If you’re looking for an easy way to transform your backyard into a secret garden, consider adding some plants. No rule says your outdoor space has to be devoid of flora. Adding some greenery can do wonders for your home’s curb appeal and even provide additional entertainment for family members who enjoy gardening as much as you do. Not sure how? Here are a few ideas on how to create an outdoor space that feels like the ideal retreat from city life:
Add some pretty wall decor of art
Add decorations like some plants and some flowers. You could also add some mirrors, like those above the sink or on the wall beside your patio table (which is an awesome place for a vase). You can also hang them from the ceiling! Or you could use them for decoration inside the house instead of outside. If you like the idea of hanging wall plants and flowers but don’t want to have to maintain and look after them (particularly in the colder winter months), you might decide to go for an artificial option instead, such as the ones offered by suppliers like Grass Warehouse. This will give you a realistic finish, without any maintenance required.
Add lights! They’re not just for Christmas anymore—you can use them year-round to illuminate your space at night and keep away those pesky mosquitoes from biting into your bare legs while enjoying coffee in bed at 2 am before heading off to work tomorrow morning after sleeping through half of yesterday’s movie marathon with friends over dinner last night…
Bring the outdoors in
Bringing the outdoors in is a great way to add some greenery and natural beauty to your gazebo. Here are some plants that are easy to care for:
Succulents (also known as cacti) – these plants require little maintenance, but they do need water!
English Ivy – this plant grows best in moist soil, so it’s ideal for indoor spaces like patios or balconies. It will also hang from its vines over doors and windowsills if you keep it indoors during the winter months.

Get creative with trees, shrubs, and vines
If you want to add a touch of nature to your patio, consider using a variety of plants. Choose from vines, trees, and shrubs that are native to your area or in season (or both). You can also use drought-tolerant plants like sagebrush or cactus, deer and rabbit-resistant plants like juniper trees, or easy-to-maintain plants such as roses.
Add a little shade
You can also provide shade by adding awnings, canopies, and umbrellas. You may choose to use these items in addition to the structure itself or instead of it. Awnings and umbrellas are often used when they don’t require much maintenance; however, they can be expensive if you have more frequent use. Canopies are usually made out of wood or fabric and require less upkeep than an awning does; however, they are harder to install because they have more parts than just one frame.
Canopies attach directly to your gazebo structure via brackets or screws—they do not come with any sort of base unless you decide to purchase one separately before purchasing your canopy!
When choosing between permanent vs. temporary solutions:
Permanent: These types will last longer than temporary versions because there’s no need for re-attaching them every time after each season ends when using them regularly over time… but remember that this means paying more upfront costs upfront too!
Color block to add visual pop
If you are looking for a way to add a pop of color to your patio gazebo, then this is the way to do it. Color blocking has been around for years now, and it’s still going strong! The idea behind color blocking is simple; you use one predominant color and then use another complementary or contrasting one on either side of that dominant hue. For example: red/blue or yellow/green (or any combination).
What makes this style so popular? It’s easy! You just have to choose some great colors that complement each other while still standing out from everything else around them. If you’re looking for something more modern, consider using neutrals such as black or white instead of bright ones like orange or yellow-green (although those can work, too!).
Use cedar to give your gazebo a snug vibe
Putting cedar in your patio gazebo is a natural choice. Cedar is a durable, renewable material that provides a cozy and warm feeling to the space. It’s also easy to maintain and clean, making it an ideal choice for any outdoor area. In addition, cedar has natural antimicrobial properties that help keep mold and mildew at bay—a must if you want to prevent rot from setting in!
Whether you have a small space or a large one, there are several ways to incorporate some of this wood into your gazebo. Your first step should be purchasing some cedar planks at home improvement stores like Lowe’s or Home Depot (or online). You can then start building up the sides until they form something like an arch over where people will sit during parties; this makes them feel like they’re sitting inside their private garden!
