Add Color to Your Patio

Did you know that curb appeal is the first thing that buyers notice when they are searching for the perfect home?

A way to bring color to your patio is adding plants and flowers. It is a good idea to add function to the plants and flowers you choose to display on your patio. For an example try and use plants that repel mosquitoes and other insects for a more enjoyable experience while your out on your patio. Citronella, Lemon Grass, and Basil are great plants that repel mosquitoes and will add green color to your patio. Geraniums, Marigolds, and Lavender will also repel mosquitoes and add a variety of color. All of these plants and flowers can be easily found at your local garden centers or nurseries.

Refreshing planter boxes or pots will add color and style to your patio. Creating planters out of old pallets and crates will help add to memories and a great conversation piece. Garage sales are a great place to find old planter boxes or pots that could use some sprucing up. It is best to add a variety of shapes and sizes to have contrast throughout your design. Hanging planters are a nice touch when added height and provide privacy.
