5 Ways to Make Your Backyard a Summer Haven

One of our favorite summertime activities is hanging out in the backyard with friends and family. While cookouts, cornhole, and tent camping with the kids are always a lot of fun, there’s nothing better than relaxing in your own personal haven. Here are a few tips on how you can turn your backyard into the ultimate summer fun spot.

Take Your Toys Outside! 

Everyone loves summer and the variety of entertainment options that come with it. If you’re looking for fun at home, then it’s time to make your backyard summer-friendly with some outdoor games. Whether you are a bocce ball enthusiast or an excellent frisbee player, we can all agree that getting outside for fresh air and sunshine is what’s most important.

Colors, Colors, & More Colors! 

One great way to make your backyard more inviting is to add color to it. Flowers, a bright bench or colorful Adirondack chairs, and soft, green grass for barefoot walks are just a few ways you can add color to your home. Repainting your fence can also give your backyard a fresh, new feel. 

It’s Grilling Season!

Cookouts are a staple of the summer season, and if there is any must-have in your backyard, it’s a grill. Whatever your preference – smoker, gas, electric, or traditional charcoal grill –, you are sure to impress family, friends, and neighbors with roasted veggie kabobs or nicely grilled steaks.

Light Up Your Patio

Add warmth and sophistication to your outdoor space. Set up some lanterns or hang a set of bistro lights — or maybe even reuse a Christmas set — and make your backyard more welcoming and your nights longer. 

Make Room for Fun

You don’t need much to make your outdoor space look special this summer. It’s all about working with what you already have and only buying the essentials. If you don't have a huge space, tuck away the items you've been storing outside in a self storage unit to make room for yard games or patio furniture. Then at the end of the season, you can put away summer items in your Security Self Storage unit to keep your belongings in shape, well-taken care of, and ready for next year.
