great picket fence. Name of the fence company? Where can I purchase? - I own a home in center city philadelphia that was built before the Civil War. This fence is perfect for my small patio area.

Isn't it great? It's a custom built cedar fence created from 1x4" stock

In looking back at this garden I now wonder if the variety of daylilly is known? Ruby Stella, maybe? Good color. If you can, please, and thank you.

Diatomacious earth, copper bands, slug traps (beer in a dish) or Ecosense brand slug bait will all work.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Genevieve Schmidt added this to Pacific Northwest Gardener: What to Do in April
Control SnailsYou'll want to protect your new starts and seedlings from the ravages of snails and slugs. It’s also smart to protect the shoots of emerging perennials, which are susceptible to damage. Dahlias, hostas (shown), bear’s breech, lilies and Canterbury bells can all benefit from spring applications of organic snail bait.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Cottage Garden Style
Create a cottage garden that's right for you. It makes sense to work with the space and the climate you have. If you live in the Pacific Northwest, great; you have a similar climate to England and you can probably recreate a Cotswold garden. In other climates, you'll need to be more creative. In the upper Midwest, plants like hostas function well as anchors in a cottage garden space.
Northwest. "You'll want to protect your new starts and seedlings from the ravages of snails and slugs," writes landscape designer Genevieve Schmidt.
