Even though driftwood is mostly used for decorative purposes in landscapes, it can also be used to create functional items such as trellises, gates, fencing, and many other building projects. One of the reasons driftwood is so popular with homeowners and landscape designers is because it adds a sensational touch to any type of design theme. Regardless of the climate, or what plants are used, driftwood neatly ties design elements together. When shopping for driftwood, a lot of people search for the largest and most desirable piece that they can find.
The biggest pieces of driftwood are typically the most stunning, especially when a large portion of the root system is still intact. Even though the lower trunk and root pieces are the most sought after, every piece of driftwood is unique and beautiful. Whether having purchased the largest piece available, or when a medium to smaller piece is selected, most people find that the piece they purchased is the perfect item to add a finishing touch to their landscape design. Driftwood is an affordable solution when searching for an interesting way to perk up an existing landscape, or when needing a remarkable focal point to complete a new design.
