Welcome to the sixth installment of my special summertime “All decked out” series of posts. The topic? A part of the home where the great outdoors and the green indoors meet: your patio, porch, lanai, deck, terrace, or whatever you choose to call it. So far, I’ve recommended outfitting your outdoor space eco-friendly outdoor decor items, planters, non-gruesome bug traps, alfresco eatin’ and drinkin’ wares, and low-impact lamps and lanterns.
Today I'm spotlighting a quintessential gardening tool used to quench the thirst of parched patio plants: the humble watering can. Below are eight eye-catching cans made from recycled and/or recyclable materials. Fill 'em up — ideally with reclaimed water captured in a rain barrel — and go to town ...
