Help! Any suggestions on what to do to create a cozy entertaining space on my deck? I would love some sort of shade, but not sure what can be done, if anything? Also, would like a nice fire pit area, but it cannot cost a lot of money. Any suggestions for the deck, patio and fire pit would be wonderful! TIA!! Also, I did find a patio set with a coffee table, loveseat and 2 chairs, the cushions on it are a mild green. Have not purchased yet, but considering. Wish I could do a pondless waterfall on our hill, but I think that is pretty expensive!!Thanks!!

Kim L on Dec 20, 2013There is nothing like adding a pergola, a retractable awning, perhaps some lattice work, some deck planters, a small corner continual flow fountain and perhaps some pretty outdoor curtains billowing down the corners of the decking - and some comfy seating!! I can see so many different things to do with what you have!!! As far as your yard goes, try doing some landscaping on your own and surrounding the place with beautiful flowers and plants......maybe some rockwork and a few paths here and there throughout your garden. Add a couple pretty garden benches throughout (you can make them yourself with ideas here on Hometalk) - you'll be surprised at what you can do on your own!!
Lynn on Feb 22, 2016on the deck, i would put up a covered screen house. that shouldn't cost you a great deal. then you would be able to get out of the sun if you want to.
