With spring finally being here, there’s nothing better than getting out of the house and enjoying some of the warmer weather! If you’re looking for something to do in your backyard, keep reading to see 5 perfect backyard projects for spring.
1) Installing a New Fence
Fences can be a way to keep out pests or they can be a way to provide a short border to your outdoor space. Your fence installation could be a way to give shape to your yard or it could help protect your garden from animals. If you already have a fence around the perimeter of your yard, you should double check it’s posted to make sure it’s still sturdy and that it isn’t rusting. Winter snow can erode the dirt around the posts.
2) Expand Your Garden
Everyone loves fresh fruit from a neighbor’s garden, so try to make yours a little larger this spring season! If you’re just getting started with gardening for the first time, plant your favorite veggies in one row and your favorite flowers in another! Another option is to plant a “medicine” garden. The Medicine gardens were planted for decades to the grow natural herbs and also spices that are used to help cure physical illness and as Western modern medicine became more popular, growing these gardens fell out of practice. However, they can be a valuable asset for any type of natural first aid program in addition to being beautiful!
3) Decorate With Some Metallic Lawn Ornaments
Sometimes you just want to spruce up your yard a little after the winter season. This can easily be done by buying metallic lawn ornaments! You can even create your own relatively easily. Buy a plastic ball and paint a thin layer of a “mirror-like” paint onto it. Allow to dry and then repeat until the plastic ball has reached the color you want. Hot Glue onto a wooden stick, and then place in one of your plants outside!
4) Create A Window Box
With spring being here, it’s time for you to decorate your home’s exterior with some potted plants! While you might have your normal array of pots that you’ll place around the exterior of your home, spruce up your windows this springtime through creating a beautiful window box container garden! A lovely combination of flowers can include petunias, wishbone flowers, and Aztec pink magic.
5) Revamp Your Indoors With Some New Plants
While you want to get outside this spring, the inside of your home should reflect the outside to a certain extent! Don’t allow the inside of your home to start to look bare without any plants going on! If you’re looking for more simple indoor plants to invest in then buy some nice and easy succulents (be sure to not overwater them!). If you’re looking for a plant that requires a bit more care, then consider buying a Chinese Money Plant. In addition to being a beauty, this plant is known for its air-purifying qualities.
Hope these ideas help you guys stay busy this spring season!
