Spruce up your Patio with these easy tricks!

Whether you love to entertain friends or sip your morning coffee on the patio, here are five easy ways to inject new life into your little corner of nature. House Logic gives us the scoop on how to rejuvenate a run-down patio with a budget in mind!

1. Stop the pests that make your patio look untidy

We know that it is hard to enjoy your patio if it's covered in debris by critters digging and trampling, there's a way to stop them in their tracks. Rather than using regular mulch, give the pine cone method a chance. Those spiny cones will deter pests and mischievous pets from digging and tearing up your space. 

2. Add some color

Rejuvenate your patio with a pop of color. Try painting it a bold, bright color or fun and vibrant pattern. Let your creative juices flow and give it your best shot, this is your space to make one-of-a-kind! At the very least, a new coat of concrete stain will give that tired concrete a fresh look.

3. Remove rust from the furniture

If the damage isn’t too extensive, the job can be as simple as scraping it off. Use a wire brush, sandpaper, or steel wool — and a bit of elbow grease — to scour it away. For less effort, use a drill with a wire brush attachment. For more extensive rust issues, you can use an acidic agent like vinegar to help with the removal. After the successful removal of your pesky rust, simply give the outdoor furniture a nice new coat of paint to finish it off!
