INNOVATIONS IN GARDEN DESIGN
The garden is not traditionally a space associated with hi-tech gadgets, with most homeowners relying on green fingers and a trusty old mower. However, using technology in the landscape has become more common and easier than ever.
Here are a few of our favorite items that we highly recommend, as well as some fun tech gadgets that you can add to your outdoor entertainment area!
LOUVERED ROOF from EQUINOX
Rain or shine, hot or cold, Louvered Roof makes any outdoor space a year-round outdoor living area that’s perfect for entertaining or relaxing. With the touch of a button, louvers go from fully open to fully shut for the ultimate shade/cover solution. Since Equinox® Louvered Roof systems are manufactured from extruded aluminum, they offer greater durability than traditional plastic or fabric patio covers.
