Beautiful and sunny weather makes people want to go outside. If you have a yard, then now might be the time to start considering various ideas to improve this space and start spending more time in your garden.
You could maximize the comfort by filling your outdoor space with a sofa set for your garden, and other practical pieces, such as decorative statues, purpose objects, bird feeders, and so on.
To achieve a balance between simplicity and sophistication, you can transform your backyard into the go-to gathering place.Here are a couple of ideas which might find useful.
Get stylish furniture
Every garden requires functional furniture. In this case, you could set out an iron or stone bench and have something to rest your legs after yard work, while enjoying some peace and quiet. Additionally, comfortable Adirondack chairs might be a great addition to your outdoor space for gazing off at the horizon.
When it comes to sitting arrangements, you need to place the furniture at a sensible point. For instance, if it’s too close, it might crowd your house. On the other hand, remote perches could seem like an afterthought. You can also tuck away the bench behind flowering plants to create a secret hideaway that is out of sight.
Create a comfortable lounging area
You should consider your garden as another part of your home, at least when it comes to decorating. Therefore, you can place a sofa, a few oversized ottomans, and chairs, along with chaise lounge to set up a gathering place, that’s at the same time cohesive and comfortable.
The center should be reserved for a coffee table, which will hold a pitcher of cold juice and some light reading. Considering your furniture will be exposed to direct sunlight and harsh weather conditions, you need to invest your money in high-quality chairs and lounging set. Pine, teak, wicker, and cedar are all hard-wearing types of woods, and naturally water-resistant.
Hang a rustic swing
This piece of “furniture” will throw you back to childhood and might be an excellent sitting solution. Take one old tire, fasten it to a long rope, hand it over a sturdy branch. We can guarantee you it will be one of the favorite items in your garden, even if no one uses it.
If black isn’t your color, or if it looks out of place, you could paint the tire in some more appealing, such as pastel blue or yellow, so that it fits the environment. On the other hand, if tire swing is just an accessory in your garden, then fill the hollow rim with potting soil and plant some flowers there.
Install a fence
Replace an old and outdated fence with a new one. There are a lot of types available on the market, and you should find a fence that matches the most to your home décor. The replacement costs can go up to $3,000, but if you don’t have enough money to buy a new fence, then you can plant some decorative plants to hide the ugly sight.
