Hectic schedules leave little time for outdoor decorating, which is why some California natives leave their backyards bare. The problem with that, of course, is that the backyard is often the gathering place for big parties and small get-togethers. Not only do you need to have adequate seating for guests, but you also don’t want to leave your space completely unfurnished as it doesn’t present a very positive image to those visiting your Kentfield, Larkspur, or Tiburon home for the first time. The easiest solution is to shop for weather-resistant chairs, sofas, and tables at a place that can offer decorating tips as well. Fortunately, the patio displays at Terra Patio & Garden in Mill Valley can provide you with the inspiration you need. And since this local retailer will be running their floor sample sale during the month of October, you can even obtain discounted furniture for as much as 50% off the regular price!
