Doing a much-needed makeover for your backyard or garden doesn’t have to be expensive or take a huge chunk of your time. In fact, these projects cost next to nothing and are easy to finish in just a few hours or within the day.

Wooden bench

Hanging out outside is great, especially when the sun is shining, and the weather is just perfect. Of course, you’ll need a place to sit and relax with your friends and family. So, a wooden bench is a good project you can start with.

It’s easy to get done in just a few hours. All you need is a long, flat piece of wood and a couple of more pieces to serve as legs. Take measurements, grab a few nails and hammer those bad boys down and there you go, you have a nice place to sit with your mates.

Rope swing

If you have kids, then you can’t go wrong with a classic rope swing. If you have a strong and stable place to set up a swing, like an oak tree, then all you need is to buy the right type of rope and a seat fashioned from some spare wood or an old tire to get a swing or two set up.

Pest repellent

You can’t really enjoy hanging out in your backyard or garden if pesky insects bothering you. The good news is you can make your very own mosquito repellent. If you have a used wine bottle lying somewhere, you can use that as a part of your DIY mosquito repelling torch to keep those pests away. Similarly, there might be other pests such as rodents and termites that can make it difficult for you to spend time in your backyard. One of the best ways to do that could be by hiring Pest Control Experts who can remove the said pests from your property. That way, you can fully enjoy hanging out in your garden.


Another classic outdoor project is a good old-fashioned tree house. It doesn’t have to be perched high up in the tree. You just need to look for a nice spot in your garden or backyard, set up the base and frame.

Make sure the floor, walls and roof are secure, and give areas exposed to the elements a good lick of paint. If you’re afraid of heights, this might not be the best DIY project for you, but you can always head to https://www.myhousepainter.com/painters/arkansas/ or a similar site to get a professional painter to do the job. It might not be true to the spirit of DIY, but at least you tried, and that’s the main thing. Once you’re finished, your kids are going to be stoked to have their very own place to hang out.

Backyard projector screen

Do you love watching home movies? Then why don’t you build your very own DIY outdoor theatre? This projector screen is very inexpensive and can be done in no time at all. You can binge all your home movies once this bad boy is set up in your garden or backyard. Now, if you have a pre-fab backyard studio shed, having a projector can be amazing for some of your work as well.

These are just some of the simple but fun DIY projects you can do outdoors. If you have some creative ideas, we’d love to hear from you. Have you taken on any cool DIY projects to spruce up your outdoor space? If so, how did it go? Please share your experience by leaving us a comment.
