In the South, they know a thing or two about staying cool and creating magical gardens. Atlanta fencing contractors have been building iron fences around gardens for years. Local carpenters have added to the architecture of the South by building whimsical garden houses and arbors. Wouldn't you like to create some shade in your garden? You can create a shady outdoor living area by taking a cue from the South: Build an arbor; put up a decorative fence. It's a fun project that can be done in a weekend.
