Part of the outdoor landscape includes hardscaping like stones and patios and things like that. But, it also includes your Mailbox. Now, here in Wisconsin, our mail boxes take a licking. Every winter, the snowplows come out and leave a battlefield of Mailbox carnage in their wake. Many homeowners take this opportunity to upgrade their formerly erect pillars of correspondence receptacles. And there are many options!

I love fancy mailboxes, but we don't have one!! We live in an apartment complex, so we have the standard multi boxes outside. My last house had a door slot and the one before that had a neighborhood metal multibox, so I've NEVER had a cute mailbox! It makes me a little sad! LOL!
