Spring is in full swing here in the Triangle—and while this season might not be going to plan, you can still kick back and enjoy the warm weather. If you’re ready to make the most of your outdoor space, we have a few tips you won’t want to miss.
6 Ways to Spruce Up Your Outdoor Space for Spring
Just because you’re staying at home this spring doesn’t mean you can’t spend time outside! Here are a few easy ways to really enhance your outdoor space, whether it’s a yard, porch, deck, patio, or balcony.
Do Some Cleaning
Nobody loves brushing dust off the deck or hosing away the pollen…but it’s an essential step to getting your outdoor space ready for spring! While you’re cleaning, be sure to also address any seasonal maintenance tasks, such as cleaning the gutters or fertilizing your lawn.
Create an Outdoor Living Space
Although you probably won’t be hosting a get-together anytime soon, you can still transform your outdoor area into a full-blown living space. If you have the room, consider investing in some good quality patio furniture from Wayfair or Amazon. Don’t forget to add a few finishing touches, such as potted plants or an outdoor rug.
Start a Garden
Gardens are both beautiful and practical—and they don’t have to take up much space, either. If you don’t want to plant directly into the ground, consider buying or building raised some beds. For an added touch of style, try incorporating some pots in different sizes and colors!
Add Extra Lighting
Lighting can completely alter your yard or patio—and it’s also a great way to brighten up your space at night. Try stringing some fairy lights along a fence post or adding decorative lanterns along your walkways for some added form and function.
You’ve probably heard of landscaping, but what about hardscaping? Hardscaping includes any non-living parts of your outdoor space, such as patios, walkways, or pergolas. However, before you take on a DIY project, be sure to avoid the hardware store and get any supplies delivered to your door.
Add a Fire Pit
Believe it or not, fire pits are totally inexpensive—and you can use them all year round! If you don’t want to buy a standalone pit, create a gravel base, pile up some bigger pavers, and add an insert ring or bowl!
