Hanging out with the birds and the bees
Since we last wrote about our Bee Bungalows and offered ideas to nurture native pollinators in the landscape, we noticed an uptick of interest and sales of our feeders and bungalows. We are thrilled that awareness is growing as to the importance of native birds and bees frequenting backyards and public gardens. Read more >
Garden Like the French
We’ve come to expect a lot from the French: a chic sense of style, impeccably executed food, fine wine, and an envious lifestyle. But garden design principles?
Say hello to the modern Tipi Trellis and Tomato Cage
After several years in the making, we couldn’t wait to debut our most recent trellis designs, the Annabel Tipi Trellis and the Geo Tomato Cage, at Dwell on Design in Los Angeles. This was our third year exhibiting at this giant design event, the ultimate indoor/outdoor playground for people sourcing modern living products, innovations, and ideas.

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.
Where flora & fauna meet design: creating an artful mini ecosystem with the Gracie Modern Arbor
One recent fall morning, photographer and digital media producer Adam Grossman looked out his kitchen window to admire his vine-covered Gracie Modern Arbor in the morning light.
The Horticult dishes up delicious dirt, design and culture.
Horticulture, art, design, music, fashion, food and drink. These "best things in life" intersect in a life well-lived, right? They also happen to intersect online, in the wonderfully inspiring blog The Horticult. This beautifully presented site is the creation of the horticulturally-hip and sartorially-savvy couple Chantal Aida Gordon and Ryan Benoit. As they put it:
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.
