*Create an outdoor dining space for your family and friends! Guests will be sure to compliment you on your create dining space! Hang bistro lights. I know it may sound small, but bistro lights make everything a little classier. They add great ambiance lighting.Set a path.
*Create a nice walk way using natural stones or pavers. A nice stone path is a great addition to a garden or flower bed. Once you set the stones in gravel you can add bark mulch in between the stones or plant small “step-able plants”
