Want to upgrade your outdoor living space but don’t know where to start? First things first is to have solid place to walk on. Well, start with decking. If you already have a deck then, give it a new polish. Deep clean it and get rid of molds and rots if there are any. However, if you’re planning to build a new deck, then choose Australian hardwood for decking. This kind of timber decking provides strength and long-lasting durability. Hardwood is easy to maintain and is long-wearing, making it an ideal choice for outdoor living. A new patio deck or a well-maintained one will encourage you to enjoy your outdoor space while making your house more attractive and marketable to prospective buyers.
You can craft a stylish and comfortable space by mindfully laying out an exterior design plan that’s economical and sustainable at the same time.
Bring nature to your backyard
Adorn your patio, deck, and backyard with potted plants, hanging planters, and trailing vines. If your patio is on the smaller side, then you can choose to expand your garden vertically. Buy lots of hanging pots and wall planters. You can also display your plants on the fence. Beautifying your fence with different species of dry plants like cactus and succulents will transform your exterior in no time.
Build a Pergola.
If you’re after creating a magical and dreamy backyard, then building a Pergola should be on the top of your list. Thankfully, building a pergola is comparatively easy and not very expensive. You can either choose to build it yourself (especially if you’re on a budget) or hire professional help. Wooden pergolas provide comfortable shade and lend sophisticated style to your outdoor luxury oasis. You can place some playful furniture like a swing chair or a hammock and drape string lights down from the Pergola to achieve that magical look you desire.
String up some mood lighting
Imagine yourself sitting on your lounge chair and gazing at the stars with a glass of wine and soft lighting in the background. Now that you have imagined this, you would want it right away. To create this, you’ll need to invest in outdoor lighting. If your backyard has a garden, then line it up with lanterns and torches. If you have a small patio, then go for accent lighting.

You can also set up a barbeque or hibachi station to enjoy your favorite food under the sky.
