Best of all, most of these ideas are drought tolerant, so you can save money and the environment at the same time! http://www.buzzfeed.com/peggy/brilliant-outdoor-ideas?sub=2160688_1106212#.vw1jeGDgr3
My favorites are the outdoor chandelier to hang over a picnic table or outdoor seating area, the rainbow crystals that make your fire burn blue and green, and the rope lighting around the edge of the garden. With a few simple, DIY projects, you can turn your backyard into an oasis where any buyer will love to spend time with family and friends. And most of all, you and your family will have a great time getting down and dirty doing some of these fun projects!
