Potted plants are an easy solution to enhance the appeal of any outdoor space. Place a collection of pots in a corner to bring greenery to your balcony, create interest on your patio or to enhance the privacy of your outdoor area.

This summer host a movie night in your backyard. All you’ll need is a projector and a laptop, a power source, wireless speakers and a large white sheet to use as the cinema screen. Lay out a few blankets, outdoor cushions, bean bags and position your outdoor lounge ready for a night of entertainment.
