Fun DIY backyard projects

March 25th, 2016 | Higgins Group Real Estate

backyard projectsThere are many ways to turn your backyard into a fun outdoor area which you and your family or friends can enjoy spending time in.

The great news is, you don’t have to break the bank in order to create new features or areas for your backyard. Here are a few great DIY projects you can have some fun with:

Create a lounge chair using yard waste

Use a few logs to create a unique, rustic lounge chair that’s great for family barbeques and get-togethers. This project might require some woodwork skills and cutting and drilling equipment, but you’ll end up with something you won’t find in any furniture store.

Take a look at this page to find out how to make a lounge chair out of yard waste.

Add an in-ground trampoline

To create an in-ground trampoline, all you really need to do is dig a hole large enough to fit your trampoline, and drop it in. Not only will you have a unique and quirky feature in your yard that doesn’t take up space, but your trampoline’s now safer for kids as well, as they won’t be falling from a short height in case they bounce off.

For detailed instructions, visit this site.

Make your own outdoor patio over the weekend

While it may not exactly be budget-friendly, creating your very own outdoor patio is a great way to enhance your backyard. Best of all, it won’t take too much time and effort, and you can make use of a lot of stuff you might already have around the house.

Take a look at these instructions on how to make your own patio.

Construct a fire pit tabletop display

Some of us may not have the space or the budget for a full-size fire pit, so here’s a great alternative – mini fire pits that look beautiful, are portable, and will only cost you as little as $25. These things can be placed on side tables, used as a centerpiece, or as lights that provide a warm glow to your patio.
