To give your backyard that ‘wow’ factor, inground pool covers manufacturer, Loop-Loc, shares six ways you can give your backyard a fresh look this summer.
- Clean up the clutter
Go through everything you would normally stuff in the shed e.g. gardening tools, kids’ toys, and extra plant pot. Sell, give, or throw away anything you no longer use and organize whatever you have left in an easy-to-find-way to prevent eyesores.
- Add some movement
Is your patio in need of a signature item? A great addition to any backyard would be a porch swing for two or more people. While looking at swing designs, think about adding pillows, and even blankets, to make it the coziest place outside of your home.
- Introduce water
A bird bath, mini pond, or small waterfall will help bring together nature and a sense of calmness to your backyard the next time you lounge around.
- Shine some lights
Is your backyard too dark at night or has many areas with blind spots away from the patio? Hang some string lights. By wrapping illumination around tree trunks and other elements of your yard you will create a sense of tranquility as the night rolls on.
- Invest in furniture
Does your patio need a statement piece? While buying items is pricey, buying one or two new chairs will help liven the area and make your guests as comfortable as possible.
- Look at plants
Cut down dead bushes, any weeds, and manicure overgrown shrubs. Also, include a splash of colour by adding flowers and herbs to your garden.
