Fun DIY Landscaping Ideas

The spring and summer seasons are the perfect time to get excited about the way your yard looks, and to try some new landscaping ideas.

For many retirees, the more time they spend at home the more they want their home to look impressive inside and out. Even if you’re new at landscaping, you have plenty of options on how to make your yard look great with these DIY tips.

The fine people at Backyard Boss put together a comprehensive list of options anyone can try out regardless of their landscaping experience or the size of their yard.

Some of the most popular ideas to explore for your DIY landscaping project include:

  • Planting Around Edges — Even a small flower bed can accent the edge of a building, and make a big visual statement without taking up much room.
  • Use Outdoor Lighting — Your flowerbed, garden, patio, gazebo, or other outdoor area will look more stylish when you use outdoor lighting like freestanding torches or hanging rope lights.
  • Reuse Old Fixtures — Whether it’s milk crates, wooden pallets, or even an old bathtub, any container can be fair game to house plants and become the centerpiece of a landscape setup.
