Patio covers are often used to protect outdoor furniture from the elements, ensuring fabric doesn’t fade in color or get destroyed due to rain. But that’s not all they’re good for — read on to discover unique ways to use a patio cover to enhance your backyard activities:
- Growing veggies — One of the highlights of summer is being able to enjoy fresh vegetables straight from the garden. If you’re short on backyard space, don’t worry — you can still grow seasonal produce using your patio by simply adding pots, shelves, and hanging containers. TEMO’s patio covers can provide plenty of sun protection for your patio plants, which creates the perfect environment for veggies that prefer shade.
- Dining al fresco — Instead of taking your date to a crowded restaurant where you risk long wait times and poor service, offer to host dinner on your patio. TEMO’s patio covers feature Mediterranean-inspired columns in three different styles — Florentine, Roma, and Venetian — which will be sure to create a romantic ambience, especially if you’ve chosen Italian cuisine. And when you’re done eating, you can simply step out from under the patio cover to enjoy the starry sky.
- Hosting a party — When you’re planning an outdoor event, one of your biggest concerns will no doubt be the risk of bad weather. Ease your worries by setting up the refreshments on your patio, where guests will be able to indulge in snacks and drinks, rain or shine. And, because TEMO’s patio covers feature a TEMKOR polymer coating that requires almost no annual maintenance, you won’t have to add patio cover clean-up to your list of pre-party tasks.
