Top Fun Backyard Design Ideas

As the recent pandemic has changed how we all live and value our homes, our yards have truly become more valuable these days than ever. If you are thinking about enhancing your own backyard to achieve your own pleasure at home, take a look at some of these great ideas.

Play Features

Get away from the TV and sofa and gather with your friends outdoors for some play time. Pour a drink and fire up the grill while you play some of your favorite games together. Game ideas include a bocce ball court, putting green or setting up a corn hole platform set.

Exercise Area

Feel the burn in the outdoors with an outdoor gym. All you need is some designated space, a few of your favorite weather proof pieces of equipment, and you use a simple sailcloth panel to provide shade and protection from the elements. 

Meditation Space

Sometimes you need to connect with nature and decompress and recharge from the troubles of the world. The solution can be to set up a yoga or meditation space as a place to rejuvenate. You can find a quiet spot surrounded by plants that is perfect for a deck or your mat.

Water Features

Water features can really range in scope from cheap to more involved and expensive. On the simple side an outdoor shower can be a great idea to experience the best refreshing way to cool off and get clean in nature. These showers can also be quite convenient for washing pets too! Next idea would be a hot tub for cooler days or evenings to soak and relax under the stars. Finally, if your yard and budget permits, there are all shapes and sizes of pools to choose from that suit your likings.

Relaxation Zones

Here is where you can create all sorts of options for outdoor enjoyment. For simple relaxation solutions you can use hammocks, swing beds and sun beds which are great for lounging, reading or even napping. You can then ramp it up to the next level and make an outdoor living room with couches, tables, outdoor carpet and create a space just as you would inside. Other options include setting up a dining area with table and chairs for gathering with friends and family for meals, playing games or even doing some light work at home.
