Love these plants for the front planter box - create a sense of privacy at the front door. Shade loving container gardening, planters for front porch, ferns, hydrangea and sweet potato vine. Gorgeous and welcoming.
The wooden furniture and the fireplace would be a perfect combination for great patio idea. If you have an outside pool, you can use this idea to create your own pool patio. The calm atmosphere that this patio creates, will be a perfect relaxing spot.
