How to Create a Comfortable a Patio Garden If you enjoy sitting out on your outdoor patio, enjoying those warm summer nights or cool fall days, you might want to consider adding a little more character to your surroundings by creating a patio garden. Patio gardens have become very popular and are not that difficult to create. All you will need is, of course, a patio, potting soil, flowers and plants, rocks or shipping peanuts, water features, flower pots, planters and other accessories you may wish to add to your backyard patio garden. The first step toward creating your patio garden is to record on paper how much sun hits this area at different times of the day. You will need to keep track of this for several days in a row in order to get an accurate idea. The second step is to survey your outdoor patio and determine how you will be able to use this space. If you have a large backyard patio, you will able to use larger pots that are placed strategically along it in different locations. If your patio is relatively small, hanging baskets will work nicely and beautifully. You may even choose to use both, hanging the baskets along the outside, provided you have a cover over your patio, and placing the pots in various locations on the patio. What are the suitable patio plants for my patio garden? Based on the amount of available space, you can choose a wide variety of flower pots and potting soil. You can purchase these items from your local discount store or home depot. You will be surprise that choosing pots of varying shapes, colors and sizes can make a garden that much more interesting. Next, place the pots on your patio, arranging them while they are still empty. You may even want to move them around until the look is one you desire. Now it is time to decide what types of plants and flowers you will grow. This will most likely be based on how much sun your patio area receives since some plants and flowers require shade and others need full or partial sunlight. If you are unsure of what types to plant, consult with someone who works at your local gardening store. If you are creating a vibrant patio garden, bright colors may be used. If, on the other hand, you are going for a more soothing effect, you may choose paler colors. You may refer to our patio plants section to see some examples and pictures of some common patio plants. Once you have chosen the plants and flowers, it is time to take them home and replant them. Be sure to carefully follow the instructions included with them and please seek the assistance of a gardening professional if you are unsure. When you have planted your purchases, you might want to consider adding patio accessories and decorate your new patio garden with some simple patio ideas. Furniture, wind chimes, special patio string lights, fountains all make great accessories. Again, the accessories you choose will depend on the amount of space your patio takes up and how much you want to use on your new patio garden.
Enjoy Your Patio Furniture Year Round If you enjoy spending time outdoors with family and friends, patio furniture is a very wise investment. The right furniture will not only allow you to entertain in your outdoor space, but it will also enhance the visual appeal of your yard or patio. Good quality patio furniture will enhance the value your property, not to mention your quality of life. The biggest impediment to enjoying your outdoor space is the weather, so its important to equip your yard or patio for your climate zone and seasonal weather shifts. Accessories like garden umbrellas and yard misters can stave off summer heat, while patio heaters, chimineas and outdoor fire pits ensure you can relax comfortably in the cooler months. Incorporating these useful patio products into your outdoor space will allow you to enjoy yourself year round. Patio Products for Sunny Days If you live in a climate zone where temperatures exceed 80 degrees, it is worth investing in some sort of shading. A good quality market patio umbrella will protect you and your patio furniture from prolonged exposure to direct sun, which can result in discomfort, sunburns and faded furniture. Garden umbrellas come in a variety of colors and patterns that can visually transfer your outdoor space. Power base patio umbrellas, such as the Milano Pro Offset Umbrella, are exceptionally easy to use and transport because they have a built in rotating device with foot pedal and two built in hand grips for easy lifting. These top of the line patio umbrellas will keep you cool while you enjoy your light meal or summer cocktail on the patio. If you want to spruce up your patio and extend your patio furniture usage into the night, consider purchasing the auto-tilt patio umbrella with LED lights that provide a soft night time glow. Patio Products for Chilly Mornings or Evenings Some of the most enjoyable times to be outdoors are dawn, dusk and nighttime. Early morning coffee on the patio is perhaps one of the best ways to start the day, and nothing beats a cool winter night, wrapped in a blanket under the stars. These moments, while beautiful, can be prohibitively chilly without the right patio products. An outdoor patio heater will allow you, your family and friends to comfortably enjoy your outdoor space, even when there is snow on the ground. There are a wide variety of heating devices available, ranging in size, composition and price. Choose from gas, electric and propane patio heaters depending on your specific needs. A high value option is the stainless steel outdoor heater by patio comfort. This heavy duty infrared patio heating device has easy on and off tank access and adjustable heat output, so you can set it at the perfect temperature for you and your guests. Hanging heaters are a popular choice among restaurants and hotels. These ceiling mounted patio heaters provide significant warmth without taking up valuable patio space. Wall mounted patio heaters are also an efficient patio heater choice. The Fire Sense wall mounted infrared patio heater operates at 90% efficiency and is substantially less expensive to operate than propane patio heaters. Whichever choice you make, turn on your new patio heater and stay warm while enjoying a relaxing drink or dinner outside. Using a fire pit is another way to stay warm while spending time on your patio at night or in the cooler months. Patio fire pits provide a traditional, rustic appeal as well as warmth to your patio and come in a variety of unique designs. Fire pits offer both style and functionality and often become the focal point of the social gathering. Choose a design that reflects your personality, style or heritage. All of the high quality fire pits bring warmth during the winter months, but can be used year round for enjoyment and décor.
