Knowing that we will be watering the sod like crazy in the back yard, and full sun in the afternoon, Stephen will put up a shade structure asap. This daybed is a great idea. Outdoor pillows and cover a twin mattress with some vinyl covered flannel material, will be so adorable
Create a View : Here, a simple pergola creates a view that gives this small front yard a grand feel. Arbors and pergolas are great ways to frame a view, but you can do the same with shrubs, small trees, or even pieces of garden art.
