Outdoor spaces such as the garden, front yard or patio should always be equipped with weather resistant attractive furnishings. Decorating the exterior of your house improves curb appeal and also creates another usable space which feels like home. Your outdoor living space should always look and fell like it's an extension of the inside. The DIY outdoor decor ideas mentioned in this ideabook work to enhance the beauty of the exterior of your home. In this book of ideas we bring to you some small, and simple ideas to beautify the patio or garden.

1. Blinds and a vertical garden

Vertical gardens add a different dimension to the area in which it's placed. If you do not have sufficient space to accommodate a garden, a vertical garden is your best bet. Create one with blinds that you suspend on the wall. Be sure to add some sort of rung or support to this so that you can place your favorite pots and plants!

2. Original flowerpots with succulents for the garden

If you don't have space for a garden, you can choose to line the rungs of a ladder with potted plants. For a low maintenance garden you can opt for cactus or succulents belonging to the same family. Pick out colorful pots and you are good to go!

3. Rest in a hammock and play in a tent in the garden

How about your own little retreat in the garden? With this lovely idea, there are more chance of you being outdoors than indoors! A simple tent can be created with cloth and pillows. For the hammock, an old hanger suspended with rope should do the trick.

4. An outdoor garden

8. A beautiful tree in a corner of the garden

Bougainvillea is an excellent addition to any balcony, garden or patio. It has the ability to light up the area. They tend to grow in a cluster which is what contributes to the beauty they add. Place them in the corner of your backyard and have them encircle the railings and pillars in this manner.
