Super Structures Every Garden Needs


We all love our gardens. Some of us may care for our gardens more than others, but the love is the same; it is our little piece of the great outdoors. Flowers, trees, a mowed lawn, decking, patio, barbecue, pond; you name it, we all have something that makes our garden special. But there is one thing little upgrade that can take a garden from just pretty to pretty darn usable, and that is a structure, and that is where we are going to act as your inspiration. Think of it as a little garden project you can undertake this summer. No need to thank us.

The Shed Of Your Dreams
This is a must-have for every garden, but while it was traditionally just a place to store your garden tools, it has evolved into something much, much more. A garden shed is now a place that allows you to de-clutter your garden, provide a comfortable workspace, let you go about doing your bits and bobs come rain or shine and act as a truly magnificent backdrop to your most prized plants and flowers. That’s not all, though, because while all sheds were once bland and boring the latest trend is geared towards big and bold. So go and have some fun with your shed, inside and out.

Work From Home, Sort Of
More and more people are working from home for two reasons; better technology and the demand for a better work/life balance. But why stay cooped up in your office-come-spare bedroom when you could enjoy being in the midst of your garden. There is surely not a more inspiring setting anyway; a home away from home. What’s more, the options are endless, as sites like will attest. Converted stables, a repurposed shipping container, a glorified shed covered in glass. Whatever your taste there is a space for you. Basically, your garden is your oyster.

The Perfect Pergola
The thing that can take a normal patio away from the everyday and into a exceptional place is more often than not a pergola. It just gives your seating area an extra edge, it encloses the space to make it more personal and yet more grandiose. It gives your garden a centerpiece and one that encourages you to make your patio area your favorite room in the house. A seating area that is tucked away under a rosebush vine, a chandelier hanging down above a fire pit. That is how to bring a new dimension to your garden; a simple structure that offers up some truly charming options.

We’re Having A Tea Party
When we were young whippersnappers all we wanted to do was get outside and play because being inside was boring. There was nothing to do, and it wasn’t even that long ago. Nowadays, though, kids don’t want to go outside because there is so much distraction inside; television, phones, the internet, consoles, you name it. That’s where a gorgeous playhouse like the ones on can have real sway, a place for them to exercise their imaginations, to play and explore and get up to quant no good. What’s more, they don’t even have to be expensive to be good.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
