Daylight Savings Time and warm Spring weather make the perfect conditions for spending that much awaited time outdoors. Longer days also mean we’ll have more daylight to take in the fresh air. If you’ve been putting off any DIY or home improvement projects, now’s the time to get started. We think Leo Tolstoy said it best: “Spring is the time of plans and projects.” Let’s discover a few outdoor projects you can work on as the weather warms up and the days get longer.

Outdoor Planter and Garden Boxes

Plants, flowers, and shrubbery can all help take your outdoor area to the next level. Get creative and mix and match plants to liven up any area, in your front or back yard. If you’re feeling crafty, try your hand at building an outdoor planter or garden box. Follow any instructions for an outdoor-safe box, fill it with dirt, and add in your favorite plants from a local nursery. You’ll have your home looking refreshed for Spring in no time!

Craft a Simple Outdoor Bench 

A simple and minimal bench may be just the thing you need to elevate your garden. Not only does this bench have a functional purpose, but the vintage wood gives it a charming look which will add character to your outdoor area. Check out one of previous blog posts for detailed instructions on how to craft this outdoor bench. 

Create Your Own Firepit 

While sunny spring and summer days are often nice and warm, it can get pretty chilly once the sun goes down. A firepit is the perfect solution to stay comfortable on these cooler evenings. This specific rustic firepit project is inexpensive and needs only 3 supplies to get started. Once you’ve got your firepit finished, cozy up with friends and family to make some memorable evenings. 

DIY Hose Holder

We can all agree that having a water hose splayed all over your yard can look messy and cluttered. If you’re tired of throwing your hose into an unorganized pile or constantly tripping over it in the yard, try building a wooden hose holder. This easy design not only looks clean and attractive, but it also saves you money. The project takes only five steps and doesn’t require too many supplies. To see the full step-by-step instructions, check out the full project here.

Working on projects outdoors is a great way to spend some time outside while also being productive. Many of these projects require wood which you can find on our website in a variety of different reclaimed wood kits. To see all of our wood options, head to our website
