Landscape renovations are a great way to improve the guest experience at your Airbnb or VRBO property. Not only do they enhance the visual appeal of your property, but they also provide guests with a more comfortable and relaxing outdoor space to enjoy during their stay. In this blog post, we'll go over some DIY landscape renovation ideas that Airbnb and VRBO hosts can use to upgrade their property and impress their guests.

  1. Create a patio or deck area: A patio or deck is a great way to provide guests with a comfortable and inviting outdoor space to relax in. If your property already has a patio or deck, consider adding new furniture or updating the existing furniture to create a more inviting space. If your property doesn't have a patio or deck, you can create one by laying down pavers or building a wood deck.

  2. Add outdoor lighting: Outdoor lighting is an essential element of any landscape renovation. Not only does it enhance the visual appeal of your property, but it also provides guests with a safer and more enjoyable outdoor experience at night. Consider installing solar-powered lights along walkways, around the patio or deck, and in the garden to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

  3. Plant a garden: A garden is a great way to add color and beauty to your property. You can choose from a variety of plants, including flowers, shrubs, and trees, to create a garden that suits the style of your property. Be sure to choose plants that are well-suited to your local climate, and consider installing a drip irrigation system to make it easy to keep your garden watered.

  4. Add a fire pit: A fire pit is a great way to provide guests with a cozy and inviting outdoor space to enjoy on cool evenings. You can choose from a variety of fire pit designs, including stone, brick, or metal, to create a fire pit that suits the style of your property. Be sure to follow all local fire safety codes when installing a fire pit.

  5. Install a hot tub or swimming pool: If your property has the space for it, installing a hot tub or swimming pool is a great way to provide guests with a luxury experience. A hot tub is a great addition to provide guests with a relaxing soak and swimming pool is great for summer rental. But be sure to consider any additional safety measures and liability insurance before installing a pool or hot tub on your property.
