You don’t need a ton of time or even effort to upgrade your outdoor space. In fact, in an hour or less you could complete a project that will further turn your backyard or balcony into an impressive oasis. Here are 10+ such projects to consider.
10. Get Rid of the Pests
Nothing kills an outdoor party like insect bites. Make your own citronella candles or turn an empty wine bottle into an attractive mosquito repelling torch. The simplest and quickest bug deterring “project,” though? Plug in a fan.
9. Create a Vertical, Space-Saving Garden
Even the smallest of spaces can sport great greenery, as long as you have some sun exposure. This canvas shoe organizer, for example, instantly becomes an herb garden once you hang it up and add some herbs. Take it to the next level by adding a hydroponic watering system. Or you could create a vertical garden with a wooden pallet too, and perhaps fill it with mosquito-repelling plants for a two-in-one project.
