With all the rain we’ve been having lately, it’s hard to believe that we’re talking about how to keep moisture in your evergreens and shrubs over the winter (somebody please tell Mother Nature that it’s April showers), but indeed we are.

Exposed beams bring a rustic flair into the home, warming up crisp interiors and highlighting the architecture of a space.
