Summertime is the perfect opportunity to make your home and the land around it look extra nice for the warmer months. There are a number of fun and easy DIY projects you can take part in that will not only be an enjoyable pastime but will also assist in beautifying your personal space. Below, are just a few DIY projects you can try that are entertaining and fairly easy to complete.
- Planting Flowerbeds – Flowers are always a perfect way to decorate for the summer months. If you enjoy the relaxation of gardening, consider planting a flowerbed. There are a wide variety of plants to choose from including annuals, perennials, and dwarf plants. No matter what type you choose, planting and taking care of flowers can be a great activity to not only beautify your site but it also been known to reduce any stress you may be feeling.
- Refresh and Repaint – Do you have an outside shed or a set of steps that are in need of a revitalization? If so, covering them with a fresh coat of paint can be a great summer project. This can truly do wonders, especially for an older home and turn back the clock on wear and tear that might be present. Simply choose a color that fits your property and get to work!
- String Lights on your Porch to Add Flair – If you have a porch or patio, stringing lights is a way to add dynamic and flair to your property. Day or night, string lights can give your space an almost magical feeling. Although, ensuring they are seasonally appropriate is important. There are many shapes and styles to choose from, which can help in this area.
- Clean and declutter the outside of your home – Keeping the outside of your home clean can be just as important as keeping the inside clean. Power washing is a great technique to use to transform the condition of your home. Over time, bugs, tree pollen, and weather can deteriorate your home or leave it stained. The high intensity of a power washer can do wonders to reversing the condition of a home. In our communities, we offer a power-washer rental program that allows residents to use the machine and return it in good condition for most or all of their money back. This is a great way to keep things looking shiny without having to invest in your own materials. Clearing your outside space of any excess items you may not be using is another way to keep your site looking good.
