Winter is upon us, but it is never too early to start thinking about spring backyard projects. If you are looking for ways to improve your outdoor space or just want to get outside once the weather turns warm, we can help. Outdoor home improvement may be the last thing you have on your mind with ice and snow on the ground, but planning your backyard projects in advance will help to take the stress out of spring cleaning and spring projects.
Backyard Projects To Tackle This Spring
When you’ve finished your backyard projects not only will you feel more accomplished, but you will also have an eye-catching backyard getaway to show for it. Here are a few of our top spring backyard project ideas for you to consider.
Make a Horseshoe Pit
For families looking to add some outdoor entertainment to their backyard, a horseshoe pit is a great choice. The spring is the perfect time to build a pit because the ground will be soft and most people will be reorganizing their landscaping anyway. A pit can give you and your family hours of easy entertainment with little to no cost of construction.
Crafting A Outdoor Shed
Everyone can use some extra storage space, and the spring is the perfect time to go about building this backyard project. Consider building a shed in your backyard to store your tools, seasonal items, or even extra items from your home. It will look nice in your backyard and give you an advantage when it is time to start your spring cleaning.
Plant & Garden Upgrades
Not every spring project needs to transform your whole yard or even be overly complicated. If you are looking for a way to breathe new life into your yard this spring, create or upgrade your garden. Adding cinderblock plant stands and making tomato cages is a good way to encourage new plant growth while renovating your spring garden at the same time.
A Backyard Barbeque Nook
Spring is the perfect time to get your yard ready for summer grilling. Instead of keeping your grill on a cramped corner of your back porch, consider building a new destination that serves as the focal point to your outdoor kitchen. You can create an in-ground grill and outdoor bar seating area in your backyard as a permanent grilling and entertainment area. Depending on the size of your yard, you can even add a mini waterfall. Consider building a fire pit to the seating area for extra appeal.
Once the kids have been inside for most of the winter they will rush to help you build some spring entertainment in the backyard. Instead of trekking all the way to the local park, build a playset for your children in your own backyard. Add a fort, slide, treehouse, and more. If you are very crafty, you can build one from scratch, but if you prefer to use less effort, you can buy a kit from any home goods store. With a few nails and some lumber, your kids will soon have a spring play set to entertain them all year long.
Create an Adult Oasis With A Spring Pergola
For adults interested in upgrading their outdoor entertainment, pergolas are great backyard projects. You can craft an inviting outdoor dining space while also defining your backyard. This is a great spring backyard project that will offer a range of benefits once the summer rolls around. You can also upgrade your landscape at the same time to get a fresh look for your backyard. No matter what you choose, we are sure your backyard will look great come spring.
