Not everyone is lucky enough to have a backyard. Those who have one may not realize the infinite number of ways available to transform it into a nature-inspired retreat. Maybe you seek a peaceful, quiet sanctuary from the constant hustle of everyday life. Or, you may prefer a hangout for get-togethers with family and friends. Whatever your backyard goal is, creating a special, personalized outdoor space is worth the effort and the time you put into it.


1. Planning a backyard revamp

Before you start buying cool stuff to decorate your backyard space, it’s important to first develop a plan. Deciding how much or how little work it will take depends on how much you want to invest in your project. Then, determine whether this is a long-term or seasonal renovation. People who own their homes may choose permanent changes, such as adding paths, laying concrete patios, or planting trees. Renters may seek objects that are simple to disassemble and transport. Patio furniture, string lights, or vertical wall gardens are easy to pack up and take with you.
