With spring on the horizon, it’s time to start paying more attention to your yard, as you’ll probably be spending a significant amount of time outdoors as it warms up. Are you happy with your landscape the way it is now? Or would you like to spice it up a bit? We’ve created a list of a few ideas you can implement into your yard this spring to make it brighter, more colorful, and a place you enjoy spending your free time.
Lights are the perfect addition to any yard if you’re looking to add some warmth! Whether you choose string lights to hang above, lights to line a pathway or enhance your garden, or a heater lamp, the options are endless. There’s something for everyone’s budget to suit every style of backyard.
Everyone loves colorful spring flowers! Invest in a few pots you can add to your back porch and plant your favorite flowers of the season. Depending on the season, you can change out flowers or plants and select any size or number of pots that you desire. Potted plants typically require minimal upkeep and are relatively inexpensive to purchase.
Plant a Tree:
Are you looking for a fun weekend project? Do a bit of research to learn what kinds of trees grow best in your area, and purchase a small one to plant in your yard. Not only does this make a fun activity, but you’ll be able to watch it grow throughout the season and beyond!
Stepping stones are an affordable way to bring accessibility, comfort, and design to your yard. Do you have a rocky area that’s uncomfortable to walk? Maybe you like how stepping stones look. Either way, stepping stones can be easily installed in a few hours, and depending on the style and number of stones you select, they can easily cost less than $100.
Who doesn’t like a bonfire? If you’re one to host social gatherings and parties, a fire pit is just the right addition to your yard for you. Buy an easy-to-put-together fire pit from the store, or DIY your own. You’re sure to enjoy the warmth and comfort a fire brings year-round. However, a fire pit makes a great space to socialize during spring and summer barbecues, family gatherings, or to spend some time relaxing on your own.
