New Wind Spinners from Evergreen



With our latest Garden release, we continue to offer a wide selection of kinetic wind spinners (also called whirligigs or wind catchers). Our garden spinners simulate movement found in nature and add visual interest to yards and gardens. We offer these pieces in styles that can be staked, clamped to a deck railing, or hung from trees.


We carry many different sizes of kinetic garden art, with certain items over 6 feet tall. Our beautiful large sculptures make a bold statement in any garden, and ship KD for convenience.  These have a different motion patterns to create a variety of visual effects! We also offer a kinetic topper program lets customers pair a topper with a staked base to create a kinetic garden sculpture that is 48 inches tall.



Our hydro spinners stand 89 inches tall, and are offered in 2 different colorations. Each one has a 4-prong stake base, along with an attachment for your water hose, to feed water into them, and create an extra stunning effect, plus the added functional benefit of watering your lawn or flower bed.



We also combine the strength of movement with the popularity of lighting, with our new solar spinners which are over 6 feet tall and offer bright colored designs that look beautiful when spinning, whether by day or night.



Our charming mini garden spinners are 18 inches tall and look great in planters. They make great additions to gardens or our mini-gardens! We offer several mini kinetics with an included clamp for mounting on the edge of a deck.




Hanging spinners

Our twirlers are hanging wind spinners that range in size from 28 inches to 36 inches and mesmerize with their twisting motion. They come in brightly colored designs for spring and summer. Our new 5-piece metal shepherd’s hook is the perfect way for consumers to show these off in their yard. It screws together easily to create a 6-foot tall pole.

We also have a selection of new 10-inch diameter spectrum spinners. These ship flat, and can be spread out by the retailer or consumer to create a unique sense of depth and motion when they spin. They create unique visual effects when they rotate–it’s hard to look away!

Highlights From Our Latest Cypress Home Release


Our latest Cypress Home release features several major initiatives we thought we’d elaborate on! Our stoneware ceramic tabletop pieces come in a variety of high-end looks in coordinated colors, textures, and sculptural accents, while our latest expansion in artificial plants, floral bouquets and other flowery decorations includes a range of beautiful pieces that fit easily with our tabletop collections.



Ceramic Tabletop


Several Watercolor Boho pieces
Our latest tabletop and serving pieces are all made of stoneware ceramics. Stoneware is a rather broad term for pottery or other ceramics that are fired at a relatively high temperature. Because of this process, stoneware is generally tougher and more durable than other ceramics, which makes it great for serving pieces and drinkware. It's also nonporous, so it will not soak up liquids. All of our newest tabletop pieces will also include a stamp on the bottom with care instructions and material content for end consumer reference.

Part of what makes these stoneware tabletop items really unique is the sculpting and irregular shapes that we offer. You'll see both matte and glossy finishes, depending on the piece, as well as different art techniques like decal or hand-painted designs. Our Watercolor Boho pieces even feature metallic gold accents. There's also a wide variety of pieces, including canisters, serving trays, pitchers, bowls, and more. We easily match the competition, in both price and quality.



Artificials


Our 22" hydrangea wreath
Our artificial floral arrangements, including succulents, wreaths, and bouquets, have many uses when it comes to decorating your home. Our wreaths make great accents on doors and walls–or hang them horizontally as an inventive centerpiece! We have an amazing 22" wreath full of hydrangeas that includes a loop on the back for easy hanging. Succulents can go almost anywhere, and we have small to medium succulent pieces in modern frames, attractive glass containers and more. Our floral assortments range from simple decorative fabric flowers in miniature watering cans to realistic bouquets that look and feel like the real thing. For some added flair, we even have tabletop flower arrangements with an LED lighting effect (here are a few)!



Retailers can pre-book these items now and your order will ship in time for the Spring-Summer 2018 selling season! We always recommend that our retailers pre-book their new items for the spring and summer to help ensure that we can have the inventory allocated when the season arrives.

A Taste of Cape Craftsmen Trend Collections






With our Cape Craftsmen line of furniture, lighting, décor and more, we have everything you need to create a striking high-end look with unique pieces that coordinate in striking and subtle ways. We coordinate items within different thoughtfully curated trend collections that represent a variety of aesthetics.

At Ease Traditional

At Ease Traditional is an extension of the Modern Loft trend. It combines an industrial or urban architectural style with a bit of farmhouse décor to create a comfortable look full of neutral tones that can be just as much "down-home" as "up-town." This collection features multi-functional furniture such as our impressive wooden hutch and serving cart. We also highlight galvanized metal, often paired with natural or distressed wood. For fans of the recycled and repurposed approach, the new word is "rescue." We include items in this collection with irregular and uneven surfaces that have a worn or aged look. You see this in some of our unique wall pieces, like our wood-framed chalk board and our 19-inch metal and wood clock.

