Quick Tips For An Outdoor Space Update
Summer is here and even though the Fourth of July is just around the corner, it’s not too late to get your outdoor space ready for relaxing summer evenings entertaining friends and family by the grill!
Save Time, Shop Local
Local nurseries are full of professionals who understand the growing conditions of our area. With no time to waste, you’ll find these shops to be a valuable resource in understanding the plants and landscape materials that will thrive if planted now. Their expertise and vast selection of mature plants will make your backyard update effortless.
We stopped by Tides Magazine Partner in Pawleys Island, True Blue Nursery, to check out accents for your outdoor space including decor, seating, plants, shrubbery and trees available today that can assist you in updating your space for the summer.
Easy Summer Updates To Your Outdoor Space
- Create Natural Barriers - Using mature evergreens and trees that have beautiful foliage can help define your space and help to create additional privacy in lue of a fence.
