1. String lights that reviewers loveAdd some sparkle to your porch. (Photo: Home Depot)One of the simplest ways to add some sparkle to your patio, deck, or backyard is to hang up some string lights. This set features 12 large bulbs and is available for just under $15 at Home Depot. With over 100 reviews and a 4.1-star rating, reviewers like the large size of these orbs and say they’re a great way to add some pizzazz.

(Photo: Wayfair)With a 4.8-star rating from nearly 800 reviewers, this might be one of the most popularandaffordable rugs on Wayfair. This nautical-inspired rug is stain-resistant, which is ideal if you’re worried about trekking dirt or enjoying a glass of red wine on your patio. Although only the 1'10" by 2'10" size is available for under $30, it’ll make a great doormat or runner while adding a pop of color to the outdoors.
3. A hammock that doubles as a swingThis intensive hanging chair is sturdy and strong. (Photo: Overstock)In need of some extra seating? Have some fun in your outdoor space with a swinging hammock chair. Although it’s priced under $30, it claims to support up to 330 pounds and reviewers agree that it holds up, though they do warn it's on the smaller side. Aside from the great outdoors, this chair would look great hanging in a child’s bedroom.
4. Colorful throw pillows for outdoor seatingThese will pop against neutral furniture. (Photo: Wayfair)These geometric throw pillows are just the pop of color that your patio needs. Available in aqua or black, these waterproof throw pillows would look great on a white bench or neutral patio set. Plus, the covers are removable, which makes washing them easy.
5. A popular ceramic planterThese gorgeous planters are inexpensive and durable. (Photo: Walmart)Although we’ve all been invested in our houseplants while in quarantine, some new outdoor plants could be the (literal) spruce you need. This gorgeous ceramic planter is available in three different sizes—and each is under $30. Reviewers love the minimalist color of these pots, the water drainage holes, and the fact they’re all-weather fade and stain-resistant, so the color will stay true for years to come.
6. Wind chimes for some calming soundsSweet twinkling sounds right in your backyard. (Photo: Wayfair)Is there anything more calming than the soothing melodies that come from a wind chime? It’s honestly one of the more relaxing items you can hang on your patio or deck. Reviewers are fans of this simple one from Wayfair and claim that the sound is a perfectly light twinkling and not overbearing.
7. Tiki torches that are weather-resistantThese torches can survive the rain. (Photo: Home Depot)While classic wooden tiki torches provide a nice glow and ambiance to any backyard gathering, the bamboo can rot or get moldy from rain over time. These metal tiki torches from Home Depot solve that issue as they’re weather-resistant, and offer up to five hours of illumination with their refillable canisters. Reviewers love how easy they are to fill and were pleasantly surprised by how well they held up to the elements.
8. An outdoor canopy for extra shadeBring a little more shade to your space. (Photo: Ozark Trail)Now that most graduation and birthday celebrations have been limited to small crowds in backyards, we could use some extra coverage with an outdoor canopy. This one from Ozark Trail, Walmart’s outdoors brand, is highly recommended and should do the trick. At 4' by 6', it’s the perfect size for covering a buffet table or grill, and reviewers say it’s incredibly easy to assemble.
9. A feeder that attracts the birdsBecause wildlife will make your space alive. (Photo: Wayfair)An outdoor space should also attract a little wildlife, right? That’s where a bird feeder comes in, and this one is quite popular on Home Depot because it has a clean look to it and a secured cap that ensures pesky squirrels won’t make their way into the seed. Kids and adults alike will be fascinated by the critters who come to visit.
