With that said, let’s take a look at some backyard renovation tips that are affordable, attractive, and capable of giving you the backyard you’ve always dreamed about.

Spruce Up Your Landscape By Adding Inexpensive Planters

To really help add life to your yard, it’s a good idea to add planters or raised beds so you can begin growing vegetables and flowers. It’s inexpensive to buy at your local gardening store, or you can shop online at your favorite retailer and get them delivered directly to your door.

You can go an even more inexpensive route and use items you have lying around your home. Some very effective and wonderful planter ideas include barrels, old pallets, crates, or even used car tires. You just need to repaint them and use them to add depth and dimension to your backyard by clustering them at different heights. This provides a delightful visual focal point.

Use Gravel For Accent

Gravel is excellent for creating a chic garden accent. The great thing about gravel is it’s inexpensive. It will withstand the test of time and it’s really low maintenance. Adding gravel accents around your garden will really help make your backyard pop and add additional dimensions to the already beautiful scenery.

Do you have spots in your garden where plants don’t thrive? You should use gravel in these areas to make the garden look more attractive. Plus, if you have areas in the garden where you have heavy foot traffic, putting gravel down is the right idea because it will eliminate footprints, mud holes, and anything else that could make your garden look unappealing.

Brighten Up Your Backyard With Outdoor Lighting

Do you like to entertain guests in your backyard at night? If so, you’re aware how hard it is to see clearly without proper lighting. There are some interesting things you can do with your outdoor lighting options, so visit a hardware store or a garden store to find out about the best lighting options to meet your needs in your backyard.

Imagine how beautiful your pergola, made by the best outdoor pergola builders, NJ has to offer, is going to look like with the right lighting accentuating its intricate details. You can sit there drinking beers, eating great tasting food, and telling stories all night long. Without the proper lighting, it will be difficult to appreciate this experience at best, so don’t hesitate to put fun, exciting and interesting outdoor lighting in your backyard.

    We’re pretty happy with our backyard. But of course it’s always a work in progress and it’s fun to watch how it changes with the seasons.

    These are good ideas. I know some folks who spent over $250K for their back yard with a rock waterfall, etc., it was gorgeous and a $1M+ home. I’d be content with something simple, I’d love to have a back yard!!

    My backyard really needs landscaping. It is neat and the grass is always mowed but it looks boring. I need to get some planters with colorful flowers and I like the outdoor lighting idea too.

  • Tamra Phelps

    I like the idea of lighting outside (for looks, not just for seeing at night, lol.) We have a neighbor who has strung all kinds of lights & it is really pretty at night…even if it looks like they’re celebrating Christmas year-round, ha!

    When we moved here nearly 20 years ago it was just an acre of grass & weeds. Now it’s beautiful (but a lot of work!) with roses, trees and raised beds so Mum doesn’t have to bend. I love pots around the house for instant colour & usually get plants that will self-seed so they last for years!
