Comments about Product: We purchased several of these blinds to enable us to use the furnished porch when the late, hot, afternoon sun shines on that porch. They are easy to install, easy to use and look great. Our neighbors have already placed an order for their porch.

Summer has never been cooler.
Comments about Product: We decided this summer will be THE summer that we'll keep our family room cool. The room is designed to take in the mountain view to the east, so it has several large (5'x6) windows. But, having so many windows facing east/southeast makes for a lot of summer sun coming in and warming the room. (Summer temps are in the 90-100s here.) Barring replacing the windows, we tried using insulated curtains on the inside of the windows to keep the heat out, which help a little. Then a friend said the key is to keep the heat off the windows from the outside. We took his advice and ordered sunshades for all four window exteriors, including one for the glass sliding door. The room now stays comfortable throughout the day! The shades look nice from the outside, too. We'll be purchasing 4 more for the living room. I do wish they came in more sizes, though.

GREAT window shade
Comments about Product: The shade was so easy to put up and looks great. The price was amazing. This product looks just like the ones I was going to buy and their price was over a $150 dollars more. I can't believe we found this product at such a great price. If you need shade and/or privacy this is the shade for you. Can not wait to get the next catalog to see what I can buy next
Comments about Product: I got a pair of these to block the morning sun on our deck. They look very nice now that they're up, but my husband had a very difficult time installing the screws (phillip's head) into the southern yellow pine posts, which is very hard wood. The screwheads stripped and he wound up using a flat screw that could be tightened with a wrench to get them in. I don't know yet how the shades will hold up in wind or bad weather. They are lightweight and have loops to secure the bottom, so we will find out later if they are sufficient. The pull cord sticks sometimes so you have to be careful not to yank on it, as I suppose it could break.
Perfect addition to our sunroom
Comments about Product: I had been looking at these shades for a few years and finally ordered them; and it was well worth the wait. We really love the way they look in our sunroom and they were very easy for my husband to install.

Great Customer Sercie, Thanks, Suzanna
Comments about Product: So far it really blocks the Florida sun. Hope it keeps the courtyard cool during summer months starting in July..

Opening has to be exact to hang shade
Comments about Product: Brackets do not allow for hanging against patio beams. Can not hang if posts more than the width of shade without adding your own L brackets, then no post to secure chain safety device.
By patiently waiting
Comments about Product: Ordered 2 6X6 Meadow shades and 1 8X6 meadow shade. Received 1 8X6 and 1 6X6 meadow shades and 1 6X6 shade of another color. Returned the incorrect color and I'm currently awaiting (1 week now) the return of the correct 6X6 meadow shade at which time I can install and see the quality, fitting etc.

Functional and attractive
Comments about Product: I bought 2 of these. They were very simple to install. The color on the website was very accurate, and they look great in the location. One rolls down very smoothly, but the other one is a bit rougher. They are a great improvement over what we previously had, and we're very pleased with them.
Comments about Product: I put this outside my dining room window which faces west. The afternoon sun has always been brutal, even with expensive interior shades. This blocks the heat very effectively.
Comments about Product: I ordered these for my outdoor porch and we are thoroughly enjoying them. They were fairly easy to hang and keep the sun off the deck. Great product for the price, I will order these again.
I am also ordering the outdoor curtains to put on each side to finish the look.
Comments about Product: We had problems attaching the hardware, but we aren't handy that way. It has rings at the bottom to tie it down, but nothing to attach to them. Suggestions would be nice. We haven't had it long enough to rate the effectiveness or wear, but they look much nicer than what we were using.
Liked it so much ordered another one!
Comments about Product: Put this up on our lower patio and its perfect to keep the sun out of our eyes and allow us to sit out there longer and also gives us more privacy! Very nice shade!
Not what I expected
Comments about Product: We thought this shade was similar to the ones we bought two years ago. Those were green and white with a slight beige on either side of the green stripe. Nope, this one looks like a cheap plastic bright green with bright white. Not a match.
Comments about Product: We put this on our covered back deck and my husband had it up in less then 30 minutes. have not had the chance to use it much but it looks nice and is exactly what we wanted and expected. Very quick delivery

Love the Window Shades!
Comments about Product: we can eat dinner on our beautiful porch without our sunglasses on!
GREAT FOR PORTCH SITTING
Comments about Product: WE HAVE A BACK PORTCH WITH 7 WINDOWS - WE BOUGHT
TWO OF THESE SHADES, ORDERED ANOTHER ONE, THEN
FOUND WE NEEDED ANOTHER WITH THE AFTERNOON SUN
WE ORDERED THE LAST ONE AND ARE SO HAPPY WITH THE
RESULT - COOLER AND SHADIER GREAT ENJOYMENT
Well worth it
Comments about Product: This really has cooled my front entry area. It's a room about 10' square which gets full west sun and has always stayed too hot to use in the evenings. It's much more comfortable now. The shade is attractive and was easy to install. So far, no negatives.
not crazy about the bead rope
Comments about Product: address was in correct and first order was sent back..had to re-order. Bought simular blinds several years back. Loved them heavy duty attachment..heavy cord to pull up blind..heavy attachemnt was included to secure to wood frame. Did not have to go buy anything to secure the blinds. They still are great after 4 years. I Was very disappointed to get these but kepted them. will not buy this brand again..please review the blinds you use to sell and get rid of this brand...
Just exactly what we wanted.
Comments about Product: We needed a shade that could cut the west sun hitting the front porch in the afternoons. This shade does the job and looks good in the process.

