Give Your Backyard a Makeover

Although some days it may seem like winter will never end, summer is approaching and it will be here before you know it. That means barbecues, naps in hammocks, and drinks on the back deck are on the horizon. If you’re looking at freshening up your outdoor space here are some things that might help.

Furniture

A good outdoor furniture set can create a perfect spot for backyard gatherings. Gone are the days of white plastic chairs. Nowadays patio furniture can be just as nice as your living room set. Some people even use their patios as a second living room. So take your time and pick something out that you know you’ll enjoy.

Lighting

The right kind of lighting can completely transform an outdoor space. From string lights to solar-powered stakes, there are so many options to make your yard brighter and create ambiance. Custom exterior lighting is a great option because you can create exactly what you want in your own unique space.

Landscaping

Hopefully, it goes without saying, but a backyard makeover isn’t possible unless you spend some time on the landscaping. This doesn’t mean you need to clear everything out and hire a professional to start from scratch. You can work with what you have, but you definitely need to spend some time thinking about how to improve your yard’s landscaping. You can plant some colorful perennials, put new bark mulch around your trees, install a squirrel feeder, or create a succulent garden….the possibilities are practically endless.

There are so many things you can do to freshen up your yard, and sometimes it’s the smallest things that can make the biggest difference. Pick up a couple of colorful all-weather throw pillows for your new outdoor furniture or pick up a couple of bright planters to scatter around and wait for the compliments to start rolling in.
