Backyard Makeover on a Shoestring Budget

Don’t Despair, Repair!

As warmer weather approaches, it won’t be long until you start making backyard makeover plans to spruce up your outdoor space for the summer. Before you take any drastic measures, step back and consider these easy, budget-friendly ideas from Weed Man Lawn Care.

Patio Furniture

You’d be surprised what a difference patio furniture can make. You might already have the standard table-and-chair setup, but have you considered trying something a little more creative? Hammocks and hanging chairs are relatively easy to DIY, and they act as a conversation piece for guests (not to mention, how fun are these?!) You can also use a wooden pallet to create a comfortable outdoor daybed, or display plants on eye-catching side tables.


Outdoor Accessories

Sometimes, the littlest things can make a big difference in your backyard space. Consider creating a ‘theme’ for your backyard and acquiring the right accessories to go along with it. Do you want your backyard to be modern? Farmhouse chic? Colourful? Cozy?

Try mastering a theme for your backyard with simple and affordable accessories such as pillows, throw blankets, lanterns, plants, curtains, or even candles.



It’s time to set the mood. Lighting can make a huge difference in the ‘wow factor’ of your backyard, and it doesn’t need to be expensive either. A simple string of Edison bulbs or twinkle lights can create a warm and cozy atmosphere for late nights with company outside. Plus, you can save on lighting when you buy it closer to the end of the season when backyard accessories are on sale.


A Lush, Green Lawn

Finally, one of the most impactful changes you can make in your outdoor living space is improving the health of your lawn. Regular watering and maintenance will promote a lush, green lawn that you will be proud to show off in your newly made-over backyard.
