A fire pit can be a mesmerizing focal point to your backyard. Not only is it a nice structural addition to go along with your landscaping, it can provide countless hours of entertainment and socialization. Similar to a bonfire on a beach, a fire pit can be a soothing way to relax after a long day by yourself or with friends. You can either have a permanent fire pit built by a professional, or purchase a portable version. Add some tiki torches to make your backyard feel like a resort. Remember to check with your city ordinances to be sure you can have a fire pit in your back yard.
Install an Outdoor Bar
A bar is a great addition to any landscape design and will provide enjoyment and functionality. Outdoor bars are ideal for when you’re hosting an event, as you won’t have to continually go inside to make drinks and you can spend more time socializing with your guests. You can personalize your outdoor bar with custom accessories, glasses, coasters, etc. Grab some bar stools and consider adding outdoor lighting to create a welcoming ambiance.
Nothing says “relaxation” like a bubbling hot tub in your backyard. Hot tubs can be great for any situation, such as a day party or an evening get together. The best place to install them is somewhere close to your backdoor, as a long trek in the winter can dissuade even the toughest individual from getting in the water. Hot tubs used to be seen as a luxury that only the rich could afford, but now they come in all different price range and styles. Perhaps you want a hot tub outfitted with twenty jets and high-definition speakers, or maybe you just want something small that you and your significant other can relax in after work. Either way, a hot tub is a welcome addition to your backyard.
Outdoor Television Screen
Turn your backyard into a movie theater by installing an outdoor TV screen. There are several options you can choose from, such as a permanent pull-down screen or an inflatable screen. You can use a projector or your computer to run the signal through the screen. If you want to be able to host sporting event parties, think about wiring your television outside. Adding a little technology like a TV screen to your landscape will make your friends and family envious, and entice them to come over and watch their favorite show.
