Your favourite comfy seating is key, armchair, small sofa, reclining chair, hammock? Once you’re covered, add options for guests like foldable chairs, stackable stools and pouffes. With a modular one-seat section and stool, you get a chaise longue that doubles as separate seats.
Start with a two-seat outdoor dining set. If you don’t have room for a set, buy individually. A stool side table or even a storage bench works if you just want a spot for a snack or drink.
Plant stands and hangable pots are gardening heroes. For yoga, exercise or must-dos (like laundry), free up room with pieces you can move or take indoors. A foldable drying rack is easy to put away, so you can be outdoors when it’s not chore time.
If you can fit a storage bench, you’ll get seating (and a side table), too. Boxes, hooks, shelving units and cabinets are also good helpers to keep things outdoors.
