The weather here in SC is finally starting to heat up and spring and summer are right around the corner! With the warmer weather, my husband and I will inevitably spend more time outdoors.

So what are some ways that you can spruce up your outdoor living space to make it ready for entertaining this spring and summer?

Refinish old wooden decks

If the boards are still solid and not rotting away, refinish the old wooden boards instead of building a brand new deck. It will make a dramatic difference in the look and feel of your outdoor living area!

Stain concrete patios

Stain those worn and dirty concrete patios to freshen up your outdoor living space! Check out Home Depot or Lowe’s for a ton of concrete stain + sealer options.

Fresh flowers + colorful flower pots

I love colorful pots in all shapes and sizes! This is a fun and inexpensive way to liven up your outdoor spaces. Check out thrift stores or Habitat for Humanity ReStores for some cost-saving options.

Outdoor living furniture + rugs

Replace that old, hand-me-down furniture set with new outdoor living furniture or replace your old cushions for a more affordable option! For backyard rugs, check out Wayfair or Overstock.

Privacy fences

Can you see your neighbor’s house from yours? Consider installing a privacy fence. There are several options to choose from including wood, aluminum, vinyl, and more. Check out Mark Bondy with SafeHome Fencing for a free quote.

New grass

Does your yard have a ton of weeds in it? Consider planting new grass so you can play that perfect game of cornhole this summer without having to be embarrassed by all of the weeds. Check out this article to get started.
