1. Soften the edges of your patio with flowering shrubs.
2. Bring your living room outdoors. Having a comfortable place to sit will make you want to spend more time outdoors.
3. Outdoor lighting adds a nice ambiance and allows the space to be usable at night.
4. Give your patio a personal touch with charming garden accents.
I am in the process of sprucing up my parents patio. It was neglected long before they purchased the house and with so many outdoor projects this lower patio has been put off again and again. This patio has so many great features that with a little TLC it could be an amazing little getaway just steps from their house. I’ve been browsing the web for ideas on how to spruce up your patio. These are just a few of the ideas I think will make the biggest impact. I want to turn this space into a place my parents want to go to read, relax, and entertain.
Look out for a post on my garden transformation soon!
