Each week, Mark and I are 'weeding' through the landscape of outdoor design products and ideas, and finding the most compelling landscape design items, and feature three that go well together. These elements are old and new, and vary in terms of purpose. The posts are then archived in this section week by week, hopefully serving as inspiration to your design process.
So if you miss a week, don't panic, you can find it here.
Sometimes it just takes a few easy finds elements that can add texture, color, and something out of the ordinary to a garden. Here are 5 easy elements that we thing add that in combination can suggest something out of the ordinary and beyond expectation in any outdoor space.
