It’s getting closer… Summer is right around the corner! Summer in NC means the air is thick and the living is easy. We’ll wile away the time with friends over burgers and beers and host a few backyard cocktail parties. The kids will roll in the grass, catch fireflies and count the stars at night. And all of this will happen right in your backyard!
When was the last time you dreamed a little dream on what your ideal backyard would look like? If you haven’t thought about it in a while, how about a few suggestions that will not only make your friends and family happy, but any of these will make you proud to show it off and call it your very own Oasis!
Who needs a drive-in when you can watch movies from your very own backyard? Imagine a little “Beach Blanket Bingo” or “Grease” playing on the big screen! Your set up can be as simple as a sheet on the side of the house or a full set up worthy of Hollywood!
Not Your Granny’s Pool:
Gone are the days where a plastic tub filled with water is enough to keep you cool in the summer time!
Stone Patio Settings:
You can have a deck and then you can have a PATIO. The wonderful thing about patios is that they don’t need to be restained year after year. You can go simple or you can go big. It’s all up to you and your budget!
I admit.. I covet an outdoor kitchen. I dream of having Guy Fieri visiting and cooking up a beautiful meal in my backyard. My next house will have some kind of outdoor kitchen and I mean more than just a Weber.
Permanent S’more Pit:
Well you can make anything in your fire pit, but wouldn’t S’mores be the perfect ending to a night in a backyard with all these features we’ve talked about?
Honestly, you can add elements from each of these five to create the perfect backyard oasis. But which one would be YOUR favorite?
