Welcome back to part two of our Elite Tree Experts blog series. Last time, we began looking at some crafty, creative, and thrifty ideas for you to consider as you begin planning out your backyard landscaping projects for the summer. While it’s incredibly easy to go bonkers buying all the latest yard decorations at your local home improvement store, there are so many ways to create a stunning backyard sanctuary with objects you already have. As your trusted Terre Haute tree service team, we are all about eco-friendliness and reusing items when you can to help keep the earth cleaner and greener and all its trees healthier and happier. That is why today we will share four more tips with you that you can use to create a peaceful backyard setting that fits your style and needs.

Mason Jar Lights

Mason jars are incredibly versatile, ideal for all sorts of uses for landscaping. Use these or old sauce jars to light up your backyard with pathway lights, hanging lights, and lanterns. These make excellent candle holders for patio tables, but for the pathway lights and hangers, opt instead for solar cells or LED tealight candles that won’t catch fire when tipped over. These will create a stunning glow that lines your walkways or pleasant twinkle when hung from your trees.

Use Old Throw Pillows

If you have a stockpile of old throw pillows that you just can’t seem to part with, but which clash with all of your updated interior furniture, use them as decorative throw pillows for your patio furniture. Throw pillows can accentuate patio furniture by giving it cozier look and providing you, your family, and your guests with a little extra cushioning while sitting outdoors.

Hang Old Curtains for Privacy

If you’d like a little extra privacy from your nosey neighbor Patricia, who always seems to be peeking at you from her porch, grab some old curtains and hang them around your patio or gazebo. These can add a decorative touch that provides privacy and shade.

Tree Stump Table

You know that tree stump that has been an eyesore in your backyard since you’ve had the tree removed? Our Elite Tree Experts team can remove your tree stump and if you’d like to keep it, you can transform that old stump into a functional and stylish outdoor table for your patio!
