Want to have a backyard staycation? Well, then you’ve come to the right place.
Vacations are great, but they can be expensive and not very Covid safe. So instead of putting time and money towards a traditional vacation, build your own backyard oasis! It’ll be there whenever you need it, and you’ll be proud that you made it yourself.
Keep reading to learn how to turn your backyard into an exotic vacation getaway.
Put In a Pool
Pools are luxurious and fun for the whole family. And on those hot summer days, you’ll have a great way to cool off in the privacy of your own yard.
But before jumping into this project, you will need to consider the cost and time it will take to build. And if you don’t have the space or money for a pool, add another form of water! Ponds and waterfalls look absolutely beautiful and downright exotic.
Get a Fire Pit
Fire pits can turn any backyard into a cozy little getaway.
On those cool summer nights, you can chop firewood, grab some friends, and roast s’mores. But it’s even better in extra chilly months when it’s too cold to be outside without a fire. And if you’re looking to spend a chunk of money on it, there are some luxury fire pits you can buy that will last you a while.
Pro tip: don’t have the money for it? Build a fire pit yourself!
Flowers add life and color that’ll give your backyard that vacation feeling. Some great plants include azaleas, hyacinths, and hydrangeas. Or if you want a tropical green plant, try a monstera.
Just note that before planting these flowers, you should check that they’re conducive to your climate. If not, there are plenty of other beautiful flowers you could plant!
Have Comfy Seating
If you want your backyard to feel comfortable, outdoor seating is a must. Consider outdoor furnishings like a hammock, lounge chairs, and couches. And if you really want it to feel like a resort, put in a canopy double bed!
Or if you entertain a lot, you could create a dining area with a wooden table and chairs.
Hang Twinkle Lights
Twinkle lights are the perfect little touch to any backyard space.
They’re not very costly, you can hang lots of them, and they don’t take much time to set up. You could hang them between trees, on a pergola, or even off the roof.
Pro tip: why stop at twinkle lights? Add a few candles for additional ambiance!
