Your backyard probably hasn’t gotten the love it deserves over the colder months or this past year at all. It’s time to get your outdoor oasis up to party standard as social gatherings and in-person events make a comeback this summer. Whether you have neglected your outdoor space more than usual with less visitors or are looking to create a space from scratch, here are some tips to turn your backyard into a summer party destination.
Give some extra attention to your lawn and garden
The first thing that guests notice when arriving to your home is landscaping. If your garden is looking a bit tired, it’s time to perk it up and transform it into a welcoming space for guests. Spring is the best time to prune your summer blooming shrubs and the ample moisture right now gives seeds a good start to growth. Take advantage of this by over seeding so that your lawn is green and lush. You can also prep for new plants by clearing weeds and debris from flower beds.
Stock up on yard games
Up your game with cornhole, volleyball, and oversized yard games. There’s no better way to diverge everyone outside for quality time and it’s perfect for entertaining a group of all ages.
Prep the grilling station
It’s not a barbecue without the food. Consider a potluck party where guests each bring dishes to lighten your load. Grilling alone takes a lot of attention, so prepare ahead of time. Clean the grill and make sure you have enough gas or charcoal to keep it going
Consider outdoor upgrades
New lighting, furniture, and an outdoor kitchen can make all the difference in entertaining guests. All of these are investments that add value to your home and help your family enjoy summertime to its fullest. Extra features like fireplaces or covered patios can even make your space enjoyable year-round.
