When the sunshine breaks through the clouds and it’s time to start wearing shorts, that’s when we all start heading towards our backyards. It’s a perfect time for parties, barbecue’s and laying out in the sun and soaking up the great weather.
If your setup is only grass and a tree, then you might want to start thinking about some fun upgrades to really get the party popping. While having healthy grass is a great start, here are some of the perks you may want to add to your backyard to make it summer ready.
Nothing says summertime like a pool party. If it fits into your budget to get a full on inground pool, then, by all means, go for it. A hot tub, water fountain, grotto and high dive. Do it, all of it. For the rest of us, who may have more modest budgets, it may be worth looking into above ground swimming pools.
These can be less maintenance, more affordable, and just as satisfying. And hey, if this doesn’t fit into your budget either, there is nothing wrong with squeezing into an inflatable kiddie pool. Whatever it takes to keep cool on a hot day!
Installing a hammock in your outdoor space is a fun upgrade which encourages the ultimate relaxation. There are multiple types of hammocks which you can choose from depending on what kind of a space you have. Whether you’re looking for a chair hammock, one that suspends from trees, or even one that sits on a stand, a hammock is a must-have for summertime backyard chilling.
A firepit is a fun addition to a backyard party not only for ambiance but also for roasting wieners or even marshmallows.
If you aren’t looking to install inground fire pit, then opt for one that sits like a barbecue. All you need is some charcoal and you’re good to go!
A Patio Table
A table suited for outdoor dining is essential for hosting backyard barbecues. Having a nice meal al fresco is a luxury that everyone should take advantage of who has a backyard.
Although you can get fancy and go with a nice glass table or something which is upper end, you can always just get a plastic set or a picnic table. Some people opt to spend less since it will often be exposed to unfavorable weather conditions.
What good is a backyard without some tunes?? Installing an outdoor sound system may just be one of the best investments you ever make. Take a look at all of the options out there and decide what style and price fit into your particular budget.
