As summer approaches, the time to get your garden in order is here. Long nights and warm weather are the perfect conditions to be outside. But what if your garden resembles a prison yard? Fear not, here are some top tips to make your neighbors envious.
#1. Football Pitch
What better place to relax and have a kick about in the sun than your own garden? A grass surface may seem ideal, but how will it fare in the winter months? Well, there is an affordable alternative: artificial turf. Imagine all the time you can save! Less time y tirelessly preparing and maintaining the grass and more time to enjoy the weather.
You can even go the full nine yards with grass line markings. Pair a professionally marked pitch with a set of goal posts and you’re good to go!
A hammock is an easy way to introduce the perfect relaxation spot into your garden. Have you ever seen anyone unhappy in a hammock? Not possible. This is a great option if you don’t have the funds to splash out. Just imagine a warm summer’s day, swinging in your hammock, drink in hand, you could be anywhere in the world!
#3. Outdoor Cinema
An outdoor cinema is a reasonably simple way to transform your garden. All you need is a projector, the rest you can fashion from household items.
For the screen, all you need to do is hang up an old white sheet, and voila, you have a movie theatre! Beanbags make ideal seats, but if you don’t have any of these, then a picnic blanket will suffice. The final things you need, then, are snacks and good company; these shouldn’t be hard to find.
#4. Hot Tub
This option is more on the expensive scale, but it’s oh so worth it! Life can be hectic, with stress around every corner; a hot tub is a perfect solution, just let the bubbles take the stress away!
Hydrotherapy is regarded as one of the best forms of stress relief. It’s also simple, all you have to do is kick back in a pool of warm bubbling water. Just like that, your garden is transformed into a relaxation spa.
#5. Al Fresco Gym
If you’re a fitness freak, then the thought of a home gym will have you in a sweat! When the weather is warm, the last thing you want to do is be inside working out. This option means you can work out to your heart’s content and enjoy all the joy summer has to offer.
You may already have a gym nestled in your garage, but this is even easier! All you need to do is move the equipment into your garden and fix some tarp up to keep it all dry. What more could you want?
