Eco-Friendly Outdoor Living Ideas

How To / September 3,2013

Summer is almost here, and for most of us that means spending time outside in the garden or on the patio socialising with friends, barbecuing and relaxing in the sun. If you pride yourself on being eco-friendly, we have some wonderful sustainable outdoor living ideas you can incorporate in your home.

 

Reuse and recycle

When remodeling and renovating your outdoor area, look at ways you can use recycled or reclaimed wood. Get creative with concrete and even railroad ties which make for wonderful additions to outdoor spaces.

 

Lighting advice

Replace old lighting fixtures with energy efficient ones. Not only will you reduce your carbon footprint, but you'll watch your power bill go down too.

 

Repurpose

Look at things that are in your garage right now that could be used as a decorative planter on your patio. Once again, it's about getting creative and using a touch of paint or a few extra nails to turn something that was once made redundant into something really useful and beautiful.

 

Outdoor furniture choices

Like any leisure area in your home, you'll want to have the right furniture you can relax in. Generally outdoor furniture can be given a new lease of life with a simple coat of paint once you have found one that you love.
