The spring season is when many people start entertaining and spending more time outdoors as the temperatures rise. If your backyard is bare and bland, it can make it difficult to keep your guests occupied and provide them with an enjoyable time at your home. There are a few features to incorporate into your backyard to spruce up the setting and make it more versatile.
Build an Outdoor Kitchen
Outdoor kitchens are increasing in popularity because of how convenient they are to use when you need to cook for a large group of people. Instead of bringing the food back and forth from the kitchen, you can have everything in one place while spending time with your guests. The outdoor kitchen can include a bar where you can serve drinks and make conversation.
Build a Fireplace
Although bonfire pits are a common feature to find in outdoor settings, they can be small and limiting with how much heat they release. Outdoor fireplaces are attractive and can become one of the main focal points in the backyard. Not only are they attractive, but they can be used for roasting s’mores and cooking pizza. You can even hang string lights from the chimney and connect them to the roof of your house to create a whimsical and beautiful look at night.
Add a Wall Garden
Privacy fences are an important part of any backyard where you plan to spend a lot of time outdoors. However, they can often look bare and cold. Instead, create a walled garden where you can display a variety of plants and flowers, which will contribute to the design of your landscaping. The wall can even feature different types of vegetation, which will be a talking point.
Install an Outdoor Projector Screen
An outdoor projector screen will allow you to host movie nights during the warmer months of the year. Place the screen on a large fence or the side of your house where your family members and friends can gather around. Then, add grass or turf in front of the screen where your guests can lounge around and watch a classic film.
Adding new features to your backyard will not only allow you to get more use out of the space but can boost your home’s value addition, but you’ll be able to enhance the quality of the setting and create new memories with your loved ones.
