Spring Tips

Spring has arrived and it's time to head outdoors and enjoy the beautiful weather. Here are some budget-friendly tips to create a room without walls, perfect for entertaining family and friends this season.

Container gardening is a great way to add color and beauty on your terrace. Mix a variety of flowers and foliage to create different textures in the planters. Group the pots in clusters and in different heights by using plant stands for more visual impact. This is a great way to soften the look of the hardscape and corners on your patio. You can also add color on the walls with hanging baskets - this is especially beautiful when you frame an opening or door.

Don't forget to look at the watering and care instructions when choosing plants and flowers for your garden to maximize growth. There are plants for full sun, partial sun, and shaded areas, so just make sure your selection coincides with the environment you are planting them in.

Complete the setting with stylish seating and comfy pillows made out of weather-resistant fabric and finishes. Other accents such as outdoor patio lights and candles will enhance the ambiance at night, too.

These tips are perfect for any size outdoor room, whether it be a home with a large backyard or a balcony for those that enjoy high rise living!
