7 Easy Ways to Make the Most of Your Outdoor Living Space This Spring


Live large with these outdoor living ideas just in time for spring.

Depending on where you live, it’s highly likely that you’ve experiences brutal winter this year, but that’s all over (until next year anyway). Now is it time to get your yard, deck, balcony, back porch, or what have you ready for warm weather outdoor living.

While some have the luxury of taking part in the ritual that is outdoor living (Southern California and Florida peeps, we are talking about you), most of us experience extreme enough changes between seasons that forces us indoors for months on end. That means, when the first early signs of spring arrive we are out in full force sweeping off the stoop, raking up that winter debris, uncovering the lawn furniture and more.

If you are ready to get in on the outdoor living esprit, or maybe your outdoor space needs a springtime spruce up, we have got some suggestions for you to make the most of your outdoor living time.

Don’t forget the shade either. While springtime or autumn sun doesn’t seem as harsh, you still need to watch the harmful rays. Add a bit of shelter and ambiance with a portable pergola.
