Even though it is only April here in Chicago, it is time to start sprucing up the yard! I am a little hesitant to plant anything this early (due to our crazy Chicago weather it isn’t unheard of to have a snowstorm in May). However, I am more than happy to head to Big Lots for affordable items that make my patio area look 100% better. We have such a large area to work with, so I tried to work on several areas for the Big Lots! Patio Refresh For Under $100 Challenge. Here is what my yard looked like before I started on this project:
I know, my yard is pretty sad. That’s why I was excited to check out what Big Lots had to offer to help spruce up the yard. Did you know that Big Lots has a wide range of high-quality, brand-name items for your home including furniture and mattresses, seasonal and patio, home décor, grocery, and consumables? I had no idea (and may have purchased a Diet Coke heading out the door). Now, I didn’t have a big budget to turn my outdoor space into a backyard oasis. However, that wasn’t an issue at all! I got all of this for less than $100!
We got so many awesome items that we could use to make our yard more fun! They really had everything from patio furniture to gazebos to fun items. The first thing I set up was the solar ground lights. We have a problem at night with people not realizing where the concrete ends and where the grass starts. These lights should help. (Plus, I wanted to show you how well they actually work! I was impressed!)
I also decided to spruce up where we grow strawberries with some pinwheels.
I saved the best for last. We collect gnomes here, so we created a little gnome garden for all of us to enjoy. I think the kids and I had the most fun putting this together!
