As much as you might love your home and yard, there is always room for improvement. After this past wet winter and spring, if your home is anything like mine, your yard could probably use some TLC. To help you out along the way, here are 5 easy DIY summer landscaping projects. Check out the whole list as well.
1. Fruits or Vegetables Anywhere
Find some unused, or under-utilized space in your yard. Plant a fruit tree, some corn, cabbage, carrots, berry bushes, or anything you want! Your yard can become a verdant source of delicious produce for you and your family with little preparation besides planting and watering.
2. Simple Landscape Lighting
Small lights along your front path, around your garden bed, or on the corners of your deck or porch can create a sense of beauty and completion, not to mention additional light.
3. Exterior Shutters
If your front or back of your home is looking a little stale, consider adding some colorful, decorative exterior shutters. Install is simple, and the effect is refreshing and lively.
4. Begin Composting
If you have some unused space in your yard, consider buying, or building your own box for creating your own compost. You can create rich compost to use, sell, or share. It’s good for the environment, and for your garden.
5. Hang Up a Tree Swing
Take an old tire, or plank, some strong rope, and some hose (to put between the rope and the tree to protect the tree, and the rope), and you’re on your way. It’ll be fun for the whole family, and creates that classic American look of wholesome family fun.
There are a lot of things you can do to improve your current home, but sometimes its best to look for someplace new.
