Transforming the Equipment Barn Porch

One of my favorite pastimes is gardening. I am a very serious gardener and am always thinking about ways to improve the care and maintenance of all my plants and trees.

Here at Bedford, I have a large collection of tropical specimens. Because I live in a four-season region, during colder months it’s vital these plants move indoors where the temperature and humidity levels can be controlled. Fortunately, I am able to keep them in high-grade greenhouses, where they can continue to thrive all year long. Earlier this year, I decided to enclose a nook on one side of my Equipment Barn to provide additional greenhouse storage space and to house a few of my taller potted plants. Closing off an already existing covered area is a good, space-saving solution for keeping plants well-protected from the harsh winter elements.
