There’s nothing quite like relaxing and enjoying your home’s outdoor space with friends on a warm summer evening. Does your backyard space need a little love before you get there? Here are some ideas for weekend projects to spruce up your outdoor space to make it perfect for entertaining.
Pergolas are an incredibly popular outdoor entertaining trend. They’re a fun and easy alternative to installing a fully enclosed porch and can be simple for homeowners to DIY over a couple of weekends using our handy how-to guides.
Hang string lights from the rafters with patio chairs underneath for a cozy nighttime atmosphere or hang a chandelier over an outdoor dining table for fun summer dinners with friends and family. You won’t want to go inside after hanging out here all day long, that much is certain.
Now that you’ve got the space for entertaining, you need the supplies. An outdoor bar is sure to make your guests want to come over time and time again and, if you keep it simple, can be built over one or two weekends.
For a stationary bar, build it so that it is able to hook up to electricity and install a small refrigerator underneath. Or build it on wheels for easy storage during inclement weather.
If you have a garden that you love showing off, consider adding some wooden decking around as a path. Wooden pathways give your garden a ton of character and can be just as durable as stone when treated properly.
Treated timber is great for garden projects because it is resistant to insect damage and wet conditions. Use the same stain for your garden path as your pergola, bar, deck, or other timber features to create a cohesive look throughout your outdoor space.
Outdoor entertaining is one of the best parts of summertime. Use these ideas to spruce up your backyard and in a couple weekends’ time you’ll have the outdoor entertaining space of your dreams.
