As the seasons change, flowers begin to bloom, trees get back their leaves, and the grass starts to green making your backyard patio an ideal place to kick your feet up, relax, and smell the fresh spring air. To enjoy your home this spring, make sure your patio is in tip-top shape for any occasion by following these DIY tasks.
Start With A Spring Clean
It’s time to dust off any furniture and wipe down any wood or glass with your choice of household cleaning products. For an even deeper clean, try power washing your floors for a new start, and if you have any rugs, cushions, or pillows, throw them in the laundry for that freshly washed scent.
- Have a full-size backyard? Let’s get down and dirty!
- Mow your lawn
- Replant and resoil
- Tend to your garden
- Painting any fences you may have
- Consider adding rocks or mulch to texturize
Working on these projects can be a fun way to unwind and spend some time alone or with your family on a beautiful Saturday or Sunday.
Add Some Color
Bright colors make everything look happier. There’s nothing quite like the look of new, spring colors and patterns to change the mood of a patio and give it an inviting feel. This includes pillows, rugs, pictures, flags, new cushions, and more.
Purchase Some New Decor
You don’t have to spend much! From candles to flowers, outdoor figurines to lamp fixtures, and TVs to fire pits, you can find outdoor decor at any home goods store, flea market, grocery store, or even neighborhood garage sales. Don’t be afraid to mix and match the old and the new. Modern design includes eclectic items, patterns, and more.
If you are planning on having backyard get-togethers this spring and summer, plan accordingly with chairs, tables, and maybe even a smaller fridge for easy access to food and drinks. If you are more of an introvert, make the space clean and inviting for a getaway to de-stress from work or a long day on your feet.
In the evening, you might need some additional lighting, bug and mosquito repellent, or some blankets if it gets chilly.
