Ah, spring is finally upon us. And what better way to welcome the warmer weather than by updating your garden or patio? Here, seven outdoor decorating trends that will transform your basic yard into a seasonal sanctuary.
7 Garden Trends That Will Be Huge in 2016
Suddenly, a staycation sounds like a great idea...
Showy landscaping is out. Breezy flower beds are in. Skip the high-maintenance turf grass in favor of low-key (and more sustainable) perennials like yarrow, hibiscus or lavender, which are able to survive with less watering.
The farm-to-table trend is headed straight to your home. Start small with herbs like parsley or mint (hello, mojitos!), or go all in with local fruits and vegetables.
Thanks to upgrades in fabric and design, outdoor seating (think rattan and wicker) is more durable--and prettier--than ever. Add some decorative throws or pillows in a similar color scheme to create a calming vibe.
Small space? Take your gardens upward--more specifically, plant in hanging pots or set a bunch of containers on a ladder to snazz up your patio or balcony without taking up too much real estate.
Patterned Outdoor Rugs
Plush new lounge chairs, check. Charming vegetable garden, check. Pitcher of sangria, check. If it still feels like something is lacking from your sitting area, try adding a colorful rug to the space. It will make the exterior of your home just as inviting as the inside.
