Summer Home Improvement Ideas for Waukesha County Homes

Summer is officially here. Wisconsin is opening back up and we are ready to celebrate. What better way to attract guests than adorning your house with a beautiful garden room or new patio? Even simple things like plants and a footpath can spruce up a bland backyard. If you are looking to add some flavor to your backyard here are a few ideas to give you some inspiration.

Arches and Arborsarch and arbor back yard

An arbor is an excellent way to draw attention to some focal point or garden in your backyard. It can serve the purpose of being a gateway to your garden or entry to your backyard in a tasteful, elegant way. With a variety of sizes and shapes, an arbor makes a fine addition to any backyard or garden. Training vines and flowers over the arch can add some color and tie the garden together nicely as well as providing the added benefit of extra foliage for more privacy.

Fire Pitfire pit

Nothing brings people together outdoors like a well-built wood burning fire. Fire pits are easy to build and affordable pieces to enjoy with the family making s’mores or enjoying the warmth on a chilly evening. It is a good idea to be aware of any local building code restrictions and keep your pit a safe distance from structures and low hanging trees.





Gardenhome garden

Building a garden bed is simple and provides a great way to grow delicious fruits and vegetables. One of the more satisfying things about growing food is being able to watch its development and nurture it as it becomes ripe. Gardening is also a great way to spend time with the family.






Well, if you thought gardening was a good idea, then why not consider the eco-friendly process of fertilizing and improving your soil? Decomposing plant and food waste provides a mixture of rich plant nutrients and beneficial organisms that will improve the quality of your garden and put your biodegradable food waste back into the earth.

Adding lighting to your walkway or driveway can provide useful illumination that makes your house looking great in the evening hours. Not only useful for safety, installing some fixtures to your steps, trees, fences, or yard creates a beautiful effect that is amazing to look at.

Oh yeah? A fresh coat of paint is the way to brighten up your house too, of course! Make sure you are choosing a reasonable temperature day, somewhere around 70 degrees is ideal. Being aware of the forecast and the elements is as important a part of a painting project as the painting itself.
