Tell us about your outdoor project and how you enjoy it: The house gets really hot in the summer so this is the defacto living room for many months of the year. This was a total bargain space - kmart furniture, reclaimed planters and some craigslist and Ikea accents.
How did you create it? The space really created itself....it was pretty clear what would work and what wouldn't....all that I did was maximize the space for relaxation and added containers for herbs and a meyer lemon tree since the patio is right off the kitchen. The other planters with the tiger's tail create a screen to obscure the driveway.
Recommended store, site, product or resource? Sunset Nursery, Martha Stewart furniture, craigslist.
