Our Story

About Us

Over the last 30 years, our parent company, The Winfield Collection, has published full-size traceable patterns for thousands of fun and original wood projects that have allowed do-it-your-selfers of all skill levels to transform plain wood into all types of handcrafted items—from yard displays to picnic tables! 

 In today’s busy world, however, fewer people are finding the time to make things themselves and are instead purchasing more items readymade.  This trend has lessened demand for our patterns and, along with recent challenges in the economy, forced Winfield to face cutting its workforce, mostly long term employees with families, unless it could somehow increase its business.

 After some deliberation, it seemed to make sense to go where the business was.  We lost customers to the readymade market, so why not be a part of it?  Every year, we design new and original projects for a shrinking do-it-yourself market, so why not manufacture our great designs and offer high quality, AMERICAN MADE products at affordable prices to the much larger readymade market?  So it was decided.  And thus Front Yard Originals was born!

 Please check out our ever-growing product line.  We take great pride in offering you some of the most popular designs from Winfield’s extensive collection manufactured from quality outdoor rated materials that will give you many years of enjoyment. 

 We thank you for your interest in our story and our products and remember, when you place an order with us, you’ll be getting a unique display worthy of anyone’s front yard and you’ll be able to take pride in the fact that you’re supporting American jobs.
