The nice weather has finally arrived!  It’s time to get out and absorb some vitamin D.

We have some fun, retro patio chairs now in stock.  These “motel” chairs have been in production in Canada since 1973!  They’re super comfy too.  And you’ll be the talk of the neighbourhood stirring up memories of these funky chairs perched in front of motels across the country.

Plant your containers and window boxes. Visit one of the members of the Peterborough and Area Garden Route to pick up your plants. Horlings, Griffins, Greenhouse on the River, Blossom Hill Nursery, Johnston’s Greenhouses, Gardens Plus and Keene on Gardens will have some beautiful plants to help enhance your space. More info:

Lay out your UV protected Mad Mat!  These mats are soft on your feet and come in many fun colours and patterns.  Also of note-these mats are UV protected which means they are long lasting and won’t shred apart in the first year. They are also thick meaning they don’t bunch up and become a trip hazard. Our customers rave about how long these mats last.

Add some fun decorations to bring some whimsy and wit to your space. The crows and ravens shown in this segment are by artist William Boyd Fraser from Millbrook. And lastly, invite friends over and enjoy! That’s what summer is all about.
