Consider yourself very lucky if you live in a house with a backyard. You get to relax and enjoy being outdoors while also being a few steps away from getting indoors when needed. Once spring enters, you will have several months to make use of your backyard for outdoor fun and activities. Here are some ways to turn your backyard into a wonderland yard!
Start your backyard activities with a bounce on a trampoline. They are a super fun way to exercise and develop the coordination skills of younger ones. If you have a pool, you can use a trampoline as a diving board. Trampolines do carry some element of risk for injury, but that can be lessened a great deal by positioning the trampoline in a safe area and surrounding it with a net or a softer-type of fence. Other than that, they’re a fun lure to get kids to exercise and stay outside more.
Movie nights under the stars is hard to beat! You can have a movie marathon night over the weekend or a movie every night. If you set up a projector screen and get a projector, or invest in an inflatable screen, you can transform your backyard into an outdoor cinema! Add some lightings to trees, grab a blanket or sleeping bag, prop up some pillows, pop some popcorn and you’re ready to enjoy summer nights.
Hot tub relaxation
You might have a backyard, but that doesn’t mean you can afford a built-in hot tub or Jacuzzi. You can buy an affordable inflatable hot tub. Having one will make your backyard the coolest yard in the neighborhood, so be prepared for neighbors dropping by. It’s important that you get a size and model that’s just right for you, and if you check out InflatableHotTubHQ there are a variety of inflatable hot tubs that have different features. This way, it’s a lot easier for you to narrow down what it is you want from a hot tub. A good purchase would be a hot tub that has a built-in hard water system that softens the water, and a strong pump which is what circulates the water, and powers the jets. The jets are much more powerful than you would ever think and tubs come with everything you need except for the chemicals (chlorine tabs).They won’t take time to set up, nor much time to fill.
Bunk bed loft
Instead of just getting rid of a bed bunk or selling it, you can turn it into a stargazing retreat, equipped with its own ladder. Turning the bed into a loft makes it super comfortable and means spending more time out in the yard. You can sunbathe in it by day, catch a few winks during a cool afternoon breeze, and just spend some quality time in it, either on your own or with company.
If it’s coziness and comfort that you want, a bonfire pit will give you both. It provides the perfect gathering spot for friends and family, especially as summer nears its end. Roasting marshmallows and hotdogs while sharing stories with the people you love is one of the definitions of a perfect summer. You can find plenty of DIY ideas online that won’t cost much at all to build on your own.
More often than not a backyard can turn into a junkyard, filled with items that you don’t need. Get rid of that stuff! You can even start by having a backyard sale of the items you don’t use anymore. If your backyard is looking a bit sad, any of these ideas or a combination of a couple will cheer it up!
