This spring, it’s time to start planning for that trip to the outdoor DIY haven. After all, we all know how tempting it is to spend our free time at home rather than at the office. By putting together one or more DIY projects, you can encourage your children to get outside and do something productive during those long, miserable weeks. Here are 12 outdoor DIY jobs to consider this spring.

A Children’s sandbox: Kids love playing in the sand, digging in the dirt, and making up silly jokes. A children’s sandbox is the ideal project for parents to undertake with their kids. This is also a great opportunity for parents to teach kids about responsibility. You can design your own play area or purchase a prefabricated variety from a garden supply store. Make sure that you plan both the play area and the location for your sand pit ahead of time so that you can prepare it before the spring.



Backyard BBQ: Nothing tastes better than the taste of grilled, fresh-from-the-spa food on a warm summer day. A simple, low-cost project to improve your back yard’s functionality and curb appeal is to build a barbecue pit (or pea gravel fire pit) in your front yard. Kids love outdoor kitchens and a BBQ grill is the ideal, low-cost project to help teach them about kitchen safety.

Back Yard Garden: When working in late winter through early spring, a simple diy outdoor project that helps improve the look of your yard is to plant bright, colorful flowers around your front yard. Use flowers that can withstand colder temperatures to offset the cold weather. This is an easy project that will not only improve your yard but also increase the curb appeal of your home.

Patio: Do you have a beautiful, sunny patio? Perhaps you’ve even considered selling some of your decorative furnishings there. A beautiful patio is easy to create with a few simple DIY outdoor projects, such as adding a patio umbrella to your existing patio, building a raised patio to include a table, benches, or even a children’s play area (such as a butterfly house). With a little planning and the purchase of materials, you can create a charming outdoor living space that is functional and attractive at the same time. When planning your outdoor patio make sure that you keep your design plan in mind not only for the patio itself, but for the entire outdoor decor of your home.

Outdoor Dining: Are you tired of eating outdoor? Consider building a small outdoor dining area in your yard. These projects are easy to do and only require a few supplies. You could use a small table for folding out chairs, build a small outdoor dining table out of a table cloth, and then paint a doormat into the middle of the table.

Planters and Potted Plants: Creating planters and potted plants are also great outdoor DIY projects that you can do yourself. While these projects will be cheaper and take a little more time than outdoor furniture, they will also be rewarding because you can hand pick the flowers and plants that you want to use. DIY outdoor diy projects don’t need to be limited to flowers and plants. If you enjoy planting your own garden, you could build an outdoor shed out of cedar or other sturdy material and then place some outdoor cushions on the shed to make a lovely seating area. The cushions would be especially nice on a hot day.

While these are just three of many possible outdoor DIY projects that you could work on, these are three of the most popular. Whether you plan on building a patio, a gazebo, or a shed, it is always fun to get ready for the weather and do some DIY outdoor projects around the house. In fact, many people look forward to spring and fall when they can get ready for their DIY outdoor projects and start working on their projects. Get ready for some beautiful flowers this year!
