5 DIY Projects to Improve Your Outdoor Living Spaces

Summer is here, and it’s a great time to take a look around home for things to make your outdoor spaces more livable and enjoyable. Consider these ideas to see if there is something that will make your time outdoors even more.

1. Rejuvenate Your Deck

Is your deck looking old and weathered? Give your deck a new life by cleaning and staining it. Pressure wash or use deck cleaner to remove the gray that has built up, then stain or seal it. You’re deck will look new and you’ll love sitting on your lounge chair admiring your handiwork.

2. Build a Fire Ring

Nothing feels better on a cool fall evening than sitting around a fire. Whether you enjoy roasting marshmallows with your family or sharing stories and drinks with your friends, it’s a great time. Use concrete pavers and a fire ring insert to create a fire pit. Pull up some chairs and get ready to enjoy some memorable nights. 

3. Grilling with Natural Gas

Tired of running out of propane while you’re grilling? A conversion kit can switch your grill from propane to natural gas. Enjoy your grill worry free and never make that quick trip for a new propane tank again.

4. Self Watering Planter

Do you like fresh tomatoes or veggies from your garden? Need fresh herbs for dinner? Maybe beautiful flowers to enjoy? Use 2 x 6” boards and half inch tubing to build a wooden self watering container. The options are endless and you can enjoy the fruits of your labor every day of the week.

5. Screen in Your Patio

Make your patio a bug free zone using 2 x 4’s to create studs or use your existing studs and a screening kit system to create a bug free zone. You’ll find yourself wanting to enjoy your patio every night!

With a just a little effort you can take your outside spaces from ‘nice’ to ‘WOW!’ Making your home more livable and enjoyable, and increasing your home’s value and beauty as well!
