Flower Power 🌸

Bring life, color, and texture into your outdoor living space with some flowers. Plant your favorite fragrant flowers in a decorative potted planter box and display them around your yard. If you want to make a bold visual statement, we recommend planting some beautiful Dahlia Pompons.

Get Cozy 🤗

What good is an uncomfortable outdoor oasis? To make sure your summer days and nights are both chic and cozy, have plenty of outdoor throw pillows and fun throw blankets on hand.

Swing Into Relaxation 😎

Fun fact: You don’t need trees to set up a hammock in your backyard. We found this hammock with a steel stand so you can enjoy cat naps or curl up with a book in the great outdoors.

Light It Up 💡

Mood lighting is an easy way to create an inviting vibe in any living space. To enjoy your outdoor retreat after the sun sets, illuminate the night sky with some cute string lights.

Bring The Heat 🔥

Fireplaces create a natural focal point in the home, so why not add a wood-burning fire pit to your backyard? This hot outdoor accessory is perfect for chilly nights and can help you toast the perfect s’mores.

Go With The Flow ⛲️

There’s something so relaxing about the sound of cascading water. Bring tranquility to your outdoor space with a stone waterfall fountain.
