Garden Station: Don't forget about the transition between your home and garden. This partially enclosed space ensures that dirt, mud, boots, and gardening gear don't block a side entry or create a mess inside the house. A solid roof offers protection for the elements while a lattice peg wall and concrete make storage and cleaning a breeze.
Turn a plain corner of your home into a colorful statement of beauty.
