The yard in our rental home gets tons of both shade and sun, and has a large bricked patio. But there’s nothing covering the patio, and it looks like an above-ground pool or trampoline has killed a large portion of the grass.
We’re looking forward to having friends and family over this summer, as we finally have space to entertain, but I want to spruce up the backyard a bit before we have people over.
Since we’re renting the house, I want to make it more homey, but I don’t want to pour money into a yard that we’ll eventually leave. I’m not opposed to doing the basics, like raking, weeding, and fertilizing (and plan on doing all of the above once we move in). Any other suggestions on how to make this yard a bit more family-friendly, while also being renter- and budget-friendly? -dreemwhrld
Of course our first suggestion: it’s carbana time! Set it up over the ruined grass and enjoy an instant party place that can come with you when you move.
What ideas do you Homies have for backyard make-overs that are budget-friendly, renter-friendly, and party-ready?
