Creating an Outdoor Oasis: Try These 3 Easy Ways to Enhance Your Patio Space

Spring is a great time to freshen up the yard and patio and add life to your outdoor living space with natural and seasonally-inspired elements. To help, we’ve gathered a few key tips for how to make your outdoor oasis one of your favorite places to be!

#1 – Decorate It

Freshen Up with This Year’s Colors

Bright, bold colors are trending inside and outside the home. Create a bright, inviting oasis with: 

  • Reds
  • Oranges
  • “Tropicalcore” colors – beachy yellows and vibrant blues

If bold, bright colors aren’t your thing, try jewel tones instead. Either way, Hamrick’s has colorful outdoor accessories to fit your budget, style, and the latest trends!

Pro tip! Want to integrate color, but also love the timeless look of neutral patio furniture? Natural materials and earth tones make a great base for brighter accessories. You can keep the core pieces neutral from year to year but swap out other items to match this year’s trending colors!

Have Fun with Your Decor

Try adding pops of color, patterns, and visual interest to your patio with accessories like:

  • Outdoor cushions & throw pillows
  • Outdoor area rugs to help define your space
  • Cozy blankets to keep you warm on cool nights
  • Decorative signs, sculptures, or gnomes to add whimsy
  • Seasonal mailbox covers & yard flags
  • String lights or lanterns  
  • A decorative mirror to amplify space 

Shop your local Hamrick’s store to make the space your own with incredible prices on garden essentials, outdoor furniture, and more!

#2 – Cultivate It

Plants are a great way to infuse your personal oasis with life! Even if you’re a brand-new gardener, you can add color, texture, and life to your space in a way suited to your skill and budget.

Need help deciding between perennials vs. annuals? Perennial plants survive from year to year; annuals typically live only one season. Try planting a mix, so you don’t restart from scratch next year, but can still enjoy popular annuals like marigolds, impatiens, and petunias.

Pro tip! Are plastic or terracotta (clay) pots better? It depends on your needs. Plastic pots are more affordable and come in a variety of colors. Terracotta pots are more expensive but more weather-resistant.

#3 – Furnish It

Comfortable seating is a must for your oasis! Depending on space, you may want pieces like: 

  • A dining set
  • Beach-style lounge chairs or Adirondack chairs
  • A cozy loveseat
  • An expansive sectional
  • Trendy hanging chairs

Whatever combination of seating you choose, group them to encourage conversation and coziness. Then, add a coffee table or end tables to keep a refreshing drink nearby. 

Pro tip! Don’t forget shade! Consider a patio umbrella, a sun shade, or a nice pop-up canopy to keep you cool while enjoying the outdoors. Be ready for those hot days with this patio dining set and umbrella, available at Hamrick’s for an incredible price.
