13. Consider a tent to transform your space. A tent will add an additional structure that can pair next to your house. It will change the layout of your yard – how you have seen it and used it in the past. Look into a clear top tent or a sailcloth tent to add to the beauty that surrounds it.


Backyard Wedding Advice
