A round-up of our favorite DIY projects to completely transform yards and porches for curb appeal and outdoor entertaining.
If I had a dollar for every outdoor project we did in the dead heat of summer where I said, “Holy cow! I wish we had done this in the spring.” Well, I’d have a lot of dollars. Ya feel me?
Whew! I’m sweating just thinking about some of them.
But I’ll tell you this: our outdoor projects are some of my absolute favorites. They really are the gifts that keep on giving year after year as our girls run around in the yard with friends and we invite family and neighbors over for backyard cookouts and pool parties.
It’s taken us nearly four years to get to this point. In the beginning, the job always felt so monumental and completely impossible. But it’s the little steps and the “taking small bites” out of this backyard that have really amazed us at how far we’ve come. And we’re not even finished yet.
Home wasn’t built in a day, that’s for sure. But goodness that long journey is so rewarding and worth so much more than if we had just hired a contractor to transform this entire space within a few weeks. I appreciate it ever so much more because our own hard work with our own two hands went into so much of it.
We have so many great outdoor projects planned in the coming months, but if you’re needing some ideas now, these are our top 10 favorites.
