Outdoor DIY Projects You Can Do Yourself!

Posted: Friday, 14 August 2015 @ 09:57

You don’t always need to call in the professionals there are plenty of outdoor projects you can take on yourself. All you need is time, patience, the right tools, bit of common sense, imagination and some money to fund the project.

Shop around for the best deals you can get when buying supplies, but don’t always go for the cheapest materials as they will not last as long as the more expensive versions.

With summer on its way, more and more of us will be spending time in our gardens. So now is a good time to improve our gardens.

Here are some DIY home improvement ideas you can tackle yourself:

Add A Conservatory

If you have the space consider adding a conservatory in your back garden, there are many DIY conservatory kits on the market which will add value to your property but won’t break the bank. Make sure you do your research before you buy and always buy from an established reputable company.

Dining Room Conservatory

Build An Arbour

Add some height and interest in your garden by building an arbour at the entrance of your garden or over a path way.

Arbours can be built in various sizes depending on how much coverage you want. If you want to create a tunnel, then build two or three structures placing them roughly 2 foot apart.

Build A Summer House

Summer houses can serve many purposes and are an attractive feature in your garden. Consider your needs and how much space you are willing to lose to add this structure into the garden. It is important that you don’t build a summer house that is too big for the garden.

Due to the attractive appearances of summer houses, you are able to build your summer house just about anywhere in the garden, but make sure that it is not too close to your house as this will look out of place.

Create A Place to Seat

Make a cosy and practical seating area in the corner of your garden. The benches are perfect for relaxing and they double up as waterproof storage for your outdoor cushions and pillows.

Add Some Raised Beds

For a low maintenance garden, use a mix of slabs and wooden sleepers to create a simple and easy to maintain garden. The raised sleeper beds make planting easy and add interest and depth to the garden. This is a really good solution for small gardens.

Make A Herb Garden

If you are keen on gardening and cooking then consider building a kitchen herb garden.

Add A Large Chalk Board

Let your children’s creative side be unleashed. Mount a large chalk board on a wall or fence in the garden.