Oasis & Glamping

Our Oasis and Glamping collections capture a blend of indoors and outdoors. Oasis is all about creating a natural space in your home and is inspired by an emphasis on health and wellness, while Glamping is the new craze in camping where you dress up your campsite with home decor elements. On the Oasis side of things, we have some great colorful pieces, like our set of 2 metal and wood wall decor and our new flamingo lamp.

When it comes to Glamping, we have several pieces that take their cues from outdoor adventures. Our new corkboard has a fun printed map design, and includes pushpins to let you record your own travels. And our new folding chair can fit with multiple outdoor styles. It has a metal frame, the back and seats are covered in real leather, and the arms are made of teak wood. It’s easy to fold up for storage or to take to your next glamping site!

Waterside Naturals & Coastal Shimmer

This two-part collection goes from a blend of comfort and style, with a mix of whites and neutrals, to a contrasting combination of rainbow metallics and shimmering shells. Our white metal furniture helps anchor (no pun intended!) the Waterside look. Pieces like the nautical bench we combine perfectly with our colorful, 30-by-30-inch Rain Drops outdoor wall canvas. The Waterside collection also includes wood accent pieces that are hand-carved by artisans in India. In Coastal Shimmer, you'll see a lot of gold-toned metallics, like our starfish lamp which is 24 inches high, and our seashell and starfish wall art.



Floral Boho

Our Floral collection, From Boho to Watercolor, is filled with the beauty and drama of rich floral hues. We have a wide selection of new outdoor wall art in this group, from our 30-by-30 inch outdoor-safe canvas art, to our selection of hummingbird metal wall art that all capture the natural beauty and tones of birds and flowers in that flowing watercolor style. We also mixed in some of our fabric-wrapped functional metal wall art to complete the look.






…And we’re barely scratching the surface. There’s so much more to find within our curated trend collections and we would highly recommend browsing our Cape Craftsmen catalog to discover more!

Z-Fence: Our All-Natural Mosquito and Insect Repellent


Here at Evergreen Enterprises, we believe in natural solutions to common outdoor concerns, whether it's our ant moats to protect hummingbird feeders, or our bee houses to help promote the growth of the honeybee population. Items like our wasp catchers continue to be strong sellers at retail.
Mosquitoes are not only annoying, but they also carry a number of serious diseases like malaria, yellow fever, typhus, West Nile virus, and Zika. And many mosquito repellants today contain DEET, which is effective, but not very safe, especially when it comes to children. Did you know that only about a third of insect repellants on the market today are safe for kids? We've offered bat houses in the past, which can help reduce mosquitoes, since bats are their natural predators.

With the introduction of Z-Fence, our very own all-natural line of defense against mosquitos and flying insects, we're taking our natural solutions approach to the next level!


How It Works

Our entire Z-Fence line is based on specially-formulated repellents that are gentle, all-natural, and safe for the whole family. They work through a slow-release technology, which diffuses into soft material so it releases at a steady and consistent rate. The release of the repellant creates a 6-foot wide "safe zone" around the user or area, which serves as a barrier against insects.
The ingredients used in Z-Fence products are made from a mix of plant extracts, including geraniol, thyme, geranium oil, peppermint oil, and citronella. These are all registered with the EPA as acceptable active ingredients with minimum risk. Our products have also been tested at an independent lab here in the U.S. to make sure they are both safe and effective.

What We Offer

For protecting outdoor living spaces, our partially-glazed terracotta Z-Fuser oil diffusers are easy to use. You pour some of our Z-Oil into the vessel, and it's diffused out through the naturally-porous terracotta to create that repellent barrier effect. We have a selection of both one-piece and two-piece styles. Each Z-Fuser includes a 4-ounce bottle of our very own naturally-formulated Z-Oil, which is made of a mixture of geraniol and thyme, and tested in the U.S. for safety and effectiveness.



For outdoor lovers, we have a variety of wearable items that include a similar natural, slow-release repellant built in. Even with all-natural repellant formulas, some people can have reactions to putting insect repellant directly on their skin, and our wearable products offer a great alternative. Our braided Z-Bracelet is actually infused with the natural repellant. Our neoprene Z-Band has an adjustable fit, and holds a replaceable repellent tablet, as does our Z-Clip which easily goes anywhere. The bands and clips each include 2 tablets, which last up to 120 hours, so there's no need to re-apply like you would with a spray. Packs of extra Z-Tablet refills are of course available. For additional on-the-go flexibility, our Z-Pouch lets you clip a repellent tablet almost anywhere, and our Z-Stickers let you add a barrier against bugs literally anywhere!


For our retailer, we've also made sure all our Z-Fence products can merchandise seamlessly together in coordinating packaging and a recommended display for a great in-store presence.

With Z-Fence, you can stop worry about the dangers of mosquitoes and harmful chemicals, and get back to enjoying life outdoors!
