jblSHED

Didn’t make it to Brimfield this year? Don’t fret- jblSHED is stocked with Jean’s selection of antique garden furniture and ornaments. The items you find at “Shed” are certain to give your garden the enchantment or whimsy it needs to bring it from garden to gAHHHHHden.

Here are some pieces we’ve used to glam up our gardens…

The iron urns add an elegance and look right at home amongst the bird bath and bench in the parterre.

This terracotta tile was found on site and salvaged as a detail in this brick wall. White pine cone finials, are used as accents in the stairway. And an old iron lantern is hung from a tree and re-purposed as a birdhouse.

These are the types of pieces you will find at jblSHED. So come visit Jean’s “Shed” at 875 Main Street in Cambridge. http://jeanbrookslandscapes.com/antiques/

Spring Bulbs

With New England’s autumn fast approaching, it’s bulb planting time! Bulbs for spring are planted in autumn so that through a cold winter’s nap, they store enough energy for a display of blooming color.

Here at Jean Brooks Landscapes, we design spring bulb gardens that bloom from early spring to early summer and include both annually blooming tulips and perennial blooming daffodils, crocus and grape hyacinth- among others.

Let us know if you would like our help with your spring bulb design. info@jeanbrookslandscapes.com

And stay tuned for Jean’s very own picks and favorite bulb combos coming to a blog near you!
