With the last of winter’s snow melting into spring, everyone’s just itching to get out some sunshine and fresh air. Spring is the perfect time to upgrade your home décor to the next level – both indoors and outdoors. While an apartments interior can be easily spruced up with a few furniture and décor refreshments, we usually think of backyard makeovers as involving expensive landscaping. Here are some ways a savvy homeowner can beautify their outdoor landscape, without breaking the bank.
1. A fresh coat of paint
Whether your porch/deck/patio features unfinished wood or has already been painted, it can always use a painting job after the winter. Painting a deck is an easy DIY that can be done in as little as a few hours, depending on its size. Make sure to clean the patio and powerwash the wood beforehand, to remove all mold and debris.
2. Smell the flowers
Exercise your green thumb by planting some perennials next to your home, or keep the flowers growing all summer long by planting annuals. Flowers that are planted in soil will look best if you cover up the soil with fresh mulch, which you can get at a local garden or landscaping center. For gardening in flowerpots, decorative planters will do so much more than boring terracotta! Display some coordinating planters for a lovely DIY flower garden at a fraction of the designer cost.
