Easy Tips for Building Outdoor Entertainment Spaces
·     The Basics
Create structure and give guests a comfortable place to sit, sip, and stay a while with stylish, durable patio furniture. When deciding what furniture is best, the experts recommend taking the sizes of both the outdoor space and guest list into consideration. Dining sets are great for larger parties, while a cozy, over-sided seating group is ideal for small get-togethers. If the goal is to create a nook to read and sip coffee, a hanging basket or Adirondack chair are great additions. Finally, a grill will complete the ultimate entertainment space, and don’t forget to add a side table for coffee or cocktails!
Image·     Fill Large Voids
Once the patio furniture is in place, homeowners should step back to see if there are large areas of the landscape, deck, or patio that beckon for more. Consider the addition of shrubs, fountains, or a walkway to fill those voids.
·     Vertical Interest
Dazzle guests with elements of interest at every viewpoint!  Add vertical highlights to any outdoor space by incorporating colorful hanging baskets, climbing vines, or shady trees.
Image·     Functionality
The Pike Nurseries experts recommend adding personal touches to outdoor spaces for increased functionality.  For example, culinary enthusiasts can incorporate herb containers, veggies, or even a potted dwarf citrus tree for quick garden-to-grill meals, while nature-lovers should consider adding pollinators such as salvia, lantana, or a butterfly bush to bring fluttering friends to the garden.
·     It’s all in the Details
Refresh and renew any space with additional decor!  For daytime gatherings, homeowners can add pops of color with decorative throw pillows and tabletop planters with blooming flowers or easy-care succulents.  Create special evening ambiance with the addition of string lights, garden stakes, or ornamental globes.
