Some of you might remember the pretty flowering pergola displays we had along the freeway at our nursery’s former site. We now have 14 of those displays back up, with two flower baskets hung on each, all along the east side of our growing fields and in view of the freeway. I think they look fantastic… and it sure does take me back in time!
You can create a similar project at your home or business with one, two, or more poles and a simple irrigation system.
In a straight line down the east edge of the property, we dug and set the 14 flower basket displays.
You can set them with concrete in the hole if you want the poles to be a permanent decoration. When setting, make sure the poles are vertically plumb. We then dug a trench to run the lines for the ½” black plastic pipe to each flower display, the plastic tubing running all the way to the top of the poles. Any plumbing department at your local hardware store can get you set up with what you need for this simple drip irrigation system.
Be prepared to get lots of compliments from your neighbors if you take on a cool summer project like this!
Oh! One more new feature you can see from the freeway; a rather large Red Laceleaf Japanese Maple. This tree is at least 40 years old. Our company President, Joel, planted this tree with his Grandmother at her home when he was 4 years old!
Stop in soon and see for yourself what we have been up to lately!
