  1. Outdoor lighting

As the sun sets, your outdoor lighting sets the tone for the rest of the evening. Depending on your space, there are plenty of options. You can hang string lights on the deck or between trees, hang sconces, or use solar lights to illuminate areas that are harder to see at night.

  1. Add plants and/or garden

Not only is gardening relaxing, but adding a lot of greenery to your outdoor space can make for excellent outdoor decor and help bring the final touches to your space. This can be anything from building your own planters, hanging plants, or even installing shrubs and bushes to help give your space some extra privacy.

  1. Add a pergola

Pergolas help extend your outdoor living space. It gives enough shade to make a warm summer evening more enjoyable. Do you love a good DIY? You can find pergola kits that come with all the parts needed. This is a great cheaper option instead of having a contractor come and build.
