Summer is just around the corner and it’s time to beautify your yard. In addition to fertilizing the yard and planting new flowers, there are several design tactics that you can use to make your outdoor space warm, welcoming and clean. Here are the top five things you can do to transform your patio into a summertime sanctuary:
1) Plant Window Boxes
Like a French cottage on the side of a quaint country road, a window box overflowing with flowers and herbs brings a sense of abundance and beauty. Bring some classical elegance to your home this summer by planting window boxes on the windows that face the lawn or patio. For maximum durability and functionality, opt for a box with a built-in drain, so plants don’t get soggy in the event of a heavy rain. Choose a finish that matches or compliments your house’s siding and fill with flowers, herbs or hanging plants.
2) Install Patio Planters
To give your outdoor space a calm elegance, display planters bursting with colorful flowers. Patio planters come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors and can be customized to fit your unique style. Place two planters by the side of the back door and several more around common seating, dining or recreation areas.
3) Put Your Patio on a Pedestal
Perfect for the corners of decks or balconies, pedestal planters are waist-height and allow plants to escape the shade of deck rails. A nice touch for any elevated space, pedestal planters provide a sense of abundance and elegance to your outdoor area. Place two pedestal planters in the corners of your deck or use them to frame a bar or storage shed. Perfect for tall plans like palm trees, pedestal planters can take up extra room and make your deck feel like a beautiful rainforest in no time.
4) Upgrade Your Mailbox
Give your mailbox a facelift by installing a new post in a finish that matches or compliments your home’s siding. Doing this freshens the look of the house and gives your space some serious curb appeal. Consider completing the project with a new mailbox made of brass or painted a fun color.
5) Hide Clutter
For the inevitable lawn accessories such as garden hoses and spare flowerpots, invest in a small, discrete storage shed that blends into your decor. Available in a variety of sides, shapes and colors, storage sheds are a great way to keep your yard organized, neat and beautiful.
