Everyone wants a beautiful backyard, but hiring a landscape designer can get pretty expensive. Fortunately, there are a lot of ways to make your backyard look awesome without spending a lot of money.
DIY projects are not only fun but the results of your handwork and perseverance can be very satisfying. Here are ten easy ideas to do to finally create the backyard of your dreams.
1. An outdoor bench made from wooden bars
This idea is quite simple but makes a lot of sense. This project only needs a couple of wooden bars, hollow blocks, and pillows to create a unique and cozy outdoor bench.
2. A path with glowing pebbles
Make your backyard pathway more interesting by adding glowing pebbles on the side. This addition may not be obvious during the daytime, but they will release their glow when the sun goes down and will make your pathway look like a starry night.
3. A handmade picnic mattress
Sewing pillows together will serve as a comfy mattress for picnics and other backyard activities. You can use the same pillowcase color, or you can do assorted as well.
4. A shadow curtain
It’s quite relaxing to stay in the backyard but the scorching heat of the sun can sometimes be unbearable. Fortunately, there is a solution to this. Just add some strings and water resistant fabric above you and it can instantly serve as a shade.
5. Colorful tiles
Gray tiles are the most common. Although they look nice and classic, popping a couple of colorful tiles would give a more fun vibe.
6. Bottle fence
Wine bottles will decorate your backyard and protect the flowers. You can paint them and line them all together to create any shape that you want.
7. Leaf stepping stones
Personalize your stepping stone by shaping it into something else than the usual square or circle. A huge leaf can be a great pattern, and it will turn your backyard into a fairy tale spot in no time.
8. Hula hoop tent
Kids don’t stay outdoors as much anymore these days so if you want to make them feel what childhood was like decades ago, create a tent in your backyard using a hula hoop and some blankets. Your kids will surely enjoy it!
9. Brick edging
Brick edging doesn’t only protect your flower beds, but it also adds beauty and finesse.
10. Swings from an old skateboard
Don’t throw those broken skateboards away! You can turn them into swings by hanging them up on a tree with a durable cord.
