Help! I Need a Summer Backyard Makeover – Giveaway

Para español da click aquí.

So it’s time to share my new assignment as a Lowe’s Creative Ideas Network Member.  Have you seen my kids’ room makeover? How about my curb appeal makeover?  Well, now it’s time to tackle the backyard and get it summer ready, wooo hoooo, I have two months to complete the project, June and July, so far my husband has been working very hard on the sprinklers, some of them are not showing up when we turn the water on!  So basically my backyard still looks the same.  Let me show you how it looks right now.

Lots of cables from lights that used to work 10 years ago.

As you can see little grass (what there is is new!) and few plants.

Lots of pots, chairs covered in spider webs and rocks without a home.

This is my covered patio and my very neglected grass (the green parts are recently arrived).

As you can see it needs a lot of work, I’m lost! I need to choose an area and make it pretty, don’t you think? Do you have any ideas or tips? What do you think I should do?


I want to invite you to sign up for the Lowe’s Creative Ideas Magazine, it’s free! Also, check out Lowe’s at Pinterest, a great resource for ideas and pics to get you started on your own projects at home, and don’t miss the Lowe’s Creative Ideas website where you can find all kinds of great ideas.

Of course I have a giveaway today!

Would love to see you put in new grass, bark in your garden beds and flowers in your pots on your patio.

Add some perennial flowers in ground and potted. Maybe a small fountain in the corner by the palms with a bench and lights.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
