1. Enjoy the Glow of a Fire Pit

A fire pit is a fantastic focal point for any patio, and it’s a fun way to gather around during the evening hours. Add a fire pit to your outdoor space and place chairs around it for a fantastic conversation area. You can also cook smores or other treats over the fire pit to keep the kids fed and entertained.

2. Comfortable Coverings

As the weather warms up, you’ll want to have some shade to protect you from the harsh rays of the sun and to cool your space.

Even if you don’t have a green thumb, planters can add pops of color and loads of charm to your patio. Fill your planters with an assortment of easy to care for flowers and greenery that will thrive in your specific planting zone. A container garden is one of many patio ideas that add lots of style to the space without a lot of legwork.
