Summers are the perfect time to put your thinking cap on and dive in the world of intuitive DIY projects which increase the value of your home. There are many such projects which are affordable, easy to do and effective when done properly. Also, the spare time on the weekends can be utilized to do such projects. So if you have some free time lying around on the weekends, here are 7 DIY Summer Weekend Home Projects, which you can do easily as home improvements:

  • Build a Bench around a Tree: If you have many trees in your garden, then you need to install a wooden bench around any one of them. Wooden benches increase the beauty of your garden and become your favorite place in your house to read a book or newspaper.

  • Maintain Your Backyard for Playing Games: If you own a backyard, then it is the perfect space for you and your kids to play outdoor games. Games such as baseball, football and many others can be played if you maintain the backyard. Maintenance includes, mowing the grass, keeping the backyard trash-free and many other related tasks.

  • Create Welcoming Entrance: Having a strong wooden, brightly colored front door helps make your entrance welcoming. A small bench beside the door, a welcome door mat right in front of it and potted plants are all good ideas to increase the welcoming and inviting nature of your front entrance.

  • Plant Fruits and Vegetables: Now even your backyard can become your own little farm. All you need to do is to place Raised Garden Beds and plant fruits and vegetables in its soil. The best thing about Raised Garden Beds is that you don’t plant into the backyard instead you simply plant them in the Raised Garden Beds.

  • Create Your Own Fire Pit: The temperature in summers drop as the night gets closer and becomes perfect for bonfires. To have bonfires in your backyard, without the worry of damaging the beauty of it, Fire Pits are perfect. Artificial Fire Pits enable you and your family to have bonfires any time and not just in your backyard, but anywhere.

  • Place a Tree Swing: The perfect summer weekend project; Tree swings are great for children and adults alike. Easy to install, these swings are only made up of a rope and a seat, with a tree to hang it on. Tree swings are perfect to embrace the spring breezes.

  • Set up a Lemonade Stall: Want to have some fun with your kids? Set up a Lemonade stall. This easy Do-It-Yourself project can easily be done by making a wooden frame-style stall with a wide window. Place few chairs behind the window and sell some refreshing lemonade with your kids.
