The dog days of summer are upon us and the weather will soon begin to break – is there a more perfect time to start a new backyard project? We don’t think so! Avoid sweaty laboring in the summer heat and use the cooler days that September brings to start your new backyard project.

Backyard Projects to Complete this Year

Whether your backyard needs some sprucing up or you want to add something completely new, the possibilities are endless! Check out these ideas for great backyard projects to complete this year for inspiration:

Give Your Old Deck a Makeover

Is your current deck looking sad and dreary? Consider re-staining or painting if your deck is made of wood, or replace railings and floor boards that are loose or weak.

Build a Vegetable Garden

Gardening is a fun hobby and growing vegetables can allow you to spend less on produce when shopping for groceries! Spinach is a great vegetable to start with, as it prefers cooler weather and can be planted and harvested before winter hits.

Add a Pond

Small ponds can be built into your yard or patio and will give your backyard a more nature-friendly feel. If you have the time to care for them, you can even add fish and other small amphibians to your pond!

Build a Fire Pit

What better way to ensure your backyard gets more use during the cooler months than to build a fire pit? Fire pits can be built into an existing deck or patio, or can be constructed in a separate area of your yard. Make sure to save room for plenty of chairs for your guests, or have more permanent seating installed around the pit.

Install a Deck or Patio

If your backyard seems lacking and you don’t already have a deck or patio to relax and entertain on, consider having a Maryland deck contractor install one! Outdoor decks and patios aren’t just for hot days, either – there are plenty of additions you can add to your new installation that will enable you to enjoy your living space all year round, like a hot tub or screened-in porch.
