A clean and clutter-free patio is more inviting, comfortable, and relaxing than a cluttered one. Like indoor living spaces, it’s easy for your patio to become cluttered with furniture and other various items. Decluttering it will allow you to better enjoy your outdoor living space. Check out these five ways you can organize and declutter your new patio.

1. Buy a Deck Box

Deck boxes are an affordable way to keep your patio organized. Use a deck box to store your patio necessities and keep them out of sight until you need to use them. Store things such as cushions, blankets, and other necessities so you can easily access them when you need them. These boxes will also extend the life of whatever accessories you store in them since they will be protected from the elements. 


2. Create a Gardening Station

Avid gardeners are always well-stocked on things like potting soil, plant fertilizer, and gardening tools. People tend to stack these supplies close to their patio, and as a result, their patio feels cluttered and small. Instead of stacking gardening supplies close to your patio, create a gardening station where you keep everything you need organized and ready to use. 


3. Hide Your Garbage and Recycling Cans

Every week, we haul our garbage cans, recycling cans, and for some people, yard waste cans from the backyard to the curb and back. However, your garbage cans are the last thing you want to see while enjoying your new patio. Consider designating a space on the front or side of your yard to store your cans. That way, they cannot be seen by you and your family while on the patio. 


4. Build Storage Benches

A functional and aesthetically pleasing way to organize your patio is to build storage benches. These benches will serve as a place for you and your guest to sit down while enjoying the patio, and at the same time serve as a place to store important patio items. Talk to a patio builder in Maryland about your options for storage benches on your patio. 


5. Build a Privacy Screen

Privacy screens are a great way to designate parts of your patio or yard for storing unsightly items. Items placed behind your privacy screen will be out of sight and out of mind, therefore allowing you to fully enjoy your patio. It’s a great, cost-effective way to declutter and organize your new patio.
