Soak Up Some Natural Beauty with a Rustic Outdoor Living Area

Soak Up Some Natural Beauty with a Rustic Outdoor Living Area

 

If you have a patio, it can be really pleasant to spend your evenings there, on a chair or a swing, sipping a glass of iced tea and reading a book. But in order to create this type of outdoor living area, you have to design it the right way. In addition to growing plants and flowers in your backyard, you have to cover it, furnish it and light it in a way that will encourage you and your family to kick back and relax.

Furniture

Some people cut down the trees in their garden in order to create an expanse of grass. But instead of doing this, you can get your tree trimmed and use it as part of your gardening design. If you don’t have the shade of a fully-grown tree, you can create a shady area with a patio cover and place your furniture there. This will be a great way to look out on the rest of the backyard and enjoy the greenery.

A patio cover can provide shade for a table and two chairs if you think you might want to eat out in the garden sometimes, with your significant other. Or if you think that you might want to sit outdoors and read a book, then you can hang a swing from the patio cover and enjoy the breeze on your face while you read. You can also create a little nook with a loveseat and a coffee table; it’s romantic and comfortable at the same time.

Path

Consider building a path in your garden. It should not be a straight path but a winding one which has a rustic, natural feel. And if this path leads through the seating you have set up under the tree or under a patio cover, then that will encourage you to spend more time there, soaking in the feeling of being in the midst of nature. You can also have your path going through a pergola which has an old-world charm; you’ll feel like you stepped right out of a Jane Austen novel.

Lighting

Little fairy lights can also give your garden a beautiful, magical look. You can line your garden path with lights or place a couple of candles on the table under your tree. Make sure you get a candleholder though because an open flame is likely to get blown out with a gust of wind. A fire pit is also a great way of lighting up your backyard; it creates that carefree feeling you have when you make a bonfire. It can be romantic and fun.

What Is Stamped Concrete?

What Is Stamped Concrete?

Stamped concrete is the type of concrete that you probably see a lot of the time when you are out in public going shopping, or just taking a walk with your dog out in the park. The “stamped” part in “stamped concrete” is exactly what it sounds like.

The first step in creating stamped concrete is pouring the concrete and making it the base color that you want. Then, an accent color is added to the flat concrete to give it a little flair. After those couple things are done, it is then time for the stamping of the concrete. The concrete is literally stamped with tools that are made to make the concrete into whatever stamped design you picked out. All of this is, of course, done by the wonderful workers at Houston Concrete in Houston, Texas.

Stamped concrete can be used in many different places and for lots of different things, including; pool decks, sidewalks, patios, and driveways in the more prestigious neighborhoods.
