Natural and rustic wood decor has always been extremely popular year round for garden decorations and garden accessories.

Wood decor adds warmth and texture that often is missing when other products are used. Consider for instance the difference between a wooden trellis and a metal trellis. The wooden trellis can evoke a more cottage-garden-style look, while a metal trellis might fit in better with a more modernistic theme. Another factor to consider is that when reclaimed wood is incorporated in the decor, a piece of history is passed along as well.
