Spring is here! With warmer weather comes the opportunity to design and implement spring projects to enjoy for the rest of the year. Today, we are sharing with you 5 fun backyard spring projects that you can DIY or hire a professional to implement.
5 Fun Backyard Spring Projects
Add a little magic to your backyard with a winding garden path; perfect if you have gardens or a multi-level backyard. All you need are your preferred garden stones! We highly recommend laying out a route in advance and clearing all debris away before getting started.
Do you have a large, sturdy tree in your backyard that could hold the weight of an individual? If yes, this is the perfect spot for a tree swing. All you need is a strong rope cut to equal lengths and something to form the seat. Just make sure that the swing is sturdy before sitting.
Don’t have a tree? That’s okay! Various swinging benches can be made or purchased instead.
Raised Garden Beds
With spring comes planting season! Raised garden beds are an excellent way to protect your gardens from weeds, reduce soil erosion, increase water retention, provide more growing space, and make it easier for you to manage when gardening (i.e., no more crawling around on your knees!)
We highly recommend using sturdy wooden materials to build the boxes and invest in high-quality soil. Then, you can plant flowers or produce with ease!
Trellises are a multi-functional piece that you can utilize however you like. Many homeowners use them as privacy walls, to support plants, or as a piece of décor. There is a vast array of trellis styles, everything from simple wires with two posts to complex designs requiring a master carpenter. Therefore, we recommend taking the time to research which one would complement your design style and functional needs best.
Are you sick of throwing coffee grounds and eggshells in the trash when you know you could utilize them in your gardening? Reduce your waste by building a compost bin. Compost bins can turn various food scraps into a thick, beautiful mulch that you can then use in your gardens!
DIY or Hire a Pro in Southern California
Are you wondering if these projects are DIY or if it’s better to hire a pro? That all depends on your skills and expertise. These projects are possible for crafty DIYers with experience in woodworking and the tools to do it. However, if you don’t even know where the hammer is at in your home, we highly recommend hiring a pro to ensure that you get a high-quality project and don’t hurt yourself.
