Now that summer is at it's peak all across the country, we tend to spend a lot more time outside, whether it be the garden or patio.
Transform your outdoor space with these few tips and enjoy every moment in your beautiful home.
Make your outside seating area just as comfortable as inside by adding a bench, covered with weather-proof material.
This allows for family and friends to enjoy the outside space just as much as you and is great for entertaining big groups of people.
Add a few scatter cushions to the bench to add an extra touch to soften your patio.
Plants are a great way of adding life and ambiance to an outdoor space. With a wide variety of succelents available in South Africa, making your own pot plant feature wall is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Simply take a few iron rods, rings and Terra Cotta pots.
Fragrant Lemon Grass
Summer comes with it's own fair share of bugs and mosquitoes, which often deter us from enjoying the outdoors, especially in the evenings.
Add fragrant, oversized pots with Lemon grass to your patio area to repel insects and mosquitoes. It also grows big, allowing you to create separate areas on your patio.
The joy of a green lawn in summer far exceeds the heat you often have to endure during the season.
Add extra detail to your beautiful lawn by creating a flowing rock border. This is a great way to separate the lawn from decking or paving.
Having your own herb planter is not only therapeutic, but also a cost effective way on saving on cooking with fresh herbs.
This planter has a herb tray on the top, with a storage area underneath, giving you the best of both worlds, fresh herbs from the garden, as well as a space to store your gardening tools.

Summer evenings are great for enjoying the outdoors. Lighting is one of the best ways to add ambiance and warmth to an outdoor space.
Transform your outdoor area into a summer wonderland by adding fairy lights in the trees and patio area.
Light a fire
Transform your outdoor area into a warm and cozy area by building your own fire pit. A fire pit adds fun and function, especially during the cooler months.
Bring the indoors outdoor
If you have a large patio area, fill this space with beautiful outdoor furniture.
This extends the indoors outdoors, and allows you to entertain outdoors during the warm summer evenings.
