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!

If it were me, I would begin with the covered patio and make it the beginning and an oasis. Clean it up and then add some nice potted plants- paint the containers festive colors or buy them. Either replace the plastic table/chairs or if there is a hole for an umbrella, add an umbrella so you can enjoy the outdorrs again.

Flowers, flowers, flowers! Flowers are cheap and really change the feel of any setting. I think getting a patio umbrella and a few chairs would make it relaxed too. And if there’s any leftover money, string up some outdoor lights! 🙂

I would fix the sprinkler, put grass in, clean and decorate all your pots (have the kids sponge paint for summer art) & fill pots with colorful flowers.

I would work on the patio area and make it a comfy place to hang out. I like nicely placed shrubs or rose bushes in my yard.

My suggestion would be lots of colorful flowers. I think a yard looks great when there is a lot of contrasting colors.

If it were my backyard, I’d use pavers to make a grilling area, surrounded with nice landscaping and a water fountain.
