5 Budget Friendly Ways To Spruce Up Your Backyard
A backyard makeover doesn’t have to be costly to be spectacular. All you need is a little DIY magic to create your dream backyard. Check out these great design ideas to help transform your green space into a beautiful oasis on a budget!
1) Create a Stone Path
Create a clear path from your house to your backyard garden, water feature, pool, or playhouse. You can use a variety of materials like mulch, bricks, or stones to create a beautiful pathway. You can also add a little flair to your walkway by adding yard decorations like glow-in-the-dark rocks or garden stakes.
2) String Up Some Mood Lighting
A sure way to make your backyard beautiful is to invest in outdoor lighting. Drape string lights down from a pergola or across your outdoor living space to give it a starry-night feel. Another great way to add some lighting is to line your patio or garden path with torches or lanterns for soft lighting.
3) Have Some Fun With Your Fence
Cool backyard ideas don’t have to be expensive to have that “wow” factor. All you need is a drill, several different sizes of multi-colored marbles, and a rubber mallet for this unique and fun DIY project. Your backyard will be a kaleidoscope of color when the sun hits just right!
Another fun way to spruce up your fence is by adding a mural. This is a great way to add some color on a budget. Just be sure to determine what paints you’ll use and the scale of the mural first in order to create your masterpiece.
4) Set Up a Backyard Theater
Set up a projector and screen right in your own backyard to watch all of your favorite movies. Just add a few blankets, large pillows, a string of lights for ambiance, and of course don't forget the popcorn to enjoy watching movies under the stars. This is a cheap and easy way to create the ultimate backyard viewing experience.
5) Create Shade with a Pergola
A pergola is a fantastic idea for your dream backyard. Clear out an area on a deck or in your yard and build your own pergola. Add curtains for extra shade to create the ultimate outdoor living room!
