About their Products

Since 1933, Walpole Woodworkers have carried on the great tradition of American woodworkers, a tradition let’s all hope we never lose to out-sourcing.  They’re located throughout the Eastern U.S.

Whimsy comes in all shapes and budgets.

Two of the unique features they offer are rustic-style fencing, and the new, improved staining process they pioneered.  This process performs better than staining done after installation, and avoids the mess of staining in place, in customers’ gardens.  Walpole also designed and manufactures LifeGuardTM posts to help increase the longevity of its fence.    We’re suckers for people who take old-fashioned pride in their work.

Bridges for gardens grand and small. (Giverny, anyone?)

Another innovation by Walpole is the use of CAD systems to produce detailed drawings so that customers can see exactly how their project will look.  If you’ve never seen CAD – the design program used by architects and landscape architects everywhere – it looks incredibly real.

Furniture, umbrella, hammocks – who’s ready for summer?

Originally, Walpole’s wood of choice was Northern White Cedar, a hardy limber cut at its mills at Chester and Detroit, Maine.  Now they offer a choice of styles in mahogany, cherry, teak, metal and the highly acclaimed wood alternative known as cellular PVC.  It’s a long-lasting, low-maintenance material with the look and feel of natural wood, yet it won’t rot, split, or warp.  Walpole happens to be the largest fabricator of modern cellular PVC in the country.

Fencing in these styles and more.

Free Consultations

We’re happy to offer this feature to our customers – a free fencing consultation on your property by a Walpole designer, who’ll give design suggestions and take the necessary measurements.

Got something that needs to be hidden?

Stephanie Fleming was raised at Behnke’s Nurseries in Beltsville. Her Mom, Sonja, was one of Albert & Rose Behnke’s four children. She was weeding from the moment she could walk and hiding as soon as she was old enough to run, so many weeds, so little time. Although she quickly learned how to pull out a perennial and get taken off of weed pulling duty.
