Here are 10 easy and low cost ways to revitalize your backyard!
1. Clean Up
You’d be surprised what’s leftover from the winter season! Take some time to rake leaves, pull weeds, pick up branches and remove fallen debris. A good cleaning can add the sparkle back into your yard!
2. Fresh Mulch
Fresh mulch does wonders for the eye and prevents weeds! Check your local lumber mill for deals on mulch. You may have to load it yourself but it can be a tenth of the cost of big box stores.
3. Build a Path
Use the same route to get to the fire pit? Add a path using stepping stones or interlock. Check online yard sale sites as people always have leftover stone from bigger projects.
4. Plant Some Colour
Go to your local nursery and get low cost colourful flowers. Pick colours that you like and enjoy! Colour can make all the difference!
Create a border between your lawn and gardens. This simple trick will make your yard look like a million bucks!
6. Build a Raised Garden Bed
Want a garden but don’t have the space? Build a raised garden bed and plant your veggies. Not only does it look cool but you’ll be rewarded all summer with fresh treats!
7. Add Some Furniture
Make your backyard comfortable by adding furniture. Not only will you be able to enjoy the outdoors, you’ll also create function for your space.
8. Hang Some Plants
Hanging plants catch the eye and can be hung anywhere and they don’t require a lot of maintenance! Decorate an old fence or pergola to add that creative twist.
9. Let There Be Light
Add some outdoor lighting to make your backyard shine! Rope lighting is inexpensive, easy to install and you can put it just about anywhere.
10. Throw A Party
After all your hard work sprucing up your back yard the most important thing is to enjoy it! Throw a party or have a bbq, invite friends and family over; after all what is summer for?
