4 Tips for Creating the Backyard of Your Dreams This Summer

In America’s workaholic culture, vacations are becoming more of a rarity than ever before. In fact, studies show that an alarming 41% of Americans don’t use their paid time off.

This summer, make everyday a staycation by transforming your backyard into a well-deserved getaway. Enhance your backyard vacation experience with these 4 tried-and-true tips:


1. Create a haven for relaxation

Appeal to each of your five senses for clues to creating a full-scale experience. For a quick and easy visual transformation, start by clearing the clutter. Next, add some calming elements and color pops such as brightly colored chairs, a bird house, or hand-painted garden rocks.

Start a fragrant container herb garden, or plant roses, honeysuckle bushes, or even a grape vine.


2. Make it fun and you’ll never want to leave

Add in a few imaginative play elements for the kids. Think: fairy garden, butterfly feeder, a reading nook, and some digging tools. And don’t forget fun for the adults! Ask yourself what brings you comfort. Perhaps that’s a small table for your morning coffee, a hummingbird feeder with nearby camera, a hammock for lounging in the shade, or a summer BBQ station for entertaining friends.


3. Transform your space into an oasis with a wood privacy fence

The right backyard fence makes all the difference. Make your space uniquely yours by securing privacy from neighbors and nearby visible streets. Be sure to find a fence company with a proven, time-tested commitment to quality lumber, custom building, and durability.


4. Enhance the natural beauty

Imagine and design your landscaping with the full year in mind. Here in the Southeast, it’s possible to have beauty year-round. We recommend: tulips and daffodils for spring, roses and hydrangea for summer, mums for fall, and camellia for the winter.

And now, all that’s left is to open the back door and enjoy your vacay! Spend your summer relishing sunny, relaxing days with your whole family in your new backyard paradise.
