Poinsettias are in season and their vibrant red, white or pink hues, combined with their green leaves, are enough to add color to any gray and dismal outdoor area. Go to your local supermarket or nursery and stock up on a few of these plants. You can keep them in containers or plant beds outside, but bring them back inside or cover them up if the outdoor temperatures get extremely cold or if a freeze is expected. Be sure to keep them away from pets though. Poinsettias are only mildly toxic to animals, but it's better safe than sorry!

LED lights are always a good choice because they are so energy-efficient. You don't have to get too Christmas-y for them to look good either. A few strands of simple white lights are enough to make any outdoor living space look elegant. There's a fine line between nice and overdone. Be sure to be reasonable about the amount of lights you use.

Some factors you need to consider include your budget, the condition of the existing concrete, and how much disruption you're willing to tolerate. If the concrete is in excellent condition, for example, then you may want to simply stain the surface, or perhaps give it a textured coating. These options are quickly and easily performed by a specialized contractor.

Pergolas are made with a flatted top with a shape that is vertical to straight sides and can be small to cover up a walkway or large enough to cover a patio or deck area. On the other hand, the arches are generally used as fence gate or over walkways.
Jacquelyn Parks Patio, 2017-12-16 21:37:06. Let's take a look at some of the materials that you can choose for arches and pergolas. The options vary greatly, but they mostly include wood, metal or vinyl. You have to consider all the pros and cons to choose the right material for your needs and situation. Wood can give these structures a natural and rustic look. You have the option to add paint or stain to change the appearance of the wood at any time. This material is usually more cost effective, but it will not last as long as vinyl or metal.

Some use glass mosaics and copper to produce a vintage look. Either way, metal fire pits will add significant aesthetic value to your patio. They are composed of many different materials, including steel, copper, slate, glass and even granite. You will easily find a style that matches your current patio decor.

The major advantage of purchasing online is selection. Most of the top internet retailers offer the top brands, like Hunter Douglas, Levolor, Bali, Graber Comfortex and Kirsch, at discount prices. If you are like me and have trouble buying without seeing, you can go to a traditional brick and mortar store. You can purchase your window treatments there or take the information back to your online search armed with more specific information.

Paver edge restraint and soldier course should be added to prevent spreading and a layer of joint sand employed, which is to be swept into the cracks. Polymeric sand is suggested, which will harden after it has been added. Although not mandatory, this is a good idea to curtail insects \"moving\" the joint sand and week growth in the cracks in the patio.

Full range is my favorite. There is a mix of colors within each stone consisting of blue, gold-brown (from iron) and some other tones.
