When the weather starts getting warmer, most people want to spend their time soaking it up. Your backyard can be your personal oasis throughout the warmer months.
Being on the lookout to improve your backyard and make it the number one place to be this spring means you need to take several steps to start transforming your space.
One of the best ways to spruce up your backyard is with a few outdoor DIYs. If you’re wondering what the best projects you can complete this season are, we have you covered.
Be sure to keep reading for our guide on seven outdoor DIYs you need to do for spring.
1. DIY Outdoor Fireplace or Fire Pit
Even in the spring and summer months, you’ll find that the nights tend to get a bit chilly. The best way to combat the crisp night air is with a fireplace or fire pit outdoors. You’ll find that it is easy to make one yourself as long as you can get ahold of the right materials.
There are different types of fire-resistant materials, such as bricks, stones, and concrete. Having these materials will be the base of your DIY outdoor fireplace or fire pit, and the rest is easy to put together.
Be sure to find a good place to put your fireplace or fire pit. You’ll want it somewhere that you can set up seats, but also a good place where young kids or animals won’t get hurt.
2. DIY Outdoor Bar
Another way to enjoy the outdoors is by creating a bar for you and your guests to enjoy. The best part about a DIY outdoor bar is that you can get creative with the way that you design it.
Many people opt for a tiki-themed DIY bar, especially if they have a pool in their backyard. It is a fun way to spice up the space that you have and turn it into a party all the time.
You can turn any table and bar stool chairs into the DIY bar of your dreams. Be sure to stock it with all your favorite liquor so you’re ready to entertain everyone.
3. DIY Outdoor Birdfeeder
One of the biggest perks of being outside is getting to see the beauty of nature such as the wildlife. If you’re looking to keep some wildlife around your home, you’re going to want to create a birdfeeder to help attract birds and even other wildlife.
A bird that many people love having around is the hummingbird. Many people find that hummingbirds are a symbol of joy and happiness. That’s why they want to have them in their backyard.
If you’re looking to attract birds to your backyard, you need to get the best humming bird feeder. You can DIY hummingbird nectar with sugar and water to fill it.
4. DIY Outdoor Shower
Do you live on the beach or have a pool in your backyard? A practical amenity to add to your space is a DIY outdoor shower. Guests can use it to rinse off before hopping into the pool or before coming in from the sandy beach.
You’ll find installing a shower outside isn’t as difficult as you would think. Many people have done this project during the weekend, which means you can too.
Get creative with it and see how you can turn a basic shower into a statement piece. In fact, some people have hooked a shower head up to their hose in a pinch to pull off the DIY outdoor shower. By adding a shower curtain around a hula hoop, you can bring it up a notch.
5. DIY Outdoor Couch
Seating arrangements are crucial if you’re looking to enjoy the outdoors comfortably. The best seating you can get is a couch, but outdoor furniture can sometimes be a bit more pricey since it needs to withstand different forms of weather.
Instead, you can make your own DIY outdoor couch to satisfy your needs and help you feel comfortable outside.
If you’re looking to build your own outdoor furniture, such as a couch, you’re going to need to start by investing in some wood. After building the frame for the sofa, you can get the waterproof fabric to make couch cushions.
6. DIY Outdoor Table
Along with a couch, you’ll want a DIY outdoor table so you can set down drinks, snacks and do other outdoor activities.
You can go the same route as the couch and buy wood to make a new table for the outdoors. The best way to make a wooden outdoor table weatherproof is by sealing it with varnish, lacquer, or a stain.
On the other hand, you can get a bit creative with the table you choose for your outdoor space. For example, a great way to create a table is by gluing two planter pots together. That way, you will have an unusual table but one that fits with the outdoor theme.
7. DIY Outdoor Privacy Fence
A great way to add a bit of solitude to your backyard is by putting up a DIY outdoor privacy fence. Did you know you can save money by building one yourself?
You’ll need to invest in the wood and find a design that you like, but if you can pull it off, you’ll be saving money.
Plus, you also have the power to choose where you put the privacy fence in your backyard. That means if you only want to put up a small divider to block off your back patio, you can. It is a great way to give you some privacy and make your backyard feel more intimate.
Spring Outdoor DIYs
Completing outdoor DIYs in the springtime can be one of the best ways to transform your backyard space into an outdoor sanctuary throughout the warmer months. It won’t be as hot as completing the projects in the summer, and you will have them ready when you really want to use them.
