Create a Fun and Comfortable Outdoor Living SpacePosted Monday, June 1, 2020
Time to Spruce up your Backyard
Now that the weather is getting warmer and we have all been cooped up in our house, it's time to get out of the house and tend to your outdoor living space. You can easily make your backyard a fun area of the house for the whole family to enjoy.
Start by cleaning your deck, patio and outdoor furniture. If your deck is looking dingy, give it a facelift by investing in power washing and staining. Repair or replace worn patio stones or concrete. Make sure your patio cushions are clean and in good condition. Updating your backyard not only makes it more enjoyable for the family but is a good investment if you ever consider selling your home.
Invest in planters to place strategically around your patio with a variety of seasonal plants and flowers. Hang fun outdoor lights, look for different colors or patterns to suit your tastes. Plant a vegetable or herb garden. Have the kids help pick out the vegetables and tend to the garden - you never know, it may get them to actually eat their vegetables!
Ideas to Make Your Backyard Fun!
We at The Sharon Falco Group know how hard it sometimes is to get the kids off of their devices and outside to enjoy time with the family. Here are some ideas to make your backyard living space fun:
- Build a treehouse - It can be a simple structure or an elaborate one as long as it's supported by strong trees.
- Hang a hammock - your kids might still use it to play on their devices but at least they're outside enjoying the fresh air!
- Build a fire pit - who doesn't love s'mores!
The Sharon Falco Group hopes your family enjoys this warmer weather together. Thank you to all of our loyal real estate customers for your support! Please contact us for any of your current or future real estate needs including buying or selling your home. Contact Sharon Falco at 630-307-2760.
