Visual Blight in the Woodlands

Please select a brown tarp.

Maybe you have never thought about this, but it is important. It is a simple thing and takes very little time. When selecting a tarp to cover your woodpile or a piece of machinery, PLEASE select a BROWN one. A green tarp would be a distant second choice (It blends in in the summer….but not in the winter.). DO NOT select a BLUE tarp because blue is not a natural color to be found in our woodland landscape. A blue tarp in our landscape is a VISUAL BLIGHT. Our eye is “called” to the blue tarp instead of the over all beauty of the scenery. It distracts from the natural beauty of our forested neighborhood. The only color more distracting to the eye is blaze orange which is great for safety…..but not in the landscape.
