These landscape designers' tips can help you turn your boring backyard into a spectacular outdoor retreat.
Unique Outdoor Furniture
Though your backyard is an open space, you can create a room without putting up a wall by adding outdoor furniture, water features or plants and pots. In terms of outdoor furniture, it's good to stay away from iron, which is heavy, difficult to move and quick to rust. Instead, try aluminum, which is easy to move around and withstands the elements. In addition, most manufacturers are using more weather-resistant fabrics on their outdoor furniture.
