Brilliant Bocce

This is a simple DIY project that is great for homeowners to do on a weekend and it won’t break the bank. The dimensions of an actual bocce court vary so you can make it fit any backyard. Finish this project by lunch and be playing the “Italian game of leisure” in your backyard that afternoon.

Organize an Outdoor Movie Night

There are a couple of ways you can go about this. You can paint a screen on the side of a garage or the house, or buy a screen made for the outdoors. Get the involved kids setting up chairs and cleaning the yard. Then once you’re done, all you have to do is wait until dusk, get the projector, the popcorn and invite the neighbors.

Day Bed Daze

This is a project best saved for the serious DIYer or a professional. Nothing ruins a romantic mood like a poorly installed day bed that comes crashing down mid swing. If installed correctly it can turn a porch or pergola into a romantic get away or fun nap area for the kids.

Backyard Beach

Bringing the beach to your backyard is easy project to pull off in a weekend. Get the beach sand delivered and start creating your very own oasis by adding sea grasses and stacking stones in the middle of the area for your fire pit. Get the s’mores and beach chairs then sit back and enjoy.
