Backyard design inspiration from your Houston neighbors
When it comes to Houston, hardware stores and design centers get it all wrong. They are now selling their garden and porch. It’s like you’ve never been outside during a summer in Houston. It’s hot, humid, and full of bugs.
Unfortunately, once autumn is over and you finally want to swing on the hammock in your garden while the kids play in the kiddy pool, the shops have turned all of their patio furniture, umbrellas, and kiddy pool into pumpkins.
So you need to plan ahead and get all of the supplies you will need for your garden remodeling, even if you have to wait until September for it to get cool enough for you to actually garden for a day, all together.
To help you out, Chron.com has rounded up some backyard inspirations from here in Houston. Check out the gallery above. For tips from a designer on how to get your outdoor space to work for you, see HoustonChronicle.com.
