I recently read an article titled Pools, Patios, and Gardens to Die For which featured some pretty spectacular homes. The $25 million Aspen, CO home includes a patio, heated pool, and breathtaking mountain view. For ONLY $4.8  million, you could go with the Beverly Hills home with a custom fire pit, pool, and hot tub (pictured above). These homes and backyards are gorgeous, but they are also out of the price range for most Americans. Recreate these scenes at your own home with the products below!

  • Steamer Deck Chairs are a beautiful way to lounge pool side. They will create a similar look to the Aspen home’s pool area. They offer a multi-position back, beautiful durability, and exceptional strength in their Eucalyptus frame. They will last for years and are a great investment. Add your favorite cushions for colorful custom look.
  • The Malibu home mentioned in the article above ($3 million) features an sprawling garden and impressive greenhouse. Create a stunning garden at your own home with the addition of pergolas, garden arbors, and hobby greenhouses. Flowering and lush green plants will create an eye catching escape.
  • Love the pirate ship play house in the Westlake Village home? Add a wooden swing set with tons of features to create fun and adventure for your little ones. A rope ladder, monkey bars, rock wall, telescope, steering wheel, and spiral slides will encourage creative play and healthy exercise year round.
  • Custom fire pits, like the one in the multi-million dollar Beverly Hills home, can cost thousands of dollars to install. Produce a warm, inviting atmosphere on your patio with an easy to use, pre-built fire pit or fire bowl. They are affordable, durable, and easy to operate.

Spring Gardening Starts Now: 3 Tips to Get You Started

Snow may be on the ground and temperatures well below freezing, but backyard gardening enthusiasts are already looking ahead to spring.  If you haven’t already done so, now is the time to start making your gardening plans for the upcoming season.  Here are a few tips to get you going:

  • Gardening Goals:  What do you want to grow?  Annuals, perennials, vegetables, fruits?  The options are limitless, but your space and time are not.  Determine how much space you have available in your garden, what you’d like to achieve with your gardening (beauty, food, or both), and how much time you are willing and able to put into creating and maintaining the garden.  Your answers to these questions will help you immensely as you go forward with your garden plans.
  • Seed Selection:  If your garden plan includes starting indoors with seedlings, start browsing seed catalogs now, and place your orders before the end of January.  When it’s time to transplant your seedlings into the garden, they’ll have had enough time to develop.
  • A Place for Gardening:  If you don’t already own a hobby greenhouse, you should consider obtaining one, especially if you want to extend the growing season and have a dedicated place for gardening activities.  Hobby greenhouses come in all sizes, so starting small is a good way to get a taste for what greenhouse gardening can offer.  Greenhouses provide a gardener with much more flexibility in terms of what can be grown and when.  They are especially attractive to gardeners who live in cooler climates where the growing season is shorter.
