While road trips may be the trend in summer vacations, backyard barbeques and garden parties are the way to enjoy time at home, especially if you're taking a staycation this year.

It's simple to make your backyard or patio mimic the luxury of a resort with a few additions. We recommend adding plants and flowers from Gainan's. Their Flower & Gardens Center in the Heights has many Montana favorites: geraniums, herbs and vegetables, perennials, and even bark for flower beds. If horticulture isn't your hobby their Grow Pros can help you find a selection of plants to fit your space with options for sun or shade blossoms, and even mood-elevating plants.

Once you've created the ambiance you want using plants, take a look at your backyard furniture. Quality furniture will make you, and any guests, want to linger even longer in the beautiful outdoor space you've already created with gorgeous and fragrant flower arrangements. Gainan's has a wide variety of chairs, tables, and firepits to add that final layer of comfort to your garden or patio.

Gainan's Heights Flowers and Garden – on Bench & Hilltop and Gainan’s Midtown Flowers 17th & Grand are both open and filled with options for creating a luxurious back yard. Call them at (406) 245-6436 or (866) 445-7390 and anytime online at gainans.com.
