Our garden hero: the Bee

At TerraTrellis we have a serious case of garden fever. It’s April, after all. Things are blooming, the weather is warming, and every time we check our inbox we’re reading about spring gardening tasks and swooning over garden landscapes, spring plants, and the upcoming edible bounty.

The beauty of a winter's garden

As a large part of the nation continues to be blanketed in snow, we here on the West Coast are reminded of our easygoing climate, year round planting opportunities, and perpetual state of renewal.  But there’s something to be said for the unique beauty of winter’s dormant nature as the soil quiets itself in a slumbering stillness.

Haute Horticulture

Like fashion, gardens are now transitioning from their vibrant summer looks into the more muted tones of the fall season. Our summer was loaded with horticultural and design inspiration, bursting with color and texture from diverse landscapes coast to coast.  Below is a photo journal of some magical summer moments; a mashup of images from private potager gardens, to island farms to spectacular public spaces. 

Steal this look: TerraTrellis as the canvas and the frame

Integrating a TerraTrellis provides artistic license to the home gardener to create a living work of art in the landscape.  In this case: a garden wall.  This is simply achieved by the thoughtful pairing of plant + trellis, with the TerraTrellis acting as a canvas.  Leslie, a garden-visionary client, sent us these photos of her latest inspired pairing: a stunningly beautiful Passion Flower (Passiflora) with our Ina Wall Trellis Sr. in Leaf color. Purple and chartreuse. We love how Leslie allows the vine grow wild playing with the trellis, twining as it may and meandering around the trellis frames.  Exquisite.
