15 Easy Things to Spruce Up Your Backyard Before Summer

When summer comes, you'll be spending more time outside with friends and family. From barbeques to simply sitting in nature, you'll get to enjoy all that the outdoors has to offer. The good news is that you don't even have to leave your property to enjoy summer. Here are easy things to spruce up your backyard before summer comes. 

  1. Regrow Your Lawn

Having a beautiful lawn takes hard work, but it's worth it. You can have the greenest, most luscious lawn in the neighborhood this summer, giving your home a beautiful landscape while making your neighbors envious. Lawn care isn't always easy, and sometimes your yard will look splotchy with areas of dead grass and areas of beautiful green grass. Now that winter is coming to an end; you can use this spring to regrow your lawn before summer arrives. 

  1. Outdoor Dining Area

An outdoor dining area allows your family and friends to eat outdoors more often this summer. Instead of sitting in lawn chairs, you can provide them with a proper table to sit around and enjoy the warm air with a delicious meal. A true outdoor dining area will make you feel like you have an extension of your home. 

  1. Shaded Sitting Area

While everyone loves the feeling of the warm sun on their skin, a shaded area allows you to enjoy the warm summer air without getting overheated or sunburnt. A sitting area with an umbrella can give your backyard a summer feel while providing you and your loved ones with protection from the sun. 

  1. Storage

Depending on what you use your backyard for, you might need storage that keeps your belongings safe from the weather. Whether you live in a place that gets stormy summers or you have a lot of outdoor stuff, you can use outdoor storage containers to help you keep your belongings safe from thieves and harsh weather. Better storage means more space for you and your family to enjoy the outdoors, including running and playing with your children. 

  1. Decorations

Decorating your backyard is easy with the right decorations. You can use decorations, including lighting, seating, and even plants, to make your backyard more comfortable for gatherings. Having portable lights available can help you and your family spend more time outdoors, no matter what time of day it is. 

  1. Grill

If you have an old grill that you've been using for years, it might be time for an upgrade. A fancier grill can make your backyard more functional, allowing you to show off your skills to family and friends when hosting a gathering. A quality propane grill will help you make better food to impress family and friends while helping you spend more time enjoying the great outdoors. 

  1. Hammock 

    Hammocks can make you turn your backyard into the perfect staycation spot. Hanging a hammock in your backyard gives you the ideal place to get some sun and fresh air while relaxing in nature. 

  2. Comfy Seating
  3. If you want to spend more time outdoors, you'll need comfortable seating beyond your dining seating. You can take your favorite book outside and enjoy more time in the sun with the right outdoor seating options. You can even turn your backyard into your workspace if you work remotely. 

  4. Fire Pit
  5. A fire pit is a great gathering spot for family and friends, allowing you to roast marshmallows or simply spend time watching the flames. You'll never regret relaxing in front of the fire pit after a long day of work. 

  6. Trampoline
  7. Everyone loves jumping on a trampoline. You can make your backyard everyone's favorite spot to hang out by adding a trampoline where everyone in your family can jump for joy. Trampolines can also keep your family active without making it feel like exercise. 

  8. Make a Kids Space
  9. If you have children, they'll need their own space to play. You can add lawn games to one area of your lawn to give your kids something to do on a Saturday afternoon while you read your favorite book. 

  10. Hot Tub
  11. There's nothing better than soaking in a hot tub after a long, stressful day. Hot tubs can even be used in the winter to help you relax, manage pain, and spend some much-needed alone time. 

  12. Water Slide
  13. Every kid's dream is to visit the water park every summer, but many parents are too busy working to take them. Instead of letting your children miss out on the opportunity to go to the water park, you can bring one small aspect of the park to them by getting an inflatable water slide in your backyard for the summer.

  14. Outdoor Rug
  15. An outdoor rug can help you bring some of the indoors outside to make your outdoor dining space homier. Rugs can be used to separate spaces on your porch or deck, and you can put a rug under your dining room table and other eating areas. Outdoor rugs also make going barefoot easier and more comfortable. Even if your deck is in great shape, it can still cause splinters. Rugs will keep your feet safe while giving them something comfy to step on to make you more comfortable. 

  16. Fence
  17. A fence can help you separate your property from your neighbor's, but it can also add color to the exterior of your home while keeping your pets and family safe. You can choose to paint your fence whatever color you want but always check with your HOA first to ensure you're not breaking any rules. By adding a fence, if you don't have one, you can give your dog a safe space to play that will keep them on your property, allowing them to get the exercise they need without having to leash up and go for a walk.

    Sprucing Up Your Yard

    Your backyard doesn't have to look and feel like everyone else's. If you enjoy spending time outdoors, day or night, you can make your backyard an extension of your home. Sprucing up your backyard can give you a great place to hang out while increasing your home's value


    Before you start decorating your yard, consider the things you like to do outside before designing the space. For example, if you have children who like to play games and run around, you don't want to add too much extra seating, limiting their space. 


    Whatever you choose to do, your backyard should entice your family to spend more time outdoors.
