An herb garden is easy to care for and makes an ideal additional to a patio or deck. We want to call out basil in particular, however, since it’s one of the most aesthetically pleasing herbs with its bright, leafy green nature. Basil is also easy to grow and comes in a number of different varieties, if you want to experiment a little.

If strawberries have a problem (besides hungry pests), it’s that they tend to lie flat on the ground and the fruit can easily be ruined unless it is picked at just the right time. Keeping strawberries near your patio or in a pot can help alleviate this issue, making strawberries another great choice. As soon as they’re ripe, pick ’em and eat ’em!
