Home Improvement / April 17, 2021
As Earth Day approaches, you might be thinking of ways to get outside and improve your outdoor spaces. There are many outdoor projects to make your yard look more attractive and more enjoyable, and ready for every season. Keep on reading to see how you can complete outdoor projects around your home.
A great way to add variety or new life to your yard is to plant trees or shrubs. Not only are they beautiful to look at, but they can also create privacy and shade in your yard. When planting, be sure to keep trees away from your driveway as the roots over the years can cause cracks or break up the cement. Do not plant your trees under or near power lines either as they may grow up into them and will have to be maintained.
Get some color in the yard with new flowers that come back again and again each year. Perennial flowers are a great addition as well as a fun activity in the springtime, bulbs will rebloom every year, bringing color and natural beauty to your outdoor spaces.
Make a comfortable space in your yard to relax, enjoy the view, or have a cookout with a new patio or deck. Decks can be installed with railing, stairways, banisters, and more. You can create an outdoor kitchen complete with electricity and plumbing.
Update your outdoor lighting with energy efficient lights such as LEDs. These lights give off less heat and use less energy to illuminate your yard or patio in the evening. Save on energy to celebrate this years’ Earth Day.
From improving lighting, installing a deck or patio to increase the use of your space, or planting and updating your landscaping, there are many ways you can complete some outdoor projects around the exterior of your home for Earth Day.
