When you hear the word “renovation,” you probably automatically think about the cost. If not the price, it’s the massive amount of work to be done. However, these simple, budget-friendly yard renovations will have your house will feeling like home in no time.
Budget-friendly yard renovations should start with good lighting on your property. Whether you use the lights for safety or to prevent bugs, they’ll be great additions. There’s a variety of exterior lights that can blend into your home, but if you want to get fancy, you can purchase LED lights and lanterns to place around your yard.
Remove a Tree
Making extravagant changes to your yard is unnecessary, especially if you only want to make your house more visible. Tree removal is an option, and you don’t have to worry about killing any healthy trees if you have one that needs removed anyway—some characteristics that indicate that a tree needs removal include dead limbs, a leaning tree, or trunk damage.
Add a Pop of Color
Adding a garden is a sure way to brighten up your yard. Simply pick your space, decorate some bricks, add some soil, and plant the flowers.
If you don’t want an entire garden, you can line your walkway or yard perimeter with some flowers. If you’re not a fan of flowers but you still want to add a pop of color, you can always paint your porch.
Consider Yard Decorations
A simple way to renovate your yard is to add decorations, focal points, and a gathering area. Some quick decoration ideas include candles, flowers, and stand-up yard décor.
Adding a Focal Point
Having something to look at can take your yard from nothing to something. Creating a focal point in your yard may be all the renovation you need. A focal point can be a flag, a fire pit, or a statue.
Establishing a Gathering Area
If you’re a people-person, having a gathering area may make all the difference. The site doesn’t have to be fancy; you can create your gathering area by simply placing seating around the yard. If you don’t want basic lawn chairs, you can use pillows, inflatable furniture, or a daybed. Once you craft your plan, your yard will be perfect for casual lounging.
