Looking for a way to add some fun to the winter season? You can take advantage of your backyard! There are many fun and unique ways to make your backyard a winter wonderland so you can enjoy a little fresh air out in the snow. Here are some ideas to consider.
A few lights can instantly transform any dark and dull space. So start there! If you haven’t already decorated your backyard for the winter, get creative with some lights. It can be a winter theme to brighten up the long and dark evenings with some cheerful colours. Add lights to your trees and hedges, or add spotlights around the garden and pathways to create a glowing, enchanting effect.
Build an Ice Rink
Once the temperature really begins to dip, it’s the perfect time to get out and create your own ice rink in the yard. It’s a classic Canadian tradition for many homeowners, and it’s an excellent way to get the kids outside to have a bit of fun. The best part is it’s relatively easy to do. All you really need is icy cold temperatures, a good size yard, some time, and a bit of patience. There are plenty of tutorials online that will show you how to make it step by step.
Cozy Up by the Fire Pit
As Canadians, we don’t easily shy away from the cold. And with an extra bit of warmth, you can enjoy any winter evening with your family or friends. If it’s permitted in your area, install a cozy fire pit. All you need is enough space to keep it away from any vegetation or trees. Make sure you are abiding by any bi-law regulations. Then grab a few thick, warm blankets, hot chocolate, and some good music for a fun and relaxing evening.
Winterize Your Patio
You can make your patio warm and inviting too by winterizing it with a few simple additions. For example, you could add a canopy to provide more shelter from the weather. Also, adding an outdoor heater will let you stay toasty while up on the patio. Add some lanterns with candles and some potted evergreens with a few string lights to finish it off so you can have another cozy option for embracing the darker evenings outside.
