Backyard Makeover on a Shoestring Budget

Don’t Despair, Repair!

As we head into summer in Utah County, UT, it won’t be long before you’ll be planning barbecues, lawn games, and friendly get-togethers in your backyard. First, however, you may need to spruce up your outdoor space. Before you take any drastic measures, take a step back and consider these easy, budget-friendly ideas from Weed Man Lawn Care.

You might already have the standard table-and-chair setup, but there are many other furniture pieces to explore. Improve the lounge-ability of your outdoor space with hammocks and hanging chairs. They’re relatively easy to DIY, and act as a conversation piece for guests (not to mention, how fun are they?!). If you’d prefer to lie closer to the ground, you can also use a wooden pallet to create a comfortable outdoor daybed. If you’re already satisfied with your current seating arrangement but want to opt-in on the furniture trend, try displaying plants on an eye-catching side table to add some greenery to your space.


Backyard Accessories
Sometimes it’s the littlest things that can make a huge difference in your backyard space. If you want to accessorize in your backyard but are unsure of how to go about it, consider creating a ‘theme'. Do you want your backyard to be modern? Farmhouse chic? Colorful? Cozy? Once you’ve come up with a vision, it will be much easier to find the right pieces.

Bring your backyard vision to life with pillows, throw blankets, lanterns, plants, curtains, or even candles—all small and inexpensive ways to bring about big change to your outdoor space.

It’s time to set the mood. Though often overlooked, lighting can make a huge difference in the ‘wow-factor’ of your backyard— and it doesn’t need to be expensive, either. A simple string of Edison bulbs or twinkle lights can create a warm and cozy atmosphere for late nights with company outside.
