Enhancing Outdoor Spaces with Weather Protectors, Planters & Pots, and Water Features

Outdoor Spaces with Weather Protectors
In today’s fast-paced world, creating a serene and inviting outdoor space has become essential for relaxation and rejuvenation. Whether you have a sprawling garden, a cozy balcony, or a tiny patio, there are three key elements that can elevate your outdoor experience: weather protectors, planters & pots, and water features. These components not only add aesthetic appeal but also serve practical purposes, making your outdoor haven even more enjoyable.

Weather Protectors: Shelter from the Elements

The weather can be unpredictable, and without adequate protection, your outdoor space may be rendered unusable during rain or shine. This is where weather protectors come into play. From pergolas and canvas awnings at ESA to gazebos and umbrellas, these additions shield you from the harshest weather conditions.

Pergolas, with their open lattice design, provide partial shade and create a beautiful interplay of light and shadow. They are ideal for growing climbing plants like vines and roses, adding a touch of nature to your outdoor area.

Gazebos, on the other hand, offer complete shelter from the elements. They are perfect for hosting outdoor gatherings, providing ample seating space and protection from both sun and rain.

For smaller spaces or more flexibility, consider investing in a high-quality umbrella or retractable awning. These options can be easily adjusted to provide shade or allow sunlight based on your preferences. Modern designs and durable materials make them not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing.

Planters & Pots: Greenery at Your Fingertips

Adding greenery to your outdoor space can transform it into a lush oasis. However, limited ground space or poor soil quality may pose challenges. Planters and pots are the solution to these issues, allowing you to cultivate a garden no matter the constraints.

Choose planters and pots that suit your style and the space available. From rustic terracotta to sleek, modern designs, there are options to match every taste. Hanging planters and wall-mounted pots are great for vertical gardening, making the most of limited space.

One of the benefits of using planters is the ability to move your plants around. This flexibility allows you to experiment with different layouts and arrangements, adapting to the changing seasons and your evolving preferences. It also makes maintenance easier, as you can move delicate plants indoors during harsh weather.

Consider the types of plants that thrive in your climate and the amount of care you can provide. Whether you choose vibrant flowers, aromatic herbs, or low-maintenance succulents, planters and pots give you the freedom to cultivate a diverse garden.

Water Features: Serenity in Motion

Water features, such as fountains, ponds, and waterfalls, bring a sense of tranquility to outdoor spaces. The sound of flowing water has a calming effect, making your outdoor haven the perfect place to unwind after a long day.

Fountains are a popular choice for their aesthetic appeal and soothing sound. They come in various sizes and styles, from ornate tiered fountains to minimalist, contemporary designs. Solar-powered fountains are an eco-friendly option, requiring no electrical connections.

Ponds create a more natural atmosphere, attracting wildlife like frogs and birds. You can adorn them with water lilies, koi fish, and aquatic plants to enhance their beauty. Ponds can also serve as reflective surfaces, doubling the visual impact of your garden.

If you have a sloping garden or want to add drama, consider a waterfall. Waterfalls not only provide a picturesque focal point but also aerate the water, benefiting aquatic life in ponds.

Maintaining water features may seem daunting, but modern systems come with built-in filtration and recirculation, reducing the effort required to keep them clean and functional.

Creating Harmony

The true magic of outdoor spaces lies in the harmonious integration of weather protectors, planters & pots, and water features. Imagine sitting beneath a pergola, surrounded by lush greenery from hanging planters, while the soothing sound of a fountain fills the air. This synergy elevates your outdoor experience to a whole new level.

To achieve this harmony, consider the following tips:

  1. Balance: Ensure a balance between the three elements. Too many planters may clutter your space, while an oversized weather protector might overwhelm it.
  2. Theme: Choose a cohesive theme for your outdoor area. This could be Mediterranean, Zen, or a tropical paradise, and select weather protectors, planters, and water features that align with that theme.
  3. Maintenance: Regular maintenance is key to preserving the beauty and functionality of these elements. Clean water features, tend to your plants, and inspect weather protectors for wear and tear.
  4. Lighting: Outdoor lighting can accentuate these features, making your outdoor space equally enchanting at night. Use subtle, energy-efficient lighting to highlight specific areas.
  5. Personalization: Finally, don’t forget to personalize your outdoor space. Add comfortable seating, outdoor rugs, and decorative elements like cushions and lanterns to make it truly yours.

In conclusion, weather protectors, planters & pots, and water features are essential components for creating a captivating and inviting outdoor space. They offer protection from the elements, bring nature closer, and provide a calming ambiance. By integrating these elements thoughtfully and maintaining them with care, you can transform your outdoor area into a haven of relaxation and beauty, where you can escape the stresses of daily life and connect with nature.

