The Value of Your Backyard

Back Yard


Spending time in our backyard is probably something we should all do more of. There is something about staying home and making our backyard a family living space that just feels right. Whether it’s mowing the grass, gardening, watering flowers, or playing with the kids, these things can bring our families together in a beautiful way. The question is, how do we create routines that support this quality of life?

Here are some ideas:

  1. Know where your tools are – it will seem more daunting to begin a task if you have to spend time finding everything first. Create a space for each item in your shed or garage.
  2. Do your projects in small, comfortable steps. Be consistent and over time the results will be amazing!
  3. Do one small thing each week to make someone’s life a little better.
