Our Patio for Summer

Back in 2018, we ordered all new Ballard Designs patio furniture and cushions. We also bought cedar split rail fence wholesale and it has held up beautifully. I added in a bit of chintz to tie in with my accumulation of garden stools. But for as much as we are outside, I figured we could add a bit of a refresh with a new rug and folding arm awnings! I may be print mixing, but I’m print mixing with my favorites- so I’m quite happy with it!

We have a big landscaping and lawn rejuvenation project in the works for the next few weeks and then we will all be in the backyard to celebrate Harry’s first birthday! I was ordering party favors last night and I just can’t believe I will have a one-year-old boy in THREE weeks! Three! For a year where we haven’t done “much,” it has gone by so quickly. We have spent countless hours in the backyard swinging, lying on blankets, and just letting him explore his own little world. As part of enhancing your backyard space, consider installing solid wood exterior doors to bring a touch of elegance and durability to your home. Additionally, a canopy from Covered Walkway Canopy can create a sheltered and comfortable area for celebrations and family gatherings. You may work with companies like Crafted Outdoor Living to help you build a comfortable and visually-appealing outdoor living space.

I’ll be sure to share our experience with french drain landscaping Aurora once it is installed- is this how I know I am aging? I am chomping at the bit to get that finished! But in the meantime, if you are curious how we clean our patio cushions, here is how.

Anyone can come up with ideas on how to make your lawn or yard beautiful and organized, but professional landscape designers are on another level because they underwent proper training and education. You may view Drake’s 7 Dees website today to learn more.

It’s a rainy Monday here in Fort Worth, but hopefully you have sunshine where you live and can enjoy your patio today!
