Furnishing Your Garden

With the springtime comes better weather, longer days, and what feels like a magnetic pull to get you to spend more time outdoors. If you have a backyard garden or patio space, this is the perfect time of year to elevate the area with new furniture and decor so you can enjoy it to the fullest. To help you get started, here are some expert tips from designers to apply in your own space.

Embrace Wicker

Wicker is the ultimate outdoor furniture material. It’s durable and offers a classic, timeless look that never goes out of style. Whether you’re looking for a full furniture set or smaller accents like baskets and side tables, you can never go wrong with wicker. 

Be Intentional with Furniture Placement

Make sure to furnish your garden space in a way that can accommodate the number of guests you plan on regularly entertaining. This might mean you should purchase versatile options like stools and poufs, which can easily turn into extra seating if needed. Place the furniture close together to create a sense of intimacy where conversation can flow easily. 

Incorporate a Birdbath

Birdbaths can add an element of charm to your garden and make your outdoor space look like it’s right out of a fairy tale. But, even if you don’t want to use the birdbath in the traditional sense, there are plenty of ways you can spruce it up for a more modern feel, like using one as a planter for an herb garden, succulents, or flowers. 

Go for a Pop of Color

In your garden, you may feel a bit more adventurous and creative with your design choices than when decorating the interior of your home. Feel free to play with vibrant colors and unique patterns, such as furnishing the space with bright red furniture, a playful umbrella, or mix-and-matched throw pillows. 

Add Mood Lighting

It’s always a good idea to add more lighting to your garden. Not only is this practical, as it allows you to enjoy the space even when the sun goes down. But, it also adds a nice ambiance that makes the area feel cozier and more inviting. Consider adding string lights above the garden or thoughtfully placing lanterns around the space for a layered and sophisticated look. 

Consider a Fire Pit

If you have the space for it, a fire pit is a wonderful addition to a garden. It provides a space where you can naturally gather with friends and family, roast marshmallows, and embrace the warmth it puts off on a chilly evening. You can either build a permanent fire pit in the area or find a portable option that requires minimal setup.
