As we roll into the New Year, many of us are thinking about New Year’s resolutions. Maybe you want to lose some pounds from the holiday season, or want to finally meet a personal goal you’ve been putting off all year. However, not everyone has their New Year’s resolution yet, and may be looking for ideas to get motivated for 2023.
One of the best things you can aspire to do in the New Year is to improve your home. It is the center of your life and can be a place of tranquility – or stress – depending on the way you utilize it. By making your house a place you want to stay, you can improve your quality of life in ways you never imagined.
If you want to make your home a place you’ll love in 2023, start with the backyard. This is an easy place to transform with a few simple touches and doesn’t demand the instant transformation that the interior of the house does. Try these three backyard resolutions to make your outdoor space the coolest place to hang out in 2023:
Add a swing.
A porch swing or freestanding backyard swing can create the perfect place to enjoy morning coffee or an evening bonfire in the wintertime. A modest porch swing can be found between $200 and $500 and makes it that much more enjoyable for you to spend time outside. You can create a more romantic atmosphere by adding a coffee table and some cafe nights to enjoy an at-home date night on the porch.
Revamp your landscaping.
Many homeowners underestimate the power of beauty in their front or backyards. While landscaping may seem like an expensive and time-consuming undertaking if you’re not interested in gardening, it can do wonders for your home appeal and your likelihood of spending time outside. Add some flowers or hardscape elements to support natural growth, and watch your backyard blossom in the springtime.
Build a backyard fence.
If you don’t have adequate fencing for your backyard, this should be first on your list for both safety and security reasons. If you have children or pets at home, they need fencing to keep them out of roads or other properties in your neighborhood. And, even if you don’t have little ones to protect, a fence keeps animals and intruders from coming onto your property uninvited.
