Spring & Summer Patio Trends For 2017

I have decided to put some effort into my backyard. It’s a great space that I don’t get much use out of. I think it’s because it needs a little work. I want to create an outdoor oasis where I can relax, entertain and work. I love entertaining and I love being home. To be honest, if I can bring the fiesta to my backyard, I don’t think it’s necessary to leave. Besides, I am jealous of my neighbor’s backyard, it’s pretty amazing.

Since I am on a mission to give my backyard some life, I thought I should let you in on a few of the top patio spring and summer trends. The sun is shining, my tulips are blooming, I am so excited for patio season!

Cindy Jardim, Style and Trends Director from Lowe’s Canada, is here to help. Here are four style trends that will make your outdoor oasis your favourite destination all spring and summer. Books, champagne, relaxing, friends and laughter is what it’s all about – backyard vibes.
