Tips for a Great Patio

April 12, 2021

Summer is right around the corner! Here are a few tips to liven up your outdoor oasis for cozy summer evenings. 

Umbrella & patio set

Extra shade and comfy chair can change the entire dynamic for your patio. Whether you already own some outdoor furniture and it just needs a quick paint touch up, or you want to make the splurge for something new this season, get something fit to entertain your family for those perfect summer evenings.


Potted plants, green walls, herb gardens, and floral beds. Nothing else brings extra life and color to your little backyard oasis than some plants from your local nursery. Just add your own flair to your décor by picking out modern planters and vases and color coordinated flowers. Make sure to do a little research to make sure the plants you get are easily manageable for your location!


Lanterns and lamps can add a little touch of magic to your backyard ambiance! Keep a tight budget by stringing a few bistro lights around the ceiling or splurge a little extra with a trendy pendant light over a backyard dining set!

Drink Carts

Impress your friends and family with a little pre-made drink cart, easily accessible from your patio. Roll out your favorite drinks and hors‘doeuvres on a little bistro cart that is easy to restock and pretty to stylize. These can range anywhere from $50-1,000 depending on the brand and your budget. 


Need a little extra space? Expand your patio with some pavers with extra reusable space. Bonus: you can utilize the extra space with a backyard sofa for late-night stargazing!

Fire pit

Nothing beats family nights around a fire pit with s’mores in the summer. The best part? You don’t need to trek into the wilderness and build a fire to get that magical experience. Buy a few bricks to build a round or square fire pit for a quick weekend project. Add a few camping or patio chairs and a Bluetooth speaker to polish off your space for an accessible party area any time you want!
