Don’t forget one of the best reasons to spend time outside: flowers and plants. Add a big planter or two for your patio, where you can display seasonal planters and add color and dimension to an entertaining area.
An outdoor room can be one way to distinguish your home from others, from the size of the patio or porch to the lighting, furniture and plants. But sometimes it’s tough to know how and where to start.
Starting at the house and going with the grain or the length of the boards, sweep the deck with the pressurized water, overlapping as you go along to help prevent streaks. Raise the nozzle of the power washer several feet off the surface of the deck and maintain this height to prevent gouging the wood surfaces. This method is slower and requires more strokes as you clean the deck, but it does the job. Be sure to also clean the railings, posts and stairs.
Make a small courtyard seem larger by including mirrors. A wall mirror can effectively double the perceived depth of a narrow courtyard garden. Or consider using a series of mirrors along a wall to mimic windows.