Less than Stellar
Comments about Product: The blinds function as they should, the material is somewhat attractive and cottage-like at a distance but the material is rather coarse plastic, not the mellow canvas it is meant to replace. They do admit some light through which is very nice. The plastic hardware attached to the bottom of the blinds that secures the fabric to the bottom support came off after only one week, but is easily secured with tape or weather proof adhesive. Regardless of the amount of weather your setting receives they will come apart but with a little effort are easily fixed. All in all, a little cheap but they do the job.
excellent product, good quality
Comments about Product: delivered on time, in good shape . installed in less than 30 minutes

hides the neighbors
Comments about Product: We bought these shades mainly to have more privacy from our neighbors when they are out on their deck. We also use them to block afternoon sun. The one negative is they blow around. I know you can secure them down with something because they come with metal loops on the bottom, but I'm not interested in putting something permanent on our railing. A heavier bottom would help. Maybe attaching some weights on the bottom when you don't want this to happen.?.

Great--if you read between the lines
Comments about Product: Installation instructions say it can be wall mounted, but the clutch is definitely set up for ceiling mount. Put it up and the chain was difficult to operate. Then noticed that the plastic caps on the brackets come off, and discovered 4 small screws. Took whole thing down and removed screws--rotated the clutch mechanism one quarter turn and screwed it back together. Then had to climb up and reinstall the whole thing.
Comments about Product: [...] I had already recycled the box, so returning was not an option.
No more Sunny Back Porch
Comments about Product: I have great concern with the cord lasting in our desert sun. The green strip looks beautiful in our gazebo area...Io I
liked it so much I purchased 2 more
Comments about Product: would definitely recommend this product for the price.[...]
Love these shades, very clean looking
Comments about Product: Very well made for the price.
Comments about Product: [...] The shades are just perfect for the late Western sun here in Phoenix and now the patio can be enjoyed. A couple shades are just a bit crooked on the rod so when they are rolled up there is not a uniform appearance an when totally extended one has a 'pulled' look. The caps do not stay on if one uses the little toggle to anchor it to the post when windy, that I don't like!

Great shades for our screened-in porch!
Comments about Product: We are using the shades on our screened-in porch for both privacy and sun blocking. They were very easy to install and "disappear" when rolled up. They are very attractive when rolled down. The shades are very light and are easy to raise and lower with the chain. We installed small hooks into the wooden frames at the bottom of our screens so we could secure the shades (when it's breezy)using the rings on the shade bottoms. We love these shades!

COOL ON THE PORCH
Comments about Product: WE BOUGHT THESE SHADES HOPING THEY WOULD MAKE OUR PORCH
COOLER AND SHADIER.... THEY FILL THE BILL - WE LOVE THEM AND WOULD ORDER AGAIN IF WE HAD THE NEED. THEY ARE
ALSO ATTRACTIVE AND WE HAVE HAD A LOT OF COMPLIMENTS
By Mimi and Pup
This is the cat's meow! Super!
Comments about Product: We use our shade to block the early morning sun when we are on our deck. We love the soft and soothing 'meadow' color.
The material is very lightweight and does as advertised.
Exactly the product I was looking for.
Comments about Product: In late afternoon this screen filters the sun and dinning on my porch is now very comfortable.
looks good but limited function
Comments about Product: can only be used on nonbreezy days. The lower part with anchor rings pulls loose easily. Does good job of blocking sun.
By Old Ben
Well worth the price
Comments about Product: Met our needs and was a snap to install and operate & much less trouble than the wooden slat blind it replaced.
Love these Awnings
Comments about Product: They are great.. Love the way thy look on my porch. Cuts the sun a lot and still lets air flow.. Hard to put up on my aluminium awning, but did figure it out.. Worth the work... Attaching these to wooden porch would be a snap.. A little tricky to pull up and down, but once you get the hang of it no problems... So glad that I waited for them to come in, worth the wait...

Patio window shades
Comments about Product: I love the cords on the shades. They are easy to pull shade up and down to the desired length.
By Donnelle Sew's
I Would Buy This Product Again!
Comments about Product: Half of our house get extremely hot and bright, that is until I received Plow & Hearth's Window Shade. Not only is it not so bright, but it's also cooler in that part of the house. I chose the Mocha color, which I really love, especially since it compliments the color of our house.
I highly recommend Plow & Hearth if you want quality and sustainability in your products for home and yard. Thank you Plow & Hearth!

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
