If it's time to realize the untapped potential of your yard, Home Decorators Collection and The Home Depot® have everything you need. Whether you choose to design a cozy seating area or to completely change your landscaping, a few simple touches can make that unused lot one of your favorite living spaces.
The obvious choice to add welcoming style to your yard or patio is plants. If you'd rather ease into gardening, try planters. Scatter them up a set of stairs, along a wall or in corners as accent pieces. You can also use them to create a visual break along a path. Try a few window boxes too; they'll improve your view indoors and out.
If you do have a full garden, create a tailored impression with garden edging. These stylish and durable borders can line paths or define plant beds. An inviting arbor makes a lovely entryway; train vines to climb it for a lush look. And don't count out planters just because you've got planted beds. Potted plants offer versatility for entertaining and decorating; simply rearrange them to change the size, shape and ambience of your outdoor space. You can also pot any plant that may need to be taken indoors during cooler weather.
Be sure to add a rain barrel to your garden accessories; that way, you'll practically always have water for your thirsty plants. And don't forget seating for your garden area. Stay cool with a patio umbrella, and check out our outdoor decor for those perfect finishing touches. Before you know it, you'll have created an oasis your family will love.
