Patio Aspirations (and Dreams Deferred)
I struggle with making the front of my house look attractive.
I admit, my curb appeal game is not very strong. In fact, the list of things I’d like to update and change is the same list from last year.
And I quote:
1. beautiful landscaping (?!)
2. a circle drive (?!?!)
3. repairing the sidewalk with the giant crack
4. replacing and repainting the siding
5. removing the Astroturf from the front step
6. replacing the supports with simple wooden ones
The list, it goes on and on.
One Simple Tip To Update and Refresh Your Patio (with Tulsa Garden and Patio Sources)
Though I have accomplished nothing from my wishlist (yet), I did remember one thing from last year about easily improving my curb appeal for the summer:
So I did.
I went to Rancho Flores here in Tulsa, Okla., a garden center and landscape haven, and perused until I saw yellow flowers that tickled my fancy.
I’m going to have my fancy tickled always when I drive up to my home this summer! And that’s nice, right?
Patio Dining, Patio Playdates, Patioscapes (!!!), and other Patio Dreams
So, how’s your patio game? Did you make a list of patio aspirations (that may or may not have been realistic)? Or are you more down to earth about your patio dreams and desires? Does anyone else dream of entertaining on your patio and, if so, what’s your to-do list around that? How about patio playdates?
What’s your favorite one-simple-patio-refresh-trick? We’re dying to know. Tell us your secrets in the comments.
(Daly wanted me to mention that you should be sure to see my patio from last year in a post that features me watering my plants.)
