Susanna Farm Nursery Visit

If you’re looking for specimen trees, Susanna Farm Nursery is a great destination. It feels more like an arboretum than a trade nursery, and you can easily spend an hour or two strolling through the grounds. I was looking for some good-sized maples to use as accents in a client’s back garden, but I also came across some wonderful willow standards for another project. Well worth the trip for the beauty and inspiration and just a relaxing afternoon out.

GREEN BLESSING

Constructed elements and accessories are a great way to add height in the garden. Don’t forget to think in 3-D!

Pergola Time!

Mid-summer is a great time for construction! This pergola is going to tie together the back seating area and really complement the house. Feeling adventurous? Try it yourself!

Coolest A/C Screening Ever!

Well, this is the most ingenious screening and storage structure I’ve ever seen! Love it!
