Add style and light to a multitude of settings with the Ethanol-Fueled Four Fall Tabletop Fireplace. Constructed from solid steel with a gunmetal-gray, powder-coated epoxy finish, the fire feature can be used almost anywhere when mounted on its matching base, which is included. At 13.75"H by 9.75" square, it is an attractive accent to a tabletop, walkway, staircase, porch or patio. Liquid ethanol fuel sold separately. $150 (plowhearth.com)

Tag, You’re It Ceramic Plant Tags are an artful way to identify herbs. Handcrafted by Phoenix artist Ann Richards, these cream-colored plant companions come with metal hanging stakes for use in pots or in the garden. Each 3.5"H by 2.5"W tag features the name and illustration of an herb. $6 (arichardsaz@gmail.com)

Sculptural Planting HomArt’s new Indio Planters give small plants modern style. A hexagonal cast cement base is topped with a metal cage that supports taller plants and adds visual interest to an indoor garden or outdoor space. Available in three sizes. Display a single planter for a dramatic minimalist statement, or combine all three pieces to create a unique botanical exhibit. $19-$24 (ceterrainteriordesign.com)
Double Play The Trake combination trowel and rake merges your most often used tools into a single device. Its 17"L handle allows for easy use while kneeling or sitting, eliminates extra bending and reduces back strain. The Trake’s ergonomic design and nonslip vinyl coating also are easy on hands. Constructed from rustproof die-cast aluminum alloy, the tool is handy for a multitude of garden tasks. $25 (gardenersedge.com)


Lock Them Up Protect those prized seedlings and leafy veggies from wildlife and pets with the 3-in-1 Chicken Wire Cloche. Use the two-piece cage to cover a single row, or place the halves against a wall or fence to guard tender plants. It measures 8"H by 37"L by 13.5"W. $40 (gardeners.com)
Tie it Up The Garden Twine and Scissors set merges form and function. The 360-foot roll of untreated twine unspools easily from the cast iron dispenser, while the scissors ride along, ready to use at the end of the row or after tying a plant for proper support. $32 (burpee.com)


Retro-Look Seating Brown Jordan’s new Crossings outdoor seating line combines the midcentury look of woven strap furniture with a customizable design. Both the straps and the seat coverings are made of Sunbrella fabric. Designed by John Caldwell, the pieces can be used separately or combined to form larger pieces, such as an oversized sectional, and can complement a wide variety of outdoor spaces. $11,000-15,000 (brownjordan.com)
