Enjoy this repost of some fun and frugal backyard living ideas from the Marc & Mandy Show…
We think having great outdoor furniture is a must for any home! Here are some of Marc & Mandy’s favourites!
1. Eco-Friendly Chairs
This line of eco-friendly furniture is made entirely from recycled milk jugs! It bears a resemblance to wood and, as an added perk, the maintenance for this material is extremely low. Pieces are available in a variety of bright colours that are sure to add a fun touch to your deck or patio! (PorticoLiving.ca)
2. The Hammock Chair
A hammock chair is a great addition to any home! These come in a variety of colors and styles and provide a great place to relax and enjoy the summer sun. Plus, they take up less space then a traditional hammock making them a great choice for a small balcony, boat house, screen porch or gazebo!
3. Vertical Wall Gardens
Vertical wall gardens are very trendy right now. You can fill them with artificial succulents or real plants, depending on your green thumb abilities. You can also use them indoors, for instance in your kitchen, to create an herb garden.
4. The Plant Nanny
If you dont have much of a green thumb, this product might be for you! Pair it with a regular empty bottle from around the house and the plant nanny reads the soil, releasing just the right amount of moisture to sustain your plant.
5. Decorative Downspouts
Traditionally, downspouts serve a strictly practical purpose and you may not give much thought into the aesthetic of the device. Decorative downspouts push water away from your home in a way that allows the water to cascade down in waterfall-like motion lending visual and auditory appeal to your homes exterior.
