Whether a person is a first-time homeowner or wants to spice up their outdoor living space, there are many durable, affordable, and aesthetically pleasing options. COVID-19 has made DIY projects rise in popularity as many are spending the majority of their time at home. If the front or backyard needs a little pick-me-up, here are some options that will help make the space inviting and beautiful.
Grow a Garden
The addition of plants to the front or backyard will not only add appeal, but it will also help the environment! From herb gardens for cooking purposes or rain gardens that help absorb and divert extra water, these require little to moderate maintenance that will not interrupt work or family matters. Children can also help plant and tend to the garden. Everyone in the house will enjoy the benefits of delicious fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
Incorporate Outdoor Furniture
As with gardening, consider making the outdoor living space a calming environment. Hammocks, rocking chairs, and porch swings are all good options to enjoy the outdoors. While these furniture pieces can sometimes be a little pricey, buying second hand or DIY can be an affordable option. Adding a fire pit to the backyard can also create a cozy aesthetic, but local fire codes should be reviewed before installation.
Create Adult- and Kid-Friendly Spaces
Whether the kids want a backyard play set or the adults are craving an outdoor bar or kitchen, these can offer fun, entertaining ways to liven up the space. All of these options can be DIY or done by an installation company for a reasonable price. If there is little time or energy, adding a fresh coat of paint to the front or back of the house areas can give it the sprucing up it needs, even for new-build homes.
