Three Outdoor Projects You Can Tackle In One Weekend
If your July was anything like mine, it probably flew by before you even realized that the summer season was in full swing.
This is typically the time of year that I start to hear from homeowners realizing that a lack of enjoyable outdoor space is cutting into their playtime in the sun.
Luckily for you, summer is only half way through. To help you get back on track, here are three outdoor projects you can tackle in one weekend to make the most of your remaining warm months:
Still haven’t got that veggie garden you’ve been dreaming of going? The good news is it’s not too late to plant.
This season’s must-have, the raised planter box, is a perfect place to start up your late season edible garden.
The key is choosing a custom design that makes sense for your space.
With DIY here to stay, companies have gotten really good at helping novice builders get started.
MicroPro Sienna wood is a fantastic choice for a raised bed because it doesn’t require initial staining (talk about a time-saver!), it looks great, and it’s affordable.
Best of all, it has set new environmental benchmarks — its patented technology limits chemical run-off into the soil.
INCREASE YOUR OUTDOOR HOURS
With fewer bugs and beautiful breezes, August evenings are always my favourite. Why not take the time to make your outdoor space after-hours friendly?
Urban fire bowls or infrared heat lamps are a great way to instantly make your space cozier. And, once you add a few extra pillows and blankets, you’ll have a hard time ever heading back indoors!
CREATE SOME PRIVACY
Putting up a simple privacy screen between you and the neighbours has never looked so good or been so easy.
With outdoor materials and fabrics, trifold privacy screens are a temporary decorative piece that adds colour and character to any deck or balcony.
The key to maximizing the benefits of a privacy screen is to put it close to where you need the most protection but far enough away that it doesn’t crowd your useable space.
Find the spot that’s not too close and not too far away!
