back to ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, and were common features in early Renaissance gardens throughout Europe.
Their primary purpose was to provide shade on walkways, terraces or pools. The earlier versions were often constructed from stone pillars with wooden cross-beams with a lattice roof.
Tips to Build a Gazebo
Are you handy and think you can build a gazebo from scratch? If the case there are plenty of free gazebo plans available in libraries and online, or blueprints available to buy.
The more expensive gazebo plans are architectural blueprints, which are much more specific and best suited to the experienced contractor. But a talented home improvement buff can make good use of the less expensive options available.
No Garden Should Be Without Azaleas
Azaleas are a large, diverse group of flowering shrubs with single and double blooms in many shades of white, purple, red, pink or orange. Most bloom from early to late spring with a few extending later into the growing season.
For many people, it's not officially spring until they turn on the TV and see the azaleas that bloom each April at the Augusta National Country Club in Georgia - the site of the Masters professional golf tournament.
To enjoy the beauty of azaleas at your own home, begin by choosing a variety that is well adapted to your garden environment and climate.
Natural native landscaping is the only way to go if you want an interesting garden
About 50 years ago, to say that something was "natural" was kind of bad. After centuries of living with the natural, people were excited about having a say.
If for instance, your garden was full of exotic plants from Japan and Korea and if you had to apply all kinds of pesticides and fertilizers to keep them alive, that's when you felt good about it.
