Love your outdoor space
with outdoor furniture settings, planted pots and containers, colourful outdoor rugs , fireplaces and of course the ever popular barbecue.
If you are wanting to give your outdoor place a spruce up for summer how about choosing some outdoor pots and planting them up.
It is easy to make a somewhat sterile space feel awhole lot more loved with colourful planted containers.
Remember the vertical aspect too.
Hanging baskets are gorgeous for giving some much needed colour.
Fuchsias are great for the shade and petunias, lobelias and many of the lovely new season perennials are ideal for hanging baskets.
You can even plant up your herbs and edible flowers into these and use them to garnish the evening meal with, which you have just cooked on your new barbecue.
With the cooking under control you can focus on the whole space becoming a centre for entertainment especially through thewarmer months.
Good placement of planted pots and comfortable furniture settings will ensure that you and your family make themost out of the outdoor living space.
It is all about making a cosy, comfortable, handy and practical space to use, so if your outdoor living space is a little tired looking.
Get to it— plant up some pots, shout yourself a new barbecue and sit back in a comfy seat!
