Sprucing Up Your Backyard on a Budget

Get the Yard You Want for Less

With all the time you’ll spend in your yard this season, it won’t be long until you start making backyard makeover plans to spruce up your outdoor space – hey, we’re all guilty of it! Before you start tearing down your existing deck or begin ordering new patio furniture online, take a step back and consider these easy, budget-friendly ideas from Weed Man Lawn Care.

The Right Lighting

You don’t need to invest in pricey built-in deck lighting to give your outdoor space the right look and feel. A simple string of twinkle lights or funky solar lights can pack just as much of a punch. Purchasing lights toward the end of the season can help you score even bigger savings, as most stores will be clearing out for fall inventory by August or early September. 


It may not be the most budget-conscious move to splurge on a whole new set of patio furniture. Instead of making big purchases this year, spend less by sticking to accessories that really pop. Think colorful or pattern-heavy outdoor cushions, modern wicker planters, and bright hanging baskets. Even something as simple as a new gazebo cover can go a long way when it comes to giving your backyard gathering space a mini makeover. 

Shade and Seating

Two low-cost items that can really change the configuration of your yard are shade and seating. Focus on one this year and the other next year to help curtail spending. When it comes to shade, a brightly-colored umbrella, pergola or gazebo can dress up your yard and serve a functional purpose. For seating, focus on those “one off” chairs that will act as a conversation piece as well as a place to relax and put your feet up. Papasans, swing chairs, hammocks, or lounges are a great place to start.
