Outdoor Living Ideas!

Outdoor Living Design Ideas

One of my favorite things about the spring, summer and fall is being outdoors.  Every chance I get, I spend  time outside.  I’m either sitting on my deck or I’m in my backyard. My backyard is open to my neighbors often times you can find us sitting out there with coffee, some days just watching the birds at her feeders other days chatting with our neighbors.  I love how our back yards look when the flowers are in bloom.  My dog loves being out there too, I often have to bribe him to come in the house in exchange for a treat!

What is your style when it comes to decorating your out door space?  Since my backyard has so much tree cover, I stick with shade loving plants, impatiens, begonias and geraniums.  I like many different styles of gardens from rustic natural looking yards to very structured gardens.  My ideal yard would have a big salt water pool with a stone patio with an archway to a structured looking garden and had a path to a nature lovers dream space, yup if i could, I’d love to have it all in one space.

Here are some my blogger friends outdoor living ideas of spaces and crafts to help get you inspired to tackle your own patios, decks, porches and yards.

    Everything is so beautiful. I think I can manage the citronella candles, and I really love the outdoor dio drink station. That one will be great for summer cookouts and impromptu get togethers.
