4 POSTSFive Easy Ways to Use a Trellis
Installing a trellis is an easy project that can make a positive impact on the style of your home. With a variety of styles, sizes, and colors available on the market, they are being used for much more than gardening!
Use it with a Garden Planter
Stake a trellis in a barrel, planter, or pot to add height to your garden space. It’s a great way to support climbing and tall flowers that naturally struggle with having the space to grow to their full potential.
Mount it to a Wall
Attach your trellis to a wall in an entryway or near a window for climbing flowers. Use a trellis bracket to offset the trellis from the wall and give your climbing plants space to wrap.
Create a Privacy Screen
Stake two or more tall trellises side-by-side and position climbing flowers against him, creating a natural privacy screen in any area around your home. Place the trellises along the edge of a patio or courtyard for a secluded vibe. Or use them to conceal an AC unit or other outdoor fixture.
Make it a Design Statement
A trellis can elevate your outdoor aesthetics and fill in any spaces. Place in front of a blank wall to create an eye-catching accent and add some roses for a pop of color.
Add Decor to Your Garden
Stake a trellis in your garden as a plant support or accent piece to add height and dimension. Make your flowers the focal point, choose a minimal hog wire or metal grid trellis that blends into the landscape.

4 POSTSFive Undesirables You Can Hide with Artificial Landscape Rocks
A backyard should encourage you to relax and unwind, however, the look of that metal utility box does not. A great way to hide any unnatural feature on your property is to use an artificial landscape rock to cover it up; a lightweight, yet durable faux rock that comes in various styles, shapes, and colors (that are hand-painted for the most realistic look; no two rocks are the same). Also, they are finished with a UV-resistant coat which limits fading and discoloration from the sun. Here are six undesirables you can hide with Outdoor Essentials artificial landscape rocks:
Our artificial landscape rocks are hollow, so you can slip them over an electrical box, wellhead or any other unsightly device sticking up in your yard.
2. Sewer Cleanouts
A sewer cleanout can be a lifesaver if there’s a blockage in your pipes, but that does not mean you need to leave exposed. Because our artificial rocks are designed and painted to look natural, they add an attractive addition to your landscape.
3. Sprinkler Heads
When you plan to host guests at your home, an artificial rock can hide sprinkler heads when they are not in use. They are easy to pick up and move (our medium-sized rock weighs less than 10 pounds!).
4. Drain Tiles
Our artificial landscape rocks are made out of a drillable material, so you can cover up the drain in the yard and still run a hose to it. Plus, they are wind-resistant and will not blow away in bad weather.
5. Electrical Outlets
Electrical outlets are normally not seen as a design feature for a home’s exterior. Our artificial rocks are great for covering that undesirable from sight.
Real rocks are heavy and will not cover your outdoor undesirables. Outdoor Essentials artificial landscape rocks are hollow, durable, and lightweight. Check out all our sizes, styles and colors.
4 POSTSFive Tips for Designing a Small Garden Space
Designing a garden in a small space may seem limiting, but it is all about how you utilize that area. You can make the most of it by taking advantage of vertical space and choosing products that maximize planting and storage capacity. The key to creating a functional small garden area is to style it with purposeful products; it will feel less cluttered and more intentional.
1. Small Trellis for a Flowerpot
Haven 48 in. Walnut-Tone Cape Town Trellis Homestead 36 in. Walnut-Tone Pot Trellis (2-Pack)
If you have flowers in small to medium-sized pots on your balcony or patio, one solution is to keep it simple by adding a small trellis in or behind them. It encourages vines to grow upward (instead of outward) and adds purposeful décor to your space. Our Haven Cape Town Trellis is designed to be styled with one rectangular or multiple small flowerpots. And this Homestead Pot Trellis is perfect with flowerpots or staked in an elevated garden planter.
2. Take Advantage of Vertical Space
Haven 72 in. Black and Cedar-Tone Ladder Trellis
Stubborn climbing plants that want to grow outwards often take over the entire space, which is not ideal for small gardens. One way to control the vines is to take advantage of your vertical space by incorporating a tall trellis. Plus, it will give the appearance of a bigger space. This two-toned trellis is the perfect modern take on a traditional trellis and is six feet tall for maximum functionality.
3. Incorporate a Planter with Storage

Not only is garden space limited, but storage capacity is as well. Create a designated spot for your watering can and gardening gloves by incorporating a planter with a shelf. This way, you’re creating both a decorative and functional area. Choosing one with vinyl legs and corners is the perfect low-maintenance option for outdoor spaces.
4. Small Planter for Small Corners

A simple way to style your small garden space is to incorporate a small, elevated garden planter. A 2x2 size or smaller is perfect to style in the corner with a chair or end table. It gives you the ability to add a pop of color and functionality to your balcony or patio. Have your choice between Weathered Brown, Antique White, and Barn Wood Gray to best fit your style!
5. Go Natural for Organic Gardening

To grow organic fruits and vegetables, design your small space with an untreated cedar elevated garden planter. Choose one that is long and narrow so you can grow all the essentials in one place and still have room on your balcony/patio to include other functional products.
Designing a garden in a small space can be difficult if you’re not sure where to start. Choose products that are functional with their size and shape. And most importantly, take advantage of your vertical space. Share your completed small garden places on Facebook and Instagram and tag us in your photos!
