4. Outdoor Lighting
Brightening up your backyard is easy! Consider hanging lanterns, lining wired lights on your trees, or adding some fixtures along your walkway. Your backyard can be a soothing retreat with a bit of ambient lighting!
Do you find yourself constantly getting your feet dirty from walking through the grass to get to your backdoor? Dodge the dirt by laying and spacing out large, flat stones to create an entrancing pathway! Backyard stones are simple to set up.
You may need to remove a section of grass from your backyard, then rake the dirt until it is flat prior to placing the stones down. Placing smaller stones alongside the larger ones will give the pathway a better flow. One of the most popular pathway trends is stamped concrete. Stamped concrete will allow you to create a beautiful backyard space while potentially increasing the value of your home.
