These Eight Outdoor Items Will Update Your Patio Just in Time For Spring

Written by Meg Parisi  |  25. March 2019

1. Planters 

One of the quickest and most dramatic ways to refresh your patio for spring is with the addition of new plants and planters. These resin planters from West Elm have a modern, minimalist look and can also serve as space dividers. (Sold in three color choices). Cityscape resin planters, $299, West Elm


2. Charcoal Grill 

We agree that barbecue season is pretty much fair game any time it's not raining. Upgrade your burger and steak game with this classic Weber charcoal grill in cherry red. Weber Original Kettle Premium Limited Edition charcoal grill, $188, Hayneedle


3. Chiminea 

If you're looking for an alternative to the classic outdoor fire pit, try a sleek and space-saving chiminea. We love this one from Terrain, which would look perfectly at home surrounded by your favorite patio furniture. Weathering steel obelisk chiminea, $448, Terrain


4. Outdoor Lights 

Everyone knows that no outdoor space is complete these days without some strings of twinkle lights. These orb string lights from Target make a great alternative to the popular Edison bulb trend. Opalhouse Outdoor Orb String Lights Black Rope, $14, Target


5. Bird Feeder 

Invite some of your friendly neighbors to visit your patio with this sweet hummingbird feeder. Having these birds around encourages flowers and plants to bloom and grow as too! Perky Pet mason jar hummingbird feeder, $18, Home Depot


6. Teardrop Chair 

For a bohemian touch, try one or two of these unique teardrop rattan chairs, which remind us of something you'd see in a Slim Aarons photo from the 1960s. Langley Street Teardrop Patio Chair $323, Wayfair


7. Patio Umbrella

No patio is complete without an umbrella, and we especially love a classic canvas version that has the added bonus of solar-powered lighting on the spines. Tropishade round Lighted Patio Umbrella, $87, Target


8. Outdoor Bar Cart 

For any serious entertainer, an outdoor bar cart that can actually be mobilized for serving is a must. We love the price point and functional guard bars on this one from Wayfair. 

Ebern Designs Marra outdoor bar serving cart, $118, Wayfair
