Easy Ways to Bring Your Backyard from Plain to Paradise

Home Improvement

Growing up, the backyard was a place where you would take refuge. It was a place that could be transformed with a simple lawn chair and your imagination. There were dragons to be fought, princesses to be saved, and an evil dictator that was begging to be overthrown--all by dinnertime. The years went by, you grew up, and all of a sudden when you look out your back door, the yard doesn't seem so magical anymore. Instead of an obstacle course full of adventure, you just see weeds that need pulling and an overgrown tree that is in serious need of some tender loving care. Don't let the work that needs to be done overwhelm you; instead, here are 3 simple ways to take your backyard from plain to paradise.

Plant Some Color

No matter the time of year, a splash of color can make any yard look more alive. Especially in the spring, simply adding a handful of your favorite flowers or potted plants can transform the open space. Suddenly, instead of a field of one dimensional green, your backyard could be home to a rainbow of different species of plants. Not only will your property become more vibrant with color, but those plants will attract new birds, insects, and other wildlife to your area. If you want to get really creative, you can research and find plants that will attract a specific animal or creature that you would like to see more of. For instance, if you want to see more butterflies floating around your home, plant some lavender. If the urge to brighten up your lawn strikes in the fall, have no fear. Bulbs are a wonderful option that you can plant as the weather turns cold, forget about, and then be surprised by their beauty when they blossom in the spring.

Expand Your Home

If you are feeling a bit more adventurous than just planting some flowers, try building a tree house. That old oak that has been in the corner of the yard since you were a kid has been growing stronger and stronger each moment while waiting for you to take this step. The tree house doesn't have to be anything too elaborate; in fact, it could simply be a few pieces of lumber and a tarp. However, the bigger the better. Get as creative and detailed as you wish because this tree house is sure to be the talk of the neighborhood when you take the extra leap and hire a commercial contractor in Sacramento to install electricity. Now, not only do you have a tree house, but you also have a fully functioning place all to yourself to go when your wife gets angry that you forgot her birthday--again.

Invite the Neighbors

Sometimes the answer to an empty space is simply to fill it. Your backyard can seem overwhelmingly empty when looking at it from inside your house, but once you are out in it, the space never seems to be quite so bad. To help break in the area, invite your neighbors over for a potluck barbecue. Not only will you start associating the backyard with these happy memories and filling your lawn to its potential, but you will also get a head start at getting your neighbor's son to mow it for no charge after he breaks your favorite serving dish. Who knows, maybe inviting your neighbors over for a simple potluck will lead the way to more activities and events that are sure to fill your backyard with joy and your stomach with great food.

So the next time you are staring out your window into the empty abyss that is your backyard, remember that the solution to your problem is easy. Plant some flowers to add a pop of life, hire that commercial contractor in Sacramento to install electricity in your newly built tree house, and invite your neighbors over for a gathering. An empty space is never as daunting once filled, and an empty yard is always more fun when used.
