Vertical Garden

Don’t let limited space hinder your gardening dreams. A vertical garden is a perfect way to grow flowers and herbs on your porch or balcony. There are ample styles to choose from and plenty of possibilities for plants. Depending on your climate, you could plant succulents, an herb garden, or bright flowers. These options are sure to brighten your space and make a statement without taking up too much space or needing in-ground access.

Bench Seating

Utilizing a bench for seating instead of chairs is an excellent way to seat more people with less space. Benches can also fit under windows or against walls where a chair may block the window or stick out against a wall. For extra outdoor storage, you can choose a bench that doubles as a hidden cabinet. You can keep outdoor toys, firewood, throw pillows, and more inside them.

Outdoor Rug

Bringing your personal style outside can be difficult to decorate your outdoor area. The rug can also help keep the area clean and help the space to feel more comfortable to you and your guests!

Multi-Use Furniture

With limited space, multi-purpose outdoor furniture can transform a space. Consider a table with a removable top that can double as a fire pit or cooler, or maybe chairs with built-in cup holders. Items like these can help clear up space, so you can add more personal decor and make it easier to make the most of your outdoor space.

Faux Grass

Faux grass, or artificial turf, can provide many comforts and improve your outdoor space's appearance. On a porch or balcony, where you can’t have real grass, faux grass can provide the look and feel of a real lawn and green space without any maintenance. Faux grass also looks excellent between pavers on a patio. Overall, artificial grass is a simple, affordable, and low-maintenance method to brighten up and elevate your outdoor area.

Hanging Plants

If you are looking to add more greenery and more decor to your outdoor area, hanging plants can be an aesthetically pleasing solution. If you are concerned about keeping beautiful plants healthy, you can also opt for faux plants that will last forever without having to remember to water them.

Outdoor Lighting

Just as inside your home, lighting can transform an outdoor space. There are several methods for outdoor lighting that avoid hard wiring and long cords, such as battery-powered uplighting, string lights, and rope lighting are ideal and can last months or even years. If your outdoor space is in direct sunlight, solar lights can line walkways and help people find their way at night.
