Patios are the perfect spot for enjoying the outdoors. Fire up the grill and spend the afternoon in your backyard enjoying some sunshine and admiring your garden. If you need help furnishing your patio or simply want to get creative with it, consider the following ideas.
Add a water feature to your patio
Water features with a recirculating pump create a very soothing sound that really helps enhance those relaxing moments on the patio.
Plant fragrant plants around your patio
Add flowers with a pleasing sense of smell to your patio in order to create the complete relaxing sensory experience. Favourites include dianthus flowers, lily of the valley (low maintenance requirements), hyacinth and simple classic roses.
Soften the edges of your patio with flowers
To avoid a jarring feel on the border of your patio, you can plant a natural border of flowering plants and shrubs along the edge. Taller plants can also enhance your privacy while letting you enjoy the garden up close.
Add a rug to your patio
There are plenty of weather resistant rugs available that are well suited to outdoor use. Patio rugs can come in a huge variety of styles and colours, choose one made from recycled materials to be environmentally friendly.
Use lighting to set the mood on your patio
Lighting is a great way to create a sense of ambience to your patio at night. Solar lighting or low-voltage globes are the perfect choice for the environmentally conscious (or simply to save on power bills!).
