The Edible Garden
It's not just the processed food, boxed and weird. Or the tasteless, hard produce at the mega-mart. The desire to grow our own food is for these reasons, sure, but it's about a lot more. Saving money is a good reason right off the bat! But also, it's great getting your hands in the good earth and growing something with your own hand. And of course, it's great to reward yourself with flavorful, nutritious fruits and vegetables picked fresh a few feet from your kitchen window.
Do you have a fruit tree in your yard? Have you tried putting in a potato hill? Or planting garlic? Raspberries? Figs? Rhubarb? How about native plant edibles like Paw Paw or Serviceberries? There's a lot of edible adventures out there! Visit Oakland and let us help grow your edible garden.
Bringing your Garden in to Focus
Fountains and garden statuary are typically sold as accents to the garden landscape. You know, ‘the extras’ after the important stuff goes in. However, the power to draw the eye, and focus attention, and add a beautiful contrast make a carefully selected fountain or statuary piece essential to the home garden.
In a spread out and diverse garden, a fountain can focus the eye and give the garden a center. Or it can turn an obscure corner of the garden into that secret garden nook. Statuary can be playful or give the garden a theme to build on. In a formal garden, the placement of fountains and statuary are important elements in the design.
Oakland Nurseries carry hundreds of classic and contemporary designed fountains and statuary pieces. We buy from the industries' best manufacturers; Campania, Masserelli, Henry Studios and Elegant Earth, who in turn get their inspirations from the world over. Stop in and see our selection.
