It’s summer. The good weather is finally here and you are ready for a vacation. Whether you don’t have the time or the funds, you can bring the resort home. Transform your backyard into a haven that is the envy of the neighborhood. Your family, friends, and neighbors will know where to go when you create your own getaway. It doesn’t take a lot of money. With some imagination, you can have an escape waiting for you at the end of each day when you need to escape the daily grind.
Kick Back and Relax
Begin with patio furniture. You need a table and chair set, not to mention lounge chairs. To make sure you have a soft place to land, order foam for each cushion at the Foam Factory. You can plump up your seats and give everyone a comfortable place to rest or visit. Whether you are having a gathering, catching up with your family, or enjoying alone time, you need a place sit.
Keep Your Cool
You need to beat the heat during the summer months. You can put up a tent or put in a pool when you want to cool down during the hottest time of the year. An awning is helpful as well. Take advantage of shade trees and make that the most popular area to congregate. Consider a pond, fountain, or decorative waterfall as attractive additions that are refreshing.
Break Out the Good Food
You have to have good food when you are taking a break. Bring the barbecue home with a grill and small refrigerator. Keep everyone happy with simple, outdoor favorites. You can make it complete with a bar. It’s simple to make a small counter area where you can serve a variety of drinks. With the right thing to drink and eat, everyone will be happy.
Don’t Forget the Lights
You’ll need lighting for your backyard resort. A string of white lights in your bushes or trees will transform it into something out of a fairytale. You can put in lights along the path to make sure everyone can find their way in and out. Small lamps for your tables will give you a romantic or more intimate effect. Keep it simple and you will have a vacation every day that you get home. Step out in your backyard and you’re there.
