An appealing planter sets exactly the right accent in your open-air paradise. Depending on the type of plant, a climbing aid or a trellis can also bring out your blooming stars in a fantastic way.

You benefit in three ways from a smart bamboo curtain in front of your patio door: it keeps annoying insects out of the apartment, lets in a fresh spring breeze and gives the passage to the terrace an exotic touch.
5. Do n’t forget to take care of the garden !
No matter which garden style you have decided on, not only the preparation of the garden after winter should be on the program these days. When the sun shines warmer and warmer from the sky in the course of spring, watering the lawn, trees and bushes in particular should not be neglected, so that you can let your eyes rest on a lush green for the entire outdoor season!
6. Keep your outdoor area tidy!
When the work is done, the garden tools naturally want to be neatly stowed away so that they are not in the way or unnecessarily attracting glances while playing with the children or spending time with guests. A tool corner stand can provide a practical remedy here. Or set up a useful equipment cabinet in which you can effortlessly store all of the gardening tools you need every day.
By the way: The seat pads for your garden furniture are best stowed away in an elegant chest bench. This also offers a comfortable seat for you and your guests.
7. Let your mind wander in your dream garden!
When was the last time you leaned back comfortably and just drifted? – In your open-air idyll, a comfortable swing will bring this feeling back to you. Or sit back on the terrace and enjoy the sunset in an outdoor rocking chair after a warm, bright day.

Even the most beautiful spring day comes to an end at some point. But you don’t have to sit in the dark for a long time: A small fire not only provides cozy, flickering light, but also provides pleasant warmth on cooler evenings. Energy-efficient LED lights with solar charging and practical ground spikes ensure that the path to the garden gate is not only atmospheric but also safe . Of course, you can also opt for alternative garden lights such as garden plugs or fairy lights.
