It’s the time of year where we’re not only Spring cleaning indoors, but many of us have moved on to cleaning outdoors as well. I love this time of year, because I get to be creative with the space we have. We love to garden and plant and with 3 kids and 5 dogs, it makes it quite difficult. We also like to fix it up as a living space, since we entertain all Summer long. I’ve put together some ideas to help spruce up your backyard for the Summer.
Build a Deck
Our backyard can get so muddy and I know many have the same problem. A wonderful way to solve the muddy issue is with a DIY deck. You can have it attached to your home, raised, detached or low to the ground. The possibilities are endless and the results amazing!
Build a Box Garden
I mentioned earlier that we love to garden and plant. We love being able to harvest our own vegetables and cook fresh with them. Here’s one of my favorite ideas that is actually going to get built this year
Evergreen Plants and Geometric Furniture
Add an Outdoor Fireplace and Kitchen
If you’re anything like me, then you love your outdoor space. We’re constantly entertaining or cooking outside during the Summer. My dream is to someday add an outdoor kitchen and/or brick oven (Hello Italy!)
Organize Your tools and Planting Supplies
Implementing some of these simple ideas will definitely help spruce up your backyard for this Summer, and for a few years more too!
