Has your lawn been looking a bit sad lately? The flowers wilting, the wall cracking…
Now that you’ve been spending more time at home, you’re noticing that your lawn needs a revamp, especially since you step outside to catch a breath and find a depressing view.
But you don’t want to spend extra cash. So how can you do decorate your lawn without costing you an arm and a leg?
Here are four ways to get you started!
Paint Your Wall a Vibrant Color
A splash of paint can do wonders in brightening a dull backyard wall.
You only need to buy the paint and a few brushes, so it’s quite an affordable update to make.
The trend nowadays is minimalism. Mainly due to people not having enough cash to spend on leisure and traveling. So they’re mostly looking into how they can update their interior to make it livelier.
When choosing a color, go for a vibrant blue or green, depending on your furniture color. If your chairs are white, then either color can work, but yellow would be a better choice if your chairs are wooden brown.
Build a Fire Pit
Spending your weekends stuck at home and not having friends over like you used to can bore you to death. That is if you don’t have anything important to do at home, like building your fire pit!
Not only will you be active during the weekend, but you will also enjoy being Bob the builder for once. Seeing the outcome of your effort will bring a smile to your face.
While buying a fire pit will cost you more, there are cheaper ways to get it done for under 60$! YouTube is your friend so use it to find out how other people built their own fire pit.
Get a Synthetic Turf
Though a natural lawn might tickle your fancy, you need to think about the long-term cost. The maintenance costs will be higher than choosing a synthetic one. What’s more, synthetic turfs let
you save more money by reducing your water bills. You’ll also don’t need to mow nor use fertilizers or pesticides.
If you have a large lawn, it can be challenging to install it on your own. That’s why you’ll need to reach out to reliable synthetic turf installation services for professional help.
Repurpose Tin Cans
After using all your tomato paste for your pasta, do you usually throw away the can?
Next time, keep some tin cans, wash them thoroughly, and paint them with several colors. You can then punch out holes from the bottom and fill them out with soil. Add your favorite herbs like mint and basil instead of the usual flower decorations so that you can make use of them in your dishes.
If you want to create pretty patterns or attach strings to hang them up, fill the tins with water and then freeze them. This prevents the metal from bending.
Ultimately, for a cozy and breezy night, you can punch out holes from the sides and add LED candles inside of them to create a romantic and chill atmosphere.
