Not only will improving your backyard add value to your home, but it can also affect your social life.
When you take the time to create a welcoming space for friends and family, you’re opening the door to endless opportunities for entertaining.
If you want to turn your home into a place where your friends can’t wait to hang out, read on for some great backyard ideas to help make it happen.
1. Backyard Ideas With Water
It’s a fact that water is a source of comfort for people all around the world. You can incorporate water into your backyard in several ways.
A rectangular pool is a bonus for keeping fit and cooling off. It’s also a key area for entertaining. Set up some seating, plant some trees and shrubs nearby and you’ve got your own outdoor paradise for leisure time.
If you don’t have space for a pool in your backyard, you can still have a fountain or a pond. A birdbath is a simple addition that can bring life and interest to your yard.
2. Fire it Up!
Fire pits are a fantastic addition to any backyard. They’re great for outdoor entertaining, romantic evenings under the stars, and they’re essential for making s’ mores.
Once you’ve had your fire pit installed, all you need is some comfy furniture and some good friends for the ultimate summertime leisure. Hook up some string lighting in trees nearby to create a festive — and fashionable — ambiance.
3. Garden Rooms
Creating intimate garden spaces for quiet reflection is a hot trend in today’s busy times. A flower-covered pergola with swing seating or hammocks is the perfect space for getting away from it all during your down-time.
Alternatively, you can create a quiet hideaway with some tall shrubs and comfortable seating.
4. Outdoor Kitchens
An outdoor kitchen can be as simple or elaborate as your budget allows. All you really need is a kitchen island, a barbeque grill, and some seating to get the party started.
Other nice-to-have additions include a pizza oven, lighting, sound systems, a refrigerator, and a bar. The best part about outdoor kitchens is that you can start small and add on as your needs change and budget allows.
5. Kid-Friendly Attractions
It’s important to consider the needs of children when entertaining too. Slides and jungle gyms are just the thing to keep them out of your hair and occupied while entertaining friends.
Why not add a small, shallow swimming pool for supervised splashing and playing on hot summer days?
Teens love their own space, so a cordoned off clubhouse area with their own seating and sound system, is sure to elevate you to the status of ”cool parents” in their eyes.
