Spring is a great time to turn your lawn into an outdoor paridise. It’s easy to dress up your backyard with fresh flowers, throw rugs, string lights and more! Here are some ideas for how you can make your yard look amazing this spring:
Plant a flower garden
A flower garden is an excellent way to add some color to your lawn, and it’s also a great way to bring the outside in. You’ll want to plant flowers that bloom in spring, summer and fall—to make sure you have something beautiful blooming at all times of year. Plus, if you choose plants that attract bees, butterflies and other pollinators, then your yard can be both aesthetically pleasing and beneficial for wildlife!
If you’re looking for inspiration on which flowers are best suited for your climate zone (and how much sun they need), there are plenty of resources online where you can find data on specific species. But if you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the options out there—don’t worry! There are plenty of easy-to-grow annuals that thrive in temperate climates like ours here in North America: roses; marigolds; zinnias; petunias; verbena
Add some color with outdoor pillows
You can also add some color to your lawn with outdoor pillows. You can make them from a variety of materials and use them for both indoor and outdoor use. Here are some ideas:
- Pillows made from fabrics or beads are great for adding decorative touches to your patio furniture or backyard barbecue area. You could even use these pillows as place settings for your guests! These types of pillows are usually inexpensive, making them cost-effective additions to any party decorating scheme.
- Decorative pillows can also be used in tree houses, pavilions and other whimsical structures designed specifically for children’s play areas. This type of pillow is often made with brightly colored fabrics that will attract kids’ attention while adding fun elements into the design of their play space.
Install outdoor lighting.
Installing outdoor lighting is a great way to create an inviting space and can be done fairly easily. Whether you want to add some accent lights, illuminate your deck or patio area, or set up pathways so that guests can find their way around at night, the right lighting will make all the difference.
When it comes to picking out the right lighting for your needs, there are a few things you’ll need to keep in mind: cost and energy efficiency are two big ones. The cost of materials isn’t always as high as you might think—if you’re looking for something simple like single LED bulbs in your trees or bushes (or even inside pots), these can easily be bought online for less than $10 each! If this is all too much for your budget though (and let’s face it—it probably will be) there are other options such as solar-powered lights which provide ambient light without costing anything beyond installation costs (which aren’t bad either).
Hang string lights
Hanging string lights are one of the easiest ways to add a little bit of decor to your lawn. They can be strung up anywhere, and they’re also a great way to illuminate what’s happening on your property. You can use them in conjunction with other spring decorations such as lanterns, or just hang them by themselves. If you want something more permanent, consider investing in solar-powered string lights so they’ll always be ready for use.
Invest in a fire pit for your backyard
A fire pit is a versatile addition to any outdoor entertainment space. It can be used for cooking, roasting marshmallows, or just having a good time with friends.
To build a fire pit:
- Dig a hole that’s approximately 6 inches deep and 3 feet wide in the center of your lawn. The sides should slope slightly inward so that rainwater doesn’t overflow the top when it rains. Make sure you are using non-toxic materials for digging, like plastic spoons or metal forks if you don’t have tools available! You may want some help from friends and family members if this is your first time building something large like this–it’s best not to break any bones trying out new hobbies!
- Line the bottom of the hole with stones from around your yard; these will create an even base for where later on we’ll put our grill rack so we can cook up all kinds of delicious foods! You could also use pieces of broken glass instead because those too would give us plenty support but please don’t hurt yourself getting these materials because I’m sure there are better ways out there…maybe just stick with rocks?
Add a few new throw rugs to your deck or patio
Adding a few new throw rugs to your deck or patio can give the space a whole new look. Rugs are a great way to define spaces, help with noise reduction, temperature control and moisture control. They also add color and pattern to your patio.
Here’s how you can use rugs in spring:
- There are plenty of outdoor rug options that will work perfectly on your patio or deck. Choose one that complements the colors in your outdoor décor scheme so it doesn’t clash with the overall aesthetic of the space (for example, if you have lots of blue accents throughout your yard). You can find decorative throws that have an all-over pattern or one with just a border design on them—either way will work!
Give your deck or patio a fresh coat of paint
You can give your deck or patio a fresh coat of paint for spring. While the weather may be turning, there’s still time to do it before it gets too warm.
The key to painting your outdoor space is using quality paint and applying two coats. You’ll want one thick coat on the surface, followed by a second thin one so that you don’t risk getting drips in all the wrong places.
To avoid drips (and keep them from happening), apply your first coat with a roller, which distributes the paint evenly across the surface and prevents you from having to go back over spots you’ve missed by hand. After that coats dries completely (this could take up to 24 hours), apply another one using either a brush or roller depending on what’s giving you trouble: brushes are great for trimming around windowsills or edging where wall meets floor; rollers are useful if there are any large patches needing attention like siding along side decks/patios).
These projects will help you turn your lawn into an outdoor paridise.
The best part about these projects is that you can do most of them yourself. It’s not difficult to build a pavilion or tree house and it won’t cost much either.
