The Prettiest Porch and Patio Essentials To Shop From Walmart’s Home Collections—All Under $105

Whether they’re big or small, screened-in or decked out with a comfy swing, there’s no debating that porches and patios make some of the best outdoor hangout spots for summer. And when those backyard (or front yard!) hangs are decorated with the right patio furniture and accessories, it makes the space that much more inviting and homey. Soon, your house will become the new go-to place for neighbors to gather for al fresco dinners!

Even if you haven’t gotten your porch or patio in tiptop shape for summer yet, there’s no need to worry—because you still have time to shop for some of our favorite planters, garden stools, patio furniture, and more from Walmart. It’s one of the most affordable places to find everything you’ve ever wanted to create your dreamy outdoor oasis, just in time to start hosting those warm-weather get-togethers. And if all the options on Walmart overwhelm you, you can start by shopping the retailer’s more specific outdoor shops that are divided by style, including some of our personal favorites: Summer at the LakeFarmhouse, and Coastal.

To help you make your selection, we browsed Walmart’s gorgeous home collections and selected 12 of our favorite standout items.