Los Angeles

Los Angeles (US/lɔːsˈænələs/ (listenlawss AN-jəl-əs; Spanish: Los Ángeles [los ˈaŋxeles]lit. ’The Angels’), often referred to by its initials L.A.,[13] and officially the City of Los Angeles, is the most populous city in the state of California. With roughly 3.9 million residents within the city limits as of 2020,[7] Los Angeles is the second-most populous city in the United States, behind only New York City, and is the commercial, financial, and cultural center of the Southern California region. Los Angeles has a Mediterranean climate, an ethnically and culturally diverse population, and a sprawling metropolitan area.

The majority of the city proper lies in a basin in Southern California adjacent to the Pacific Ocean in the west and extending partly through the Santa Monica Mountains and north into the San Fernando Valley, with the city bordering the San Gabriel Valley to its east. It covers about 469 square miles (1,210 km2),[6] and is the county seat of Los Angeles County, which is the most populous county in the United States with an estimated 9.86 million residents as of 2022.[14] It is the third-most visited city in the U.S. with over 4.6 million visitors as of 2019.[15]

The area that became Los Angeles was originally inhabited by the indigenous Tongva people and later claimed by Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo for Spain in 1542. The city was founded on September 4, 1781, under Spanish governor Felipe de Neve, on the village of Yaanga.[16] It became a part of Mexico in 1821 following the Mexican War of Independence. In 1848, at the end of the Mexican–American War, Los Angeles and the rest of California were purchased as part of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo and became part of the United States. Los Angeles was incorporated as a municipality on April 4, 1850, five months before California achieved statehood. The discovery of oil in the 1890s brought rapid growth to the city.[17] The city was further expanded with the completion of the Los Angeles Aqueduct in 1913, which delivers water from Eastern California.

Los Angeles has a diverse economy with a broad range of industries, best known as the home of the Hollywood film industry. It also has one of the busiest container ports in the Americas.[18][19][20] In 2018, the Los Angeles metropolitan area had a gross metropolitan product of over $1.0 trillion,[21] making it the city with the third-largest GDP in the world. Los Angeles hosted the Summer Olympics in 1932 and 1984, and will also host in 2028. More recently, statewide droughts in California have strained both the city’s and Los Angeles County’s water security.[22][23]


On September 4, 1781, a group of 44 settlers known as “Los Pobladores” founded the pueblo (town) they called El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles, ‘The Town of Our Lady the Queen of the Angels’.[24] The original name of the settlement is disputed; the Guinness Book of World Records rendered it as “El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles de Porciúncula“;[25] other sources have shortened or alternate versions of the longer name.[26]

The local English pronunciation of the name of the city has varied over time. A 1953 article in the journal of the American Name Society asserts that the pronunciation /lɔːsˈænələs/ lawss AN-jəl-əs was established following the 1850 incorporation of the city and that since the 1880s the pronunciation /lsˈæŋɡələs/ lohss ANG-gəl-əs emerged from a trend in California to give places Spanish, or Spanish-sounding, names and pronunciations.[27] In 1908, librarian Charles Fletcher Lummis, who argued for the name’s pronunciation with a hard g (/ɡ/),[28][29] reported that there were at least 12 pronunciation variants.[30] In the early 1900s, the Los Angeles Times advocated for pronouncing it Loce AHNG-hayl-ais (/lsˈɑːŋhls/), approximating Spanish [los ˈaŋxeles], by printing the respelling under its masthead for several years.[31] This did not find favor.[32]

Since the 1930s, /lɔːsˈænələs/ has been most common.[33] In 1934, the United States Board on Geographic Names decreed that this pronunciation be used.[31] This was also endorsed in 1952 by a “jury” appointed by Mayor Fletcher Bowron to devise an official pronunciation.[27][31]

Common pronunciations in the United Kingdom include /lɒsˈænɪlz,-lɪz,-lɪs/ loss AN-jil-eez, -⁠iz, -⁠iss.[34] Phonetician Jack Windsor Lewis described the most common one, /lɒsˈænɪlz/ (listen), as a spelling pronunciation based on analogy to Greek words ending in -‍es, “reflecting a time when the classics were familiar if Spanish was not”.[35]

ESA Awning did an amazing job. They custom built a huge (16x10) awning for my back yard with a sunshade and installed heaters. It was custom tailored to my needs and came out just as I envisioned. Their pricing was reasonable and they did exactly what they said they would do. The installers were true pros and did a fantastic job. They also made new lounge chair cushions for me which came out great. Would highly recommend ESA Awnings!

I had a very good experience with ESA awning. I had 3 times service with them. They did work on our house awnings first. I had no idea regarding awnings. Jairo sent me computer designs and made me easier to visualize it. After that I ordered out door furniture covers and shade for back yard recently. They are very trustworthy and hard workers. I highly recommend ESA Awning INC.

I had two custom awnings installed by ESA Awnings. I was very impressed with the professionalism of the crew, especially since the installation occurred during the COVID Pandemic. They followed the infection control protocols flawlessly. The awnings are beautiful! The patio awning is the first thing my family comments on when they come to the backyard. I highly recommend ESA!
