Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - LIFESTYLE -

With spring around the cor­ner, land­scaper Jason Hodges says se­lect­ing the right fur­ni­ture is im­per­a­tive to achiev­ing the de­sired look and feel and max­imis­ing time spent in the backyard. “Start by con­sid­er­ing your lifestyle and how you an­tic­i­pate the space will be used,” Hodges says. “Lounges and deep seaters are per­fect for those who like to re­lax, whereas din­ing set­tings are best for long fam­ily meals.” For small spa­ces, buy fur­ni­ture that comes with stor­age com­part­ments and are easy to store away. For DIY en­thu­si­asts, why not as­sem­ble some­thing from old crates or pal­lets or spruce up your old fur­ni­ture by adding some bright cush­ions or paint­ing in sea­sonal colours.
