Colorful plastic rugs are very easy maintenance but in full sun they often become very hot. For a more comfortable experience, consider butting up several smaller outdoor rugs together.

I plan to use baby bed mattresses for inexpensive furniture cushions. Cushions with any comfort at all are expensive. Baby bed mattresses are readily available, cheap and waterproof. Perfect size for banquettes, day beds, custom swings etc. A big plus that you could just buy sheets to fit.. ( huge selection) Perhaps when my trim carpenter husband retires, we can build these things. For now, "the cobblers children have no shoes".

while ive got a lot more to do before the backyard sanctuary is finished...need landscaping ideas...i saved money and felt like a good diyer by redoing the pool myself. instead of paying for a company to redo the pool with plaster, i ground the surface with a 4 inch hand grinder and redid my pool with 2 part epoxy paint for under 1000 instead of spending thousands for a new plaster job. the epoxy makes it much easier to maintain also resisting algae. Also, i got my cafe style string lights at end of the season and preseason sales and thrift stores and found a hot tub on craigslist in great shape for 200. it cost more to get a certified electrician to run a 220 line to the hot tub then it did to buy and have the hottub transported. and doing rhe chemicals and pool maintence oneself saves hundreds to thousands in a year.
