When you get your first home that has a patio and you are wondering what to do with the outside space, then you must be lacking imagination. There are so many things you can do with a patio – it’s like a garden that waits for your creative input to make it look its best and bring the envy from all the neighbours and others in the vicinity. Bring the proper garden care and show how creative and a reliable gardener you can be. If you need ideas to go with, here are some starters:
The Cosy Reader’s Patio
If you are a reader, then you know what you need. You want the reading spot in nature – a cosy, quiet place to sit down, drink tea or coffee and simply read. It requires very simple things – a place to sit, a place for the book and mug, and maybe some pleasant surroundings when your eyes float about.
The Comfy Calm Patio
Enjoying the patio requires a comfortable place to sit. Insert some outside sofa and a place to place drinks, maybe even a parasol to keep the sun away. Planting some flowers around to make the place more welcoming is also a nice touch.
The Cool Friend Patio
Forget all conventionality. You don’t need a sofa, you need something that looks like a sofa. If you are a hoarder, this is the place to shine. Decorate the patio so that it looks cool and not comfy or welcoming. Make it the teen dream that always eluded you. It also requires very little garden care.
The Right-at-Home Patio
And, since the patio is an extension of the house, just make the patio a stylish extension – copy the interior. Bring out an art deco decor or some modern urban furniture and have the patio reflect the interior. Just prepare for lawn mowing since the carpet should always be below the ankle.
