Welcome to the second-to-last installment of “All decked out," a series of of posts where I tackle a part of the home where the great outdoors and the green indoors meet: your patio, porch, lanai, deck, or whatever you might call it. In a months-long quest to help you reach eco-friendly deck-dom, I've covered planters, non-gruesome bug traps, alfresco eatin’ and drinkin’ wares, decor items, low impact lamps and lanterns, eye-catching watering cans, outdoor furnishings including chairs, sofas, and eco-swings and hammocks, low-VOC stains and sealants, bleach-free cleaners, outdoor fireplaces, and an item that makes lounging on a back deck or porch complete: a good book. Phew.
Before next week's 14th and final installment, I thought I'd take a look back and round up some of the best and brightest deck-ready products that I've featured over the summer. Enjoy.
