Budget-Friendly Backyard Makeovers

Summer months bring longer days, warmer weather, and more time outdoors with friends and family. Looking to update your backyard without breaking the bank? Try some of these great tips to increase the appeal of your yard:

A small DIY deck or patio  - Patios can be built with many different materials, including pavers,  concrete , and  wood. Adding a deck or patio will make your yard more attractive, provide a space for furniture, and increase the resale value of your home. To learn how to build a floating wooden deck, watch the video below.

Create a path  - Whether you have a garden, play area, pool, or fire pit in your backyard, creating a path using bricks, stones, or pavers will give it a more polished look. Additionally, you can add  outdoor landscape lights  to illuminate the walkway.

Install a pergola  - Looking for something to provide shade over your patio? Try  building  or  purchasing  a pergola. You can even grow climbing plants across the top or string lights for extra appeal!

Add a fire pit  - You can  build  a simple fire pit or  purchase  one from your local home improvement store. Add chairs around it and enjoy s'mores or drinks with friends.

String lights around the living space  - Stringing lights over your outdoor seating space can instantly make it feel cozier and more inviting. You can attach lights to trees or to an outdoor structure, or if you don't have anything to attach them to, try this  DIY planter post.
