Your patio or yard could easily be the most inviting part of your home. With that in mind, we’ll look at a few ways that you can make the most of your outdoor space to entertain your guests.
One of the most important choices to make is seating; you want your guests to be comfortable for long periods of time. Be sure to choose pieces that will ensure your guests will be relaxed and that fit your space. You can either have your seating facing each other in a circle or break them up and spread them out. Fire pits are a great addition to any outdoor space, and be sure to include plenty of side tables for your guests. A large table can be vital; it can be used for cookouts, games or other entertainment purposes.
Lighting can play a big part in your outdoor design, whether that be candles, lanterns or even hanging lights. You want to make sure your guests are comfortable even after the sun goes down.

When you think of outdoor art, what sort of items come to mind? You might imagine a beautifully designed landscape, a detailed, over-sized fountain, or even a simple field of flowers. For Henry Moore, his sights were set on creating naturally-themed art with outdoor sculptures.
Seen as one of the 20th century’s most respectable sculptors, Moore designed pieces that were both primitive in nature and modern for his time. His priority was to create art that could be enjoyed in an outdoor setting that would bring out the sculpture’s earth-like characteristics. He once said, “Sculpture is an art of the open air.”
His passion for this sculpture art led him to win numerous awards and for his work to be featured in dozens of galleries. His work is a tribute to the notion that our outdoor spaces are the perfect place to display our passion for creativity! For inspiration, simply visit our shop at Marvin Gardens.

Of course you can bring in color with flowers, but don’t forget about colorful garden accessories like pretty pots and planters, cushions, pillows and more.
Pay attention to the colors you have to work with, like existing landscaping, pavement and walls. Then make your new colors match or blend for a cohesive and well-thought-out look.
Determine the mood you’re going for and select colors that portray it.
