To change things up, the deck should be renovated to suit the time of year. With the arrival of spring comes an opportunity to spruce up the deck in season-specific decorations. Follow these spring deck decoration tips to give the outdoor living space a fresh appearance.
Add an Outdoor Rug
Hardly anyone ever thinks about a rug for the outdoors. Rugs are stylish and protect the wooden deck from foot traffic. Most outdoor rugs are made from all-weather fiber, similar to the material of your typical door mat.
Incorporate Head-High Plants
Spring means lush plants, so adorn your deck with a lot of greens. Add tall plants along the borders of the deck for increased privacy. Some good choices include Solomon’s Seals, spotted joe-pye weed, dracaenas, and scheffleras.
Add a Fire Bowl
Fire bowls make great addition to any deck or patio table, especially if you like sitting around a personal fire. Make your own using a terra-cotta bowl filled to the brim with tumbled recycled glass and clean burning gel alcohol.
Hang Paper Lanterns
Add the Sound of Water
The addition of a freestanding fountain with a recirculating pump provides the soothing background noise of a running stream. It’s therapeutic for the ears and adds to the serene vibe.
Hang a Birdhouse
Invite nature’s creatures to your deck with a birdhouse. The presence of nesting birds adds a more natural ambiance to the scene.
Bring Your Deck Up to Par
Even new decorations won’t improve appearance much if the deck itself is visibly worn. Contact Allied Construction to have the deck remodeled. This way, spring decorations for the deck will more effectively complement the outdoor living area as a whole.
