Looking to get your backyard ready for summer in Australia but don’t know where to start?
Summer is definitely on its way, and once it’s here, all we ever want to do is get outside and enjoy the warm, bright sunshine.
Unfortunately getting outside isn’t too exciting when your backyard is boring and dull. To get your garden up to scratch so that you, your friends and family can enjoy yourselves a little more this year, here are a few top tips on how to get your backyard ready for summer time.
Add A Patio
My favourite thing about summer in Australia is being able to enjoy my patio space every day/night. A backyard patio represents a fantastic place to unwind after a long day at work. Here you can relax, kick back, have a few drinks, read a book, entertain mates - all while soaking up the summer’s sun. They’re the perfect backyard addition!
… And Add Fairy Lights
Adding fairy lights to your patio creates ambience when the sun sets. It’s super easy to add lights (any kind), and the effect will be exhilarating. Perfect for evening parties too!
Add A Deck
If your backyard needs an upgrade this summer, a deck is a great way to do it.
Decks are textbook for hosting outdoor parties and spending time with your friends and family during the summer months. They also add aesthetic appeal to your backyard, boost the value of your home, and create extra outdoor living space.
Now, where’s the barbecue …
Add Outdoor Blinds
Without outdoor blinds, a backyard can look a tad bit neglected. Outdoor blinds are striking additions that enhance the look of your property, while offering you plenty of protection and privacy.
Outdoor blinds are particularly useful when the sun gets too hot. (Which we all know happens a lot in Australia.) It provides protection against the sun’s harmful rays, and stops you from getting burnt or developing sunstroke. They also help you to better regulate the breeze on windier days, protects against dust, and boosts the overall aesthetics of your home.
Add A Water Feature
Water features can add so much pleasure if you install one (or more) in your garden. Water features are super easy to maintain, and you can use them to create a natural habitat for fish. It will also attract wildlife and birds to your place, which will add colour, life, vibrancy and interest.
Make Sure Everything Works Well Together
Your property won’t look very good if you carelessly throw things together. Remember that everything should make sense!
To this end, it’s important to choose your colours wisely, really think about where everything will be built (attached or not attached to your home), and think about how everything will blend together.

What are the advantages of pavilions in the land down under?
If you’re thinking of adding a pavilion to your garden, you might be excited by the spectacular vision you have in your head - but you might also be worried by the potential cost, effort and resources that are required to make it happen.
The advantages of pavilions in Australian gardens far outweigh the cons. Thanks to our gloriously long and hot summers, pavilions make so much sense in this part of the world. Here are a few reasons why including a pavilion in your garden could be the sweetest decision you make this year.
Pavilions Are Great For Outdoor Parties
Picture the scene: You’ve invited your friends around to your house this summer for a party. You’ve got the food and drinks organised, the music picked out, and you’ve dusted off your dancing shoes. The weather’s even turned it on for you.
The only thing that’s missing is somewhere to entertain all your guests. Sure, you have inside, but wouldn’t a nice big open space out in the fresh air be perfect.
Then, a big black cloud has appeared in the sky, and it looks as though it’s going to rain, hard.
If only you had a pavilion, all your worries would disappear. Covered from the elements, a pavilion brings everyone together. It’s the perfect gathering place for any home!
Pavilions Make You Want To Spend More Time Outdoors
Spending time outdoors when the sun is out is important. The sun can make us happy by increasing our production of serotonin, while vitamin D from the suns rays come with all kinds of positive health benefits.
You want to sit in your backyard more now that summer has arrived, but you know that you’ll miss out on all your treats and luxuries that are inside your house.
After all, a garden has no television, no video games console, no sofa - no anything! Right?
If you install a pavilion in your yard, you can easily install everything else you need and want, including your TV, your video games console - and a sofa. Think of a pavilion as an outside living room and you’re halfway there.
Your Property Will Look Stunning
Install the right-looking pavilion and it will compliment your property and take it to the next level.
If your backyard is looking okay but a little bare right now, it’s probably missing a centre-piece. A pavilion is the perfect centre-piece and could easily make yours the most eye-catching in the whole neighbourhood.
Pavilions Encourage You To Look After The Rest Of Your Outdoors
Once a stunning pavilion has been installed, you’ll likely be more motivated to look after the rest of your outdoor space. With a bespoke pavilion dazzling your greenery, it’s easy to then make the effort to bring the rest of your outdoors up to its standards.
Perhaps the biggest advantages of pavilions in Australia is purely and simply that they’re special, and they take your garden from an outdoor piece of land that you use now and then, to a luxury space that you and your friend’s can’t get enough of.
