Welcome Spring With These Outdoor Area Ideas

Springtime is a great opportunity to get some spring cleaning done and prepare for outdoor festivities that are fast approaching. It’s important to have the porch, deck and garden ready to be used for family members and guests to welcome the bright sunshine. Check out our outdoor area ideas to help guide you in sprucing up your space to become fresh and functional during the new season:

Start From Scratch
Before you begin, take the time to inspect if there are any upgrades or repairs that need to be done. This is especially useful if it may have been a while since you last checked for any damages. These can include cracked boards on the deck and fixing up patios by re-sanding or adding more gravel. You can also have a look if there are any old belongings or furniture scattered around that are no longer being used and find them a second home.

Set The Scene
By having a clean slate, you can be all good to set up the ideal place where everybody can enjoy and relax in. With a lot of direct sunlight, it is essential to have a designated area that can provide some shade. A helpful outdoor area idea is to structure the space by dividing the entertainment spots into separate sections to accommodate for dining, lounging and recreation. This will make it a lot easier in the long run particularly when having several guests over and multiple activities being held. In addition, creating an outdoor cooking station can make the process a lot smoother and lets you avoid running in and out of the house when having a barbeque. A seating section can also assist in making sure everybody is comfortable and can easily lounge around.

Bloom And Blossom
Spring and flowers go hand-in-hand, which is why a garden bed with healthy plants makes the ultimate statement by adding some colour and life. This outdoor area idea should start by getting rid of all the weeds that have remained and enriching the soil with some compost to increase the vitality of the new plants. The next step would be to figure out what’s required for the new plants such as the soil type and water requirements. This can be easier by planning where every single plant should go and grouping similar ones together to ensure ongoing growth. When it comes to which plant combinations to use, the possibilities are endless. However, you may have to cut back any plants that are getting too big and making the space overcrowded.

A Consistent Finish
An outdoor area idea to keep in mind is using rich colours for your furniture that coordinates well with the colourful plants outside. The décor elements can tie in well with the reds, blues and yellows sprinkled around the yard to complete the total look. You can continue to maintain the aesthetic and ambience by installing some arty lighting, such as lanterns or fairy lights, to contribute to the whole outdoor experience.
