Spring is finally here and now’s a great time to start preparing your outdoor living spaces. With the arrival of warmer weather, folks are looking forward to spending time out on their patios, in their gardens, and enjoying their yards!
Whether you’re a homeowner looking to bump up your home’s curb appeal in preparation for a sale, or you’re looking to get the most out of your yard for your own relaxation and entertaining, here are 5 budget friendly projects to bring your yard up to a “10″ – and better yet, each can be done over a weekend!
1.Light It Up
Adding exterior lighting to your outdoor spaces not only adds a security and safety feature, but they are also a perfect way to create mood and ambiance so you can enjoy more time outside. Consider going green with solar lights, they are affordable, require no wiring, and are eco-friendly.
2. Add Some Green
Take some time to improve the condition of your existing lawn. When you fertilize and seed your lawn you create lush, durable greenery. Eco-grass seed requires less watering and is over all lower maintenance, apply the seed to the areas needing grass then use a spreader to fertilize the whole yard.
3. Create a Patio
Find an area in the yard to create a small area specifically designed for entertaining and relaxing. Brick or flagstone can help define the space and give you an area suitable for a table, chairs, and grill – what a great spot to spend some relaxing time!
4. Bring in Some Color
Potted flowers will add a pop of color to your outdoor space throughout the season. To ensure you spend most of your time outside relaxing, choose low-maintenance, drought-tolerant plants to accessorize your yard. Consider using such colorful plants as lavender, Russian Sage, Yarrow, Sedum and Salvia, all of which thrive in dry conditions.
5. Add Fire or Water
The addition of a simple fountain or small pond to your yard provides an attractive focal point as well as a pleasurable background sound element to your outdoor space. Fire pits are also a nice addition to any outdoor space and are an affordable way to add heat and light to the back yard.
