Many people welcome the warmer weather with open arms because they know that it means they get to spend more time outside. If you’re one of them, you probably want your house to look just as inviting outdoors as it does indoors. Luckily, that’s not a problem. You can find all kinds of outdoor decorating ideas, and this guide will tell you where to find them as well as how to make the most of them.
1. Outdoor lighting
If you have a dead plant or a potted plant, you can use it to decorate your patio, porch or yard. You could also use colorful plastic balls and lanterns to provide ambient lighting.
2. Decorate with recycled materials
No matter how much landscaping you have, there are always some stray plants left behind when the gardeners come in the springtime. If it’s not practical for you to use them indoors, consider planting them where they’re most likely to be seen outside.
3. Create your own garden
If you already have a beautiful orchards, or if you just want to try something new and fun, you could keep them alive year-round by planting fruit trees, ornamental trees, and shrubs. If you don’t know what kind of plants would grow well in your area, you can start seed for a new plant type that would attract wildlife to it.
4. Use seasonal flowers
You don’t need a special flower garden to arrange flowers in an attractive way all year round. If you have some pots or baskets lying around your house, consider using them in different ways. You could use them as planters for green plants, or you can serve as a spot for planters to grow herbs.
5. Use colorful pots
If you have some old egg cartons, urns, or anything that can look pretty and ornamental, consider using them to create flower arrangements. Before you do, however, make sure that they’re empty of any plant seeds! You don’t want anything to be accidentally planted by mistake.
Here are the top outdoor decorating ideas for the perfect lawn, patio, or yard. Remember that you can use these same ideas to decorate your home inside and out. If you’re feeling ambitious, try to do both at once so you can save time and money.
