Decorating your backyard is an interesting experience. It’s not quite like what you have with other parts of your home, so it’s difficult to know where to begin.

If you’ve just moved into a new home, you’ll probably add it to the list of other improvements you want to make. Or you might have had your home for a while but just now decided to do something with it. Whatever your situation, some advice would go a long way.

So here you go. Here are 5 decoration ideas that will transform your yard.

1. Get some furniture

Furniture is a great place to start even if you have no idea what to do with your space. At the very least, you have something to sit on while you brainstorm!

But more seriously, a nice teak garden bench or some sofas can fill up the area and immediately give you ideas on what to do next.

2. Build a deck or patio

If you’re bringing in some furniture, might as well add a patio to the mix. A patio can provide cover from the sun during the day, and a nice cool shade at night to sit under while you have lovely moonlit conversations.

Let’s not forget the appeal associated with a patio. It looks gorgeous, modern, and can increase the resale value of your home. You can get even more out of the experience if you decide to build your patio DIY. Get some friends and neighbors to give you a hand and make an adventure out of it.

3. Throw in a fountain

Why? Well, when was the last time you saw a fountain in someone’s backyard? Not in a while, we’re willing to bet. That makes it unique.

Your fountain doesn’t have to be 10 feet high either. Try something simple and quirky, like a watering can fountain. It can add character to your space without costing a lot or taking up too much space. Plus, you can place it near your garden to kill two birds with a single stone.

4. Do you have room for a stone walkway?

If you have the room, a stone walkway can break up the monotony of your space and fill up large areas that would be otherwise grass.

Stone walkways are also great for adding some class to your backyard. You don’t have to live in a castle to feel like royalty. Use the walkway to connect various areas of your space with each other.

You can also plant flowers around the walkway for even more elegance. Use materials like mulch, bricks, or stones to line this walkway and you won’t have to spend a lot.

5. Paint your fence

Do you have an artistic side that you haven’t quite explored? Well now’s your chance. Head down to the nearest hardware store and buy a few cans of paint and some brushes because you’re going to decorate your fence!

Your imagination is the only limit here, and you can do everything from a mural to some cartoon characters for your kids. You can even attempt a replica of your neighbor’s house so it looks like you don’t have a fence!
