A fter we purchased our new house, we are actually spending more time at home instead of traveling abroad on exotic vacations. For this reason, we wanted to create a private, relaxing escape in our own backyard or patio.

Even though our backyard isn't that big, I believe we can still create a special get-away where we can hide from the pressures of everyday life. Indeed our outdoor living space can be an extension of our own living room to give even more usable space for entertaining.

We enjoy hosting events and special occasions in our garden. I guess, the flowers, plants and outdoor garden decor blend together to create an ideal setting. First, I am thinking of adding a few special outdoor garden decorative touches relative to the event that we normally are hosting, like birthday parties, anniversaries and family barbecues. Speaking of barbeques, adding a Grill as part of our outdoor kitchen is a great idea to have a nice preparation area and storage space onboard.

Besides, it would be a bonus when we design an outdoor living space around our home because it will increase the value of our house. Actually, designing our own patio isn't limited for a private retreat only since we do a lot of entertaining at home. I believe this is another element that will influence our outdoor living design.

And clearly, we are anticipating the return of warm weather soon, because everywhere I turn, all I see is outdoor furniture. I received an alert this week that one of my favorite store has a pretty large clearance sale on outdoor furnishings like Hammock which is one of my favorite to be added on our patio. I wasn’t too hopeful that the sale would include any Bird and Mammal Deterrents products and garden tools, but it turns out I was wrong.
