If you read many magazines or watch TV you probably see great backyards all the time. It can make you envious if your own backyard is less than desirable. Thankfully, there are ways to do backyard makeovers to take your yard from dull to beautiful.
The first thing you need to do is assess your yard. If there is anything unsightly like discarded items that you don’t use anymore it’s time to get rid of them. Having things that aren’t necessary in your yard can make it look cluttered.
Once you’ve gotten rid of the undesirables you can start to plan your yard makeover. If you know of a yard you’d love to take ideas from, take a look and start writing them down. It doesn’t matter if this ideal yard is in your own neighborhood or in print somewhere.
Now, you certainly don’t want your makeover to just be a complete copy of that backyard. You will need to find ways to put your own spin on it. For example, if you enjoy having friends over you will want to have a barbecue area.
