How to Upgrade Your Backyard On a Budget

4 min read

With summer in full swing, there is no better time to revamp your outdoor living area. For an upscale look without the expense, here are a few ways to make your backyard look better on a budget.

1. Build a Deck or Patio

Create the perfect outdoor entertaining space by building your very own deck or patio. Adding outdoor furniture makes for a warm and welcoming space for family and friends to gather. If you already have a deck, consider giving it a fresh coat of paint or stain to improve its look and your home’s overall aesthetic. Not only does it revamp your backyard, but increases your home’s value, too.

2. Upgrade Your Patio Doors

Your patio doors are the gateway to your outdoor area. They need to look beautiful and stand up to heavy use. If your patio doors aren’t up to the challenge, it may be time to have new ones installed.

Window World of Beaumont offers traditional sliding glass doors and elegant french rail doors in a range of colors to match your style. Besides the upgraded look, you’ll enjoy the added benefits of energy efficiency and durability that lasts for many summers to come.

3. Lay Down an Outdoor Rug

Area rugs are a quick and inexpensive backyard update. Not only do they provide cushioning and added color, but also cover unsightly stains and cracks. With a variety of designs and colors, it’s easy to find the look to match your style.

4. Create a Stone Path

A backyard stone path creates functional walkways while adding visible interest to any space. From winding designs to modern square stepping stones, there are endless opportunities and styles to help you create an outdoor oasis. Plus, building a stone path can be a DIY project, saving you on installation costs. With minimal maintenance required, it’s a long-lasting and cost-effective solution.

5. Grow a Garden

With a garden, the opportunities are endless. Plant a variety of flower seeds to add vibrant colors to your backyard, or grow your own vegetables and herbs to save on grocery expenses. Gardening tools and supplies can be found at affordable prices, making it a no-brainer for those who like to get their hands dirty on a budget.

6. Set Up Bird Feeders

Wake up to the sound of birds chirping out your window with a brand new bird feeder. To attract various bird species for enjoyable bird watching, use different types of feed and feeders throughout your yard. Not only do humans love watching birds, but your furry friends love their presence as well!

7. Add a Fountain

Adding a water feature doesn’t have to be an expensive project. There are plenty of DIY ideas to add a peaceful water effect, such as painting ceramic pots and attaching them to inexpensive water pumps.Fountains can also act as a bird bath for your bird feeder visitors to cool off in the hot Texas sun.

8. Set Up a Trellis

Adding a trellis is a budget-friendly way to enhance the appeal of your yard. Use one to support climbing plants to create a stunning vertical garden without the need for expensive landscaping. Wood and metal are affordable materials for a fun DIY project, or visit local flea markets or garage sales for a vintage piece.

9. Decorate and Paint Your Fence

Instead of installing an expensive new fence, refurbish your existing one. Repaint or re-stain your wooden fence, or take it a step further and paint an eye-catching mural. For those with a green thumb, add greenery with planters or trellises. Looking to brighten your outdoor space? Consider hanging outdoor string lights along your fence for nighttime appeal.

10. Set Up Furniture

Transform your yard into a comfortable and enjoyable space for relaxing and entertaining without breaking your budget. Enjoy the sunshine in outdoor lounge chairs or create an outdoor dining area with a picnic table and benches. Most outdoor furniture is made from affordable, durable materials like plastic or metal for an inexpensive expansion of your living space.

11. Add a Fire Pit

Enjoy those Beaumont summer nights with a relaxing fire pit. It’s often too warm to enjoy a big fire, but surrounding a small metal fire pit bowl with pavers or cinder blocks creates a beautiful outdoor addition without breaking the bank. For fun for the whole family, consider adding a table nearby for a s’mores station!

12. Add a Hammock

Make your backyard perfect for lounging by adding a hammock. Simply string the hammock around two trees for a comfy seating option. If you don’t have two nearby trees, many hammocks come with a stand, or get creative and build your own!

13. Address Broken Windows or Screens

Don’t let broken windows or screens take away from the beauty of your backyard. If you notice damage to your windows while renovating your outdoor living space, it’s time for a replacement. At Window World of Beaumont, we offer replacement windows in a variety of styles to match any home.
