You may be ready for summer, but is your backyard? It’s easy to update your outdoor space and bring it out of hibernation. Here are several ways to make your backyard an oasis. These tips will help you design a backyard paradise your friends and neighbors will want to visit!
Adding a miniature outdoor bar area is the perfect idea for anyone who entertains. Choose a custom-made bar or do it yourself. You can purchase a bar cart on casters and wheels which will allow you that ‘bar’ feeling without the need for plumbing. This type of bar will require very little maintenance. Add seating for your guests, coolers to keep drinks cool, and of course, some kitschy bottle openers. Hang them on the walls or attach them to the cart!
Fire pits, columns, or bowls
Many people think their backyards aren’t big enough or a fire pit, but a concrete fire bowl will fit any size backyard. Even though you’re getting ready for summer, you can still enjoy a fire pit. Gathering your guests, or your family, around the fire pit is the perfect way to relax. A fire pit, column, or bowl, will make any backyard seem cozy! Plus, there are a variety of fire pits to choose from: choose a basic fire bit, a rustic one, or even a more modern style. Fire pits even add value to your home!
If you have a bare fence or a blank wall space, plant flowers or vegetables that will grow vertically up your wall. These are great for backyards that are too small for a garden. Decorative walls not only look great, but they improve the quality of the air, reduce noise pollution, and produce vegetables for your kitchen!
These are just some of the ways you can spruce up your backyard this summer. No matter what you choose, know that an inviting backyard is a great place to spend summer evenings with friends and family. Light some candles, fire up the barbecue, and make it a party!
