My ‘Plans’ to Renovate My Patio and How You Can Fix Up Yours
Whoo boy, what can I say? It was a long winter. And then spring hit with all of the rain. I have done a little work in the back yard but nothing on the front patio. My grill sits out there, lonely. My table and chairs have been blown around. And I have weeds coming up in the flower bed.
- Use different textures of plants. Too much of one thing can make for a bland patio.
- Move the air around. If you have a covered patio, add an outdoor ceiling fan. They can really help make it more bearable to be outside come July and August.
- Include lighting. Exterior lighting such as along walkways or above a table help keep the party going after the sun sets.
- Add a water feature. A small fountain or birdbath make for soothing sounds or for attracting birds and butterflies. And it helps build an oasis out here in the desert.
