51 Budget Backyard DIYs That Are Borderline Genius
If you want to make a DREAM backyard where you can entertain yourself but the budget is LOW, then these budget BACKYARD DIY ideas are perfect to look at!
Can’t afford that dream deck or in-ground pool you’re dying for? There are still ways to get a beautiful backyard that’s perfect for entertaining.
1. Plant lemongrass as a natural way to keep mosquitoes away.
Buy a mature plant from an Asian market or grocery store. When you get it home, trim the tops of the plant and remove any dead parts. Plant it in a clear jar of water and place on a sunny windowsill. Within a few weeks, it will develop roots and can be transplanted to your garden.
2. Rinse your dirty feet off in a waterproof frame filled with flat stones.
Rocks in a small box give you a place to stand while cleaning your feet with the hose. And the sand goes into the box, not your lawn.
3. Replace the light bulbs in an old chandelier with inexpensive solar lights. Hang it from a tree branch.
You’ll have gorgeous outdoor lighting without having to provide electricity.
