Does your backyard make you feel a little under the weather even when the sun is shining? With a few pops of color, a good spring cleaning, and some creative touches can take your patio from drab to fab in less than a weekend! As the days get longer and the sun gets warmer, your backyard can be a haven from your busy life. It’s time to kick your feet up, get a cold beverage, take a deep breath and enjoy your surroundings!

New patio furniture can add comfort and style. If you entertain or love to dine al fresco, a new table can make it easier to sit and enjoy your friends and family. If you’d rather just lay back and soak up the sun, padded loungers will make it seem like you’re lounging at a five-star resort! Add shade, privacy, and a pop of design with decorative lattice panels in key areas. If your deck is looking a bit weather-worn and faded, a little elbow grease, time, and deck stain can give it a nice refresh. It will also add protection so you can continue to enjoy it for years to come.

Adding decorative touches are a great way to spruce up outdoor areas. Think about replacing old paver or placing new ones for a fresh, refined look. A half-barrel planter is a nice touch that is also functional for brightly colored flowers or even an herb garden. Pillows, umbrellas, flowers, outdoor rugs, and pots in vivid colors will brighten the space and turn it into more than just a green and basic backyard.

For evening and nighttime enjoyment, a border of tiki torches can add light, fun, and some can even be fueled with bug repellent to keep the little buggers away. Strings of white lights, LEDs, or paper lanterns can also add additional light while contributing to the fun party atmosphere you’re creating.

A few new touches can turn your backyard into the perfect place to play, relax, and entertain. With a fresh take on your outdoor space, you can take advantage of the summer weather and enjoy a sanctuary in your own yard.
