Summer is here! With that being said, now is the perfect time to enjoy your patio, porch or deck. These outdoor spaces are often used when it is comfortable to hang out outside during a long afternoon or evening. Is your yard summer ready? Make the most of your summer with these ideas to spice up your backyard.

1. Install a fence

If you want privacy around your home, using a HELOC to install a fence around your home is the way to go. Having a fence outside your home will not only ensure privacy, but it will also improve the security of your home by keeping children and pets safe to enjoy the outdoors. Building a fence may even improve the value of your home.

2. Update your deck or patio

With summertime here, you may spend more time outside in your backyard. Making sure that your steps and railings are secure for the summer is a perfect way to keep your home updated. You can even add color to these areas if you would like to spice things up.

3. Pool

Looking to cool off in the heat? Installing a pool in your backyard may be a great way to do so. Not only will being in the water keep you cool, but it will also be a great addition to your backyard, helping you enjoy your time spent at home.

4. Pergola

If you want to add extra shade to your patio or deck, you should consider adding a pergola to your deck or patio. You can also add curtains to your pergola for extra shade.

5. Fountain

Adding a fountain in your backyard is a great makeover idea! Putting the fountain around a garden or somewhere with great décor is a good way to show off your backyard makeover.
