A small DIY deck or patio – Patios can be built with many different materials, including pavers, concrete and wood. Adding a deck or patio will make your yard more attractive, provide a space for furniture and increase the resale value of your home.

Create a path – Whether you have a garden, play area, pool or fire pit in your backyard, create a path using bricks, stones or pavers. Additionally, you can add outdoor landscape lights to illuminate the walkway.

Install a pergola – Looking for something to provide shade over your patio? Try building or purchasing a pergola. You can even grow climbing plants across the top or string lights for extra appeal!

Add a fire pit – You can build a simple fire pit or purchase one from your local home improvement store. Add chairs around it and enjoy s’mores or drinks with friends.

String lights around the living space – Stringing lights over your outdoor seating space can instantly make it feel cozier and more inviting. You can attach lights to trees or to an outdoor structure, or if you don’t have anything to attach them to, try this DIY planter post.
