What good does your space do without somewhere to sit? Luckily, you can find some amazing pieces to suit your style at your local Orscheln Farm & Home. But before you head out to buy, think about your expectations of the area - Do you want to dine outdoors? How many pieces would fit in the space? What would work well with kids, pets and guests? How do you want it to flow with the landscaping? Figuring this out beforehand will prevent impulse buys and future disappointment.

Pops of color, sweet fragrances and even production of fresh food are just a few perks of growing plants on your patio or deck. You could go so far as creating an entire vertical wall of plants!

And of course you can find vegetables, flowers, and a variety of unique planters throughout Spring at Orscheln!

Sure, a simple motion-activated outdoor light will suffice to prevent stumbling around in the dark on those warm summer nights. But it just can't compete with the ambience of a small, rolling fire pit or cute decorative lanterns. Even small solar stakes surrounding the perimeter of your patio can make a huge difference.


There you have it folks! If you keep a patio makeover this simple, it could be completed in one weekend! We'd love to hear your ideas or experiences with updating your space, so feel free to leave a comment below.
