Updating your outdoor space for spring

Updating your outdoor space for spring

Welcome to the season of fresh blooms, chirping birds, and longer days! With winter finally melting away, it's time to start thinking about sprucing up your outdoor living space to make the most of the spring season. As the snow melts and the temperatures rise in beautiful New Hampshire, here are some delightful spring home decorating ideas to transform your outdoor space into a welcoming oasis.


  1. Add Pops of Color with Flowers and Plants

One of the easiest and most effective ways to add a burst of freshness to your outdoor living space is through flowers and plants. Visit your local nursery or garden center, such as Osborne’s Farm & Garden or Shady Hill Greenhouse & Nursery, and select a variety of colorful flowers and plants that thrive in the New Hampshire climate, such as daffodils, tulips, and pansies. Plant them in pots or flower beds or hang them in baskets for a pop of color that will instantly brighten up your outdoor space.


  1. Create a Cozy Seating Area

Make your outdoor living space inviting and comfortable by creating a cozy seating area. Invest in some weather-resistant outdoor furniture, such as a comfortable sofa or chairs, and add soft cushions and throws in cheerful spring colors. Complete the look with a coffee table or side tables for snacks and drinks, and you'll have a perfect spot for relaxing or entertaining guests in your outdoor space.


  1. Install Outdoor Lighting

Extend the enjoyment of your outdoor living space into the evening with outdoor lighting. String fairy lights or install solar-powered lights along pathways, trees, and fences to create a warm and inviting ambiance. You can also place lanterns or candles on your outdoor dining table or hang them from tree branches to add a touch of romance to your spring evenings in New Hampshire.


  1. Incorporate Fresh Spring Textiles

Swap out heavy winter fabrics for light and breezy textiles that evoke the freshness of spring. Replace your winter doormat with a colorful and welcoming mat that greets guests with a cheerful "hello." Change your outdoor cushions and pillows to bright, patterned fabrics that add a pop of color and a touch of playfulness to your outdoor seating area. Consider adding outdoor curtains or drapes to create a cozy nook or to provide some privacy.


  1. Add Outdoor Art and Décor

Don't forget to add some artistic touches to your outdoor living space. Hang a colorful piece of artwork or a decorative mirror on an outdoor wall to create a focal point. Place a statement piece, such as a sculpture or a fountain, as a conversation starter. Add some whimsical garden decorations, such as bird feeders, wind chimes, or garden stakes, to bring charm and character to your outdoor space.


  1. Create a Herb or Vegetable Garden

Spring is the perfect time to start a herb or vegetable garden in New Hampshire. Create a small herb or vegetable garden in your outdoor space to enjoy fresh, homegrown produce throughout the season. Choose herbs or vegetables that grow well in the New Hampshire climate, such as basil, cilantro, lettuce, or tomatoes, and plant them in pots or raised beds. Not only will it add a functional element to your outdoor space, but it will also add a touch of natural beauty and freshness.


  1. Incorporate Water Features

The sound of flowing water can be soothing and calming, and it adds a sense of serenity to any outdoor space. Consider incorporating a water feature, such as a fountain or a small pond, to your outdoor living space. The sound of trickling water will create a tranquil atmosphere and add a touch of elegance to your outdoor oasis.
