Are you as excited as we are that spring is here? As the weather is turning, why not breaking out of hibernation mode and start enjoying alfresco living? Your garden may already be beautiful, but with the right additions, it has the potential to become one of your home’s most attractive features. Maximize comfort by filling your outdoor space with carefully-selected seating solutions and other additional decorative elements, like statues, bird feeders, and re-purposed objects, can be used to offer a hint of classical appeal.

Design a cozy lounge area. Treat your garden as another room in your home, taking cues from your interior decor. You might group together a sofa, a couple over-sized chairs and ottomans, or even a chaise lounge to make a gathering place that’s comfortable and cohesive. Try to reserve the center-most section for an all-weather coffee table to hold some light reading or a pitcher of lemonade. Furnish your deck or patio with accessories and designs that can add comfort and style to outdoor living.

Install a fountain or bird bath. The rippling water and soft tweeting of birds will make the element of sound, delighting the senses. Since these pieces attract so much attention, they’re best saved for the central part of your garden or perhaps an outlying corner that you’re particularly proud of.

Hang a porch swing. A porch swing isn’t just a piece of furniture, it’s also a state of mind. Hop on, sway for a bit, and you’re transported to a stress-free zone. It can take you back to your childhood.
Even the simplest porch swing offers a taste of gracious living, perhaps because it’s a reminder of more genteel times. Such swings became popular in the mid-1800s, an era known for houses with wraparound porches, when Americans began enjoying more leisure time. They were particularly favored in the sultry South, where they provided a much-appreciated artificial breeze.
