26 Cheap & easy ways to upgrade your outdoor space when the weather starts to warm up!

When the weather starts to turn nice, there’s nothing more that I love to do than to spruce up my outdoor space.

My family spends a lot of time outside playing sports, gardening and gathering on our huge wrap around Victorian porch.

At every home we’ve owned, I’ve always tried to make our outdoor areas appealing and inviting. Whether it be from decorating with porch signs, adding wreaths to my front door or building raised planter boxes and beds that can be used all throughout my yard.
