Stephen and Amy bought their first home together in Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood in 2013. Their home is adorable inside and out, with many of the elements crafted by the couple.

One of The Best Ways to Improve Your Home is Do-able in a Day

It’s shockingly difficult to add value to your home these days. Only a few projects have a return of over 100 percent, which means that, no matter what improvements you make, chances are good you won’t get all of your money back when you sell your house. This shouldn’t discourage you from making changes however, as there are other great reasons to upgrade and improve certain features — starting with this one, which can be completed in less than one day.

Rejoice! I Finally Found a Chemical-Free Way to Combat Weeds

I’ve reached a new state of being, and I owe it all to my front yard. I call it “peak curmudgeon.” Because there’s one soul-sucking Sisyphean home task that drains me like no other — the endless loop of pulling weeds. I try to keep on top of them, but no matter how often I deal, they are there waiting for me again the following week. Weeds leave me muttering and cursing mess. I recently finished a backyard makeover, and at the very tippy top of my must-have list was a weed-free existence. You feel me, I know you do.

(Image credit: Lonny )

A fire pit tops the list of “things we’d definitely want in a backyard, if we had the space.” They’re fun in the summer, but help extend the outdoor season into the cooler months. We’d say that they’d also make a great focal point…but so many on the market put function over fashion.

(Image credit: Molly Wood Garden Design )

While you could head out to any bar with a nice outdoor space, you usually have to time your visits to avoid a throng of like-minded people. (For introverts, this possibility takes all the fun out of this activity.) If you’re lucky enough to have a nice backyard space at your disposal, having your own outdoor bar is a great luxury — especially if you entertain frequently.

Take Another Look at Gravel: Chic Ways to Use It Outdoors — Take Another Look at…Gravel: Chic Ways to Use

(Image credit: Giannetti Home )

A manicured lawn is a beautiful sight to behold, but it’s a feature that isn’t without its own problems. There’s the cost and time investment for maintenance, plus the staggering amount of water needed to keep a lawn looking fresh in the summer. And really, does anyone truly love mowing the lawn? (Aside from my father, who likely enjoyed the peace of a weedwacker or lawnmower compared to the general chaos produced by me and my brother growing up.)
