When the first signs of spring arrive, the first rays of sun falling to cast away snow, we immediately start spending more time outdoors, preparing the garden, the flower beds, cleaning up the mess left by the winter season. Our garden or backyard is our retreat, our oasis away from the hustle and fuss of the busy urban lives. It is here were we spend time as a family, we teach our little ones how to play childhood games, we entertain friends and form memorable moments we will cherish forever.

In small corners or small yards the issue of sitting space appears and most of the time garden furniture with a pleasant aesthetic appeal costs a fortune. Luckily, the idea of tree seats has appeared, a form of preserving your greenery and building around it, creating functional sitting areas. Let’s take a glance at a few tree seats ideas and choose your next diy project today.
