Budget Friendly

Even on a budget you can create a great outdoor space. Try to recycle materials, for example pallets make great benches & coffee tables. Gather up baskets and candles to create a cosy vibe. Try places like Freecycle to find pre-loved items. Choose a large, thick blanket like our Chevrons to stay warm naturally so you don't have to invest in heaters or firepits.
