Grow Deck-Worthy Plants

For many Colorado homeowners, their decks and patios are a way to show off all the beautiful flowers they’re growing. The end of spring is the perfect time to start picking out your flower pots and growing because before you know it, it will be summer and you’ll be trying to compete with your neighbors for who can have the nicest looking patio or deck.

Balance is really important when it comes to flowers on your patio. You want to have a good selection of flower types and colors. You also don’t want to overdo it. Flowers are beautiful, but if your guests are choking because your deck is so overcrowded with flowers, you might want to remove some.

Add Lighting

We feel like a broken record repeating this in so many of our blogs. But honestly, you won’t know how great it is to have lighting on your deck and yard until you take a chance and give it a try for yourself. It may seem like a simple addition, but it really is a lot more than that. Lighting around your deck or on your pergola can really spruce up your deck and give it a nice nighttime vibe. You can have lighting installed on your stairs in order to improve safety and throughout your lawn to make it usable during a nice summertime backyard party.


On top of all of this, lighting is a relatively cheap way to make your deck and yard look nice. Most lighting fixtures can be bought for several dollars a piece. Whereas more fancy ones can go upwards of 100 dollars. It’s really up to you how much you invest in it. If you’re concerned about cost, make sure you budget your project beforehand.
