3 Projects to Wake Up Your Backyard This Spring

Spring has arrived in Indiana and homeowners across the state are starting to think about different landscaping projects they want to accomplish this year. Because your home’s exterior is the first impression of your style, accenting your property with stylish elements can make your guests feel more welcome. At Unit Step, we love to create beautiful, precast concrete products that will turn your backyard into a beautiful place to relax. Read on for three projects that will wake up your backyard this spring.

Concrete Landscaping Elements

Add a Backyard Fence

Adding a backyard fence to your property is a great way to enjoy your space in privacy and comfort. It creates your own private sanctuary to easily and safely contain backyard fun. Whether you’re hosting a backyard barbecue, a children’s birthday party, or letting your pets play, a backyard fence provides a barrier from dangers like passing cars or unwanted visitors. Additionally, adding a fence to your backyard can add value to your home, making it a great investment for your future.

Add a Concrete Table or Bench

No outdoor living space would be complete without places to sit down, and while many homeowners choose patio furniture, using concrete is a great alternative. Whether you choose a concrete table on your patio or a garden bench in the landscaping, you will enjoy a beautiful piece that is sturdy, easy to clean, and virtually impervious to the elements. Plus, because precast concrete is poured into molds, there is no end to the different styles and designs to choose from.

Add Interesting Plants

Once you’ve established privacy and comfort, give your guests something interesting to look at by planting new plants. Make sure to choose plants that are compatible with the soil where you live and visit local nurseries for good recommendations. Also, take note of factors such as the amount of light that certain plants will thrive in, so they won’t die shortly after they’re planted and thereby waste your time and money. We love brightly colored plants that complement the exterior of the home.
