5 Easy Home Projects for the Summer
Summer is a great time to start and finish easy home projects. From gardening to organizing, there are many home projects that you can tackle without the added pressure of trying to finish over the weekend. Here are 5 easy home project ideas that will transform your home into a clean and efficient environment.
Start a Garden.
Summertime gardening can be a relaxing and rewarding project, especially when it’s time to harvest your veggies and grill them during your next BBQ. Build a raised garden bed with rot-resistant lumber. Customize the height of your garden bed, so it’s easy to reach without hurting your back or roughing up your knees.
Prep your outdoor kitchen.
Get ready for your outdoor dinner and BBQs by prepping your grilling station and bar cart. Stock your grilling station with your go-to grilling tools, mini fire extinguisher, and a small garbage area. You can turn a folding potting bench into a handy food prep station and storage area for your outdoor dining essentials.
Upgrade your outdoor space.
If you haven’t touched your outdoor space since last summer, now is the perfect time to revamp your outdoor dining and lounging area. Replacing old toss pillow covers or seat covers and adding new accessories like hurricane lanterns, decorative garden stools, and a new outdoor rug can transform your outdoor space. Hang twinkling lights along the perimeter of your patio, backyard, or balcony and watch your outdoor area illuminate under the summer evening sky.
Build a compost bin.
Calling all gardeners! Nothing feeds your plants better than compost. Constructing even a small compost bin can make the biggest difference, it helps reduce wastes and improves your soils’ health.
Declutter your home.
Decluttering your home can be a daunting task, but if you tackle it room by room, you’ll have a project that will keep you steadily busy until the end of summer. When you declutter, create 3 piles, resell, donate, and a throw away pile. These piles will help you decide what you want to do with each piece.
