5 Affordable Outdoor Renovations to Add Lasting Value

The thought of an outdoor remodel can sound daunting, but it doesn't have to be major to make a big impact on your home’s value and the way you enjoy your space. We put together a quick list of ways to dramatically improve outdoor spaces that won’t break the bank.

1. Walkways

If you’re looking to add curb appeal and increase the value to your home, paving stone walkways are an easy addition that makes your home feel warm and inviting without tackling a major outdoor remodel. Whether it’s a meandering stone path through your lawn or a paving stone entryway with a more modern look, it’s a simple upgrade that has maximum wow factor.

2. Fire pits

Recently, System Pavers surveyed homeowners for our Outdoor Living Trends Index and discovered fire pits were at the top of many peoples’ wish lists. That didn’t surprise us! Fire pits are an affordable backyard add-on that can significantly expand the way friends and family enjoy your yard. Roasting smores around the fire while creating more ways to connect with loved ones makes a fire pit a priceless addition to any outdoor space.

3. Outdoor Lighting

Another eye-catching way to give your space a luxurious feel without spending an exorbitant amount is to install outdoor lighting. By illuminating your space after dark, you’ll add ambiance and increase security while creating a cozy way to enjoy your outdoors with loved ones long after the sun sets.

4. Artificial Turf

For homeowners hoping to reduce lawn maintenance costs, consider switching to artificial turf. Over time you’ll save a bundle by reducing water usage, as well as no longer needing to apply expensive and potentially toxic pesticides, or fertilizers. Plus, you can make a little money back by selling that lawn mower you’ll never need again!

5. Mulch

Never underestimate the value having a well-maintained landscaping can add to your house. Fresh mulch can make a big impact while costing very little. In fact, this may be the easiest upgrade you can make to your outdoors. By laying down fresh mulch, pulling weeds, and tidying up your flower beds, you’ll instantly increase curb appeal while creating a home you’ll love coming home to, day after day.
