Great Garden Combo: Rose + Clematis for Small-Space Impact

We all need somebody to lean on. And when a rose supports a climbing vine, the results can totally transform a small garden Full Story

Thank you so much for including my double clematis and rose combo here. Clematis combined with other plants is one of my favorite planting design combos. The client who has the combo pictured loves strong dramatic color--hence the red-violet, violet, red scheme.

Capeanner it may just be that you inadvertently selected a combination which wasn't a good match. I think you'd find the book I recommended very helpful and you should be able to find it in your library

There is a special 'outdoor' foam for cushions that has bigger air pockets and allows it to dry faster than regular 'indoor' foam. Use this, set your cushions on their sides after a rain in the sun and you'll get a ton of use from them. Often, we design storage areas into patios and decks that allow those who wish to, to store their cushions in a dry place. Either way, don't let the rain keep you from comfortable outdoor seating and enjoying a furnished outdoor room.

Inhomedecorandmore, I adore your vintage patio set, and the colorful cushions, too! SCORE!
They were all the rage when I was a kid. My mom even used her set ( modular love seat, 2 chairs, glass coffee & end tables, and glass dining set) in the family room of one of her houses in 1963. I have no idea when she bought them.. 50's maybe?
Guess what? She still has that set on her covered patio. It's been re painted and new cushions have been professionally made a number of times over the years. I really like how they used to make em with that lip that the big chunky cushions fit into. Wrought iron just can't be beat for longevity . I have tried to talk her out of it a number of times, but she just gives me the " you'll have to wait til I die " line:(
My " auntie " ( mom's neighbor) still has her set too.
Those sets are STILL the MOST COMFORTABLE, aren't they?

The idea of a steel structure to hold the drapes around our deck could be done using the concept in this picture.
