New Products – Green Bricks, A Modern BBQ & Pretty Pots

I have a quick little round up of some exciting products that crossed my desk recently

green pavers
Green Bricks — An easy (*looking*- I have not used them) way to make that sea paving a little more permeable and a whole lot  prettier while you are at it.  The bricks hold dirt and fit with other standar pavers so that what ever you choose to plant, it has the structural integrity of the pavers themselves.

“Standard grass stones are not easy to combine with attractive looking brick pavement, and they often don’t meet the technical requirements of a road used by traffic.” — I am excited to see these and all the interesting designs that will surely come along with them in more driveways and parking lots!

Give me an old fashion Weber grill and a bag of charcoal and I am in BBQ heaven,  but give me a really pretty spin on the Weber — with gorgeous grates to make my grillings look nice too — well then I might reach BBQ nirvana.

And taking a turn away from modernism…I am loving the beautiful earthy beauty of quality of  Esther Studio‘s plant pots.   They come in three color ways….and if the pretty factor doesn’t make you fall in love with them — listen to this…

“Esther Pottery was created by landscape designer Steve Siegrist and his wife, sculptor Renèe Lotenero, both avid collectors of rare cacti and succulents. Steve and Renèe began creating their own pots in 2009 with the help of their 11 year old son Ethan. Soon, friends and fellow plant collectors began requesting pots and before long, a family business was born. (Named Esther, as a phonetic blend of all their names, Ethan, Steve and Renèe.) Each pot is unique and created by hand in their Los Angeles studio.” – Esther Studio

DIY: Picnic Table Wheelies

Such an easy DIY is hard to pass up when the result is a huge improvement.   I have two big picnic tables in my garden — they are so heavy that my husband and I have a hard time picking them up and moving them together.   Now the proud owner of a new ride on…

Remembering Neil Armstrong: Gardens 1969

When I was kid and adults pulled out the standard kid question (“What do you want to be when you grow up?“), I always gave them a pretty standard kid answer (for the 1970’s) – an astronaut.  Back then, I had every intention of being either the first person on Mars or the first woman on the…

Obama’s from Hawaii…

So with no input from you readers, I have decided that for the sake of our 50 Natives postings…Obama will be from Hawaii….the plants are more exotic (and therefore slightly more interesting to me) – Please Illinois – take no offense. To mark one week till the big day, I am working on that one…
