1. Add In A Pool
If you love lounging by the side of the neighborhood pool with a drink in your hand during hot summer days, or if you have children who love splashing around in the water, unfortunately, many pools may be closed this season. With many states continuing their shelter-in-place- orders into the later summer months, it’s looking less and less likely that people who love spending their days next to the pool will be able to do so.
A way around this is to add a radiant pool to your own backyard. This is a piece that can make your home the center of fun in the neighborhood and it can give your kids something active and entertaining to do while still keeping their distance from others. It’s also an item that could improve the value of your home. Many potential homeowners want a pool in their backyard.
2. Expand Your Garden
If you’re someone who has gardened in the past, or if you’re new to gardening, this can be a great way to spruce up your backyard. With panic buying happening at stores all across the United States at the moment, having a garden is also a productive way that you can provide vegetables for you and your family.
Gardening is also a great teaching tool for your kids. It can teach responsibility during the summer months when they don’t have school work, and show them the value of taking care of something on a routine basis. It also allows them to experience the growth of plants in real-time. If your children have been learning about plants or photosynthesis in their science rooms at all this year, try and teach them about it further as you grow your garden.
3. Add In A Raised Flower Bed
Even if you’re someone who doesn’t want to worry about tilling dirt some of the hassles that gardening in the backyard can bring, buying raised flower beds and filling them with dirt is a simple solution if you still want to spend time growing plants this spring. If you don’t want to buy your flower boxes, many websites can show you how to build them for a relatively cheap price.
Flower boxes are another great way to bring some additional beauty into your backyard. As summer continues, you’ll also start to see butterflies, and even some hummingbirds, start to visit your yard.
