CLASSIC GARDEN STRUCTURES COMBINE QUALITY, BEAUTY AND VALUE
Homeowners looking for additional utility in their outdoor spaces typically are faced with two options, going cheap and buying something pre-fab that looks like it was made from machine-pressed margarine tubs. Or, blowing the entire budget on a custom built-on-site structure that may rival the house in terms of cost.
Thankfully, there is a third option that combines the best of the first two: Classic garden structures made by Limestone Trail of Beamsville, Ontario.
For the past 30 years, this hand- crafted manufacturer has made its mark by offering exceptional garden structures that deliver the beauty and durability of custom- made structures, but at a more reasonable cost. From garden sheds to cabanas, pool houses, cabins and even guest bunkies, coach houses, gazebos, and pavilions Limestone Trail uses top-quality wood products and durable finishes in all their buildings. As well, Limestone Trail offers ‘glass houses,’ wood and glass enclosed garden structures that provide both screened and waterproof protection against bugs and the elements.
“Our specialty is elegant, durable, classic garden s t ruc t ures; we l eave landscaping and foundation work to other professionals,” said Limestone Trail president John Verhey. “Call us when you are planning out your backyard renovation, and we can assist you in choosing the right garden structures for your purpose and budget.”
When it is time to build, Limestone Trail will send out their skilled team to install your classic garden structure efficiently and professionally. “Typically done in a day,” said Verhey.
Meanwhile, do-it-yourselfers (DIY) can install Limestone Trail structures with a minimum of tools and time, because the company’s DIY building kits come with completed wall and roof panels/trusses. “You just have to assemble the panels and trusses together, rather than having to build the shed from scratch,” Verhey said. “There are no tricky wood cuts to be done: It’s all simple assembly.”
A look through Limestone Trail’s web site gives a sense of what is possible with these classic garden structures. A wooden garden shed can be rustic, Victorian, or whimsical, but it is always built of topquality cedar with plenty of windows – making the shed a decorative garden element, rather than a plastic eyesore. Limestone Trail’s wooden cabanas, cabins, coach houses, guest houses, and pool sheds can be similarly small or go larger with pillars, porch roofs, and even cupolas. It all depends on what you want!
Meanwhile, this company’s open-air gazebos and pavilions provide outdoor protection within a shell of solid, wellcrafted cedar; making these structures as beautiful to look at as they are to shelter under. Add glass, and you have Limestone Trail’s Glass House that can extend summer well into autumn — and even provide comfortable shelter when the snow falls with the addition of an electric fireplace. They also come with screens; “providing a level of protection against mosquitoes and ticks that allow you to enjoy being outside without worry,” said Verhey.
Bill Marshall and his wife Joanne installed a Limestone Trail 15’ glass house when they moved to a cottage on the south shore of Lake Huron. “The views of Lake Huron are quite lovely from our glass house,” said Bill Marshall. “It’s become a key part of life here!”
As for the Marshalls’ experience in working with Limestone Trail to plan and build the glass house? “They were outstanding,” he replied. “We felt the price for the beauty and quality of the glass house was reasonable.”
“Limestone Trail fulfils your garden structure needs by helping you choose what’s right for you, building it to order, and installing it for you, or letting you do it yourself,” concluded John Verhey. “Our structures are great to look at and tough enough to withstand the worst weather that Canada can throw at them. They are durable investments in your garden that will last for years to come — at prices that will make sense to your wallet and your budget.”
Limestone Trail is located at 4696 Christie Drive, Beamsville ON. While taking a scenic drive through Niagara’s wine country, feel free to stop at the store to view display models, or talk to one of Limestone Trail’s knowledgeable staff.
“We will be at the Toronto National Home Show/Canada Blooms in March 2018,” Adds Verhey. “Heritage Court Booth H201— see you there.”
