Five tips for giving your backyard a summer makeover



No matter where you are in the world, the backyard of your home is going to be a place that you go to chill out, to relax and to entertain and enjoy your downtime. For many people their backyard is a place of great joy and is one of the best and most-used areas of their homes. For others though, the backyard can be a place that they’re going to get around to fixing up eventually, but just haven’t gotten around to it yet. If you have a backyard that could do with a little bit of tender loving care and you’re in need of some help, then read on! I have created a list of some of the easiest things you can do to give your backyard a makeover just in time for summer in the hopes that you’ll be able to spend more time outdoors to enjoy the beautiful weather that the summer months bring.


Install some new pavers

A nice, even and flat space for your backyard can come in the form of a deck, or it can come in the form of some pavers. I have a friend in Western Australia who was scratching his head about whether to get decking or pavers in Perth, but he soon plumped for the pavers when he saw my awesome backyard. Pavers are a low cost solution for many people and you can choose the size and area very easily.


Get a water feature

You might not have the space or the ability to put in a pool, but you can get that soothing watery feeling with the addition of a water feature or a fountain. There’s nothing more lush and lovely than the sound of gently flowing water in the backyard, and if you pair your fountain with a couple of ferns and some nice rocks, you’ll find that the backyard becomes your summer oasis in no time.


Get a new patio set

Still got that crumbly old couch and table set for your backyard? Might be time to replace them don’t you think? You can get a great deal on some furniture from your local hardware store, and if you’re on a budget, you can source something excellent from the trading post. Think about getting something hardwearing and something that’s made well, as it’s going to last longer for you and continue to give you joy long after you purchase it.


Install some mood lighting

As the sun sets, your fairy lights flicker on and your solar mood lighting begins to cast a soft glow on you and your friends all sitting around and enjoying the last moments of soft pink light before night steals in. Sound nice? In order to achieve this kind of hosting excellence, you need the aforementioned lights. Grab some on the cheap from the local hardware shop or from a gardening centre.


Get a fire pit

A good fire pit isn’t a difficult thing to achieve; you can actually construct one safely yourself at home, simply get online and take a look at how you can manage it. You just need to have a bit of space available to you in your backyard, and then you can keep the woodpile stocked and ready for those impromptu barbecues at your house when your friends all descend on your place.


I hope that this little list of things that you can do to revamp your backyard will prove helpful for you, and that you manage to get the backyard of your dreams in time for the hot long summer nights. Happy decorating and revamping!
