Looking for an outdoor project to tackle in 2017? If you’ve got an itch to make some improvements to your outdoor space, pick something off this list of 5 outdoor projects you should start in 2017.
Garden with a Purpose
Build a garden unlike the rest. Only plant flowers and edibles which are local to your state. Or, plant flowers that attract bees and butterflies. A final gardening option could be to plant foods like cabbages, carrots, tomatoes, and peppers so you can save money on groceries while gardening.
Create a Game Court
A new trend in backyard landscaping is to create an adult-play space. The most common example is a horseshoe pit, but why stop there? Create a bocce ball pit, a regulation cornhole court, or your very own beach volleyball court!
Build a Fire Pit
There’s nothing like a backyard fire, and with the construction materials available today, it’s very easy to put one in. Whether you dig out a pit yourself in your backyard, or you have a professional build one into your deck, a fire pit is a great outdoor project you should start in 2017.
Construct a Deck
Speaking of decks… if you don’t have one, then 2017 is the perfect year to build one. If building a deck isn’t something you want to tackle alone, call a local Maryland deck company for a free consultation and to discuss your options.
Redo a Path
Do you have a walkway around your home that is long over-due for some upgrading? Replace your walkway with large stepping stones and then fill around the stones with a ground cover like creeping phlox. Or, instead of a plant, fill around your stepping stones with smaller, river rocks and paint some of them with a glow-in-the-dark paint for night-time visibility!
