Autumn is here already, and the yard needs sweeping. After all that work, try relaxing a bit and take time to appreciate nature's best in the outdoors. So what better way to relax than basking in the scenery, being with family and friends.

Enhancing one's outdoor space may seem like a heavy project for some, but the rewards are what makes doing it worthwhile. Yahoo.com recently featured an article detailing some simple tips on how to upgrade the outdoors. Take time to read them below:

  • A front porch or deck can look more lively with the addition of a few swinging chairs or bench. Complete the look with an array of colorful potted plants like sunny sunflowers or orchids, and enjoy afternoon tea or soulful evenings with loved ones. Additionally, this scene alone could also make for a perfect night out - literally. 
  • If on a bigger budget or thinking of doing something extra for an outdoor updo, why not build a gazebo and have it as an extension to the deck as another area to entertain guests. Check out some lovely gazebo designs here.
  • Still in the same article, potted plants can always enhance the look of the outdoors - whether it's just some small space. Lemon balm, marigolds, lavender and citronella are just few potted plants that not only act as added aesthetics, but they also serve as protection against those dreadful mosquitoes. 

In a previous post on eco-chick.com, transforming one's outdoor space into one that is eco-friendly can be done in a lot of ways. An example would be having accessories, such as outdoor furniture. Trending nowadays are the use of solar power lights that add atmosphere, as well as them being cost-effective. Also, try looking for garden furniture such as loungers, and those made out of oak. These alternative outdoor furniture options are not just comfortable, but they're also stylish at the same time.
