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.
