Keep your outdoor furniture looking neat and your patio looking organized by choosing a few key pieces for your patio, such as a furniture set, foliage, an accent piece or two and that's all. People often try to add too many pieces to their patio and the result is usually messy and cluttered.
Keep patio furniture to a minimum and be sure to choose pieces that are functional, able to withstand the elements as well as aesthetically pleasing. Patio covers are also a good idea, whether you go large-scale with awnings or a large umbrella or small-scale with furniture covers or outdoor cushions.
