Outdoor Garden Decor- Decorating? Landscaping?


Open green spaces for your home are important, more so today than ever. With lives getting increasingly stressful, surrounded by traffic, buildings and a sea of people, outdoor living spaces offer the essential calm and balance to our existence. The outdoor living area, however, is often the most neglected; or worse, put together as an afterthought – a few garden chairs, a table and perhaps, some potted plants. Unimaginative, lackluster outdoor spaces tend to be uninspiring and hence unused. It is critical, therefore, to give as much thought and attention to their enhancement, as one might give to the rest of the home. It will not only make the area more appealing but also increase the property value. A comfortable, relaxing, inviting space will make your family and friends ‘want’ to spend time outside. Outdoor tables and chairs, a sun lounger, a barbeque, a corner seating space, a garden, have been done a million times over and are, frankly, clichéd. With just a little bit of creativity and innovative ideas, one can breathe new life into a backyard space. Here are a few novel ideas to consider: Glass House: Do you get stuck indoors every time the sky goes grey or the air turns cold?
