Summer is finally on its way, so don’t miss your chance to make your backyard the perfect spot for get-togethers, social events and some much needed lounge time! Here we look at some top backyard features you can start planning now, just in time to get ready for the summer.
Swing-set, slide, sandbox, and more – adding a playground to your backyard will provide hours of fun for the whole family! You can purchase already assembled sets or get creative and start a DIY project and build a customized system. The options are endless.
Create a welcoming area for guests and family to converse and dine in by purchasing a patio dining set. There are many models, shapes and sizes to choose from so you can find the perfect fit for your backyard area.
Don’t forget to add some comfortable and stylish seating. Wicker chairs with big and bright colourful cushions can quickly add some elegance and flair. There are also lots of durable and stylish materials to choose from, such as metal, wood and plastic options to suit your individual style.
An umbrella, paired with a lounge chair and side table make the perfect spot for lounging during those glorious summer days. You can make the set up cozy and comfortable, where you can enjoy reading a book, drinking a fancy cocktail with friends, or simply taking a well needed nap in the sun. For an extra bit of zen, try decorating the area with potted plants and flowers.
Nothing says summer like a sizzling BBQ. You can easily section off an area of your backyard or patio deck for a fully functional BBQ station. For convenience, add a table for prepping, a storage container or shelf for all your utensils, and if the area permits, a bar fridge for the condiments and cold beverages.
Your backyard is not complete without a few pieces of sports equipment that can easily be assembled when you have company over. By simply purchasing a volleyball set, bocce ball kit or even a horseshoe set, you can be ready for an exciting games day with some close friends and family.
