Transform Your Backyard into a Relaxation Haven
Whether you have a large or a small backyard, it can be turned into a relaxation haven where you can unwind, socialize and have fun especially during summer season or a pandemic lockdown. Backyards do not have to plain, boring gardens but they can be extensions of your home and a great value addition.
With a little effort and creativity, you can easily turn your backyard into a place where you love to relax and spend time. Here are some ways and ideas to inspire you!
Keep it clean
You can find yourself neglecting your backyard if it has too many unnecessary things such as children’s playthings, unwanted or broken outdoor furniture and so on. This can create a sense of chaos. To fix this, get rid of old, unused stuff. If you have overgrown trees, shrubs or weeds, then trimming them on a regular basis is a must. By clearing your outdoor space and decluttering, you will surely feel the difference and start to enjoy the backyard space more.
Greenery and landscaping
You can turn your backyard into your favourite staycation spot. This can be easily achieved with carefully planned landscaping. For example, when you live in colder regions like Canada, you can choose to plant perennials. Choose from seasonal plants like tulips, roses, lilies and mix them up with small shrubs and do not forget to add elements and structures like stone pathway, gravel, planters and so on. Also, if you don’t have the experience or lack time, you can always hire a professional landscape designer to do the job for you.
Seating and shade
These two are important elements required for a relaxing backyard space. When getting outdoor furniture, make sure you choose furniture that can be used or stored easily when summer is out. To give you shade during the summer, you can add a patio umbrella, a pergola or a gazebo depending on your backyard space. If you want to turn your backyard into a relaxing oasis, for furniture you can get lounge chairs, hammock, egg chair or even add a swing.
What is a summer without having a backyard BBQ party? You can add a long island to be used as outdoor kitchen or even have a small fire pit. This will surely add a fun element to your backyard space where you can host birthdays for your kids, BBQ parties for your friends or family or simply enjoy a weekend brunch with your family.
Light up your backyard
Lighting is another important feature that can transform your backyard from the mundane to the extraordinary. You can add fairy lights to your gazebo or to wooden structures in the backyard. Also, you can add colourful solar lights to the landscaping to highlight them during evening. Lanterns of various sizes and shapes can also greatly enhance the look and feel of your backyard. Whether you are hosting evening parties or spending solitary time, lighting can create the perfect ambiance for your backyard oasis.
Add a water element
Although not all backyards can have its own pool or Jacuzzi, you can make your backyard stand out by adding a unique statement piece such as a water fountain, a bird bath or a small lily pond. This way when you are out in your backyard, you will surely feel the calm and serenity that comes with it.
