Creating a beautiful outdoor space is important for homeowners and business owners alike. A striking outdoor space can make your home or business more inviting, boost curb appeal and boost a property’s value.
Aside from adding larger scale structures like fencing and pergolas you can add immense value by just adding a splash of color. A great way to get that color in a lovely and manageable way is with a planter or lattice panel.
Planters and lattice panels give flowers and other plants a contained space to grow and add character. These outdoor tools also make flowers easier to manage and move.
Climbing Plants on Lattice Panels
The charming Rosewood Classic Lattice Panel.
If you are short on horizontal space go vertical! Dress up an empty exterior wall with a simple lattice panel and let those climbing plants climb! All you have to do is install and start growing – many climbing plants will climb on their own and require only a little trimming as they grow.
Lattice is also a great thing to consider when creating any kind of partition. If privacy isn’t a huge factor skip the fence and add a larger scale lattice panel or lattice fence. This structural change will allow you some creativity – instead of having a plain fence you can have large space for a variety of lush climbing plants.
Container Gardens in Planters
Privacy with charm is shown here by the smart combination of stepped crisscross lattice panels fronted by planters.
If maneuverability is a big concern for you then a planter is a great choice in adding some color and life to your space. Available in a variety of shapes and sizes, planters are an easy all-weather way to add charm to an entryway, porch, or outdoor gathering space.
Planters can look great pretty much anywhere – even indoors! Purchasing a versatile and durable planter is ideal so you won’t have to worry about unsightly chips and splitting. Walpole planters are made from AZEK wood alternative, a material that is virtually maintenance free and won’t warp or rot like wood. These planters can weather just about anything and can be used all year long to add some color.
These public school pergolas are great for students and teachers alike.
Parents, teachers, and administrators alike are delighted that arriving pupils can stay comfortable even on rainy mornings under the solid roof covering of an impressive expanse of pergola. Substantial supporting columns atop stone bases add to the pleasing architectural design.
On the other side of the building high-schoolers can chill in an outdoor area not far from classrooms and the demands of a rigorous curriculum. This inviting seating area is defined by an extra-long custom pergola. A smart feature is the pergola’s solid roof, providing shelter no matter the weather.
For generations, Walpole has worked with builders, developers, and architects to create custom outdoor structures to exacting specifications and style demands. Today, our custom pergolas are handcrafted in low maintenance, long-wearing cellular PVC.

The ground might be frozen solid and snow may still be in the forecast but you can still get started planning your warm weather outdoor space. Before even breaking ground getting an idea of what you want out of an outdoor space is crucial. Do you need seating? Do you do a lot of cooking? Do you have a pool?
Define The Space
Whether rinsing off from a day at the beach or from tending your garden, there’s nothing more refreshing than a summertime outdoor shower.
If you are someone who loves to entertain then you probably want ample space for guests and plenty of seating. Outdoor furniture and a defined seating area are important aspects of the space for this use.
If you have a pool you might want something shaded to keep cool and perhaps an outdoor shower to minimize walks through the house. Think about the space and what kind of use it gets the most.
If you cook you might want to create a shaded pergola space with an outdoor kitchen!
Measure And Plan The Main Structure
A picturesque pergola.
A great place to start planning is by measuring and deciding on the focal point first. Think about what you need and map it out.
If you add a pergola how much space can you accommodate? What style suits your home? Planning the largest aspect of the space first will give you a more realistic idea of how much your space can handle.
