With several weeks of quarantine behind us, we’re all running out of ways to stay entertained at home. So, why not try refreshing your backyard or patio DIY style? You can finally tackle those home improvement projects and keep yourself busy for as long as you like. Not to mention Earth Day’s 50th anniversary was recently celebrated, giving you and your family the perfect opportunity to appreciate nature with a beautiful outdoor space. Here we’re sharing three outdoor project ideas for your yard or patio to serve as creative inspiration.
1.Start your own garden
Whether you have a green thumb, or you’re a gardening rookie, there’s no better time than now to unplug from the daily stresses and get your hands a little dirty. Before you begin, you’ll need to decide what types of plants and herbs to grow. Perhaps some fresh basil and tomato for your summer salads or Florida perennials to add a pop of color to your yard. Then, order these online along with some fertilizer, soil, and pots. While the kids decorate the pots, parents can start planting the seedlings.
One of the great things about creating a garden is that you can elevate any kind of yard – big or small. A vibrant display of greens, pinks, and blues can bring a private patio to life, while a vast garden bed surrounded by furnishings is ideal for backyards. If you live in Campo Bello, one of Lennar’s Miami communities with single-family and twin homes, your oversized backyard will offer a lush backdrop for your new passion project. Plus, a chef-inspired kitchen will await indoors with stainless steel appliances – courtesy of Lennar’s Everything’s Included® package – so you can enjoy the fruits of your labor.
2. Bring your entertainment outdoors
Getting tired of your usual television set-up? Switching out the familiar walls for green scenery and blue skies may be just what you need. Grab some furniture from the underutilized rooms, bring out the party tables and chairs from storage, or order new pieces all together to create a welcoming lounge area outside. Next, make sure your space is equipped for fun! A few board games, a television, or even a projector are excellent incentives to get the entire family out of their rooms and enjoying some much-needed vitamin D.
For residents of AquaBella, a waterfront community of villas, townhomes and single-family homes in Hialeah, outdoor entertainment is easy with Lennar’s standard Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Home Designs. Unsurpassed connectivity extends to the patio or backyard, allowing families to come together and play games or watch movies at any time.
3. Create a Zen-inspired oasis
After all the lifestyle changes we’ve had to experience, an outdoor sanctuary, where you can relax and center yourself, sounds like the perfect escape. At Satori’s Executive Estates collection of lakefront homes in Miami Lakes, you can certainly get inspiration from the community amenities you’ve been missing. Reminisce about those relaxing days in the tranquil park and walking paths, with a meditation space of your own. Adorn your patio or yard using a few potted plants and a rug, add some string lights for ambiance, and, if you’re quite handy, build a homemade canopy to complete your private sanctuary.
Now, it’s your turn! Transform your yard or patio into a lovely outdoor space, where your family can create lifelong memories and enjoy the beauty of nature. Interested in one of the Lennar communities mentioned? Call us and we’ll guide you through our virtual home-buying experience.
