Classic garden elements – Adding unique structures to your landscape

This is a just a sampling of some of the garden structures we create in-house here in Minden Ontario, at Wall Flower Studio – Garden obelisks, vertical gardens, and bee hotels.

Obelisks are perfect for vertical gardening which adds height and an added growing dimension to any garden. We especially love them for the winter interest that they add. Our garden structures are constructed of high quality timber and we offer a variety of paint colours to choose from.  One can grow almost any herbaceous climbing plant on these sturdy, simple, classic and elegant structures. 6516101931_34f3dd889f_o

Our rustic vertical wall gardens are very popular, with good reason! Presently, we have 3 sizes available but we are working on creating different shapes, as well.  These space-saving, artistic plant containers are a work of living art. They can be planted with succulents, herbs and more. The only limit is one’s imagination!17240632025_41d3dcb7b2_o

 

 

 

We are thrilled to offer solitary bee hotels. 1795607_10153309127676488_1229602207476800234_n

Each one is unique and one of a kind, but they all offer a habitat for our native bees and other beneficial insects.  They can be mounted on a fence, a tree or anywhere you like.

Bees are vital for cross pollination of flowers, vegetables crops  and fruit trees not only for suburban gardens but also for farms,
parklands, plant nurseries and community gardens.
One way we can all help is to re-introduce these often unknown  little pollinators back into our environment and our gardens.

Succulents and moss – Perfect for any container!

Succulents and moss just seem to go together like peas & carrots! It’s just as fun finding unusual containers as it is to plant them up!
