Who doesn’t love to lay on the grass in the park? It sucks when you have to pack up and go home to your concrete jungle (where ever that may be). Well, we are going to change that right now by showing you how easy it is to make your own little "park" in your backyard. If you’re still looking for your home decor style then this might be a good place to start. The project isn’t as farfetched as it sounds, and you do not have to break up your concrete or anything like that; we’re going to build a lawn bed from the floor up! Guys, this residential home design diy is for homeowners only, don’t go to your apt building and do anything reckless now! (smile)
Okie dokie, so we’re going to start by building the base for the lawn bed and for that you will need some strong pieces of pine lumber to make a frame (like a futon base), next we’re going to build a headboard for our lawn bed, except it’s going to be a planter’s box (well because the idea is for outdoor home decor). When this part is completed, move it to the head of the bed and we can now begin by building the frame (box) where the soil and grass will be housed. Your summer home design is starting to look pretty decent huh? We’re not done yet! When you have finished the top frame, dress up the headboard with some decorative wood cladding, or paint it up to your liking; this part is all you!
Great now on to the next phase of our grass bed home decor project. I got some geo fabric to lay in the cavity of the frame (it prevents the soil from washing away and protects the frame from rot) and what I am going to do is pour the soil out and using a broom I am just evenly spreading the soil to every corner of the frame. A good tip to take with you for these types of projects that involves soil, is that you don’t want the soil to retain air (it’s going to look fluffy-ish) because then your turf is going to become dry; so walk on the soil and press down so you can compact the soil together firmly and avoid that mishap altogether. It’s time to mix together your water crystals and combine them into the soil (because the grass bed is high off of the ground, you want as much moisture retained as possible). Next, add some lawn fertilizer of your choice and lay down the sectioned lawn grass. Using some shears, trim the edges and the top to your desired texture and height. For the first two months water frequently, after that, you can minimize the watering to twice a week. Your grass bed home design look is finished with some throw pillows and your decorative plants in the planter’s box. Congratulations! You can now picnic at will or conjure up some date night home ideas for your significant other!
