SPE CIAL AD VER TISING SE C TION las can go anywhere you like: over the pool, around the garden or in a sophisticated entryway. Styles include straight and arched tops and can be custom-fabricated to fit your space. People are also adding more structures to their gardens, says Donahue, including bridges, obelisks, birdhouses, wind chimes and free-standing planters.

F EN CE S, GAT E S A ND P O ST S You’ve heard that good fences make good neighbors, but they also add good looks. Whether functional (to surround a pool or tennis court) or fashionable (to pretty up a space), Walpole has numerous style and material options including reproductions that pass muster with historical societies.

C E LLU L AR P V C This advanced material is the way everything is going, Donahue says. “Eight years ago 99 percent of our fences and pergolas were wood. Today, 95 percent are cellular PVC. And why not? It’s carefree, won’t rot, split or peel and has a twenty-ive-year warranty. It’s the perfect material for outdoor structures, and it looks and feels like wood. It’s not the shiny extruded vinyl of years ago.” The material was irst introduced as trim board under the brand name Azek. Since then Walpole has spent years researching and working with manufacturers and has even developed proprietary dyes. They use several manufacturers so they can craft the mate-rial into virtually anything — pergolas, fences, gates, even window boxes and planters.

S HAD E With the sun getting stronger more shade is a big request. “We can out it our pergo-las with retractable shade panels that run on a track, whether manual or motorized. Pull them out if you don’t want the sun and retract them if you do. They extend your time outside on hot glare-illed days or in a light rain,” Donahue says. ➤ RHODE ISLAND MONTHLY l MARCH 2014 129
