Summer is the season for doing everything outdoors from backyard parties to family picnics. Long summer days are meant for spending time outdoors but if your backyard is lacking in the department of fun you may be missing out! The good news is there are plenty of projects that you can start and finish in a weekend, some less than a day! Now is a great time to enhance your yard and beautify your landscape while giving everyone in the family something to enjoy. Are you feeling especially productive this weekend? Check out our fun list of weekend projects to make your home the most attractive house on the block this summer.
Build a Tree Bench
Picture a warm summer day with the sunlight shining through the trees as you read your favorite book. A tree bench is a comfy and cool spot the entire family can enjoy and it can practically look like its part of the tree. Once you put your bench together you can enjoy lounging around and enjoying the nice weather. There are many benefits to adding a tree bench to your backyard but one of the main ones is when you host outdoor parts, it will provide additional seating for your guests.
Add a Deck to your Backyard
If one of your goals for this summer is to spend more time with your friends and family, one of the best ways to do that is by creating a great outdoor space. And when it comes to the different options you have for an outdoor space, it’s hard to beat everything that a deck has to offer. Once a deck is added to your home, it will provide a space where you can hang out with your friends and family whenever you want. Another nice thing about adding a deck to your house is it gives you the opportunity to create just about any type of outdoor space that you want. While it’s nice to have a lot of different options, it can also be a little overwhelming. If you’re ready to move forward with this project but aren’t totally sure about all the options you want, House Doctors can help.
Build a Fire Pit
A fire pit is a perfect spot to cozy up to on a cool summer night and a great addition to your home! There is something to be said about the flames crackling from a fire pit and the smell of roasting marshmallows. The nice thing about building a fire pit in your backyard is that the expense of adding one is relatively low. You can also re-purpose materials you currently have to make your fire pits such as metal planters, flower pots, and even glass.
Make a Vegetable Table
If you already have a vegetable garden then you know that one of the best parts about summer is the being able to walk outside and gather some fresh produce for your meals. Lettuce and other greens grow in a pretty shallow environment, so re-purposing an old piece of furniture can be an easy way to grow your greens. This would work pretty well on your back porch or deck, really anywhere that is sunny. Not only is the height of the table convenient, but you can also move it if needed.
