Summer might be officially over, but it does not really mean you have to spend all your time indoors. Whether you plan the next few months on the patio, within in the confines of the sunroom or still wish to enjoy the colors of fall as you spend the slightly cold evenings in the garden, lighting becomes an increasingly essential aspect of that ‘perfect outdoor hangout’. And with the versatile and mobile Balad outdoor lamp from Fermob, you have a bright and energy-savvy companion that serves you well in a variety of outdoor settings and does so without the hassles of endless lines of wiring.
If you live in an area where it’s not practical to cultivate a lush, green lawn, you may be interested in creating a more drought-tolerant landscape by using native plants that don’t require much water. Xeriscaping is becoming increasingly popular, and even if you’re not looking to add large amounts of gravel to your yard, you can create an abundant look by grouping plants into clusters. After all, there’s power in numbers. Whether you saturate an area with a large number of the same plant or you introduce some variety by incorporating a couple of different types of native plants, you can get a modern look by planting greenery in rows or tidy groups. When “like” plants are placed together and more than one selection is involved, you can achieve eye-catching contrast. Or you can make a statement by including one different plant that stands out in the pack (scroll to the top of the post to see a lone blue agave plant take center stage in a sea of Mexican feather grass).
A picket fence is very versatile. It’s an amazing addition to a rural, countryside home that is surrounded by nature and needs to stand out among the greens. The entrance onto your property has a lot of value. It can be cute and subtle, or it can be majestic and grandiose. Pair a big entryway with a classy white picket fence to create an unforgettable exterior that embodies glamour and elegance. Even when the picket fence is not in the center of attention it’s hard to imagine the yard without it. The focal point is undoubtedly the house and the fence may be hidden among the tall flowers, but just catching a glimpse of it can be felt upon the ambiance of the whole home!
