Large Table Top Terrarium

As you may know, we love terrariums, so we thought we’d continue sharing some of our favorites we’ve discovered over the years.
Large Table Top Terrarium
This one is from First & Main Design Studios’ Curators Collection- Spring/Summer 2013. It’s the Large Table-top Display Box/Greenhouse/Terrarium and measures 16.5″ Tall x 14″ Wide and 11″ Deep. Lots of room for the fairies to have a big party!

Happy Earth Day!

Earth Day April 22, 2013

Every year on April 22, more than one billion people take part in Earth Day. Across the globe, individuals, communities, organizations, and governments acknowledge the amazing planet we call home and take action to protect it.

At Enchanted Acorn, we strongly believe in our responsibility to our planet and each other. Our various gardens are designed to include native plants and prairie grasses; we use solar powered lighting and garden features every chance we get and we are installing even more rain barrels to do our part in helping the water conservation efforts.

By providing food, water, cover and places for wildlife to raise their young, our gardens are a certified wildlife habitat and included with more than 150,000 other Certified Wildlife Habitat™ sites across the country. In just a few easy steps, you too can turn your backyard, balcony or patch of grass into a habitat for wildlife.

Not only are we are heavily into recycling in our personal households, but a large portion of our business is built upon the idea of recycling the gifts that Mother Nature has left behind. The branches, moss, twigs, nuts, shells, hulls, flowers and other natural materials we utilize in our art are all collected after they’ve already fallen.

We’re also proud to upcycle and repurpose many man-made plastics in our products instead of seeing them sit in landfills.

One of our main motto’s is: “recycle, repurpose, reimagine”

Hypertufa

Hypertufa was developed in the 1930s to replicate the stone troughs that were popular among English gardeners in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The lightweight stand-ins were not only easier to come by, but also easier to transport. Thanks to their porous nature, the pots were ideal for plants needing good drainage. Hypertufa containers are still practical in the garden and simple to create.
