5 Easy Ways to Spruce Up Your Outdoor Spaces

Straighten up the outdoor places where you love spending time — your porch, the patio, the garden. A few simple ideas can make your yard look uncluttered and well-kept without using tools and without using up precious hours of your day.

  • Attach Cushions to Patio Furniture

    Keep patio furniture cushions in place and prevent them from blowing away in stormy weather. Simply attach them to your furniture with Scotch™ Outdoor Fasteners. The fasteners are easy to apply and virtually undetectable. For furniture indoors, use Scotch™ Indoor Fasteners so chair cushions won’t slip when friends, family or little tykes sit down.

  • Mounted LED or Solar Lights

    Make your yard safer in minutes with this easy way to install wireless LED or solar lights outside. Use Scotch® Extreme Mounting Tape to provide a permanent, weather-resistant hold. Attach LED or solar lights to stairs, decks, patio furniture or boating docks to brighten up your yard.

  • Keep Plants Upright

    Looking for simple ways to keep plants in your yard or garden upright? Drive a metal or wooden stake into the ground next to the plant that is drooping or bending. Straighten the plant and wrap a Scotch™ Bundling Strap around the stake and stem.

  • Attach Your Rain Gauge

    Weather watchers, mount your rain gauge quickly and easily so you can spend more time analyzing your data. Apply one side of Scotch™ Outdoor Fasteners to the rain gauge and the other side to a post, fence or side of your house. Remove the rain gauge to empty it and reattach it again and again.

  • Hang a Welcome Sign

    Personalize your outdoor space in mere moments. You can hang a welcome sign or other decorative outdoor sign with Scotch® Outdoor Mounting Tape. It’s strong, permanent and works with a variety of different surfaces, so you can express your hospitality in many different places — on a garden fence, by the patio or at the front door.
