The weather in New England is getting nicer and spring is just around the corner. The snow is slowly starting to melt on outdoor patios, and we will all be using them again in no time! Patios are great extensions of our homes and always have a lot to offer when the weather is nice and warm. A well-taken care of patio is always great for barbeque parties, relaxation and can even increase the overall value of your home. With all that said, here are five ways you can implement to spruce up your outdoor patio!

Recreation Elements

An outdoor patio is an excellent way to unwind after a day of work. By adding features such as a fire pit, barbaque grill, and seating to your patio, relaxation will be easy to achieve. Having Comfortable furniture, portable tables and a dining table available on your patio is definitely a great idea. There is nothing quite like a summer patio barbaque or sitting around a fire pit on a beautiful spring or summer night with some family or friends.


Having some greenery is always a great idea for an outdoor patio. Plants and flowers on a patio give off a nice ambience and create a much livelier environment. Not only are fresh plants and flowers pleasing to look at, they are also great for the environment! Having well-maintained plants and flowers present on your patio can benefit humans and animals nearby since plants can absorb carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. What types of plants and flowers you put on your patio is up to you, but it is always good to have plants and flowers that match your patio furniture and setting.


Painting or repainting your patio can infuse energy and enthusiasm into your outdoor life. Touching up your patio with some paint will give it life or new life all the while making the patio look as fresh and new as ever. Painting a patio that matches the house color scheme or patio furniture is a good way to go.


Having lights and the proper lighting accessible to your patio is important and can come in handy. Patios can still be great to use and relaxing even when the sun isn’t shining or when the sun is down. A well-lit deck will help create an elegant patio setting and help you see whats going on.


Last but definitely not least, screens are an excellent addition to any patio. While most of us enjoy spending time outside in the summer, we can all agree on just how irritating bugs and insects are during the summertime. Having patio screening can also help combat sun glare when it arises. Some may argue that having patio screening takes away from the patio experience so our suggestion for that would be to install  retractable patio screens. Having patio screens can improve the overall patio experience and definitely help eliminate those annoying, nasty insects from our lives, even if it is just for a bit.
