Raised Garden BedsRaised Garden Beds

Having a garden can bring pleasure. Growing your own vegetables offers you comfort that the produce you are putting on your table is fresh and wholesome. Flower beds bring hours of pleasure. You can enjoy them outside or you can cut the flowers and bring fresh flowers into your home. Taking care of our gardens isn’t always that much fun. Raised beds, when installed properly are wonderful. Weeding is minimal, planting is easy because the dirt isn’t as compacted and the raised box brings its own sense of style into the garden. Designs by Gentry can also set you up with a service company that will plant and maintain your garden boxes for a small monthly fee. This is a great service to offer the gardener in your life as a gift! Beautiful flowers or vegetable plants with no maintenance!

Decks and other Outdoor Spaces

A Gazebo, Deck, Dock or Balcony? What one of these fits your home and outdoor space? Designs by Gentry can add one to your home. Decking around a pool expands the space and offers more interest to the eye. Did you know if you have a second-story window, in most cases we can turn that into a door that opens up to a deck? How about a Hot Tub off the master or a quiet place to watch the sunsets? Would you like to create a place off the back of your home for an outdoor kitchen or Pergola? We can do that too. If you live on the water you know that access to be waters edge can sometimes be tricky.
