10 Tips for Decorating Your Outdoor Space

Are you looking for some interesting ideas to create a more enjoyable and functional outdoor living area?  Well, here are some simple recommendations that once implemented can make quite a difference in the look and feel of your space.

1.  Create cozy seating areas with comfy deep cushion furniture that look like an extension of your home.  Make sure the fabric is soil and fade-resistant as well as water and stain-repellent.

2.  An outdoor fireplace or firepit adds ambiance and warmth on a cool evening.

3.  Add a water feature to your backyard. Consider a fountain or create a rock-lined stream with multiple waterfalls in your landscaping.
