The first thing I think about when I want to create an inspiring outdoor space is well maintained shrubs, lush greenery, and colorful blooms.  Every outdoor living area can be enhanced with healthy and long lasting Monrovia plants. I thought I’d put together some tips for how to create an inspiring outdoor space.

Tip #1: Shop for the best.

We spend a lot of time in our backyard as well as our pool area. These areas are surrounded by colorful flowers and healthy shrubs. You can shop Monrovia for plants that will work for your climate and zip code. There you will also find free gardening tips that are specific to the plants you choose.

Tip #2: Ask for help.

Visit your local garden center or a Lowes near you to shop for Monrovia plants. Just look for the green Monrovia pots and tags. That’s what I did! Then, track down one of the garden experts to help you choose the best plants to achieve the look and feel what you want for your outdoor space.

Tip #3: Use fresh cut flowers.

Here in So Cal, I have to constantly prune my rose bushes. I have over two dozen! So, I like to put roses in vases and place them around the pool when we entertain. If you need tips on pruning roses I wrote a post on basic tips for watering and pruning roses.

Tip #4: Create a cozy space with outdoor pillows.

Pillows are not only a great way to add style and color, but they are comfortable. I place blue and green pillows on all the chairs any time we have people over or even if it’s just our little family of four out for a swim.
