A simple garden in the backyard might be enough for most, but if you’re looking for more than a wide, open space for plants beside your house — then these projects might just be the right ones for you.
A Multi-Purpose Granny Flat
A backyard cabin or granny flat can serve whatever purpose you need at the time of construction. It’s a stand-alone shed that can serve as an office, a hobby room, a music room or your generic lodging.
Backyard cabin sheds are a worthwhile investment, and an extra room away from the house can free up space or provide some much-needed privacy (and quiet) away from the kids.
A Productive Greenhouse
If you have a knack for gardening — a greenhouse is definitely a good project. What starts out as a simple hobby could develop into a successful and profitable business. With a little bit of market research, you could find out which crops have high demands and which crops sell for a high price.
Even if you aren’t ready to go the commercial route, a greenhouse can provide you with fresh high-quality produce all-year-round. You won’t need to wonder about what chemicals or pesticides go into your food, plus — you could get a sense of fulfilment from growing your own food.
A Swimming Pool
Your kids will love the thought of having their own swimming pool. They’ll be having friends over more often and you won’t need to wonder where they are and what they’re doing. Swimming is also one of the best exercises at any age. Consider it an investment in your family’s health.
Instead of having idle unproductive space — it’s a good idea to maximise your property’s potential. Whether it’s a granny flat, a greenhouse or a swimming pool — a place that you can use, enjoy, and even profit from is better than an otherwise plain and simple backyard.
