Make the dream a reality with a custom DIY fire pit. A fire feature makes a wonderful addition to your outdoor living area and can provide warmth and accent lighting during those chilly evenings. While there are a variety of pre-made selections available, do-it-yourself projects are a crafty, inexpensive alternative for anyone willing to get their hands dirty.
Consider installing artificial turf with stone. This popular technique is created by incorporating tile quadrants throughout the lawn. This look is great for a side yard, backyard, or can be used to create a natural looking walkway. The pattern can be laid on the diagonal as well to create energy and interest. This look can be created with concrete pavers, travertine pavers, flagstone or even simple concrete.
Dream backyards don't come together all at once. It takes years of gardening and landscaping to create an oasis right at home. And much like the journey of decorating inside your walls, you usually tackle it in small steps. So while you might have your idea on a professionally-installed patio one day, for now, you can give your yard a little love with a simple DIY garden path.
