A great way to bring new life to your yard and surrounding areas is to change the landscape with new plants, shrubs, or trees. Constructing raised flower beds and using flowerpots can make your backyard look like a getaway. Be sure to not plant trees anywhere near the driveway or sidewalk because the roots can lift or crack the cement as they grow.


If you have an outdoor space you use in the evening such as a patio, decks, paths, and sidewalks, outdoor lighting from posts, lamps, in-ground, and more can create safe and light pathways. LED lights are a great option for their energy efficiency and give off less heat than other lightbulbs.


Build a space on even terrain out of stone, tile, or cement where you can set out that patio furniture and enjoy the open air.


A comfortable extension of the home, build a deck out of plastic, wood, or composite material. This can be on any terrain and can be customized with various colors, stains, and designs for railing and stairs. Host family barbeques, relax poolside, or make an outdoor kitchen.


Siding keeps your home weather tight and keeps it looking nice with varieties on color, material, and style. While you are at it, this is a great time to replace doors and windows too while the siding is removed.

Tackle your home improvement projects list this year with these suggestions. Create a space your family and friends can enjoy and that will also add more value to your home and overall comfort.
