Your home is your respite, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a little fun where you R&R. Today’s tips will help you turn your backyard into an amazing space that will envy your
neighbors for miles.

Elevate your backyard oasis

Are you ready to design your backyard oasis? To experience the tropical paradise feeling of R&R or the experience of flowing down the lazy river at a water park without ever leaving your own home, it’s right at the tip of your fingers.

This home showcases the best use of its outdoor oasis. It’s filled with an abundance of thriving landscapes, beautiful flowers, and an entertaining outdoor space with a pool. Take a plunge into the pool to escape the hot summer heat, or swim a couple of laps. Create a classic space for those hot summer days. What makes your outdoor oasis unique is that you have complete control over creating it however you want. Make your outdoor oasis completely special to your home.

The lazy river is just about everyone’s favorite feature at the water park. But, traditional lazy river systems can cost more than $500,000. Thankfully, some pool supply companies manufacture current flow systems. This will give you the same effect as a lazy river for a fraction of the price. 

Start with your garage

Have you recently downsized or, since spring cleaning, noticed you need some extra storage space? Your garage is where you will store all of your toys, big and small. If you don’t already have a dedicated space, check HelloProject for contractors. They can help you add a workshop or steel building. Designing your backyard oasis is simple.

Bright ideas to make your backyard oasis safe

Part of what makes a house a home is the feeling of safety. No matter what upgrade you decide to install, an essential part of ensuring your home’s security is the effective use of exterior lighting. It’s necessary for your exterior lighting to be safe and functional.  

Outdoor lighting can heighten your outdoor living space’s functionality. Whether adding lighting for your entertaining areas by a pool or your outdoor kitchen, these places need to be well-lit to be safe for you and your guests—leaving your guests with a great first impression. 

Several different lights are designed specifically for the spaces around your home. Solar-Powered Floodlights, Halogen Floodlights, LED Flood Lights, High-Intensity Discharge Lighting, Motion-Activated Lighting, Timed Exterior Lighting, and more. Check-in with HelloProject for contractors to help you understand the best fit that combines functionality and security for your home.

Add a multi-purpose hard surface

Your son wants a basketball court. Your daughter wants a volleyball court. You want a running track. Your wife loves to play tennis. But you only have one room to make a renovation, so how do you choose between the four? Or do you need to? According to Sports and Recreation Associates, basketball, tennis, and volleyball courts are constructed the same way. You could easily have a large surface prepared to use for all three sports as well as a running track. 

Minigolf, anyone?

You can create your own backyard mini golf course with a bit of wood, felt, and tools. And the cost is only around $150 or less per panel!   A fun project that you can do with the kids in a single weekend. The best part about minigolf panels is that they can easily be stored when not they are not in use. 

You probably need a zip line

Zip lining allows you to soar through the trees like a bird. But you don’t have to go deep into the woods to have a similar experience from home. The Brain And The Brawn blog offers lots of great tips on choosing and installing a backyard zip line.

Dig for an in-ground trampoline

According to Get Trampoline, there are divisive pros and cons of having an in-ground trampoline. Installing an in-ground trampoline is another excellent way to utilize your backyard space for your family’s fun and fitness goals. As long as you don’t mind digging or prefer the look of having your trampoline flush to the ground, this might be a good option for you.

Raise a glass

Since the pandemic, home entertainment is becoming increasingly more popular for at-home bars. Rather than going out, many people are choosing to stay home and are deciding to invite their friends or family over to enjoy the comfort of their homes. Not to mention enjoying all the savings from skipping out on dining out or, should we say, all the extra drinks at dinner too! That will quickly add to the bill.

The modern home bar creates a welcoming entertainment space within or outside the home while adding a level of luxury and relaxation to your everyday living. There are plenty of options when creating your at-home bar, but ultimately the style you choose for your at-home bar is more about loving how the space makes you feel. It’s a chance to unwind and spend more time with your spouse or friends in the comfort of your perfect oasis that matters most. 

Your backyard space is a blank canvas. Light it up and get creative by adding your favorite entertainment features. Whether you install a multi-purpose surface and elevate your outdoor oasis with a pool, a lazy river, or a portable mini golf course, each new addition to your entertainment arsenal will ensure that your backyard is where the kids want to be!
