A little time creating a special area in your backyard not only makes your yard more enjoyable for you but, stepping out a back door can increase interest in your home from potential buyers when it comes time to sell.
A backyard makeover doesn't necessarily have to cost an arm and a leg. There are some simple and inexpensive touches that can take the backyard from just a yard to a place of pleasure.
Here are a few ideas that I came across that shows how a little creativity without a huge budget can add a nice touch to a backyard.
Rope lighting is more than for the Christmas season. Strategically placed around your deck or yard, rope lighting adds an incredible mood to your outdoors.
Create A Focal Point
Let your imagination go wild. Even an old watering can and a string of lights can give a boring backyard a creative focal point.
A Corner Paradise
Take a corner of your yard and create a little paradise. Even a small yard with a corner patio area can really make a boring yard come alive. Who wouldn't enjoy an area like this to entertain family and friends or just a place like this to enjoy a quiet morning coffee all to yourself?
Glow In The Dark Paint
With a brush and a little Glow-In-the-Dark paint, your walkway can take on an entirely different look when darkness arrives.
If regulations allow for a wood fire pit, this can be one of the most enjoyable parts of the great outdoors in the summer.
If a wood burning fire pit is not allowed in your area check into gas/propane units. A large selection is available and one is available to fit almost any budget.
