Garden Structure Ideas

Enhance your outdoor living space with garden structure ideas that are not only easy to build, but also beautiful and may add to your home’s overall value. An excellent material to work with is Mendocino redwood.

Consider an arbor installed over an existing redwood deck. Arbors can provide shade as well as an interesting visual focal point. If you don’t already have a redwood deck, consider building one to add livable space to your home and backyard.

Additional garden structure ideas include garden pathways, flower beds, and vegetable gardens. Redwood benderboard can be used as a border for garden pathways. These garden pathways, in addition to connecting parts of your yard, can also serve as unifying visual elements.

Adding flower beds to your yard is another great garden structure idea. Family members of all ages can participate in the planning and building of flower beds made of redwood dimensional lumber. The versatility of redwood is legendary and means you can build a flower bed in little time with a few simple steps. Your family will enjoy the rewards of your work with fresh flowers that can be shared with friends and neighbors.

An additional garden structure idea is building a vegetable garden for your family to enjoy. Healthy vegetables from your own garden can be very rewarding, and last for several months. Strong, yet lightweight, redwood dimensional lumber is the perfect material for the job. Easily cut, sawed, and drilled, building vegetable gardens with redwood is a project that even the novice builder can easily accomplish.
