How to Design a Stunning, Budget-Friendly Outdoor Space This Spring


Given that you will likely spend a lot of time outdoors this spring, it's important to improve its state and ensure that it looks and feels amazing. This way, you will be happy to have friends and family over whenever you all have the time for a small get-together. Here are five ways in which you can design a stunning and budget-friendly outdoor space this spring.

Install Outdoor Turf

Because it doesn't grow or spread, artificial turf is beautiful and vibrant without being fertilized on a regular basis. Turf will remain lush, green, and toxin-free. Harsh fertilizers can also have a disastrous effect on the local environment, causing an overgrowth of algae in streams, rivers, ponds, and lakes. This is why you should consider turf for your lawn so you're sure you will have a good-looking lawn without spending money that you could save.

Add an Outdoor Feature

Whether you get a bird feeder or a water feature, you can play up your outdoor space with a simple feature. You could buy a complete one or have one constructed on-site to make the most of any unused space you may have outdoors. If you prefer to buy a complete and ready-made feature, shop from people disposing of theirs, as this will be a lot cheaper than buying brand new. You can also look online for used outdoor features. With some simple restoration techniques depending on what the material is, you can make an old piece look brand new and amazing.

Add Lighting

Another step you could take is to add some lighting to your outdoor space. Doing this will allow you to be able to spend time outdoors, enjoying the fresh air and the stars as you sit out until late at night. The fact that neighborhoods and homes with outdoor lighting were up to 7% less likely to be victims of a crime than homes without it should also show you the importance of getting outdoor lighting as far as security goes. Lighting will help you make your home more secure and will also illuminate its features, adding to its overall value. Get LED lights to make sure you minimize negative effects on the environment and also make savings, as you won't have to replace them regularly.

Clean Up

The power of a simple clean-up with a garden hose and some brushes and sponges can be easy to overlook, but it's something you will be glad you did. Mobilize your family and some friends for an afternoon of cleaning that will afford you a cleaner home fast and affordably. Collect any debris on the roof and in your gutters and then clean the roof with a brush and some eco-friendly soap. When this is done, spray the siding and renew it easily to make your home look welcoming and fresh.

Use Discounted Material for an Outdoor Kitchen

An outdoor kitchen will be priceless to have in the spring and summer seasons. This is because it will make it easier for you to hold parties and meetups outdoors. It will also enable you to do most or all of your cooking outdoors and effectively keep the home cooler and more odor-free. To make sure that you're spending money well on your outdoor kitchen, use discounted materials to construct and decorate it. What you should be aiming for is maximum function. With granite countertops being by far the most popular and being fitted in 64% of new homes, you could shop around for someone seeking to dispose of them so you get a good deal. Only 14% of new homes use laminate countertops, so stay modern by going for granite if you can.

If you follow the ideas outlined above, you will have an easy time creating an amazing outdoor space this spring that you will be proud of.
